Had a very pleasant experience here in November 2016. Lots of taps, i think 15 or so. Great ambiance-lots of picnic benches and bar tables in a very open arrangement. There is an upstairs with more seating. Food is provided by food trucks and the one we had was amazing! beer seemed to be a decent value and good across the board. I didnt rate any of their beer since i was there with family but it was pretty solid.
Angel City is a couple blocks from Arts District; quite different vibe. Large outdoor space and a smallish inside. Very warehousey, with not a lot of actual usable space for drinking, which s kind of annoying. Flights of 5 available, on a very nice flight board, that unfortunately is too large and ungainly to set in most of the places you might want to drink. Beer quality is mostly good.
Large, postindustrial space and like decour; blaring music or dueling music decreases enjoyment; two female bartenders seemed more interested in chatting with each other than serving beer, service improved when a third server showed up; flights of 5 available for $11; no food but a food truck was parked outside; no wifi; 16 own beers available - mostly competent rather than awe inspiring
In the door a bit before 7 on a warm sunny Tuesday at the end of June, 2016. Another big warehouse space with a fairly big brewhouse in it. Probably seats or stands a couple hundred people easily, and I’m sure it hits those crowds. 16 beers on tap, flights of 5 for $9, which lets you hit everything in three flights, and one 10oz pour, if you happen to suffer from degenerative ticker syndrome (I do). Turned out it was trivia night, which may have accounted for some of the crowd, but could have also been the great environment and a pile of board games, which most every table near me seemed to be playing. Seems like there’s no food here, but there’s a food truck outside. This particular Tuesday happened to have a taco truck. Coincidence?
Beers here were pretty good. A couple from the 16 stood out, but most didn’t. Not a knock on the beers at all, as they were all good, just many, in spite of probably being above average, were not overly memorable. Lots of solid stuff though, and a really nice environment. Visited again at some point within the next few days. Certainly worth visiting.
A large indoor area and quite a large courtyard outside in which to sample their fine wares. All beers their own, most were good examples of the style (and there were many styles on offer). Busy Saturday afternoon and Sunday night and noisy too!
Dropped in on a Sunday evening -- busy but not swamped. Very cool vintage industrial building inside and out. This place is hipster haven. Beer was okay, service was indifferent. Still worth a visit for the ambiance alone.
A huge open warehouse, unlike many others in it’s enormous size. Lots of art deco, different areas to play and socialize, food options in the closed parking lot and entertainment. One of those spaces that just needs to be seen. Service was bar and a bit hectic, but it works. Lots of different beers, but none really of note. A great space that is worth checking out for that alone.
