Finally Los Angeles has a respectable beer destination, will never go to Father's Office again if I can help it with this place around, I stopped here for the first time yesterday right when they opened after it being recommended by Gabe at Beachwood BBQ, it was kind of pain to park but I found some free parking by the car dealership after searching for a few minutes, in a cool area with the stars on the concrete and all that jazz, anyways I walked in adn went straight to the bar, atmosphere was cool with some old tap handles lining the wall and a somewhat dark backdrop, the place was very clean, the menus were visible, food looked good but I did not try it because I was kind of in a hurry, they had printed wine and bottle lists, great quality, I was stoked to see that Parabola was still around, it was nine dollars for a small snifter, the most expensive beer there but also the best hands down, other tap beer standouts were Lost Coast Java Porter, Moylan's Hopsickle, Rodenbach Grand Cru, Hair of the Dog Fred, Bruery Black Orchard, Victory Fest Bier, Ola Dubh 30, a couple other Firestone brews, and Stone Smoked Porter will Vanilla Bean on cask was very tempting as well, prices ranged from six to nine dollars which is very fair for this area, bottle list consisted of Duvel, St. Bernardus, Delerium Tremens, Orval, Westmalle, Chimay, Firestone, even the 11, Unibroue, Bitburger, Hair of the Dog, Fantome, and Allagash, prices range from five to forty on these, the owner Brian said they plan on tripling their bottle list this year, by the way he is a really cool guy and even offered me a free pint but I was already feeling that Parabola, so I passed and went and grabbed a quick bite to eat down the street, will definitely be going back soon, especially when Firestone sends them that Bravo Brown keg, get to this place as soon as you possibly can (1,869 characters)

Wonderful beer selection and knowledgeable staff.

Food is upscale pub food- burgers, fish and chips, sausages etc.

Beer lines are well maintained and rotated often. (168 characters)

Great spot. You can sense a real craft connection, superb special events... Firestone Walker, Ballast Point, etc... Good food and a really solid bottle list/refrigerator.

Staff is knowledgeable for the most part, but service-wise they need to really step up their game. When it's a special event or busy, bartenders seem to make it a point to ignore patrons. You've got to literally yell and beg to buy a drink. Bartenders act overly stressed, even though they're just doing their standard job. Everybody gets stressed at work, but not at the expense of alienating your customers. If I owned the place and saw my staff behave/work like this I'd be pissed. End rant. (667 characters)

Good selection of seasonals and year round beers. Bar staff knows what they are talking about and almost immediately come up with a good recommendation if you are not sure what you want. They have always been right for my tastes. Food is just the typical bar food, done well, but only so much you can do with it. Overall a very good place. (343 characters)

If you can't see their projector with the beers on tap, they tell you to look it up on their website. I prefer my beer bars to be a bit more friendly than this spot. However, the beer selection was superb. (207 characters)

A fantastic local bar/eatery. Every beer served in the appropriate glass. Fantastic selection of beers. Gets a bit crowded at times but you can always find a place to sit... (173 characters)
