Visited this place on 12/30/09 with a few friends.

A: It kind of reminded me of a Yard House in many ways. A lot of TV's showing sports, nice seating, good food, and dim lighting. The two things that I enjoyed more though was the lower volume music (could actually hear the person in front of me) and incredible selection of beer on tap.

Q: "Pretty good" would probably be my one phrase answer. The food was something you would find in a nicer restaurant and since there were no off flavors in any of our beers...I assume the lines to be fairly clean.

S: Not too bad...food came out in a timely fashion...as did the beers. The only complaint I had was the somewhat lack of craft beer knowledge our waiter had and the fact my flight came out slightly wrong. I ordered a flight of Dugana, High Tide, Ten Fidy and Sculpin. Instead, my Ten Fidy came out as Hop Rod Rye. This wasn't a big deal to me...mostly because everyone else at the table got flights and that wasn't really fair to the waiter.

S: I would guess 30 to 40 quality craft brews to choose from and a great bottle list. I give them an A+! Oh yeah...they do flights and even half pours.

F: Food was great! I ordered a Turkey Burger with sweet potato fries...and man...it was good. The quality and preparation of the food is very similar to Haven's Gastro Pub out in Orange.

Overall: I'm glad to another place like this in the LA area. Cheers! (1,410 characters)

Nice spot. screen in every angle so you can watch your favorite sporting event. Beer selection was good, didn't try the food but, it looked great. Service was a bit slow but, it was busy and the staff appeared to be working hard. I would stop in again during a happy hour. (272 characters)

Great selection of brews, especially for someone not from CA. Really enjoyed the Russian River selection and a few rare beers. Great taplist and nice variety of to go bottles. Being from the Midwest made this a real treat. Really good appetizers were a bonus. (263 characters)

This place is really cool. I went for the Hoptoberfest event they had a huge selection of beers on tap and bottle. I had Blind Pig, Supplication and Lucky Bastard! One of my new favorite spots. (193 characters)

One of the first beer bars I have been frequently. Its great to have a local place with Russian River on tap along with local favorites.

Burgers are usual go to. the steak sandwich with Chimichurri sauce is amazing. 5 years in still changing menu and offering great beers. (274 characters)
