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.

Pros: World class barrel aging program. Pretty good price on tasters and pints relative to bars in the area.

Cons: For the most part awful bartenders/people that work there. There are a select few that can be okay but the rest are overly arrogant particularly the ones that work the front. Hot and sweaty bar area. Just atrocious in the summer. Little to no air circulation and sticky sticky floors. Food options limited to food trucks. Parking okay but the brewery is right in the vicinity of a police station.

Overall: Get the beer. Get in and get out or have a beer or two and hope you get lucky with a bartender you can tip well and still won't treat you like dirt.
