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.

Finally found a great bar with a wonderful selection of Belgian brews in the Greater LA area. The place has beer and soccer banners on the walls and ceiling. The bar staff is generally attentive. The selection of beers is great - got to try a good number of beers that I haven’t seen served elsewhere. They also have a great outside patio seating area, so you can take advantage of the (generally) great Pasadena weather. Haven’t had the food the times I went. A fun place to go for some great beer.

Drove 300 miles to attend its IPA festival with over 40 IPAs and Double IPAs on tap. About 60 taps overall. Also known for their Belgian and Barleywine beer festivals. The owner is very friendly and generous but the bartender was a little cold. On this particular day their was quite a foul odor lingering around the bar area--most likely from the dozens of kegs jammed into ever corner. Otherwise a lovely little place in pleasant Old Town Pasadena with good English pub fare and fantastic outdoor seating.

kind of like a soccer pub put into a house that just didn’t give in to the genericization of pasadena. that is very good. so many chains are invading the town, but this gem has great selection. very hard for me to decide what to have there! good british pub food.

Lucky Baldwins is an awesome place to go and hang if you want to get totally blasted on high alcohol beers, but realistically it is a NIGHTMARE if you’re going there to taste your beer. There is little room to sit, usually standing room only and good luck finding a waitress. Overall though the selection is very good with multiple beers, many rare, to choose from. They have some very cool festivals here every year. Like i said, i just wish this place was larger...seating is primo when you want to sit and enjoy your beer!

Beer haven. Great selection of draft beers including Belgians and the place to go to try Craftsman brews. Watch out for their special festivals (especially the Belgian) where they’ll feature a certain style for a couple of weeks. Food is decent, service was lethargic.
