Who We Are

The Orange County Brewers Guild is an organization dedicated to educating the public of the great American tradition of craft beer and its rich brewing culture in Orange County.

Our Mission

With over 40 established craft breweries within the county’s borders, the OC Brewers Guild strives to bring to the public visibility and knowledge of the rich and constantly growing brewing culture present in Orange County. Established in early 2015, the guild aims to:

  • Educate the public on the benefits of fresh, local beer
  • Promote the interests of breweries located within Orange County
  • Participate in and create local community events to raise funds for charities and increase public awareness of locally available craft beer

As the organization continues to develop and expand, it hopes to cultivate a passion for craft beer in the general community and inspire the public to seek out their local artisan breweries.
