As others have noted, this place is certainly worth stopping at for a variety of reasons. Around 40 draft selections, focusing on relatively lesser known local breweries. Just a ton of new options, even for a local. Food is pretty good. Donít miss Ohana brewing just around the corner for some bonus ticking.

Granted, I stopped in on a Monday, but the atmosphere was definitely a bit more on the upbeat side. It is more or less a sports bar, and Iím sure it gets crowded during big games, but the neighborhood itís in gives me reason to believe it never gets too crowded, and probably not with the typical annoying crowd that sports bars draw. The fish tacos were delicious, and server, although not necessarily a beer expert, knew enough to make recommendations and seemed personally acquainted with the beers herself.

I was dragged out to Alhambra by a friend who insisted that 38 Degrees was worth the drive. Guess what - it was, it totally was. A superior tap and bottle list with a knowledgeable and friendly staff. Food was really good. The place looks and feels a little corporate for my taste, kind of like a chain and apparently they are looking to open some more locations. The more the better as far as Iím concerned. 38 kicks Yard Houseís ass.

I had a few hours to kill and stopped by here on a Sunday afternoon. Really nice draft list but overly expensive tasters. A bit of a disappointment after having lunch earlier in the day where any 4 5oz tasters was $10 vs. this place where many tasters were $4-6.

Great Bar here! Solid list of craft brews, Adam, Pliney, Speedway, tons of IPAs. Great bottle list of some hard to find beers $$$, great food, happy hour tacos were bomb! Happy hour craft beers were limited

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.
