Went for dinner and brews with some (Mormon) friends who live in LA as I was passing through. Quite cool of my friends to indulge my hobby and take me to the beer parlor though they do not indulge themselves. The atmosphere could maybe score higher if it weren't so loud in the place. It was full-ish, but not late and not a weekend, but it was difficult to converse due to the acoustics. The food was good and reasonably priced, and had some funky twists like sausages made from atypical meats like venison and boar. But food was not the main motive for going there, or bothering to review the joint!

I started with the FiftyFifty Eclipse Elijah Craig 12 year. It was awesome, one of the best beers I've ever had. In retrospect, it shoulda been desert. Well, it was, I had another later! Damned good beer. In between I had Lagunitas Sucks, though I was thinking I should have something else that isn't so widely distributed, but it sounded good and it was.

There were 24 taps, with the lists displayed prominently on at least 2 large video screens. The bottle list was not huge but thoughtfully selected and inviting. And there was a vintage bottle list of older and hard to get stuff. Some reasonably priced, some priced to reflect the rarity, and understandable to me, though I'd never drop that kind of coin for a beer.

All in all, any beer geek would visiting this place should find some things to make them happy. It would be silly not to drop in if you were in the neighborhood and had the time to do so.

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.

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.

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...
