Big news for beer and wine drinkers in Tustin. Centro, a winery and microbrewery, is now open in Old Town Tustin.
The brewery-restaurant is owned by Pozzuoli Vineyard & Winery, which is located in Paso Robles. (How often do you see a winery that lists its two locations as someplace in wine country, and Tustin?)

I'm a wine fan, but what really got me excited about this place is the micro-brewery. They call the beer side of the operation Archaic Craft Brewery.
I visited on opening day, and they had four beers on tap, but only one was created in house, and that was the Honey Kolsch. If the Honey Kolsch is any indication of the brews we can expect from Archaic, then this place will be great for craft beer drinkers. It was a delicious German style Kolsch, with good mouth feel and no harsh aftertaste.
