Karl Strauss Remodels Costa Mesa Brewpub, Adding More Tanks, Taps, Draft Beer Variety

San Diego, CA — November 2017         Karl Strauss Brewing Company is excited to reopen the doors of its Costa Mesa brewpub and share a new look after a full remodel. The company originally opened this Orange County brewpub back in 2002.

The new layout features a redesigned bar with 24 taps for guests to enjoy an ever-changing list of rotating draft beers. Behind the bar, beer coolers enable guests to grab cold, fresh 6-packs and 22oz bombers in addition to growler fills.

“With the addition of more taps, this remodel allows us to offer a wider variety of rotating small batch beers,” says Matt Rattner, President, Karl Strauss Brewing Company. “Our brewers are constantly producing new experimental beers at our satellite breweries and we’re excited to bring more of those to Orange County craft beer fans.”

The remodeled space includes a more open floor plan with a private dining space, and features a new patio seating area with two large fire pits that are perfect for socializing over a beer.  The brewery is now exposed with floor-to-ceiling windows providing guests a front row seat to watch the brewers in action. Reclaimed wood, steel, brick, and garage-style roll-up doors and windows give the space an industrial feel.

The location re-opens its doors to the public on November 7th, 2017.
