One word - FINALLY! Los Angeles has always felt like a bastard child when it comes to good places for beer. I've always had to drive out to Stuffed Sandwich or down to Naja's for a decent beer selection on tap. And don't say Lucky Devil's - nice try - putting something on your beer menu and actually HAVING it are two very different things. LA finally has a great (and I mean GREAT) place to eat tasty food and drink even tastier beer! Kudos to Brian and his staff for a clean, comfortable, beer-friendly environment! It's great to walk into a place and KNOW that a beer lover runs the place. I've been there four times already, and they just opened officially two days ago! The burgers are phenomenal (Kobe beef), the Nachos and Beer Nuts are killer, and the Spinach Salad was amazing! Everything I've eaten there has been solid to exceptional. And the beer! Stone Smoked Porter with Vanilla Bean on cask! Parabola on tap! Firestone's Union Jack IPA on cask! Craftsman Black Lager! And on and on and on! And Brian is constantly on the hunt for great kegs. If you live even remotely within driving distance of The Blue Palms, GO THERE IMMEDIATELY! Only open evenings now, but I heard a rumor they'll be opening for lunch at some point (soon, I hope!). Los Angeles beer lovers rejoice!!

Look, I am as much a misanthrope as all ...or more, but I have no complaints of this place. This is a place that featured Stones Smoked Porter with Vanilla Bean on Cask and Parabola on tap. Sign me up. Plus, the damn fish and chips were AMAZING. And I got to meet Matt Brynildson,and his champion friends. He was a great guy, who's attitude represents this place. Humble but aware of what potential they have in the business. They work hard to provide a great product. Mission accomplished. Good people great food. You should be going. Please bring me with you.

My beer nerd friends and I have already been to The Blue Palm twice before its official opening this coming Sat the 16th. It's finally starting to be a great time to be a beer fanatic in LA. Right on "beautiful" Hollywood Blvd. Brian (the owner) has done a fantastic job. As with anything Hollywood parking is a consideration but that's the breaks. A really comfortable interior and a friendly knowledgeable staff means we'll be back quite a bit. The food is very good, and they've obviously put some thought into it. I'm sure as time goes on the menu will get better and expand (some desserts would be a great addition).

But it's the beer the Blue Palms is about. I won't get too specific but everything we had was hard to get, and a treat. Gotta love having featured beers on cask and like any great beer locale the taps will rotate some I'm sure. Let's support this new joint! Well worth the trip.

Blue Palms is a welcome addtion to the Los Angeles area. They are sincerely beer oriented and are committed to maintaining an excellent beer list in excellent condition. Altho it doesn't officially open for another week, they were functioning professionally when we visited and I can't foresee any startling changes. There is almost an embarassment of riches as the taps tends towards big beers with no real session beers except for the Berliner Weisse and Guiness. I am wildly impressed that there are no macros or hipster beers, evrything is top choice. I had the Bruery's Berliner Weisse, the Vertical Epic 8 and Rodenbach. I also tasted Geoff 's Union Jack on hand pull, Fred and Old Dubh. Everything was spectacular, I mean c'mon, the lines are pristine and Brian the owner loves his system. I also liked the pricing policy which reflects the rareness/value of the beer. Foodwise, we split a Reuben and a salad. The sandwich seemed salty to me and the salad was good. I'm interested in exploring more of the menu options. This is in an area with really good public transportation so you can take the subway and there are a passle of bus lines that go by. If you're willing to walk a few blocks, there is some street parking in the area. Otherwises, there is a lot right next door and you can pay for that convenience--make sure you get some kind of receipt fom them. Anyway, if you have any interest in good beer and you are in the TMZ, come here.
