In a little after 11am on July 4th 2016. Couldn’t tell if they were open from the outside aside from the big “LUNCH” sign sitting in the sidewalk since lights seemed off and the place looked empty. Turns out that I was probably just the first customer of the day, two employees relaxing. Cool bar with plenty of comfortable seating. Fairly big tap list with 30+ things on, wide range of styles, with most being fairly local, and a few from across the country and world. Did get poured a wrong beer (asked for a pale ale, got a stout, bartender assured me it was right and that he didn’t know why, but it comes out that color) got it remedied and ultimately got the correct beer, turns out someone had hooked up kegs wrong. But possibly a bit of a concern if your serving staff thinks a pale ale is black and roasty when the beer menu in house even describes it as orange in color, bright and hoppy. Service was decent enough otherwise. Not a high priority stop though.

I really wanted to like this place. Coolish vibe, solid beer list - this should be enough to move it into decent rating territory. The food I had was so sloppily prepared though and the service was so bad that I can’t really recommend it. Huge servings and low quality are not something I want in food. Server ignored me for 10-15 minutes (even though I was sitting at the bar). Gets a big ol’ meh from me.

Overall I really liked this place. Extensive draft and bottle list and good food. Our experience was marred by by mediocre service. I would come again.

Pretty cool place. Came in here while waiting for two nearby brewery taprooms (Angel City and Arts District) to open. Big list of beers both on keg and in bottle. Plenty of local CA beers on offer. Pretty good service. Beers were a little on the expensive side, I thought. Pleasant ambiance. Didn’t eat on our visit so cannot comment on the food. This seems to be one of the better beer bars in the area, so worth checking out if you are in this neighbourhood in need of a beer.

Handy for LA Union station. Situated in Little Tokyo district hence the food is influenced! Great Oriental Roll with chilli and wasabi together! Beer list is good although when it was quiet mid afternoon staff would only serve one half of the tap menu so my colleague could not have his first choice... They also have lots of bottles of Japanese beers, but I had enough US taps to get through on three visits!

Asian themed food menu with a bit of a "fusion" thing going on (Sake Braised Pork Tacos, Korean Chicken Pizza, etc.). Beer list is mostly US micros, but some Japanese beer, too. Fancy cocktails abound. Not a bad place at all, but certainly not cheap.

Pretty cool place, very easy to get to. A little bright for a beer bar, but the atmosphere is great, the staff is great. The craft selection is on point and fresh. Haven’t tried the food, and reasonably priced.
