About our Brewery

TAPS Fish House & Brewery was founded in 1999. Many of our beers reflect the classic brewing traditions of Europe, including England, Germany, and Belgium, while others are indicative of the creativity and innovation that are the hallmarks of the American Craft Beer scene.

TAPS’ repertoire of ales and lagers is highly varied and reflects a nod to tradition with a focus on perfection and innovation. The brewing team produces approximately 3000 kegs, or 46,500 gallons of beer annually. Our brewers supply TAPS in Brea, Corona and Irvine, as well as our sister restaurants, The Catch in Anaheim and Lillie’s Q in Brea Downtown. TAPS also distributes fine beers to restaurants and pubs throughout Southern California. We have received national and international acclaim for barrel-aging programs, which produce cult classics such as Remy’s Pappy.

We source the finest ingredients from around the world and utilize the best brewing procedures to create truly great beer: “World Class in Every Glass.” The hops and barley are meticulously sourced in order to emulate the fine beers and brewing regions of the world.  We utilize proprietary strains of yeast, reverse osmosis filtration, and tailor our water chemistry and processes every time beer is made.

TAPS’ passion for perfection has been recognized on the regional, state, national and international levels—to date we have received over 70 medals for our fine beers. TAPS barrel-aged products have also garnered national and international acclaim and are treasured by collectors worldwide.
