Large space in a small brewery,surrounded by barrels. Jam packed at noon on a Saturday, but still had fast, efficient, friendly staff, plus Dawn the Beer Fairy. What else can you ask for?

warehouse ambiance. divided tap list between Lost Abbey and Port Brewing offerings, with most of the standard lineup taking up to two-dozen or so taps. Only a few small batch beers available during my visit. Small sample sizes available of everything. Call me underwhelmed, but I don’t find myself in love with Lost Abbey beer so my appreciation of their taproom is strongly tied to that. Still, a fun place and worthy of a stop when in Southern California, no doubt. Wish I was into their beer, though.
Been here many times since they opened. Despite having lots of room the place is usually packed. Lots of taps and usually a few interesting/experimental beers. They also have plenty of bottles for onsite or take away. Service can be hit and miss.
A big where house with the brewing, barrels and a huge bar. Pretty basic, no chairs and food is by invited food truck. Since they don’t manage the food, I don’t think it is fair to rate. Samples and draft are cheap, but unlike all the patrons I can’t drink the cool aide. This isn’t as great as the hype.
The bar is a large L-shaped one with the tap list on a chalk board straight ahead with all the prices and available growler fills/bottles on it. They also have printed lists of their "reserve" bottles such as the Veritas beers, Isabelle Proximus, Duck Duck Gooze, Angel’s Share, etc. This is probably the coolest thing about the "new" Lost Abbey.
The brewing equipment and barrels for aging their beers are all over the place and provide a cool atmosphere. This is especially true if you’re like me and like to nose around and see what beer is aging in what barrels.
The service is still much the same and often receives mixed reviews, but I have never had a problem here, in fact, I’ve always had awesome experiences here.
They do occasionally have food during special events, but as a rule, they still don’t. Be sure to eat before you come, because it’s easy to be here and drink a lot before you finally bow out.

Visited on Friday 18/04/14. Located in an industrial unit not far from a few other breweries.
20+ taps, left hand side of the board is Lost Abbey, right hand side Port brewing.
The place was pretty packed but the service was very good and prompt.
About 15/20 bottles to go but most of the interesting stuff had sold out.
T-shirts/merchandise also available.
Lots of cool artwork on the walls to the left, Lost Abbey satanic themed pictures.
No food available which was a shame as something always helps, even if it’s just potato chips or jerky.
Solid no frills taproom, outstanding value at $1 per taster!
Visited in the late afternoon on a Friday. This is located out in the middle of an industrial park, like many breweries in So. Cal. Great little setup, though there is no seating at all, just standing around barrels. Selection for both Lost Abbey and Port Brewing beers is solid, though there was hardly anything I hadn’t tried before (had it all from a bottle over the past few years). Prices are very reasonable. Service was only okay. Worth a stop if you have time and wanted to tick a bunch of Lost Abbey / Port beers.
A fully functioning brewery in a large industrial complex just off 78 (Hops Hwy). The bar service was good and handled the growing crowd well. There were a few new items on tap alongside their year-round offerings. The bottle selection seemed to have just been obliterated so there was very little left from which to choose.
Stopped in to pick up my tracks and have a few tasters. Kind of an industrial space, but they make great use of it with a large bar and seating area. 4oz tasters are $1 (!!), and they have a bunch of stuff on tap. Friendly staff as well. When I was there they were out of a ton of bottles, but they had Tracks 4-13 for onside consumption at $20 each, which was pretty cool.
The ultimate warehouse/garage brewery except this one has incredibly random artwork, lots of brewery one-offs, and a friendly atmosphere. I marveled at how good the prices were and how much parking they had. It definitely sets a scene and the beer is some of the finest you’ll find anywhere in the world.
