Downtown old Pasadena staple that is a cramped English deli (?) when you walk inside. Larger outside patio. Pretty hefty draft list with a focus on Belgian beer, which was odd given the English food. But this bar is really the place to find the elusive Craftsman beers from Pasadena, which tend to be very good. The bar recently had Van Steenberge contract brew for them a custom house beer now added into ratebeer. They offer tasting flights, which was nice. Service was quick and attentive. My only qualm was that when our flight was given to us, the server did not tell us which beer was which and did not know so had to go back and check. Just a tad annoying. Fun, simple, relaxing place. Didn’t try the food. They apparently also do pitchers here if you there for happy hour.

Very Interesting decor, had some Belgian beers I will never be able to experience in too many other places outside Belgium. Thanks for the recommendations!

Visited Sunday lunch. Very busy on the patio with football and soccer. 63 beers on tap, available in 6 oz tasters. Cozy dark pub inside - also packed. Belgian, German and CA beers dominate the list.

Went for lunch. Good value, great beer list, cozy, but I’d imagine it’s uncomfortably crowded at night. Food was decent and well-priced.

Nice place with a nice patio. When I was there they were having their annual Belgian Fest and had a lot of interesting beers on tap. Good service, great beer, whats not to love?

The bar is dimly lit with lots of signage all over the place, perhaps too decorated. It definitely has "character". The beer list is fairly eclectic and ranges from the typical English/Irish imports that are on every "pub" tap-list to some local beers such as Craftsman, to more obscure Belgian beers. The service varies in helpfulness. One of the old school stops in Southern California.

The place is cozy. Its a little run down, but I think that gives it some charm. Honestly when I’m out to find beer I could not care less what the place looks like. And this place really is not a dive. Dives are much worse. The food is cheap and was not too bad. I got a corned beef and pastrami sandwich with a big side of fries for less than 9 bucks. Beer prices are standard for Los Angeles ranging from $5 to $9 bucks for the beers on tap. The place has several different rooms and in an upstairs room it sounded like people were having a good time watching a soccer match. I’m glad I came.

Good spot. Pubby vibe, in an American way, and they have a good range of beers. I didn’t notice anything too rare, but they lend support to the local Craftsman stuff and they have a good list of other beers as well. We had a well-priced bottle of relatively old gueuze as well. The service was ok, but the guy had no idea what we were talking about trying to order that lambic, which is funny in this era of educated servers.

As divey as dive gets in California where there is no smoking. We went on a not very busy night, service was serviceable, the tap list was big, prices were high, but overall I had a good time.

Been going to Lucky’s for years. It’s always a good place to go but it has been getting really run down the last few years, and not the good kind of run down. Not sure how often they clean their taps or anything else for that matter. Great place to see a soccer game and drink from a wide selection of California and European brews.
Always fun to go. Its just off of Colorado in Old Town. Last time I was their they had all sorts of Belgian beers on and got to try a few new ones for me.
