Breweries & Wineries In Laguna Beach

​What could be better than taking in the fresh, crisp ocean air while sipping on a glass of wine, chilled beer or a neat pour of a passionately crafted spirit?

When it comes to wine, Laguna Beach is currently home to two fantastic wineries: Laguna Canyon Winery and McClain Cellars. They are as unique as they are different.

LAGUNA BEACH WINERIES

McClain Cellars is a modern industrial luxury tasting lounge that is a cross between a New York “Soho” music venue and a “Napa Valley” tasting room. Featuring a 16-foot glass garage door, skylights, and a shaded patio, McClain Cellars brings the beauty of Laguna Beach into the tasting room. 

McClain Cellars grows, harvests and makes all their wine from grapes grown in the Santa Ynez Valley of central California. Each of the wines has clever names like, “Summer Breeze” and “Painted Dreams.” All their vintages are exclusively released at the Laguna Beach tasting room.

They offer Live music every weekend. Open daily 11 am to , and Friday & Saturday 11 am to 9 pm.

Laguna Canyon Winery is an Orange County based winery who ships in fresh grapes directly from the Napa and Sonoma regions and then crush, press, ferment, barrel age, blend and bottle all in their Laguna Beach facility. Laguna Canyon Winery has a tasting room open daily from 11 am to 6 pm except on Mondays and holidays when the winery is closed.

LAGUNA BEACH BREWERIES

In town, two places offer one-of-a-kind craft beer brewed in Laguna Beach; the OC Craft and the Laguna Beach Beer Company. Both provide a casual and welcoming environment perfect for sipping on a pint and enjoying the views that are only found in Laguna Beach. 

OC Craft- A Gastro Brew Pub is a family owned brewery company that is popular with locals and has a vibrant night scene.  Established in 2016, OC Craft was the first Laguna Beach brewery.  The pub offers grass-fed beef burgers, tacos, and much more. Open daily for lunch and dinner and on weekends enjoy a DJ and dancing.    

Laguna Beach Beer Company was co-founded by lifelong Laguna Beach residents, Brent and Mike, who decided to take the leap and launch Laguna Beach Beer Company in 2014.   Their first location and brewery is in Rancho Santa Margarita.  After a successful launch in southern Orange County, they opened their Laguna Beach location in 2018.  They serve tasty bites such as the spicy, maple-glazed, ale-cured bacon. Pair their food with their delicious beers, all named after some aspect of Laguna Beach, i.e., The Greeter’s Pale Ale or the Thousand Steps IPA.

Open daily.  Monday – Thursday from 12 pm to 9 pm.  Saturday 11 am to 10 pm, and Sunday 10 am to 9 pm, with live music throughout the week. 

Get the best of both worlds and enjoy beer and wine! McClain Cellars and Laguna Beach Beer Company are neighbors! So if you can’t decide if you want a pint of craft beer or 90+ point wine, go to the Hive and try them both for the perfect tasting tour.
