Wow, this place needs some ratings- and some higher ones, at that. Coming from the Midwest, I was shocked at how bad a beer town LA is. I figured a place so big would have a little bit for everybody. Most bars Iíve been to there had no taps, and less than a dozen bottles. Jaw-dropping. Anyway, 3rd Stop (or is it Third Stop?) is at least something of a refuge for persecuted beer drinkers in the second biggest city in America. There are 33 taps and plenty of good stuff I donít see often or canít get at all back in the Midwest- Stone, Lagunitas, Kona, AleSmith, Deschutes, Bear Republic, and Lost Coast were all on tap. I can find a few of those bottles but not drafts. Some other good taps, too. The bottle selection isnít massive, but offers some nice choices. The atmosphere is okay- sleek, pretty small, low-lit, trendy- not exactly a íbeer barí feel to it- then again, does any place in LA have that feel? It had a patio that was closed when I was there, and it wasnít very crowded. Service was also just okay, with one bartender and one waitress. Prices were fair- itís LA.

As far as LA goes this is a real beer haven, but that is a rather back-handed complement... There wasnít a particularlylarge selection of beers on tap and most of what there was was overpriced and fairly common (man I hate LA). Fod was expensive, but ok. Service was acceptable, nothing great. I wouldnít go back, but then again I donít ever plan on going back to LA.

3rd Stop carries a great selection of tap beers, 33 when I was there. They had brews from Stone, Bear Republic, Lost Coast, Kona, and lots of others. This place doesnít know what itís trying to be. Itís sort of a cross between a good íol beer bar and a swanky little LA spot for yuppies. The food tries to be more than it is. I ordered the fish and chips, one of my favorite meals, and I must say I prefer the version served at Jack in the Box - honestly (actually J in the B makes better fish and chips than one would guess). In my opinion, this place would be much cooler if they striped all the bs and just served good beers. Oh, and did I mention they offer no happy hour deals! All that said, if you like good hoppy CA brews on tap, theyíve got a few.
