Haven Gastropub +Brewery opens second location in Pasadena

Debuting in Orange, CA in 2009, Haven Gastropub was well received by OC Weekly and the Orange County Register. Drinks from pre-Prohibition cocktails and a curated global wine and beer list of over 100+ bottles, 52 taps, four of the brewery’s own special beers, four cask ales, and eight wine varietals served by the keg complimented chef Greg Daniels’ gourmet comfort foods. Now, they bring the concept to Pasadena with the official opening on December 15. 42 De Lacey Ave., Pasadena, CA 91105.
