The beer here is pretty mediocre, but the atmosphere here is by far the best out of any brewery I've ever been to.

First of all, they have cornhole. Who the hell that's not from the Midwest/Flyover states/South plays cornhole or actually knows the rules well enough to play it? Apparently the people at Angel City Brewery do.

Who the hell plays foosball at a brewery? Apparently the people at Angel City Brewery do.

Who the hell shows up to a brewery with high heels in a really skin tight black dress that would make even Coco Chanel proud? Apparently the people at Angel City Brewery do.

What kind of a brewery has a dedicated space for artwork that has nothing to do with beer? Apparently Angel City Brewery does.

and last but not least,

Who takes a selection of 7-8 really mediocre beers and claims that they have a "wide" selection of "good" beer? Apparently the people that drink at Angel City Brewery do.

Okay, I admit the last one wasn't quite called for, but the fun atmosphere at Angel City far outweigh my disappointment at their lack of decent beers. Given the wide array of food choices around the area, Angel City would probably make a good finishing point /last call to a Dowtown LA/Arts District bar crawl.

Great vibe and space. Friendly folks. They make good beer and have good variety. Definitely will go back. Update 8/23/15-more of their beer is making it out to the local bar scene, and is being fairly well received. This is a place to take your large crew as they have the seating.

Very fun and cool space. Very old school LA feel and nice atmosphere. There are quite a few problems with the place keeping it down. First, they are still not done fixing everything. Renovations are still going on even though the upper level island is open. The space is not set up for small intimate groups at all. This is good if you want to interact with people you don't know, if you don't though, good luck. There is a space for games, but it is very small. Selection ranges, but most of the time it is what you can find in the store, with a limited or two, White Nite is on tap every time I have been there, as have the IPA, wit and pils. The biggest problem is that the space is big, but there is only one bar open most of the time. This leads to slow service and takes quite awhile to get a drink.

Dog friendly, which is a plus for me as I have a dog that goes places with me.

Really chill spot located in the arts district of Los Angeles. Parking is kind of a hassle on the weekends when it is usually packed. They don't have an actual parking lot so I had to park on the street about 3-4 blocks away but no big deal. There are usually food trucks parked in front of the brewery so you can enjoy some food while you sip some brews. I ordered the Angels flight which consisted of 5 different beers of your choice. Great tasting bees, fast service and friendly employees. Huge interior with more than enough places to sit. You can also play cornhole, darts and jenga. You will also see some small vendors and art shows inside. Overall really cool experience and I will definitely be coming back.
