Craft beer has boomed substantially in the past few years across the nation, and it has boomed just as much in Orange County. These days, microbreweries pop up everywhere you can think of, but generally in geographical clusters for closer proximity and because some cities do not want breweries at all. In recent years, some areas have seen quite a number of breweries popping up, such as the South Bay, the San Gabriel Valley, and now Huntington Beach. While Huntington Beach has not seen any new breweries pop up since last year, the current breweries stand strong, such as Four Sons Brewing, who just celebrated their second anniversary this past weekend. All weekend, Four Sons celebrated with a handful of rare beers available only for the weekend and only at their tasting room plus the new extension of their tasting room directly next door. In the past couple of years, Four Sons has established quite a name for themselves with their usage of unique ingredients on their brews, such as coconuts or raspberries. They have gained exposure at recent beer festivals, such as OC Brew Ha Ha and OC Beer Fest, providing them with an ample fan base prior to their opening. Their bold approach of in-your-face beers has people stirring about Four Sons’ brews, and the quality of beers does not appear to go down a decline any time soon.
Craft beer fans should not hesitate to check out Four Sons Brewing at 18421 Gothard Street in Huntington Beach. Four Sons joins the ranks of the few Orange County breweries with a tasting room open seven days a week (Bootlegger’s, The Bruery, and Noble Ale come to mind), so you can visit them at your leisure. Remember to like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter to receive updates on new brews and events when they occur!
