Went here for the Dogfish Head 120 Minute Tasting Event. Absolutely epic beer menu with so many choices. They had so many beers that I haven't been able to find in my local stores. The staff was really friendly and helpful when making a decision on the different beers and styles to choose from. Food was good, typical pub grub. Loved the atmosphere, lots of savvy beer drinkers in the crowd. Its a bit of a drive for me, but I would definitely return just for their selection of brews. Loved this place!

My review is for beer only. I may have ordered food before, but I don't remember, so I won't review food.
I visit 38 degrees a few times a month. I usually sit at the bar and order 3 to 4 tasters on tap and either talk with folks at the bar or watch whatever is on TV.
They have a pretty good rotating tap of various types - Belgian, west coast/regional/national, etc. They also carry some of the newer craft breweries in the LA area, so it's nice to be able to sample those. They generally have something from Russian River on tap, either Pliny or Blind Pig.
The prices for the tasters are okay. They range from about $2 to $5 per.
I live in Monterey Park, so this is the best bar located near me. I like it, and I'll continue to visit 38 degrees.

I visited 38 Degrees this past weekend. The space is pretty modern with a normal restaurant area and a bar area. I sat at the bar and ordered some sweet potato fries that were good. I was pretty drunk by the time I made it here so I only got 1 taster but I appreciate the fact that they sell tasters individually as well as in pre-picked flights. The quality of the beers was great and things were served in the appropriate glassware. The service at the bar was good even though they were busy at the time. Prices were reasonable for my tab. I will definitely make it back here sometime when I am a bit more sober so I can enjoy things more.

I happened to be in Alhambra which is rare for me so I decided to stop in. Wasnt in the mood for beer at the time, but what the hell, I'm here!
Very cool joint in the heart of older Alhambra which is a very nice spot. The place is decorated nicely, trendy with class. Well situated bar and seating area.
A very healthy amount of beers on tap and not just any beers. Very current sought after beers that make you do a double take. And the bottle list amazing as well.
I couldnt decide on a beer so I did a taster flight with 4 amazing picks. Rapped with the bartender for a few minutes about beer, he was very accomodating. The only thing I didnt care for was the pricing on the flight. It was billed out as individual glasses based on what beer it was and some were quite a bit more expensive than others.
Wasnt that hungry, so I ordered a salad from a very intriguing menu filled with great choices. Very well made salad with huge taste. I want to go back and order some of the other things I spied on the menu. You can tell they have a chef on staff, not just some cook hired from Craigslist.
Overall great experience. Great brews and very satisfying food. If you're in the area, stop by. You wont be disappointed!

Did a bottle trade and met here. Went inside only to check it out and ended up being really impressed with the tap selection so I ended having lunch. The tap selection was very impressive and the bartender was very helpful. It's refreshing when a bartender knows his/her stuff about craft beer. I ended up with a flight of 4 beers. The bartender then recommended a sandwich that ended up being one of the better sandwiches I've ever had. I recommend anyone to try the Ménage O' Pork if you can take spicy food. It was delicious. Overall I'm definitely going here again and I recommend everyone else give it a shot if they're in the area.

My wife and I love this place. We've been coming here since they opened. The management and wait staff have always been great. They share our love of quality hearty beer and food.
There are places with a greater number of taps but Clay and James do a great job of keeping their beer list populated with excellent choices covering the range of styles and breweries. I often wonder if a place with too many taps has trouble with lesser ordered beers going stale. No worries here. The taps are always fresh and tasty.
