Not much has changed over the years aside from the amount of beers available. The house beers are pretty good, and every time I’ve been there I’ve found at least one or two new beers to try. They also do casks every week.
Service is always fast and attentive. Food is really good. If you eat there try anything that has the pretzel bun. They have a little bit of everything but what gets me every time is the smoking woodchip aroma; makes me want to buy some pulled pork.
They hooked us up for RBSG ’12 as well. Great people, great beer, great food, and a scenic area. Oh, and if you need more ticks go down the street (literally, just a mile further) and check out Lab.
I’ve gone here a couple times as I sometimes work relatively close by. Very cool place, despite its location in a little strip mall. Well decorated, friendly staff, half-decent prices, and fairly good beers. The food is supposed to be great, but I’ve never eaten here.

First stop of the tour. No issues with parking in the large lot. Place was fairly empty on a Tuesday afternoon. Service was friendly, but really slow overall. Beers available in taster sizes, so I ended up trying several. I was in general impressed with the beers that I tried. Prices reasonable. Did not try the food.
Very nice place with 10 brews all of which are Belgian inspired. Recommended.

Wow, how refreshing it was to visit Ladyface. This establishment has everything down to a perfect science: beautiful scenery, gorgeous ambiance inside and on the patio, a vast assortment of their high quality house beers, good selection of guest taps, quick/efficient/friendly/knowledgeable staff, and high end gastropub level food. Their own house beers are excellent, way above average quality with an affinity for saisons. Our food was incredible: the olive medley, pretzel, jalapeno mac n cheese, fries, pork belly BLT. Even the cole slaw with the BLT was boss, some of the best I’ve ever had. Prices were decent, but for the quality of food and beer the prices are excellent. Really deserving of its 5-star status here. Can’t wait to see this brewery hone its saisons and sours down. My only qualm here is that their house yeast is extremely attenuating and gets all of their beers bone dry to the point on the hoppy stuff that it was overpowering.
Finally, an American brewpub that doesn’t try to emulate its competitors! This place is full of personality, from the paintings on the wall, to the terrace overlooking the hills, the Belgian and French-style house brews and the overall vibe. Guest brews were very well chosen too, but the house beers were good enough for me to forget about the other taps. Their Bière de Garde (Dérailleur) was stunningly authentic and I hope they make it a regular. This is a wonderful stop near the highway north of LA. These guys deserve more recognition amongst craft beer lover circles.
Oh hell yeah...great freaking place. Service was top notch. Loved the decor. Good beer, damn good food. Awesome!

Visited to interview the Cyrena and Dave for an upcoming HopPress article. As far as the brewpub, it is a gorgeous little building with a nice sit down restaurant area and a long bar. Currently 16 taps, most of which are guest tap (and ALL of them craft beer, and good ones at that). Currently they only have two of their beers on, but they plan on doing more soon. They do growler fills, and have a new beer engine to do weekly cask beers (according to Dave). Their brewing facility is connected to the restaurant area, and is a small little 3 fermenter set up (brand new equipment). Some room to grow. Barrels on the wall, this place will have sours available by summer and they sound fantastic. Parking was easy. Didn’t try the food on this trip, but the Chef has some big name (Spago anyone?) restaurants on his resume, and the aromas from the kitchen were delicious. I look forward to eating and drinking some more of their stuff the next time I am back. I expect that this brewery will be one to watch in the next few years, they are really on the path to excellence! I’ll include a link to the HopPress interview once is ready. In a recent trip I sampled their burger and my friend had the Coq-a-la-biere. Both were awesome!
Difficile de fournir un compte rendu honnête mais des 6 échantillons de leurs bières maison, seul la scotch ale m’a impressionné. Le reste était au mieux acceptable, disons que la table est resté garnie à notre départ. L’assiette d’humus était excellente et les assiettes avaient l’air très solide, probablement une force de la place cette cuisine. Le choix de décor médiévo-industriel et le visuel ésotérique me laisse perplexe dès le départ....Ça n’a sûrement pas aidé. À revisiter.
Small little place with a coffee porter and 4 Belgian styles of there own on tap. Decent selection of guest brews on tap including RR Blind Pig. Small but great bottle selection. Burger was was so-so and expensive. Frites were great. Nice place but unsure if I would go out of my way to go here. Then again there is not a whole lot in the area.
