Awesome place, certainly the best in LA, with 72 taps of mostly Californian beers. My visit saw loads of IPAs/IIPAs that I’d never had before. Prices are quite reasonable except for the pricy samplers. Service was very good and the atmosphere was very pleasant. A must-visit place when in LA. Highly recommended.
Visited for dinner before going to see the Dodgers. This place is very cool, huge mid section with secluded areas, big California beer selection, good Pub food, not too expensive, offered 2 pre-selected flights of ipas and ciders. If you have a car, it may be wise to consider using the valet parking at 6.75$, as parking can be complicated here.
Visited 25.4.16 at noon. Huge and rather fancy space that specializes in Californian beer and spirits. Were too trashed from the day before and in a hurry to the airport so stayed for one round. Fresh beer and well-maintained taps, a friendly and helpful bartender and greasy vegan options on the menu. Too posh for me but the vast and interesting selection made me wish we would’ve booked a later flight.
The bar is on Sunset Boulevard around a mile from Dodgers Stadium with buses running along Sunset from downtown. It was pretty busy on the Sunday night we visited with a 35 minute wait for tables but there was plenty of seats in and around the bar. A great selection of beers on tap though having left my spectacles in my hotel I had difficulty reading it in the subdued lighting! The staff were excellent and our server knew her beer. The Golden Road Point the Way IPA was excellent and the Mohawk Burger hit the spot. With classic rock as background music all was good!
Visited shortly after an IPA fest, hence a menu full of IPAs... Uber local, fresh, the whole nine yards.. Only complaint that I wouldn’t hold against them because it was tap takeover runoff was a beer menu lacking diversity. That aside, this place fucking rocks. If this were in NYC... It would be jam fucking packed 24/7. Food was also quite impressive, had the Mohawk burger.. Bacon & shortrib.. Mmmmm. I was super impressed, def gets an A. Killer tunes all night.
This is a pretty cool gastropub inside of an old movie theater. They really do want you to order food I noticed. That said, the selection here is cool because it is focused almost exclusively on California beers (which for an out of stater is cool, but not as cool as in a state where those beers are not as distributed). The beers are organized according to a variety of different categories, like in many of the fine beer restaurants. Service was prompt. Selection was good. Prices were reasonable.
Super cool building that used to be a movie theater. Nice staff. More of a restaurant than a beer bar but they have an overwhelming tap list of all grade A beer.
The food was really good but the value score is for the beer cuz nothing is over $6.50 including Pliny and Victory at Sea. Cool. I loved my visit and I gave extra marks for great looking girls everywhere. Parking sucks, welcome to LA.
Absolutely terrific draft list, a destination. The bartenders know their way down the list, the servers somewhat less so. This place used to have a noise-level problem, but they’ve fixed it. The lights above the bar are a nice touch -- make it possible to read and drink. The food is average. But the thoughtful, local/regional, IPA-heavy draft list.... serious swoon.
