This IS the best beer selection in LA. And if anyone thinks otherwise, I wanna see their list. 41 taps, most of which constantly rotate. All micros, belgian, and german. Tiny breweries you've never heard of, but will. Glassware is on point as in there's a good chance your beer will be poured in a glass with it's name on it. Oh and there's a reserve bottle list to rival any other, even the super connoisseur's cellar. The bartenders are very knowledgable and can guide you through a meal and pair beers with whatever you may be eating. Their combined food/booze knowledge rivals this site and Wikipedia. The food is delicious. High-end REAL BBQ, great apps, deserts, and specials. The only complaint is that some food items are overpriced. But when it comes to the meat, the quality is there. This place knows what they are doing and do it well.

This place is fantastic and my favorite place to go when I'm in LA. The beer selection is amazing, the food is great and the atmosphere is tremendous. I'm always welcomed as if I was a regular and the staff is quite knowledgeable and eager to please. Just top notch..

Vibe: The place has a bar on the side with tables opposite it with some more tables in the front. There were a lot of skulls around the place but I couldn't tell if these were added as Halloween directions. Being Halloween, all of the bartenders and waitresses were dressed up.

Quality: Beers were served at the proper temperature using a variety of glassware including snifters.

Service: There seemed to be a lot of staff working when I went there so service was quick. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the food menu.

Selection: The place had about 40 beers on-tap, with about half of them being from local California breweries. The also had two lists of bottled beers - a regular list and a special reserve list. Beers on-tap were available in 16, 12 and 4-ounce pours.

Food: The food was of high quality and had good presentation. I tried seven different appetizers and a burger.

Value: The prices seemed expensive, but they have happy hour specials from 4:30-6:30 pm with discounts on appetizers and 25% off craft beers.

No one's kidding or over-stating: the food's expensive. It's not disappointing but expect to pay $30-50 for a meal and a beer.

I love the wooden style. TVs you can see from almost anywhere if that's what you're there for. There's even a sort of patio which is better than I'm describing.

The tap and bottle list is the best in the city. Father's Office is great, sure, but this place has an edge. Being able to order in different sizes is key. There are quality brews on tap of damn near every style, plenty of Americans, plenty of Belgians and a scatter of Germans. Staff is perfectly capable of recommending.

By far my favorite bar and restaurant in the valley. The beer & whisk(e)y selection is amazing. The food is to die for but bring your wallet. The food is expensive but worth every penny. The bar prices are surprisingly low. A must visit spot, for sure.

The Boneyard usually has a good selection of beers of varying styles available on tap. The staff is very familiar with their beers, the different styles, and is helpful and accurate in describing the different beers.

Their food is excellent, although a bit expensive.
