Midnight Shinigami


Formed in 2010 to compete in a Battle of the Bands competition, this group of musicians combined their passion for music and anime, giving creative birth to “Midnight Shinigami”. They have been traveling to local conventions to share their favorite anime songs to the masses and have released their first album, “Kioku//Memories” in December 2017. Midnight Shinigami’s members are just as diverse as their musical influences and playing styles. From soft ballads to hard-driving metal, they’re sure to have something in their repertoire that’ll make anyone drop dead in pure aural bliss.

Anaheim Brewery


We like to say, half-jokingly, that our passion for beer is in our blood . . . Greg’s grandfather worked for the Pabst brewery in Milwaukee for 40 years.  Barbara’s great grandfather was an early homebrewer – he made beer in his cellar during Prohibition.

But we really developed our love for fresh, local beer during the seven years we lived in Bavaria, Germany. There, almost every small town had its own brewery that served the local gasthauses and pubs.

LTCs Barbara and Greg Gerovac, circa 2001

We were stationed in Germany in the mid-1980’s and early 1990’s, when we were serving in the U.S. Army.  Both of us served for twenty years and retired as Lieutenant Colonels. That means that our brewery is 100% veteran owned.

Once we hung up our Army uniforms in the early 2000’s, we found entry-level jobs at breweries in Northern Virginia.  After polishing our professional brewing skills at packaging breweries and brewpubs, we relocated back to Barbara’s native California. For a few years, we worked at several local brewpubs in Orange and LA counties.

In 2010, we re-established the famous Anaheim Beer that disappeared when National Prohibition closed the taps in 1920.  In May of 2011, we brewed our first batch of Anaheim 1888, based on the style of beer made at the original Anaheim Brewery.  Seven years later, we brew often so our neighborhood always has plenty of fresh beer.

With Anaheim Brewery located in the Packing District, there’s plenty of to-go food choices.  Grab something to eat, let your kids run around in Farmer’s Park while you kick back with a pint in our Beer Garden.

We look forward to sharing a glass & some laughter with you.
