All California beer and its always changing they have at least 35 taps, not sure about 40 as listed but I never get bored of the the selection.
Great staff, great food, very comfortable.
Before these guys revamped this old dive bar I had to drive all over the place.
The only reason they don’t have a 100 score is because sometimes its hard to get a beer. It gets crowded and loud on some nights.
I go in the aftenoon/evening.
I went here back in March with my lovely Rita on our long-awaited LA trip. This place was definitely a highlight of the trip. We arrived at maybe 9:30 on a Thursday night and it was pretty crowded, as in zero empty seats crowded. The space itself is nothing fancy or condescending, just wood walls with lots of breweriana and even a beer library. We walked the length of the small place a couple times making sure we weren’t missing an open spot or 2, all the seats were taken. We were about to leave and try a different night when a couple at the bar got up and left. YESSS!!! If only we could always have such luck!
We were quickly seen by the bartender, despite the crowd. The beer menu is divided into 2 sections: IPAs and Other. Definitely my kind of place. Everything is draft, it’s all from California, and it’s all awesome, including the 20 or so IPAs. Yes, Pliny was on when I was there, which is a huge treat in itself. Lots of stuff from breweries I hadn’t heard of and apparently some one-offs as well. In addition to Pliny and some other things, I had a sour from Drake’s Brewing called Hyperion that, at the time, wasn’t even listed on RateBeer or BeerAdvocate. I wish I would’ve taken notes and reviewed that too, but it was pretty unique and reminded me a bit of Boulevard Love Child #2 or New Glarus Enigma. I loved it and wish I could’ve brought back a growler.
The food menu is small and revolves around sausage-based fare, which is perfect for this place if you ask me. What’s more, they have Vegan versions of every sausage and they cook the Vegan food on dedicated Vegan cookware. My girlfriend, who is vegetarian, loved this of course. My meat sausage was very good, and her vegan one was probably the best vegan meat substitute I’ve ever tried.
This is such an awesome place. I wish we would’ve gone every day we were in LA. My girlfriend and I talk about it at least weekly still. We’ll definitely be back the next time we’re in L.A.
Had to, had to, HAD TO stop by this place when in the area back in March of this year. This was my #1 stop on our quick trip to the area. I now wish I would have gone everyday. Really cool looking building from the outside, but smaller than I thought. As others have noted, the parking is free on the street. We parked about half a block away which was nice. Nice bar that seats maybe 15-20 people. Small tables scattered throughout. A lone pool table and a lone dart board in the back. For having "Darts" in the name, I figured there would be more dart boards available. Ah well, it was free so we played for about an hour. Their tap list was nothing short of amazing. All beers are from CA, and half of them (about 20) are IPAs. I’m in heaven. The service was excellent. Friendly, but not overly so. Got our drinks quickly and in the correct glassware, which is always a bonus. We just missed Pliny, which was my biggest disappointment from our trip, but it was a small price to pay for such an awesome establishment. Were I a local, I would hit this place up constantly. A bar any city would be proud to have.
Great find while working up here in Burbank. Bartenders were great and my sandwich was delicious. It was busy but I still got attention when my glass was empty. This place embodies the perfect West Coast IPA bar. Some tables were playing board games and a lot of people were cooing over the Alpine Nelson IPA. I felt right at home. Thank you!
what can i say..theres something endearing about a place that looks like a cozy dive bar that has one of the best selections in the state of california. The IPA selection is staggering, with at least half the draft selection in dedication to worshipping hops. Be warned: when it gets busy, service can be a little frantic and scarce, but its worth the wait.

Ambiance: A faux dive bar for sure. Darkly lit, typical signs, tap handles and stuff behind the bar. Gorgeous tap towers, could use more seating.
Service: When Dave worked there, he was the man. Paige could manage to make my day even if my dog died. She is a sweetheart. Tony is the man as well.
Selection: An amazing, fresh selection of California Craft.
Food: A very focused vegan and sausage menu, the sausage sandwich I had was wonderful.
Value: Typical Los Angeles beer bar prices. Around 6-8 bucks a pop.
Overall: Wish I lived closer, that would be my go to joint.
Stopped in on a flight to Burbank based on the recommendations, and boy is it worth the visit! 38 taps, rotating on an almost daily basis (and updated on a daily basis on their website too!) Friendly service. Did not try the food, but everything else just rocks. It is worth noting that all of their taps are California beers, but what a variety is possible with CA beers as your focus. They will also do 4oz flights of any beer that they sell in pints 4 for $9, which is a great way to rack up some ratings. A winner.
38 Taps, All California! Great job updating on Facebook and Twitter so you know right when they tap something special. This place will only get better as they earn more respect from brewers and can get the very tough to find stuff.
Flash fried chips are awesome
