Although I knew about this place beforehand, I have to thank Bobby for introducing me to the "real" Stuffed Sandwich and the crew. Awesome selection, got to try a lot of stuff here that Iíd never heard of. My favorite part of the selection is the back vintage stuff; it may not taste the greatest but itís cool nonetheless. I do enjoy the Polish sandwich, and the fact that the taps change every month is great. I also like bringing my own glassware, it gives it a memberís club feel.

Pretty small little diner atmosphere with tons of coolers full of bottles and a few drafts. Order a burger and a good beer, no frills.

Been coming in almost every Wednesday since the summer of 2007.
Some people get turned off by the rules and by Samís attitude and I can understand that but they are really nice people. Sam is all talk, heís actually very friendly. And the rule about having to buy food is well, thatís their rule. Itís a restaurant not a bar. And yes, you should bring your own glass or else buy one from them if you dont want to use a paper cup.
Beer wise itís hard to really stand out these days with so many restuarants and bars competing for the same beer but these guys always have an ecclectic collection and they go way back with a number of California brewers (Sierra Nevada, Moylans, North Coast, Stone, Hair of the Dog, the list goes on) and still have some really old stuff; Marlene sold me a bottles of batch 2 and batch 5 Adam in 2012 and a week later pulled out a 1996 Cantillon Kriek. They have Bigfoot back to the 90s and Anchor Our Special Ale back to the 80s.
The food is pretty good over all. Its mostly sandwiches but you can also get full entres as well as soup, fries, chili, and a few other things.
They put on a new set of kegs every month and occasionally organize tastings. Iíll continue to come back whenever I can.

Amazing selection of bottles and a good rotation on tap as well. Staff is very knowledgeable, sadly Sam was not there during my visit due to his illness. They have a great variety of aged beers as well. Bring your own glass if you go or else you will be stuck drinking from plastic cups.

One word, awesome! Sam and Marlene are LAís craft beer spot and original. Sam has been ill for a while so call before you drive there. Food is great, owners are the friendliest people youíll ever meet. Every beer imaginable, I mean everything plus some vintage stuff.

Itís sort of one of the quintessential beer places in LA County, and we donít really have too many of those.
Everyone knows about Sam and Marlene and their rule about food. The beer selection is hard to top, though some of it is kept in less than stellar conditions.
Donít eat the polish unless you like to crap yourself.

Small spot in san gabriel and they have been around for a while. They usually have around 8 taps going and this year they are doing different styles of beer each month. Sam knows his beer and it shows. Amazing bottle selection with some rare stuff. Food is mediocre but the beer is the reason to go here. Owner jokes alot so be ready. Another great SGV spot.

Great beer selection, lots of vintage stuff thatís difficult to find. Food is OK, but is basically just a requirement to order beer. Owners were very friendly and helpful, would definitely go again.

True it is the home of the Beer Nazi, but is there a more worthy cause?
Funny place, but been there forever.
They serve in paper cups unless you buy a glass! or bring your own! Never heard of byog before.
They have a funny rule about bending over to sip your glass before you take your beer so you donít spill on the floor.
about 10 taps and more bottles than anyone, including the owners could ever count.
Food is pretty mediocre but who goes there for food?
