I’ve been to this place a few times now and it is one of the best places for a beer lover in the greater LA area.
This place has a super chill vibe and is very welcoming of just beer lovers in general. When I walk in I find myself talking beer with people from all over and of all ages.
The selection is unrivaled by most places in the LA area. With a hundred some odd taps, there’s something for everyone. They have some more typical offerings to be sure but they’ll also get in some rarer stuff like Knee Deep seasonals or Cigar City collabs. The guys who work here know their stuff and make good recommendations when they aren’t too busy. They also offer some really rare bottles but they are a bit pricey. The food is solid, good sandwiches. The prices are reasonable, not shockingly low or anything but definitely good for what you get.
If you are a beer lover or even just exploring beer and in the LA area, you should definitely check this place out.

This is a really interesting place...the seating area is fairly small with maybe a handful of long communal tables. You order food at the counter and beer at the small bar. Seems like a place for locals as I was the only one there who didn’t seem to know everyone else. The jokes and conversation were something I haven’t necessarily heard much of since I left the fraternity house.
The beer selection is a bit hard to navigate since they only have a limited list of beers printed out, but have a TON of taps with sort of dubious methods of marking what is what. They do offer flights of four, full pours, and will very happily let you try whatever you want for free. The two guys working here were incredibly friendly to me.
Good selection of beers. Lots of new stuff for me to try, which isn’t always the case at bars these days. Would certainly come back if I was in this area more often.

This place is easy to miss, (shit, I just found out about this place that has been under my nose). It is located in a strip mall next to a super market. Outside you have a few craft beer signs and inside a brick wall with over a 100 taps. The selection is awsome in this place, taps includes Sours, BA stouts, ipa’s etc etc. Food is mainly sandwhices which are very good. The place is small with a few tables, you typically order ur food and beer where the deli meats are at and they bring it over to your table. They where able to cramp about 6 tv’s in here which is awsome. A very chill place that has that family owned deli vibe (which it is). They use proper glassware, most of it is from Stone. Value is avg. Pretty much the only place of its kind in this city known as Downey.
