The epitome of a dive bar. Youíd be scared to go inside based on the exterior. Bad ass taps. Good bottles. Free pool! Awesome.

t0rin0 gave this place a couple thumbs up, so I decided to stop in on my way from Golden Road as itís just down...well, the road.
Definite dive bar feel inside and out, but oh, theyíve got like 50 great taps on. Some pool tables, a bit dark and old school feeling, a jukebox to put on some tunes. Nice.
The bartender was happy to answer questions and knew what he was talking about. They have a lot of local, LA-county breweries on tap like Golden Road, Three Weavers, Eagle Rock, Angel City, MacCleod, etc. as well as plenty of popular stuff on tap and in bottles. They even had some random Moonlight beer...wat?
They do a lot of different sizes of beer pours from tasters to full pints and each size is listed on the menu with the corresponding cost. Thank you! Happy hour is a great deal, too.
This is a place I would hang out at a lot if it was near me at all. Really awesome place.

A craft beer bar masquerading as a dive bar. The beer list is aces, leans on the locals and features the right range of styles. The barkeeps know the list inside-out and upside-down. The peanuts are free. This is the best beer bar between San Diego and northern California. LA prices, but itís LA.

found this awesome place by mistake. I was instantly in heaven. they had a wide selection of tabs and bottles. The bartender was very knowledgeable on the craft beer. they give tasters out which is always a plus. free pool and peanuts.plus you can just toss the shells on the floor.extra points in my book. went during the early evening. the atmosphere was very chili during this time. jukeboxes played some good tone. nice place to lounge around with friends and talk about craft beer. planing another train ride out to this bar.

Fantastic dive bar with easy street parking and a huge selection of craft. For the most part they have a really great selection, but I have had a few warm/flat beers there - which explains the low service score. Big selection, free pool tables, free peanuts and a very unpretentious vibe keep me coming back. The very limited food offerings make my stays shorter than Iíd like. Get some food trucks and Iíll stay all night.

Now this is a diamond in the rough. I was not expecting very much at all when I pulled up. This is in an industrial area and from the outside you would have no idea what to expect inside (minus the oak barrel with a Firestone flyer stapled to it). There are no windows, no real advertising (just a small GT sign), and a steel door. Inside the place looks like you might expect: dark, stuff on the walls, a pool table, some dedicated local drinkers, etc, but they have a ridiculous tap lineup. I didnít count the taps to make sure there were really 52 but all the way down the counter there were tap towers with four taps on them and on the one end on the wall were another dozen taps. They have booklets sitting on the counter with a complete tap list that seems to be fairly up to date. From the sounds of it they rotate taps quite often too.
This isnít your 50 taps and all crap sort of place. I saw beers available from Almanac, Angel City, Bruery, Bootleggers, Drakes, Deschutes, Golden Road, Green Flash, Lost Abbey, and plenty more. They had a few crappy ones mixed in but mostly good stuff. I went with a small glass of Denoginzer which was only $3 since it was a half pour and during happy hour (until 5 on Sundays apparently). I also got a free taste of the LA Aleworks Roggenbier. I was tempted to try the Figueroa Mountain third anniversary barrel aged imperial stout but Iíll save it for another day. The server was very friendly and fairly knowledgeable. Even the bar fly sitting next to me knew something about the beer, though not much more than which ones get you drunk the quickest. There was a big group playing pool and drinking the crap out of the LA Ale Works beers. Very friendly crowd over all. I could see making this a regular stop when I pass through the area.
