After a trip to Germany in the 80’s, head brewer Mark Mericle quickly realized that American beer was sub-par compared to what he was drinking in Europe. His desire for fresh, locally brewed beer back home set him on a path to learn how to brew, which he did in Northern California. In 1989, he opened Orange County’s first brewpub – Heritage Brewing Company. Fast forward to October 2013, Mark teamed up with JJ Snyder and Legacy Brewing was born.

Join us and Brewery Ambassador (TBD) to taste hand-crafted microbrews and appetizers.  

The beer list includes:
Chesty Irish Red
This traditional Irish Red Ale has beautiful reddish auburn coloring and drinks with a perfect balance of caramel and honey notes. You will pick up a light malty sweetness and low levels of a fruity nose that is then balanced with Magnum hops.

Clan Ross Scotch Ale
This Scotch Ale is a strong ale style originating from Edinburgh, Scotland in the 19th century. Sometimes referred to as a wee heavy, this ale is dominated by big caramel malt and nutty/toffee flavors and finishes with notes of spiciness. This Scotch Ale has a wonderful warming effect and is best served in a bowled snifter to appreciate the intense malt flavors and aroma.

Hellfire IPA
The name says it all! While this IPA is an all-out hop attack on your senses, bursting with 8 different hop varieties, the finish is very balanced and non-lingering leaving you with a great drinkable west coast style IPA. It has a big citrusy nose of grapefruit and lemon zest with hints of mango. The ample bitterness is then balanced nicely with a malt background to carry the hops to victory!

That Guava Beer
We hope you are ready for this great summer fruit ale; it’s not cloying but contains just enough soft malt flavors accented by fresh white guavas to leave you feeling like you are on a nice tropical island. Huge bursting aromas and flavors come out in the front palate but this beer finishes smooth, dry and refreshing. Enjoy that guava beer. You should have been around while brewing; the fermentation smelled great!

The Illuminated Blonde
Reminiscent of the German style Kölsch with its pale straw/gold color. This blonde ale is an easy drinking beer because of its light malty palate, medium bitterness, and dry finish. You will pick up nice earthy characteristics from the noble hops. Overall, it’s just a nice balanced beer—light bodied, and refreshing.
