CHOCOLATTE

CHOCOLATE PORTER

Chocolate explosion! The chocolate mines supply us with the necessary ingredients to make this ale. Miners use sticks of dynamite to blow chunks of chocolate into rail cars heading straight to the brewery. We mine the most chocolate and espresso flavor from select grains to produce a massive chocolate flavor that rolls over the tongue into a gentle finish with a hint of espresso. ChocōLatté aims to please those with a cocoa addiction.

THE KRHOPEN

INDIA PALE ALE

Legend has it that in the mid 1800s, some of the ships delivering beer from England to India chose to make a stop off the California coast to dry hop their precious cargo. But this wasn't an easy task. To harvest these hops they would have to dive into the underwater hop fields and face the beast known as the krHOPen. The krHOPen would use its tenacious tentacles to protect its beloved hop cones. Brewed with Nugget, Apollo, Cascade and Chinook, we dedicate this IPA to the brewers lost at sea fighting the beast.

POLLEN NATION

HONEY BLONDE

We need more honey! The worker bees are putting in overtime to get the brewers the Orange Blossom Honey we use in this full bodied ale. This delectable flagship beer is so popular, we brew it daily. Pollen Nation has the perfect balance of smooth honey flavor and an aroma of sweet nectar. Our honey blonde drinks with a light crisp body and leaves a hint of honey on the tongue. We at Evans Brewing Company are fans of these worker bees; therefore, we are the
Pollen Nation!

OAKLORE

BROWN ALE

According to "Oaklore," Orange County was originally covered in giant sequoias and oak trees. Loggers naively chopped down trees to make lumber and oak beer mugs. Eventually, seeing an abundance of lumber and a lack of trees, they planted orange groves, figuring harvesting oranges would be much easier than chopping trees down all day long. The orange groves flourished, and the area eventually became known as Orange County. Brewed to lumberjack standards, this brown ale is aged on oak chips, giving its caramel and nutty body a sweet hint of vanilla and oak aroma.

FUTURE CAN OFFERINGS

THE ORIGINAL

PILSNER

This is the beer that started it all. With a subdued aroma of oral hops and sweet grains are a stellar expression of the style’s understated charm, this lager is an award winner. Soft grain underscores malt sweetness that runs down the tongue a step ahead of spritz carbonation. Faint hop bitterness combines with the prickly bubbles for a decidedly crisp finish. Agile, flavorful and refreshing, this beer’s built for everyday drinking.

BREAKFAST BLACK

BLACK PILSNER

This lightless brew breathes powerful dark malts: rich cocoa entwines with roasted malt scents while light traces of coffee wind through the bouquet. Despite its ominous black appearance, this pilsner washes buoyantly over the tongue. Roasted malts stream down the middle, while dark chocolate adds depth to the savor. Coffee notes emerge in the back where its sweetness is balanced by earthy hops. A bitter malt twang nips the sides of the tongue and merges with an earthy wave for a gentle finish.

Evans Brewing Company operates out of three locations in Orange County, California: a 17bbl brewery in Irvine; our office and warehouse in Santa Ana; and our restaurant and taproom, The Public House by Evans Brewing Company, in downtown Fullerton. 

The Evans Brewery, established in 1994, is the oldest craft brewery in Orange County and one of the oldest in all of Southern California. Located inside the McCormick and Schmick’s Restaurant at 2000 Main Street, the brewery has an annual capacity of approximately 12,000+ barrels. Our small, labor-intensive operation produces nine permanent styles with many seasonal and small batch offerings. With eight 50bbl fermenters, one 17bbl fermenter and a 50bbl brite tank, we brew beers from light blonde ales, to complex Russian Imperial Stouts. We package our beers using a homemade PLC-controlled, dual keg cleaner/filler and a six head Meheen bottling machine.
            
We do not have a tasting room at our Irvine brewery, but all of our beers are available in the Pilsner Room at McCormick and Schmick’s, with a clear view of our brewery. Visit at the right time, and you can even watch us brewing as you enjoy an Evans beer. 

The Public House by Evans Brewing Company is now open in downtown Fullerton. As our official tasting room and restaurant, The Public House features all of our beers – as well as beers from a few other local Orange County breweries – on draft, paired with our own signature dishes. For more details, please visit The Public House page.
