Visited once during the weekly bottleshare and once during RBSG 2012. Both times I got very good service from Jeremy and Ting. During RBSG they really hooked us up.
They have half a dozen house beers on including the staples and some experimental stuff. Some of them are traditional styles but most are some kind of hybrids. They also have some guest beers in bottles in the fridge as well as their own beers and merchandise available to go.
The tasting room is very small and seats maybe 30 or so. Even when it’s busy it’s still comfortable and enjoyable. Will be back for sure.
Small tasting room with the year round beers on tap and a selection of three seasonals, too. Beers are all at least decent. I really enjoyed the ginger saison. Staff was friendly and helpful. Cool little brewery and tasting room. Came out to $7 for 7 tasters. Can’t really beat that.
I thought the google map directions were leading me to an ambush, but take that last right and boom, there it is! Small tasting room with a five seat bar and half a dozen tables. Not much for ambiance. I just missed the tour, so I can’t speak to that. They were running 9 taps when I was there - 6 of their own beers and three guest taps. All are available as full pours or tasters. They also offer flights of any four of their beers (no guest beers) for $9, and growlers of the four "core beers." Tasters were reasonable for their own beers, but kinda ridiculously expensive for the guest brews for some reason. Worth a stop, but don’t go looking...
Tucked away in an industrial park. Inside is a clean, angular, trendy tasting room. Small with a few tables. We were allowed to do a $7 all you can drink deal of tasters. They had about 8 beers on tap, all house beers, with some one-offs and seasonals. You can do a nice brewery tour, the facility is small but they do sours and barrel aged stuff. We had their unfinished Flemish red and it was very promising. Staff was very kind, talkative, knowledgeable. Very passionate about their product. Beer labels are very cool- colorful art deco of sorts. Growler fills available. Bombers available to take-away.
Small tasting room with 6 bar stools and about 20-30 seats at 5 tables and benches around the wall. Smells of brewing as I walked in about 10 minutes after they were open (4PM) on the first Friday in July 2016. A couple people already seated at the bar. Bartender was awesome and swapped fluently between English and Spanish with the guests. Nice view into the brewhouse with some wooden foudres and other barrels visible. The smell of a brewday fills the space, warm and malty and full of warm grape-nuts. 7 of their own beers on.
Awesome family owned start up brewery. Excited to see these guys in LA, and enjoy hearing about their big plans. Unmarked warehouse building. Beautiful interior with a large space to grow. Sanitary brewing operation behind the glass (with the dairy tanks of past Alesmith adventures). Tasting bar/area is clean and elegant. Some pretzels on hand, and they encourage you to bring your own food. No samples, and as of right now, no growler fills (they are working on this). Only pints, which is fine because of right now they are positioning themselves as the session beer masters of SoCal. Their business plan incorporates educating the public, and growing up with the still fledgling and growing craft beer scene. They plan on a grass roots and localized operation which is awesome. I must say that there is an odd socialist theme running through their current line up (pint glass reads: "beer for the people", with beer names of Solidarity, Manifesto and Revolution). Wonderful and comprehensive tour by Jeremy. Really a great place that I am extremely excited about for their future prospects. Cheers guys!
Visited during RBSG. Neat little spot. You would never stumble upon this place - especially how the only markings are on a lone door in a seemingly residential area. Tasteful interior. Love what they’ve done with the space. Great staff and solid taps, but they could stand to take a more ambitious direction with their range of beers.
