The Bruery received a green light Tuesday from the Placentia Planning Commission to keep its tasting room open until midnight, however, the craft brewer says it has no plans to change its operating hours anytime soon.
Bruery Spokesman Joel Kennedy said Friday this change would provide the company with flexibility to update its hours if and when it chooses to do so down the road. Under the new permit, the Bruery’s tasting room in Placentia could remain open from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m. Currently, the tasting room is forced to close by 10 p.m.
“The proposed updates put before the committee are forward-looking to give us both flexibility and capabilities to evolve our business and operations to deliver the type of experience our fans, and especially Society members, deserve,” Kennedy said.
The Bruery, owned and operated by the Rue family, can now fully occupy the 30,560-square foot industrial building on Dunn Way near the 57 Freeway and Orangethorpe Avenue.
Patrick Rue’s Bruery and Bruery Terruex brands have gained international recognition for producing some of the best craft beers in the country. They’re particularly well-known for innovative sour and fruity beers, which are showcased at the Terruex tasting room in Anaheim.
With the recent opening of its store at Union Market in Washington D.C., the Bruery now has a footprint on both coasts.
