Seriously this place is rad. Cool spot in the arts district of LA. Amazing rattlesnake rabbit and jalapeño sausage with some crispy Belgian fries. It seems that people mainly come here for the crazy sausages but really you can't forget all the amazing Belgian beers here. This place is worth the drive, wait and not so great parking. Cool place to hang out.

I love this place 24 Belgian, and German beers on tap, with another 24 in bottles, along with the best Belgian fries and sausages in So Cal. You just can't go wrong. Do'nt forget to get their toasted apple pie ice cream sandwich for your dessert. A very chill place to hang.

This biergarten started my love for beer, so with that being said, wurstkuche is a must. Anyways, its kinda hard not to be impressed by rabbit and snake sausage adjunct with double deep friend Belgian fries and paired with an 1809 Berliner Weisse. From their impeccable sausage selection to their extensive tap system and bottled beer menu, this place is nothing less than amazing. Aside from the pricingand the prowling one must do to find people who may be leaving their table, this place is awesome and highly recommended

It's hard not to love a place that has rabbit sausage, Belgian fries and 25+ quality beers on tap.

The sausages and fries are so good I've gone a few times at lunch and didn't even drink a beer. gasp.

You order in one small room, order and get your beer, then walk down a hallway into a much bigger room, find a place to sit with your number and wait for food. Kind of an odd service style but it works for the most part.

I typically prefer hoppy beers which is not the style here. This is a German and Belgian beer joint and while all of the taps are really great beers, none are hard to find and they hardly ever rotate.

I have had mixed experiences. Sometimes I've waiting a really long time to order, even longer to get food, and sometimes I just eat, drink, drink some more and leave without a hiccup. I would never give a bad review because the line is too long, but I have had some problems getting served because they attract such a big crowd. Just syin...

Atmosphere- Think a classic German beergarten that was completely redecorated by a modernist. The social atmosphere is great, the people are great. A good time had by all.

Quality- Cleanliness and care is clearly put into all aspects of this operation, down to their cucumber flavored water. Their beer is all high quality, and so is their food.

Service- Not much service by design. Order at a counter and self-service water... but they do bring your food to your table. The service that you DO get by design is quite good.

Selection- Not a great selection by measure of quantity, but definitely a great selection by measure of quality. Many great German beers here, as you would expect (including a Berliner Weisse), but also a number of Belgian and US beers on the list to balance things out!

Food- I had the rattlesnake and rabbit sausage with peppers and onions. It was just superb. The side of fries was had with chipotle aioli, and that was about average.

Overall- A place I very much look forward to revisiting!

This place is a madhouse from 5 to 7 p.m. The loft scene and young professionals all empty into this place after work for their fries and obscure bratwursts. The line for food is a bit ridiculous for what amounts to a highbrow Pink's but to each his own, this site is not called Hotdogadvocate.com.

The beers are fairly one note with plenty of german/belgian offerings. Of note they had Duvel Green and some other rare beers but the pricing, $9 at times, is a bit too much given the location and atmosphere. I guess this place is better than Angel City brewing, but it just isn't worth the money and hectic madness. Sitting on park table benches isn't amazing either. Parking situation is a nightmare. These things aren't exactly dispositive but it certainly is a drawback.

Don't avoid, but you may feel that sparing visits may be warranted.
