I came here solo on a Tuesday afternoon looking for Pliny the Elder and found what I was looking for. The ambiance is casual but elegant with modern furnishings and dark woods. The place is large and relatively uncrowded on a week night. One of the three bartenders I talked to was fairly knowledgeable of craft beer, friendly and attentive, but the other two seemed indifferent. They have a wide selection of average craft beers, (mostly west coast) and a few exceptional beers. Contrary to the previous reviewer, samplers are 5 ounces and cost $2.50 to $3. The food selection is varied with lots of sliders and designer tacos. The food is fresh, well made and looks good. The pricing is a little high, but if you get here for happy hour, you can knock a few dollars off the bill. Overall, this is a top-notch place to visit. BTW, the "Beer Available" on RateBeer is seriously out of date.

Close LA equivalent to Churchkey. More generic, semi fancy ambiance. Nothing too unique. But the tap list and food menu is outstanding. Huge number of taps but quality was very high : mostly California local brewery one offs including extreme rarities like Alesmith BA Speedway. 4oz samplers available. Only thing annoying here was the sampler prices which would be frequently $4 for 4oz pours. Seemed excessive but then again the tap selection at the time was nuts left over from their anniversary celebration. Food was excellent: fried green beans were insane, beef short rib superb, everything else was loved. Chocolate mousse and carrot cake both spot on. It is pricey but the quality is high. Spent $180 between four people for the works: beers, apps, entrťes, and desserts. Server was quick and polite, friendly. He forgot the names of a lot of the beers he was serving us but I wasnít too miffed as the tap list was all one offs.

Visited plenty of times since they opened.
This place fills up on Fridays and Saturdays so be prepared for that but if you can get a seat or if you go earlier in the day or on an off day itís comfortable, Lots of booths and lots of seats at the bar.
Lots of beers to choose from including a large number of CA made beers. The last time I went they had a number of Ballast Point beers on and a couple Eagle Rock beers. The time before that they had a half a dozen Coronado beers on.
The food is quite good but fancy (square plates with random stuff sprinkled around like on the cooking shows), sometimes Iíd like to just have something simple and not the super ritzy stuff.
Clay is a really good guy and is doing a good job running the place. I will be back for sure.

Iíve only been at night, so not sure how it is during the day. Other than a larger number of tables, ambiance is similar to most regular nightlife kind of bars (dim lighting, music, loud people, etc.). Solid beer selection with friendly (and often attractive) staff. Good mix of local and distributed/imported beers, pretty extensive bottle list, too.

Stopped by for dinner while in the area for a meeting. Very nice, clean place with friendly waitstaff. Food was very good and price was reasonable. Tap list was fantastic, I had a Kern River IPA, and a couple of the Russian River IPAs, wish I had time to try more (and didnít have to drive).

Went in one afternoon for a cold one. Didnít eat but it looks like they have a pretty good selection. As far as beer they plenty to offer. I went with the Kern River winter ale. I noticed a lot of hard to find beers and wish i could have stayed longer but work was calling.

Nice selection of beer and the composition of flights is appropriately matched, a bit pricey for the location. The place is huge, finding a seat should not be difficult. Staff is friendly and make frequent rounds. Food is somewhat higher than average but is good from what I had. May have to do a follow up.

Found this place on accident while trying to go to the stuffed sandwich which happened to be closed that day. A great discovery I must say! the beer selection was great and I had a great burger. Good day time happy hour as well.

More than slightly embarrassed that it took me this long to get out there. Clay has always been a great guy to chat with, and this place is great. Great stop in the area, and truly one of the best beer bars in LA. Friendly and very knowledgeable service. Street parking was easy for me (but it was for a late weekday lunch). Very nice interior feel, long bar, plenty of tables, lots of wood. Full bar selection with some good looking cocktails. Bottles were decent, and the tap selection was great (both local and less local breweries). PtE, Melange No. 3, Racer X, Craftsman Cabernale, you get the picture. Food was also pretty fantastic. The "Melange oí Pork" sandwich was pretty freaking awesome. I am sorry it took so long for me to get over here, I am sure I will be back any time I am in the area.
