Not sure if this place is new or just no beer nerds go there. I’ve gotten off at this exit and driven right by here on the way to Stuffed Sandiwhch probably 100 times and never noticed it, or even thought to look for it. In any case, I’m glad someone added it to the map since they actually do have some good beers. They did a Stone event the week before and were clearancing the left overs. $4 for a pint of Old Guardian?! Same goes for the Imperial Smoked Porter. And if a pint isn’t enough you can get a pitcher for $12... Sounds like a good time, or possibly a bad time. They also carry some locals like Federal Brewing which is just down the street (literally) and LA Ale Works (not sure if they’re open yet).
The food looked good but I wasn’t hungry at the moment. They have the standard selection of normal and fancy pizzas and the price is somewhere between cheap and expensive. The Fresca pizza looked pretty good (mozzarella, tomato chunks, garlic, bacon bits, and unfortunately spinach). I may have to stop in for a pint of barleywine and a small pizza one of these days. The server was very nice too. He made suggestions on the beer and told me that they do these brewery events every so often so the tap list will be rotating. I could see stopping in to see what’s new and local every month or so.
Aside from all that, it’s a pretty standard looking pizzeria. Maybe a dozen tables, very clean, mostly families eating there, and in a large shopping center next to a Target and very close to the freeway.
