I've tried plenty of their beers but have never been to the tap room before this.
The room had a giant bar with plenty of seating which was awesome. You could walk around and look at a lot of the barrels which was also pretty neat. They had about 10-15 of LA and Pizza Port beers on tap which was more than I expected.
The only downside was the staff didn't seem very friendly or happy we were there. No real complaints I guess but its easy to tell when someone is enjoying what they do and someone just doesn't care.
Ill probably stick to going to Pizza Port but I'm glad I checked it out.

Stopped in here right after Stone since they are so close together, thought this place would be bigger for some reason. Atmosphere was hopping. It was pretty packed by the time we got there but we were able to snag a barrel to stand at pretty quickly. Love the ability to take your beers into the barrel room, we took advantage of that on the second round of beers. Quality was solid. Lots of original art on the walls for sale to go along with the usual swag and beers. Service was decent but nothing to write home about. I had to wait a bit longer than I like to when the lines were as short as they were and by the time I did get a beer it was 4 people deep behind me. Selection was good but nothing amazing. Only one beer on I couldn't get at home in bottles or draft. I would have loved to see at least one limited bottle on the bottle list but that wasn't meant to be as well. They had a food truck setting up out front when we left but I had just eaten. Prices were reasonable so no problem there. Overall a nice space to showcase a world class brewery. Could use a bit more specialty beers on but I still had a good time checking them out. I would definitely return in the future.
