If you’re heading to Anaheim to watch the Angels close out their season, get there a few hours early to try these breweries and restaurants. They’re all walking distance to the stadium.
Noble Ale Works
This craft brewery was once a secret but is now so popular that it’s building a new tasting room. For now, get pints ($5) and flights of five 4-ounce pours ($10) from its 20 rotating taps. Bonus: Park free on game nights.
1621 S. Sinclair St., 714-634-2739, noblealeworks.com
Just off the 57 Freeway, in an otherwise forgettable strip mall, this cozy gastropub serves more than 30 wines by the glass and a dozen craft beers, along with tasty burgers ($13 to $15), street tacos ($8), and short rib sliders ($12).

Golden Road Brewing
This L.A.-based firm plans to build a restaurant here, but for now you can visit the small taproom and get a pint or a flight of four 5-ounce pours. Enjoy them on the sunny patio filled with long wooden tables.
2210 E. Orangewood Ave., 714-912-4015, goldenroad.la
At this bar and bistro tucked into the Stadium Lofts, you’ll find the flavors you expect from Zov’s. There’s Moroccan-spiced salmon salad ($19), sumac-roasted seabass ($24), and thin-crust “pitza pies.”
