Went here for the 5th Anniversary Party. The place was awesome! Beer heaven. Tap list was insame with piles of hard to find beers!

Atmosphere is great. Simple Vibe. Low Key

Quality is outstanding. Some great food and huge list of beer. Seasonal food and daily specials are great.

Service hawas great. waitresses are usually helpful and knowledgable.

Selection is outstanding. One of the largest tap lists I've seen at an establishment before.

Food is great. I have trouble staying away from the truffle burger. One of the best I've ever had. Especially when paired with the great beer.

I died and took a glimpse of heaven last night...and it was the Blue Palms Brewhouse.

This place had so many incredible beers on tap, with a tap list that was up to the minute, not to mention hundreds of bottles, including about a 50-75 bottle reserve label.

Russian River and The Bruery were predominately featured the night I went, but you have to check their tap list before you go, as their website is amongst the most comprehensive in the business.

Prices were great, usually $5-6.50 per pint. 5 ounce pours of four beers were $9. Food looked great but didn't try it.

But seriously, so many great beers. It was everything I would hope would be.

I've been going here since they opened. I am sad to see they are in danger of shuting their doors. I'm writing this mainly as an update to that statement. For people that thought you might have missed the final day open this past wednesday there is still time! They have reached an agreement with the owner of the Fonda to stay open for another 2-3 weeks. This is a place not to be missed. Get there quick before they are forced to close and you are left out in the cold until they can find a new location.

I was turning the dreaded 3-0 and I needed a place to gather all my friends to get drunk. I'm an Angelino living in SF, so I wanted to celebrate with friends in LA but I knew nothing about the beer scene in LA. A few Beer Fly searches and I found Blue Palms. I gave my wife the information and she contacted Brian, the owner at the Blue Palms, and gave him all the information for the party. I didn't really know what to expect when arrived this past Friday, but everything was just awesome. Brian, if you read this, thanks for everything. Blue Palms makes me want to move back to LA. The beer selection was great, Brian hooked us up big time, and his back room bottle selection is just phenomenal. Everyone had a blast, I got to drink great beer and watch the Dodgers on TV (a perfect birthday). This will be my go to beer bar when I eventually make my trek back south. It's new (I believe the 1st year anniversary is coming up), so it doesn't have the revere of a Toronado. But to be honest, I think its heading in that direction.

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!!

This establishment is my favorite place to be in Los Angeles. Their selection of craft beer is really un-paralleled, 24 constantly rotating taps, one cask, and an impressive bottle list.

The Atmosphere is comfortable, slightly pub feeling, but with a modern flair. Lots of high top seating, very open room, tap lists projected on two screens.

The staff is all Cicerone certified servers, and great to discuss brew options with. They always have knowledge and opinion on their frequently changing tap list.

The beer selection is awesome. While there's always a variety, I'd say it favors IPAs often. I like that they have imports at times, as well as domestic craft beers from outside California (They almost always have Russian River on tap). They often hold tap takeovers or other events to bring in new breweries.

I've never eaten anything here I didn't like. The Buffalo Chicken dip is a great appetizer, the Fuego Steak Melt, Lobster Mac N Cheese, or Sausage Platters are all fantastic entree options.

This bar has an incredible group of Beer lovers that are there regularly, I've seen their customers share homebrews. (On one occasion a guy gave me a pour of Isabelle Proximus from his personal collection. You can't find people that nice and beer-centric anywhere else.)

Many BA'ers have mentioned their 3rd Anniversary party, which was epic (KBS and DFH 120 at same time!?!), but the Blue Palms is a fantastic stop any day. I frequently check their website (which updates with their taps) to see what's fresh, and will stop randomly, I always come away pleased.

I attended the Blue Palms 3rd Anniversary Party on 8/13, which was my first experience at the Blue Palms. The atmosphere was awesome, saw many familiar faces from previous events. The band was great and the DJ played a nice selection of music. I really enjoyed chatting with fellow craft beer enthusiasts about the massive selection of brews on deck. The selection of brews was truly epic, never thought I would ever taste KBS or DFH 120 which were both available. The taplist inside was also off the charts! The food was amazing. The cow leg and sausage sandwiches were great and everyone was raving about the truffle burger. The staff was great, very friendly and attentive. They were very helpful in making decisions on which beers to try. I enjoyed my experience at the Blue Palms and I will definitely be returning in the very near future.

Very pleased to discover another killer craft beer bar in my area, the recently reopened Blue Palms! You can see the tap list at their website (http://www.bluepalmsbrewhouse.com/pages/beer.html) so you can start the tough decisions early. And when you get there, the list is displayed on a huge flatscreen above the bar - you get to see beers blink off when the kegs kick in real time!!

Plenty of delicious D/IPA flowing here: PtE, Blind Pig, FW Union Jack(!), Sculpin, AleSmith IPA, and their very own Blue Palms IPA. Holy shit, that's 5/24. They had great offerings in other styles too tho- got a taste of Allagash Curieux and a full snifter of Stone 2011 IRS for 'dessert'. All this at about $5.5~6.5! And during happy hour - Tuesdays - you can get Victory Prima Pils (MY JAM!) and their IPA and Hef (apparently brewed by Firestone Walker) &others for 4!

Had spinach dip which was cheesy and delicious, extra chips were provided before I could finish asking. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable all around. Bar has seats with backs instead of stools(my back craves support). Music was great, and not super loud, tv's had sports on.

FINALLY, they have a great Scotch selection, blended (JW, Chivas, Dewars) and single malt (Glenfiddich, Glenmorangie, Highland Park, Laphroaig)! The only thing I didn't like about this place is that it isn't right around the corner from me - I had a great time and will be back!
