4.28/5  rDev +2.1%
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4.5 | food: 4 | $$

I went here a few weeks ago and have been meaning to review it since.

I went on a Saturday night with my fiancée (who graciously agreed to go - she is not into craft beer at all nor does she understand my infatuation with it). It was busy and took a while to find a place to sit which, whatever, it was better than a crowded "club". There was, however, a sort of "hip" atmosphere which led me to believe some of the people present were not there for the beer (mind you I'm a 25 year old who a year ago probably would have been one of the beer posers there). Overall though, it was lively and fast paced.

I have not been to the original FO in Santa Monica, which I will be visiting next week, but I can say FO2 is very nicely done and the presentation is excellent. Seeing all those amazing taps as I walked in gave me goosebumps.

The service was actually quite good for how busy it was - the bar tender we dealt was very informative and was quick to give suggestions to my fiancée about what beers they had that were "comparable" to ones she may drink elsewhere.

The selection was great. I had a Green Flash Imperial IPA, Pliny the Elder, and Black Butte XXI to finish up the night. Oh so good...I can't wait to go back!

While there I ordered a burger and fries. People complain about the "as is" rule but I thought the burger was pretty damn tasty how it came, though I do wish they had ketchup for my fries...god I love my ketchup!

At the end of the night it was not overly expensive but not overly cheap. However, I gave it the "reasonable" value for the fact the beers I was ordering were twice the ABV as say a bud light which would have been damn near the same price the beers I ordered were at.

Consensus - Would definitely go back again.
