Laguna Beach Brewery & Grille Review
Since 1994, Laguna Beach Brewery & Grille, Laguna’s first on-site Brewery has evolved into a unique pairing of delicious Mexican cuisine and handcrafted beer. Everything you ever wanted to know about beer can be answered by General Manager, Giovanni Labile. Currently, they offer a Belgian Blonde, Amber Ale, Pale Ale and just released, Double IPA, all painstakingly brewed on the premises. Try Giovanni’s personalized Beerlicious cocktail which combines spirits and beer to create a thirst-quenching beverage sure to be a hit this summer.
The Brewery is packed with culinary surprises beginning with Chef Valentin Cañedo, whose exceptional background spans from Mazatlán to five star Baja hotels, to creating an upscale menu deemed Modern Mexican. Many regions of Mexico are represented in the dishes with undeniable Mexican flavors. The Surf and Turf Braserito is a mixed barbecue of shrimp, scallops, crab legs, skirt steak, half chicken and chistorra chorizo sausage, served with grilled peppers and onions, corn on the cob and sliced avocado. Olé!
The restaurant is quickly gaining a reputation among locals for happy times featuring nightly entertainment with rock, reggae, and jazz from popular local bands plus a comedy showcase on Wednesday nights. Appealing further to residents is a $10 secret menu available Mondays, and Thursdays after 5pm when local employees can also enjoy the special pricing.
Laguna Beach Brewery & Grille is located at 237 Ocean Ave. (949) 497-3381
