Mostly California beers on tap with IPA's and DIPA's well represented. Brian keeps everything fresh and makes personal trips up and down the coast to get the kegs as fresh as possible. He often drives out to Kern just to pick up a fresh keg of Citra.
The food is great - I recommend the lobster mac and cheese or the fuego melt (so good you remember it twice :)
Many special events and tastings here. In the past two years at Blue Palms i've seen Greg Koch from Stone, Matt Brnyldson from FW, Ken Grossman from Siera Nevada, Patrick Rue from the Bruery, and Sam Calagione from DogfishHead. The bottle list is superb with many vintage selections.
The servers are friendly and knowledgeable. It can get quite busy when there is a show next door but the crowds often vanish once the show starts.
My go to bar in the Hollywood area.

Stopped in here right after they opened. We had lunch a few blocks away so it just seemed to work out amazingly well for a visit. Atmosphere was a little slow to develop but once more people began to show up it was nice. Service was a little slow but as the server said one of the bartenders didn't show up on time so she was doing two jobs at once. Quality was quite good. My beers were top notch and the food looked quite good, although having just eaten I did't partake. Selection was solid all around. I didn't find anything on-tap that I was that interested in but bottle list was stellar so I decided to get one off there. Took awhile to find it in the cellar but once they did I was able to enjoy it for a more than reasonable price. Speaking of prices, I thought all but a few of the bottles were reasonable and the food was much the same. Overall a really nice place in the heart of the city, I would definitely return if I was in the area again.

Excellent fresh selection of beers.
the regular bartender there could be a bit more knowledgeable and engaging, but I can deal with that when the beer selection is top notch.
Their burger is great, all the rest of the food is just ok.
Price is reasonable considering the area.
