A uber trendy but down to earth tap room. A bit rare but mellow, relaxed and fun. Service was bar and maybe a bit too laid back. Small but nice selection of beers which you can do as a 1 at a time flight. No food. Nice place and decent beers.

Un étoile montante dans la scène rustique de L.A. Henry brasse dans les meilleures bières sauvages barriquées en Californie. La salle de dégustation n’a rien de spéciale mais les créations d’Henry, oui.

Kinda crowded on a Sunday afternoon. Tasting room is separated from the brewery, but you can enter the brewery and drink your beers there as well. Great selection on the talks, and some bottles were available. Service was good, prices average and all together this is a great place.

Visited the other day. Nice place. Very good beers. A bit crowded and only had one server pouring beers. No food, and I didn’t see a food truck. Samplers at a good price, and they were very friendly. Great place and well worth the visit. I found that most of the beers were better than the ratings.

Visited January 4, 2015.

Finally got in to visit these guys. It’s right across the street from Smog City and a half mile north of Dudes’ Brewing (not to mention close to Red Car and Phantom Carriage) so it’s a perfect place to stop on a pub crawl. It’s a very small tasting room attached to a decent sized brewery. They have a handful of seats at the bar and there are self serve pretzels and peanuts in the brewery. They also have bottles, glasses, and growlers available.

Of the dozen taps or so my favorite was St Simcoe. They also had several vintages of the Magnificat and a coffee version of the Della Vita. Everything these guys make is somehow strange, not necessarily in a bad way, just odd. The beers have black pepper, hibiscus, elderflower, rose hips, chamomile, etc. It certainly gives everything a bit of character. I could see stopping in every once in a while to try whatever’s new and interesting. Nice people too. Prices are high though.

Beautiful little brewery with a bright staff. What defined the beers as a whole for me was the added subtle ingredients that did not stand out too much, but complimented the beer.

Comments: Monkish, like the Bruery, has positioned itself as a non-IPA brewery in Southern California that produces higher priced 750mL bottles only, no six packs. Beers on tap were almost all avant garde and Belgian in style with some flops and some big hits. This is one of the only breweries in California that has figured out how to make a saison, so that is encouraging. Their tasting room is homely and nicely decorated. You can also sit inside the brewhouse on top of malt bags. Generous sample pours for the price in large tasting glasses that let you actually smell the beer properly! Lots of specialty beers that aren’t bottled. Highly recommended, a nice surprise.
