Finally made it out here, helped there was a BA Gathering, I am a Los Angeles native but it still is a thirty mile drive to this place, we pulled up at the address and I saw nothing but a plain building with a "Cocktails" sign hanging down, and I could not believe this was the place, the inside of the bar and the atmosphere definitely made up for anything it lacked from the street, I was only ten minutes late to our tasting and there was already a good twenty people swarming the bar with a ton of Hair of the Dog Adam and Fred bottles sitting in front of them, this place had a pretty cool bottle selection inlcuding Ne Goeien Saison, about twenty taps including Barrel Aged Messiah Bold on Rye, Stone/Mikkeller/Alesmith Tripel collaboration, Stone Cali-Belgique IPA, Ommegang Rouge, Rogue Double Dead Guy, Kasteel, and others, will be going back once they tap Rubicon Rosebud because that beer sounds very interesting and LA only got two kegs of it according to Ryan, inside there was a real cool vibe, fairly dark rooms with a cool lounge in the middle, and a nice outdoor patio, bathroom sucked but whatever, did not eat there since my girlfriend and I ate at the Oinkster and hung out at the music festival right before this event, we stayed about two hours at the bar and it was enjoyable, nice people behind the bar and glad to share some brews with them, had the Dodger game on in the background too, so I cannot complain there, hopefully I will make it back here soon

Loved the vibe of the bar, GREAT selection. Pliny was $12 a bottle which was a little steep. The bartenders were HORRRRRRRRRIBLE!!! After spending almost 70 dollars at the bar she said I could only 2 tastes off the draught. They had a Stone "Enjoy After" in their fridge which should not have been chilled till atleast 2015. Over all I will still come to this bar, but could really care less for the service.

Rapidly becoming my favorite beer joint in LA. The shady neighborhood seems to keep out most of the douchbags and they always seem to have a handful of sours on tap. The Verdugo so far seems to be keeping the California IPA landslide at a distance and the barkeeps seem to drink what they are selling and can talk about the product. High points all around for giving a shit and especially for keeping it scuzzy.

From the outside looks like an old cocktail bar - very low key, slightly grungy. Walk in, very dark, long bar, some booths. Go out back and there is a really nice "beer garden": pick-nick tables and shade, very casual. Would love to hang here for hours on the weekend. Food trucks park in the lot next door and there is an opening in the block wall where you can order. I guess they also have bands sometimes. In a bit of a out of the way location.

Visited as Part of LA beer weeks Walkers Wild ride. They were serving FW Lil Opal. Charging $7 for glass - seemed reasonable.

Visited once before, always seem to have a couple of unusual things on tap, plus plenty of other decent stuff. Have a fridge with interesting, somewhat harder to find bottles (didn't seem like a crazy mark up for a bar).

Service is brusk, but no complaints.

Note - must spend minimum of $10 to use CC, might not seem like a problem, but as I had already been to Far Bar and it was 4 in the afternoon, I could only do one drink. Luckily I just had enough.

If your in the area definitely worth a stop.
