LB Brewery becomes Oc Craft, Laguna’s first gastro brewpub

Tomorrow, April 3, Laguna Beach Brewery has a big reveal with a new concept and new name – Oc Craft Gastro Brew Pub, with a motto of “Home of Real Laguna Beer.” And true to the slogan, it’s made in Laguna. 

The menu will be updated as well. Giovanni Labile, co-manager of Oc Craft, and formerly of Ocean Avenue Brewery, says, “We’ve been listening to our customers who ask where they can find a good burger at a reasonable price, so we’re now going to focus on burgers. We’ll have a grass-fed beef option, a gluten-free bun option, a vegan burger with vegan cheese, turkey burgers, lamb burgers, and a chicken option.”

Giovanni says, “We’re elevating our level more in line with the Laguna level.” He said that when they opened the brewery and offered Mexican food, it was different, but now with others doing the same in town, it’s no longer needed. 

Oc Craft will be open from Monday - Sunday from 11:30 a.m. until 9 p.m. on weekdays and until 11 p.m. on weekends. The bar will have entertainment and stay open until 1 a.m.

The restaurant is also reaching out to locals and the LGBTQ community with the idea that it’s a good spot to have events. 

 Oc Craft is located at 237 Ocean Ave. For more information, call (949) 497-3381.
