On the way back from the beach to our hotel we stopped by The Lost Abbey. Parking was tough but we found a spot around the corner. Walked in what we thought was the entrance to a bare room, kept walking to a large open area looking very much like the warehouse the building is. A small group of people were sitting at the corner of the bar but otherwise was very quiet. A guy came over and explained they were closed today for an industry brew day. He then asked what we were in for. I told him I was looking for a sticker or shirt and just wanted to check it out. He took us over to the bar, sold me a shirt, explained they don't do stickers. He then gave us two free beers for the trouble! What trouble? Guy went out of his way to hook it up on a day they were closed? Awesome. Beer was great of course. Service was impeccable. I would have loved to have stayed longer or visited again but no such luck. Cool place, if in the area I would stop by again in a heartbeat.

The only place to try Lost Abbey and Port Brewing at a decent price ($1 short pours!). The space isn't very nice looking, however. The bathroom experience was a real "what" moment.

Haven't been in a quite a while. Very good beer selection. The guys behind the counter were pleasant and helpful. Pretty fun vibe for a weekday afternoon.

The condition of the tasting room kind of shabby and disorganized. Dirty, dusty, cluttered, forklifts closely running by. You'd think after all the years that LA/Port have been in business that they'd have a nicer joint. Good thing the beer and service were on point.

Came for 2014 anniversary party in May. Great beer selections, most Port also available, aged & fresh bottles. Really nice barrel room in back. I like the brewery feel to this place, food trucks outside. When you've had your fill the bartenders will reccomend another brewery in area, just bring a DD!!
