So far, the best place to have a beer in the greater Los Angeles area. Old Town Pasadena is a pain in the ass to get to and drive around in, but there’s a parking garage literally next to this place and the price is reasonable. Lots of pretty young things of both sexes provide eye candy/foot traffic and this is really the sort of place where most of the patrons are drinking the good stuff. Only downside is that they are ALWAYS out of my first choice, no matter what it might be.

Best selection of unusual taps in LA. I’ve seen more than 10 Barley Wine’s at a time. Don’t drive out here from the beach though - it’s an expensive cab ride and you are sure to drink more than you intend.

A good beer list and an awesome selection of Craftsman. Good service and good food. Patio seating a plus. A great place overall.

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.
