3/5  rDev -12%

Right up the street from the Hermosa Beach Pier

Brew their own beer that is pretty good including an American Double Stout and a west coast style india pale ale

Have a mechancial bull for those who are brave enough

Inside is like a Lucille's Steakhouse mostly if you have ever been to one of those

Food is good, I got the ribs with mashed potatoes as well as macaronni and cheese when I went

Have about fifteen taps including Guinness, a couple Lost Coast beers, Sierra Nevadas, and a few more

Not a bad place if you are in the area and you want to grab a beer

Stopped here on a recent Anaheim trip, after trying to visit a few years ago and finding them closed. The brewpub is located in Hermosa Beach on Manhattan Ave a couple blocks from the ocean. Street parking is available all along Manhattan, although some of it is metered.

The exterior is well-manicured with a large porch. Inside it is very open and there is a small bar on the right side with brewing equipment behind it, with table seating elsewhere, including several with a nice view of the ocean. Next to the Johnny Cash posters, the giant mechanical steer in the middle of the dining area is the most noticeable decor. There was an upstairs too but I did not check that out.

The beer selection includes 4 house brews plus several guest taps from the likes of Lost Coast. Union Cattle's beers were all pretty average and were the standard safe brewpub choices (Hefe, Lager, Pale and Irish Red).

Service was decent on a rather slow dinner. Our server didn't seem overly passionate about beer but honestly neither does the brewpub.

The food was pricey but pretty good. Our steaks were cooked to order and tasty.

Overall this place is not high on the must-visit list for the area but might be worth a shot on a day to watch some buzzed people try the bull and to enjoy the ocean view.

Decent atmosphere but nothing special.

Steaks were very good and the price was reasonable. The portion size and quality was above average for the price.

I asked for a wheat beer, the waitress said they had a Hefe, what I got was a Kristalweizen. It was very good. The fruit flavor was a mix of both banana and orange. It seems to me that most weizens have one or the other but seldom both in such strength as this one. Not too sweet, but plenty of malt flavor as well. (FYI: No fruit slices were added.)
