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.
