Haven and Solace in Beer


You might need a break, or “Solace” in knowing that at Haven Gastropub in Old Towne Orange they’re introducing Firestone Walker’s limited release Solace, an unfiltered wheat ale beer similar to a Saison or Farmhouse Ale. The release happens Wed. from 4 to 6 p.m. at one of my favorite gastropubs—which just so happens to have some of the best comfort foods prepared from scratch (even ketchup) in an ambience of cobblestone covered walls, copper, candle light and dark woodworking.

Open daily 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. 190 South Glassell Street, Old Towne Orange. 714.221.0680
