San Diego's Karl Strauss Brewing Expands Small Batch Program & SoCal Footprint With Announcement Of New Satellite Brewery In Anaheim

August 4, 2016

Karl Strauss Brewing Company will open a new satellite brewery and brewpub in Anaheim anticipated to open by the end of the month. Directly across the street from Angel Stadium, this new location will expand the brewery’s small batch brewing capability.

Equipped with a 7-barrel brewhouse, two fermentation tanks, and three brite tanks, Karl's new Anaheim brewery has the potential to produce more than 35 unique releases of fresh, small batch beer brewed on site. The Anaheim satellite brewery will increase the company’s brewing infrastructure to ten brewery locations in southern California, including their main production brewery in Pacific Beach. 

"We’re excited to expand our small batch program," said Karl Strauss Brewmaster Matt Johnson. "We give our brewers the freedom to experiment on our satellite systems and it’s proven very helpful in landing our next big release, like Aurora Hoppyalis or Mosaic Session IPA."

The brewpub layout features a tasting room-like bar area with 24 taps for guests to enjoy an ever changing list of rotating beers. Behind the bar are “beer to go” coolers enabling guests to grab cold, fresh 6-packs and 22oz bombers in addition to growler fills. Next to the brewery is a growler filling station to accommodate high demand for fresh, draft beer on game days. With reclaimed wood and exposed brick, the space has an industrial feel that includes garage doors which open to a large outdoor patio overlooking Angel Stadium. 

"We’re looking forward to introducing our beers to more Anaheim residents," says Matt Rattner, President & Co-Founder, Karl Strauss Brewing Company. This location is the perfect setting for socializing with friends over a freshly brewed, locally made craft beer from an independent brewery,” 

Still under construction, the 11,885 square-foot location will open its doors to the public at 2390 East Orangewood Avenue in Anaheim on August 22. For more information about Karl Strauss and the new Anaheim satellite brewery and brewpub, visit
