Stopped in during their Belgian Brew Fest. Lots of new things and the server did not know all the different Belgian beers in detail, but that was ok. Food was really nice - a Belgian beef stew served with a crusty French roll. Sat outside in early February, can’t beat that!!

This is a GREAT bar to check out. I lived only 3 blocks away from here and always enjoyed the different choices of beer on tap..Nice little hidden gem if you are just driving by...

Small but cozy back bar and outdoor patio decorated with British memorabilia. Very knowledgeable bartender, but the wait staff is less helpful. Around 40 beers on tap and many bottles, including local Craftsman brews. Food is typical pub fare. Reasonably priced.

Located in downtown Pasadena. Its real easy to miss. Theres a nice outdoor patio area. The place kind of winds through the building and theres a ground level, upstairs, and some kind of storage area downstairs. Granted I’ve only been there during festivals (barleywine fest, anniversary, octoberfest, and belgian fest) and thats always on a weekend. Its crowded and can get noisy but its a nice atmosphere because the patrons are more respectful than your average bar flys.

The food is quite good but expensive. So far I’ve had a burger, fries, and a leek soup. All good. You pretty much have to go to the bar to oder food but thats alright. Servers are scarce.

The beer list is always impressive and with 50+ taps theres something for everyone. Theres also a fridge full of bottles and I think they have more hiding somewhere. Actually, if you look down the stair case by the projector you can see huge stacks of Bigfoot, Celebration, and Anchor xmas. Their real claim to fame is the belgian selection including a bunch of 1.5L and 3L bottles and occasional 6L.

Downtown old Pasadena staple that is a cramped English deli (?) when you walk inside. Larger outside patio. Pretty hefty draft list with a focus on Belgian beer, which was odd given the English food. But this bar is really the place to find the elusive Craftsman beers from Pasadena, which tend to be very good. The bar recently had Van Steenberge contract brew for them a custom house beer now added into ratebeer. They offer tasting flights, which was nice. Service was quick and attentive. My only qualm was that when our flight was given to us, the server did not tell us which beer was which and did not know so had to go back and check. Just a tad annoying. Fun, simple, relaxing place. Didn’t try the food. They apparently also do pitchers here if you there for happy hour.

Very Interesting decor, had some Belgian beers I will never be able to experience in too many other places outside Belgium. Thanks for the recommendations!

Visited Sunday lunch. Very busy on the patio with football and soccer. 63 beers on tap, available in 6 oz tasters. Cozy dark pub inside - also packed. Belgian, German and CA beers dominate the list.
