I was fortunate enough to visit Valiant Brewing for a soft opening on Feb. 2nd this last weekend. The brewery is located in a hidden business park off Batavia in Orange. You can miss it if you aren’t careful! You turn down a side street and on your right is a chain link fence and to your left is a business park inlet and at the end of that street lies a hidden gem brewery. NewLR-6 NewLR-7 NewLR-8 NewLR-9

Once inside, it’s surprising how large the space is. Most new breweries are small, and most seem to grow out of their space and brewing equipment way too fast. It seems that Valiant caught on to this fact and opted for more brewing equipment and a larger tasting room full of space for people to drink their beer in peace! The equipment was shiny and bright and full of promise. The beer was very good, especially the barleywine. The people working the tap room were warm lovely people who were more than happy to field any questions you might have with a smile.

I was happy to see some beer friends there: Greg with OC Beer Blog, Ron with OC Beer Society, Jeff (not sure who he’s with?), and Derek with Newport Beach Brewing Co.


They have their grand opening this Saturday, Feb. 9th between 12pm and 9pm. Here is the address: 2294 N. Batavia, Unit C, Orange Ca 92865
