This place is enormous. Thereís a large lot outside with food truck options. Two big buildings connect to create the tasting rooms. The first building is just massive with hundreds of seats. There were some interesting local vendors to one side of the room, keeping with the Arts District theme. The beers were good, on the verge of being really great. The pilsner is pretty cleanly fermented, but on the sweet side of the style. The berliner weisse was a little strange, but better than the gose we had earlier at a different place. The second tasting area was showing Germlins on a projection TV. Pretty cool idea. I definitely recommend going here just to see the space. Itís crazy. Beers arenít too shabby either.

Comments: One of the coolest tasting rooms Iíve ever experienced- two stories of open space inside a retrofitted factory now brewery. Art deco and old timey decor with gold and iron, natural light. Tons of people here, capactity is probably 300 persons. Pets allowed. Food truck outside. Beer was better than expected with their core brands plus special offerings. Enough tables and lounge space to play board games or have a bachelor party. Really fun place, a nice surprise. Thanks DTF!

Not a bad place with 7 diverse taps. Atmosphere is pretty cool here, however beers leave a feeling as if not completely developed.

Amazing space in DTLA. Great atmosphere and a nice addition to the arts district. Odd hours and soso beers make it a place i wonít rush back to. Theyíve got money behind them so Iím hoping theyíll get it all together soon.

31 aug 2013. Cool location (art district) and cool building. Lots of room, tables, games. Bar is between the seating area and the brewing kit. Five food trucks in the parking area outside.

Big industrial warehouse space near/in Little Tokyo. Cool decor and very open feel to the place. They had 12 beers on tap during my visit. Service was quite friendly and they were very helpful. Lots of standing tables as well as picnic benches all around. Would definitely come back here.

On weekends there are food trucks and paintings on the wall. This is when you go. Space is huge, white and would probably be off-putting if not festooned with local paintings. Beer is... well... itís Angel City, remember?

The brewery is planning on having there grand opening sometime in late February. I stopped by earlier today as the owner and brewmaster Michael agreed to sell me some of his Imperial Stout (which has sold out at local stores). The building itself is a beautiful (what appears to be circa 1920s), architecture firm (the John A Roebling Building). The space is absolutely massive, and looks very classical. There seems to be plenty of parking and room for them to go. They were getting ready to install the tanks today. Michael still has beer that he can sell from the old brewery, and charges extremely fair prices (he threw in extras as well). He also seemed more than willing to talk about brewing and homebrewing (I gave him a bottle). The area is the arts district of down town LA near little Tokyo and only blocks away from Wurstkuche. I look forward to their opening, and feel confident that they will do well. Iíll update this place rating when they settle in a bit more.
