On Location: Brian’s Pub and Billiards

Legacy Drinking

High Octane Growler went on location to Brian’s Pub and Billiards in Fullerton to talk about beer, barbecue, their legendary ribs, and drinking in Orange County.

A mainstay favorite among Cal. State Fullerton students (and probably faculty too), this bar and billiards pub has been around for over three decades, and is a classic neighborhood locale where familiar faces are the norm.

Called an “oasis of the old school” by the ultra-hip O.C. Weekly, Brian Fairely talks with High Octane Growler’s crack videocast team about beer, bars, and barbecue over a cold Bootlegger’s Palomino. And don’t forget the billiards.
