About Anderson Valley Brewing Company:

Founded in 1987, the Anderson Valley Brewing Company brewed out of a 10-barrel brewhouse, located in the lower level of its brewpub, The Buckhorn Saloon. Gleaming stainless steel vats brewed and fermented barley and other specialty grains to create outstanding ales, porters, stouts, and wheat beers. These brews began as a dream of Kenneth Allen to create the smoothest tasting ales available anywhere.

When the demand for their award winning ales exceeded the capacity of the 10-barrel brewery below the pub, theybuilt their present 30-barrel facility at the corner of Highways 128 and 253, a mile from the center of Boonville. That was in 1996, and this brewery saw themthrough a dramatic period of growth, which included the introduction of a 12 ounce bottling line and a production level of 15,000 barrels in 1998, twice the amount brewed in 1997.

Yet, the brewery’s growth was outpacing its larger space and expanded capacity. In 1998, construction began on a state-of-the-art, three-story Bavarian-style brewhouse. The centerpieces of the brewhouse are gleaming 100- and 85- barrel copper brew kettles rescued by Ken Allen fromdefunct German breweries during a trip to Europe in 1995. The new brewhouse went online in August of 2000.

By 2010 Ken Allen decided to retire and began to search for a successor to continue the Anderson Valley commitment to quality. In April of 2010 the brewery sold to industry veteran Trey White. In September of that yearFal Allen (former general manager 2000 – 2004, no relation to Ken) returned to the brewery as brewmaster. White has focused on innovation and quality, introducing the BahlHornin’ Series, expanding the barrel aged program, and increasing brewing capacity.

Pliny the Younger Release at Haven Gastropub in Orange ~ Feb 24th

Posted Saturday, February 22, 2014 by Mona Shah
Beer lovers can rejoice – every year, Russian River Brewing Co. releases their Pliny the Younger, and this pub-draft only, VERY limited distribution beer is available in February at select locations, including Haven Gastropub in Old Towne Orange!  Yes, and when we have this 10.5% ABV Pliny the Younger, we'll also have Pliny the Elder on tap!

Here's how it will go down:
Monday, February 24 @ 11 a.m. >> Haven Gastropub in Old Towne Orange
190 South Glassell St., Old Towne Orange, CA 92866. 714-221-0680

Pliny the Younger will be poured on a first come, first served basis.  If there is a line, we will give tickets to the line just before 11 a.m. for the purchase of an 8oz glass of Pliny the Younger.  The cost of Pliny the Younger will be $8.

ABOUT: Pliny the Younger
Triple India Pale Ale

Pliny the Younger, the man, was Pliny the Elder’s nephew and adopted son. They lived nearly 2,000 years ago! Pliny the Elder is our Double IPA, so we felt it was fitting to name our Triple IPA after his son. It is almost a true Triple IPA with triple the amount of hops as a regular I.P.A. That said, it is extremely difficult, time and space consuming, and very expensive to make. And that is why we don’t make it more often! This beer is very full-bodied with tons of hop character in the nose and throughout. It is also deceptively well-balanced and smooth.

March of Dimes: March for Babies - April 27, 2014

Posted Thursday, January 16, 2014 by Mona Shah
For the third consecutive year, haven collective (Haven Gastropub in Old Towne Orange, Haven Gastropub +Brewery in Old Pasadena, taco asylum at the Camp in Costa Mesa, and Provisions Market in Old Towne Orange) will lead a team during Orange County's March of Dimes "March for Babies" on Sunday, April 27th. The organization's mission to a nation of stronger, healthier babies is one that has become dear to us over the past year and a half!

Our Executive Chef Greg Daniels and his wife, Abby, gave birth to Madeleine Daniels in December 2011. Madeleine was born with several complications and spent more than a month in the NICU. While there, March of Dimes provided support and education to them. They offer a range of services, from small things, like phone chargers and snacks, to the more significant, such as infant CPR training for babies like Madeleine, who have had a tracheostomy.

March of Dimes asks nothing of parents for the services they provide.

Today, we are asking you to please join our walk as a member of Team haven collective - simply sign up on our page link below!  If you are unable to join us on Sunday, April 27th, please support us with a secure donation by clicking the 'donate now' button on our page:


Your time and/or gift will support March of Dimes research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And it will be used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.

The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

why march for babies?
When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies. We’ve been walking since 1970 and have raised an incredible $2 billion to benefit all babies.

look who’s walking!
This year, more than 7 million people will join their family, friends and colleagues in 900 communities across the nation. Our volunteers and staff will encourage and support you in your efforts to raise awareness and funds. No matter if this is your first year or your 25th, you can expect the event to be fun, compelling and rewarding.

Thank you in advance for your time.

Beer Camp #109 : Fear the WHIPL by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

Posted Saturday, January 11, 2014 by Mona Shah

Now on tap at Haven Gastropub in Orange:
Beer Camp #109 : Fear the WHIPL by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

This beer was the result of Beer Camp #109 that our Managing Partner & Beverage Director, Wil Dee, was invited to be a part of at Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. Beer Camp is an invitation-only opportunity during which a small group from the industry are given a hands-on look inside Sierra Nevada's pioneering craft brewery, where they become part of the brewing process.

Not only was Wil part of the decision-making team that selected the style of beer, hops, ingredients, but he was able to see, feel, sample and experience everything that Sierra Nevada has to offer as they rolled out the red carpet for his group.

Beer Camp #109 : Fear the WHIPL

Style: This acronym WHIPL alludes to the beer style: Wet Hopped India Pale Lager.  

Aroma: WHIPL's aroma recalls fresh-baked bread, and the potent oils of wet hops impart unique flavors that converge with roastiness for a complex brew with a a clean finish.

Bittering Hops: Polaris, Mandarina

Finishing Hops: Wet Cascade

Malts: Two-ro Pale, Wheat, Chocolate

Yeast: Lager Yeast

Come try this beer - in addition to having it at Haven Gastropub in Orange, we'll also be featuring it at Haven Gastropub +Brewery in Pasadena, Provisions Market in Orange and taco asylum in Costa Mesa.

The next time you see Wil, ask him about his experience at Sierra Nevada. He'll be able to give you his first-hand account of their brewhouse, barley field, cellars and hop rooms!
