The Anaheim Brewery Tasting Room is open from 11 am to 9 pm on Saturday. The light-filled room is about 60 ft. in length with generous views of the copper brewing equipment. Long-time Anaheim residents will recall the Covered Wagon Saloon which unfortunately closed in 2002; the restored Covered Wagon bar is a feature of Anaheim Brewery’s new Tasting Room. Full of Anaheim’s rich history, locals and visitors can celebrate the grand opening with flights of the beers that were imbibed almost a century ago!
We invite the media to come to Anaheim Brewery on Saturday and witness the strong local community support and capture the sheer delight and excitement from patrons.
