Stereo Brewing Company in Placentia was born after a long night of listening to great vinyl and drinking great beer. Rick Smets, now owner and brewer wanted a way to mix his love for music with his lifelong passion for brewing.

When describing Stereo, Rick tends to mention bands that would never play a stage together – Grateful Dead meets Dead Kennedys meets Duke Ellington. His eclectic music tastes carry over into Stereo’s beer styles. Some high notes include Hazy Jane II, a refreshing ginger beer, Blonde on Blonde Kölsch (named after the Bob Dylan album) and Perfect Day IPA – a citrusy piney nod to Lou Reed. It addition to the brewing facility, Stereo has a 1,000 square feet on-site tap room open Wednesday through Sunday. The tap room serves tasting flights, pints and fresh beer to-go in Crowlers. Come in to listen to music from our restored reel-to-reel or help us pick out the next record to spin.
