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.

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!!
