All-in-all a great spot for a location in dire need of a solid beer bar. The bar actually reminded me of a Chicago bar, which is definitely a good thing: focus on hanging out with a great patio area. While there, I had a consecration, three sheets, idiot, and the craftsman saison. All were solid as expected. The service was great; the bartender was generous with tasters and friendly banter at the bar. Service lost some points for simply because the bartender working there didn't have a very solid beer knowledge. Aside from that, very friendly and diligent. I must also note I visited on a Sunday evening and the place was relatively empty. The selection was pretty good. Admittedly, Beachwood has a better selection of the hard to find stuff, but from the looks of this spot, the Goat is surely on its way to greatness. Definitely a fun spot and worth the trek if you are considering visiting.

In my experience I could not describe this as a quiet place. I made the mistake of visiting on Karaoke night, and a constantly painful caterwauling left a slightly unpleasant aftertaste in my Saison. The selection of beers was quite impressive, and the service was quite cordial. It is in a fairly dense part of West Hollywood, so parking can be problematic. I will give this another chance on a night that is not Wednesday.
