Finally got a chance to go out to Hollywood this past night and visit this fine establishment...and I can say it was worth the drive.
A: Basically a toned down version of Verdugo; Leather seating, dim lighting, and a moderate volume of music playing in the background. Definitely a place to bring a date and/or hang with a few friends.
Q: Ordered a few beers, both IPA's, that were extremely fresh. Nothing to really complain about at all.
S: Prompt and polite. The bartender was great and I even had a chat with a guy who worked at both Verdugo and The Surly Goat. He was even nice enough to open up a bottle of "Hop in the Dark" and share among the customers.
S: 24-32 taps (roughly) of higher-end craft beer. Couldn't ask for much more.
F: Not sure if they serve food.
Overall: It's definitely a trip from Orange County, but well worth it. A must try. Cheers!

An oasis for beer geeks in a desert of stores on Santa Monica Boulevard. Cool, quirkly laid-back atmosphere, excellent selection, great service. Beer list is always slightly different when I go there, which I most definitely enjoy.
Always on my list when I visit LA..
