Golden Road Brewing Doubles Down on Huge New OC Brewpub

The nearly 60,000 sq. ft. facility will sit adjacent to Angels Stadium.

After some biting (but not altogether untrue) comments about the sometimes smothering bureaucracy that is the City of Los Angeles, Golden Road Brewing co-owner Tony Yanow seems to be in part making true on a promise: he and partner Meg Gill are taking their talents down to Orange County.

Granted, the move has been in the works for a long time, but as Brewhound reports, Anaheim has certainly been more receptive to the idea of having Yanow and Gill around. "They City of Anaheim has been incredibly supportive of the project," Gill tells Brewhound, "[they] understand the value that a new pub and brewery brings to its local community." Shots fired, again.

The 56,000 square foot brewing operation will sit alongside Angel Stadium and dwarf the current production facility in Los Angeles, meaning there’s the real potential for a majority of brewing operations to ship south of the Orange Curtain. For now, though, they'll be brewing on the original 15 barrel system from Golden Road's early days, with plans to dive more heavily into the speciality and one-off craft beer landscape.

The entire project is being overseen by brewing legend Victor Novak, formerly of TAPS Fish House & Brewery, in what is seen as a major craft beer coup. Novak jumped ship (and took his award-winning ways with him) last year to land with Golden Road, and has big motivation to make Golden Road Anaheim every bit as successful as their Los Angeles County brethren. Expect a slow roll out as the $9 million dollar property is brought up to snuff by Yanow, Gill, and Novak.
