Amazing tap and whiskey selection. Good service. Dive bar interior. They have two casks as well which is cool. Any beer enthusiast needs to check this place out.

They always keep the taps interesting and local whenever possible. Maintaining 4 casks is just outstanding. For beer consumption, the place strikes me as small, but I like that when at the bar I donít have to deal with the pool players, especially when they are all drinking Corona and Bud and barking at the poor bar maid. Very English feel - havenít felt like this since the Horse Brass Pub.

When you walk in to the right is a bar section that is a tight space. To the left is a big open room with a pool table and a big screen for watching games. Itís got that belgium esque dark and gritty feel. It also has a ridiculous scotch list. It had a nice selection on tap and a couple cask ales. Really enjoyed it.

Went here about a week ago with DuffmanSW and laroja. We were the only ones there on a Friday late mid afternoon. The beer selection was great. They had two Stone casks that day. One was Ruination with Amarillo and Simcoe hops. The other was Levitation with centennial hops. I also had the Alaskan Brewing Baltic porter on tap. And we all went in on a bottle of Firestone 12 for only $30. Not bad for a bar price. The place was a lot of fun. They had an internet jukebox, pool tables, and shuffleboard. Kept us entertained for hours.

Great place in Santa Monica. Passionate and very knowledgable owner. Got a very English pub feel to it. Lots of american beers on tap but also has quite a few Belgians on tap also which is quite surprising. And an absolutely amazing whiskey selection too. Must visit if in Santa monica

A locals bar with pool tables. All about Whiskey and cask ales. 3 hand pumps. Nice people working there. Parking is behind or on one of the side streets. Didnt have any food. Obviously this place has two other competitors in Santa Monica...FO and Library Ale House. This has a much better bottle selection than both of those. Jolly Pumpkin, Lambics, Bruery, Lost Abbey, and Firestone 12 to name a few. Tap selection is better than Library Ale House but slightly weeker than FO. Good, but dingy place.

Outstanding collection of beer and Scotch. Someday when I have a ride home Iíll look into some of the whiskeys. Great place to meet unpretentious beer lovers. Kind of small, and itís probably always tough to get a spot at the bar. Pick the right time, though, and I bet it can be a real nice experience.

This is an old-school hole-in-the-wall joint that just happens to have a deep, knowledgeable, passion for craft and micro brews. It is not high-end, not high-brow, and caters to a local community college scene. But itís authentic through and through. If you want a real BAR with real BAR accommodations (think pool, foosball, shuffleboard and jukebox) at the same time as trying out an ongoing rotation of great beers from around the country --- this is your place!

Dive bar where the ratio of women to men is about 1 to 50. Nevertheless we are here for the beer. Tap selection was decent. Iíve seen better in the area. Whiskey/Scotch selection seems to be their specialty. No food, but food trucks routinely park outside and you are allowed to bring your food inside.
