Solid tap list ranging from uninteresting macros like Interbrew to Craftsman, Sierra Nevada, Aventinus, Youngs, Stone, and also some Belgians that you don’t often see on tap. The prices were a bit higher on average than other places that I visited in California.
The staff was friendly and attentive, some didn’t really know what was available though which seems like a common problem as a number of beers that I asked for weren’t available.
The food was fairly typical English stuff that I don’t often care for. I went with a curry dish that was pretty solid though and paired it with the Craftsman IPA.
They also had a wide range of glassware for sale in the front.

Came down here on a Sunday night. Fairly nice little place. Drove from Anaheim, which was a haul, but easy to find this place. Nice neighborhood and good parking. Inside is fairly big with many different seating sections to tickle your fancy. Quite a wide selection of tap and bottled beers. Nothing really special though. Most everything is widely available in bottles or belgian (which is pretty nice). They had a ton of craftsman taps, but they were 90% out, so that did me no good. The service was scetchy but overall I could certainly jive here with a couple beers. Food was GG-rreat. Pasties and pie.

The beer menu is fairly extensive for a place like Pasadena, but not like the classic beer bars (i.e. Toronado, Hopleaf, Map Room). They were out of some of the better beers on their menu. The servers are very helpful, but don’t know the beers very well . The barkeep on duty was fairly knowledgeable, but not very friendly. I loved the patio, which is next to a pedestrian-only alley, especially when the weather is good (most of the time in Pasadena). The fish & chips were good, and so were the mussels, but the rest of the menu seemed rather ho-hum.

Nice wood everything bar. Very knowledgable and polite waiter. My wife thought he was cute. :( Food was...ehh. The beer selection on the menu was very good if not a bit pricey. I ordered a total of 22 beers while I was there. They had 6 of them. Very dissapointing. Does not say good things about management.

Wow. LB’s is a beer lovers dream on any given day. It gets better when they have various fests. Recently I attended a Belgian fest and an IPA fest. they get in some great brew, but the top notch ones go fast, so get there early. Food is just okay, and the service can be spotty depending on how busy they are. #1 for beer selection though, which is the whole reason to go there.

They have a great tap list here of things you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else. The decor of the place reminds me a lot of a European pub. Service was pretty good and the food decent, although the menu is a little short. Good use of proper glassware and fairly knowledgable staff. Definitely worth checking out.

Nice looking place, but I wasn’t that impressed after all I’d heard. The waitress was kind of rude, the prices were high, and the selection was just ok, at least among places that actually seem to care about their selection. It’s cute that they serve their sampler size in a miny Chimay glass, but that doesn’t make up for the fact that their Celebrator on tap is obviously NOT Celebrator, or at least it is the most messed up Celebrator I’ve ever tasted. I’ll take so many Chicago bars over this one: Hopleaf, Maproom, Clark St. Ale House, Delilah’s.
