Cant believe I missed this one. They were very gracious hosts of ours for RBSG LA. Since then theyíve switched brewers (Viktor Novak from Taps is now there) and the beer has changed a bit. Itís a cool venue for a number of reasons. First off itís large and holds a lot of people, as it needs to because its very busy. Second, they have no less than a dozen taps going so you can try all kinds of stuff including the occasional experiments and barrel aged variants. Also, the drive in is comical. On this street are a brewery, a strip club, and a plumbing supply store. Quality.

The beers all around are decent to good. Minus the one tequila barrel beer I havenít had any really bad ones. Certainly the IPAs are improving and Iím past due for a return visit to see what theyíve been up to (beyond what get distributed around town).

A cool little location in LA next to some train tracks. I wouldnít have really expected a brewery to be there if I didnít purposely go there. Good selection of house and guest taps. Food looked really good, but didnít eat anything. The restaurant/bar itself is a really cool renovated warehouse space. Staff was quite friendly and prices were decent. Unfortunately, I wasnít a fan of most of their beers.

Very cool place next to the train tracks, a strip club, and a plumbing supply warehouse. Ambiance is killer, all open air, almost pool deck like feel. Large tap list in chalk on the board along with the menu. Very crowded and mega popular. We did a flight of house beers- all were pretty disappointing quality wise. Food looked very good, so we ordered crab cakes. They came out as two, extremely small crab cakes. I mean....almost a joke. And they were very expensive. I was a little bit miffed. The tequila barrel aged hefeweizen was interesting....their house IPA was much better- their strongest offering. The new DIPA debuting that day was very poor. Still, just the vibe and ambiance of this place is worth visiting. Service was interesting, we all stood in line and got our beer and our food order and given a ticket to place on the table. Beer came quickly and so did the food. There isnít really table service in that sense.

Loved the look and feel of this place. Like an old airport hanger that is half open. Great for a sunny day. Food looked awesome and healthy to boot, which is rather rare around here. Beers need attention. Should have hit the guest taps.

Huge place with lots of indoor and outdoor seating. Kind of a pain to wait in line for beer and/or food. Beers were average at best. But for a family friendly place, this is cool.

Wow is this place hopping! Parking is a bit of a bitch, but once you accomplish that feat its all good. Tons of seating indoors and out, fairly large bar. Not really what I would call upscale. Lots of corrugated sheet metal going on, but it works for what it is. Basic bar food menu with decent prices. My food was pretty mediocre, but certainly edible. They have a dozenish beers on tap, including a bunch of taproom specials at any time. They will only provide two "standard" four glass flight - the IPA flight and the non-IPA flight. I got the non-IPA flight (which had Point the Way IPA on it :)). Service was actually quite good, no worries there at least for us. Beers, unfortunately, were fair to middlin, but the places gets a thumbs up for vibe and attitude.

Visited on their grand opening. This place is going to be amazing for the Los Angeles beer scene! Massive space (over 2 acres) separated in to three buildings (the brewery, the barrel room and the future brew pub). Currently they are brewing on their 15bbl system which will become their pilot system when they install the 60bbl brewhouse. Look for cans soon. The brewpub is a bit further off in the future. Parking is easy, although the area isnít amazing (typical industrial area). Have high hopes.

We visited this place on 20.12.2013. Very large place (brewery and pub attached), amazing how they could grow this place to this size within only 2 years. Quite a large beer selection, ranging from KŲlsch to Porter and Berliner Weisse to IPA. We tasted a Surfliner (hoppy Pale Ale) and a Brown Ale. Both were just average, nice atmosphere, typical garage style US brew pub.

Visited during RBSG. Very kind staff, but way too commercial for my taste. Respectable selection on tap, and enjoyed one of their ales, but underwhelmed by their food and ambiance.
