I gave them a couple of extra points in the selection category because I felt they deserve more than an 88.
This is LAís first brewery in a long time - no Angel City does not count.
Itís a father and son and it appears as though no one else works there. They have a nice little tap room with a big window that overlooks the brewhouse.
They bring in some guest taps and usually have their whole selection (which is limited, they are new and small) and the brewers take time to talk to patrons. Nice touch. I actually met the son (red hair, forget his name) at Tonyís Darts Away while I was sipping Solidarity, their black mild ale. The bartender said, thatís the guy who brewed it and introduced us.
I hope these guys have great success, they are cool and in it for the right reasons.

In LA, no one does it better than ERB. This little brewery that could has a very classy setup. I love getting growlers filled and looking through the glass at the brewery equipment. It is an authentic brewery experience right in town.
Top marks for service and vibe. The beer is great but limited due to their size. They do have some guest taps on usually, but I go for the local fresh stuff.
Ting is one of the owners and is a pleasure to see. The father and son brew team is usually around too.
very hard to find brewery, especially at night. very dark street, brewery has no signs but has a orange door and food truck outside. Nice small tasting room with a view to the brewery, 6-8 house brews with a couple guest taps and a bottle cooler. fun place
Eagle Rock is one of the few breweries in Los Angeles and it happens to make some fantastic beer. It also happens to be close to where I live which is a very nice perk.
The tasting room is super cozy and intimate with a view of the small brewing area . They only have a few taps and there isnít much variety but what they have is good. Get Red Velvet if you can!
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 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 itís busy itís 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. Canít really beat that.
