The combination of homemade thin-crust dough, house-made sauce, and eclectic ingredients helped net Oggi’s Pizza & Brewing Co. a gig as the official pizza for the Anaheim Ducks. At the chain's more than 15 locations, much more than pizza is served: the extensive menu brims with crisp salads, pastas, burgers, sandwiches, and wings. Additionally, Oggi’s brews its own beer, serving libations as fresh as laps from the vat and winning the title of Champion Small Brewing Company at the World Beer Cup in 2004. In between swigs of beer, patrons can catch sports games or competitive news broadcasts on one of the eatery's flat-screen TVs.
Nestled inside the Bonaventure Hotel, experienced masseuses maintain 10,000 square feet of pure serenity spread across 11 treatment rooms. Cordoned off into sections for men and women, the facility flaunts amenities such as hydro-jet showers with seven pulsing showerheads and saunas fogged with soothing vapor instead of fog machines stolen from middle-school dances. Bonaventure Club plucks massage techniques from all over the globe, including Thailand where therapists stretch frames with their hands, knees, and feet to amplify the client's flexibility and energy. Pre- or post-treament, clients can unwind in a relaxation lounge stocked with Perrier water, jasmine-rose tea, and snacks, while flipping through magazines or watching a big-screen TV.
Pomona Packing Plant?the historic structure that holds Sanctum Brewing Co.?served as a fruit cannery in the days before the Great Depression. Workers there spent their days processing lemons, peaches, snozberries, and other fruits. Today, you can still find fruit at the plant if you look behind a door marked "21." Thats where Jason and Scott, the founders and head brewers of Sanctum Brewing Co., create beers infused with fruits, such as tangerines and apples.
They go far beyond fruit when choosing unique ingredients for their creative beers, though. For example, turnips lend a smooth, earthy flavor to an imperial red ale, and Dutch cocoa deepens the robust taste of a russian imperial stout. Guests can savor these creations?a portion of the proceeds from which are donated to charity?in a tasting room outfitted with a copper-topped bar. In addition, the brewery sometimes hosts art shows and food trucks, such as Haute Burger.
