Had seen good reviews on this place, so stopped in, but was a bit disappointed. Saturday afternoon, and apparently all of the good stuff had been finished off Friday night. Wound up drinking something I wasnt stoked on, but was fine. Service was so-so. Crowd was amusing.

Good to see another Santa Monica craft beer spot come about! And closer to the 3rd St. Promenade, so that is nice. The beer selection was as solid as advertised, a good selection of West Coast favorites (Port, Green Flash, Alesmith Speedway Stout), East coast standouts (Victory, Dogfish, Allagash), and foreigns. I realize that opening day was just a couple months ago, and there as still some kinks to be worked out regarding decor, service, and menu. Overall, I think this place has potential, and Id love to see the owners continue to invest time, money and passion into this project.

The pride here is both unforgivable and damning. Any place that puts "A craft beer establishment" under their name better bring the heat - not put a bunch of really boring and standard bottles up on their mantle like they matter. This place plainly relies on the food - which is unusual and tasty - to carry them across the finish line (in that way, they also steal the Fathers Office strat and combine it with Wurstkuche... but do it worse). The tap list is standard, the bottle list is a waste of time (Wells Banana Bread beer for TWENTY DOLLARS? WHAT?!?!?!) and they advertise a $3 happy hour without telling you that you can only get XX, Guinness and Heineken (or some shit) for $3 while everything else is the same price. Also the manager was trying to enforce an ARBITRARY $15 minimum WITHOUT A POSTED NOTICE. That is dishonest. This place is worthless but for food.
