Stopped in on a Monday evening, so it was pretty dead. Place has the feel of an old diner mixed with a low end, off-the-strip Las Vegas casino and dive bar. From previous reports of friends who have gone here, this is a place to watch Monday Night Football or a fight and slam innumerable 32 oz pours of whatever bozo juice theyíve got on special.

They do have a handful of "house beers", which are contract brewed for them (and are not terribly good). The beer selection in general is not half bad, though. Not great, but at least respectable in the same way a place like the Yard House has a good list. The service was friendly and quick. They donít do flights so I had to just make a deal with the bartender.

I donít see myself coming back.

Visited twice. Once I didnt even get in the front door because the place was packed to the gills with bros there to watch the UFC fight. Then a few months later I stopped in for lunch while on a work trip. It was quiet and early enough that the local bros hadnt had a chance to get hammered while watching the games yet. I tried a flight of the house beers (actually made at Angel City, not really brewed in house) and had a sandwich. Neither was very good. I tried a pils, a hefe, and a couple of other nondescript ales of varying color and sweetness. I dont spend much time in Downey so I dont know if Iíll ever stop back in again. For a noisy bro bar its fine, for a "brewery" (that should really be changed) not so much. The upside is that they do have an occasional good beer among the rows of Dos Equis and Bud taps.

Iíve gone there a couple times for lunch and enjoyed a couple of beers. They have a pretty good selection of import and domestics. Food is average.

Visited with friends on a Saturday night. We were seated at a table but they have booths for large groups and of coarse you could sit at the bar. Many flat screen showing different sporting events. Service was very good. Jessica was our server and she was always there to ask if we needed more beer. She also seemed to know about the beer she was serving. The food was good and will try more of it next time Iím there. The beer was very well priced in my opinion and was served in itís proper glassware. The house brews are $5 a pint. I had their IPA, which was good. My friends and I went there to catch up, not looking for rare stuff, just a place to talk and have good beer and we were not disappointed.

toxichop  (23) South Gate, California | April 28, 2011| Updated January 31, 2012
The first time I came here was around the spring of 2010 and I have come again recently. Looks like they have made some sweet improvements like proper glassware, more micros on tap and they have some hot ladies working here. Some stuff not so good though, I got some lagunitas sucks that was served way to cold, the crowd is still a very Macro crowd, service is mehh and they have little knowledge on the beers and the food blows. Overall its nice that there trying but when ur at Downey how far can you go with craft beer.

Great beer selection,.. although the food was decent, I think they get it from Walmart. Bartender was great. Prices were average. Somewhat rough crowd.

A good little spot in Downtown Downey, an area replete of decent spots for craft beer. The owners, Sergio, Walter, and Louis do an admirable job introducing better beer to Downey. Yes, youíll find BMC on tap. But itíll be alongside local specialties like Bootleggerís, Angel City, Green Flash and Stone. Iíve heard that they are even looking into expanding their beer selection further!
