When I moved from Glendale to Long Beach on January 1st, I was sad to leave my family and friends to chase the almighty dollar thinking, it's only an hour away, it's not like I'm moving out of state.
I miss all of them but not nearly as much as I miss Tony's. This was my home away from home. I was back there last night for the first time in 2011 and I am seriously thinking of moving back to LA.
People talk about the beer and the food and games all the time but what makes this place so great is the people. Paige is the manager, she is the best. Always friendly and smiling and brimming with beer knowledge to share or current events to discuss. Keith is one of my favorite bartenders ever but he only works a shift or 2 a week. The owner, Tony, is there a lot of the time and he always takes the time to say hi even though it seems he has a million things going on.

The beer is the best on the area. The food is dangerously delicious. The seats are comfy and the crowd is cool.

I resisted reviewing TDA because I wanted it to be my little secret but the word is out, so no point in hoarding.

Pretty much the place to be in Burbank. Great, friendly staff with the right knowledge of craft beer. Great connections with local brewers and tap take overs. Everything you could want in a local place...and of course theres Pliny...

Pliny the Elder on tap. That will get some people through the door.

But there are so many other good beers to be found here. The selection is restricted to California beer, which I suppose is cool, but the problem with that is that Cali (like my home state of New Mexico) loves their IPAs and that can skew the tap list.

What results is a whole page devoted to IPAs, session IPAs and Double IPAs, and then a second page for the other 100+ plus styles of beer in existence. As someone with major IPA-fatigue, this is a bit of a drag. Tony's redeems itself, however, by having that second page chock-full of gems.

My first visit I got a snifter (such a lovely vessel) of Tart of Darkness from The Bruery. I've been wanting to try the beer forever so I was happy to find it on tap. I followed this by getting a pour of Stone's Sublimely Righteous Black IPA, a beer I've never had before because I can never seem to find fresh bottles in New Mexico (and it's never been on tap anywhere). Two scores for me.

I returned on a Sunday with my cousin as I hipped him to the fact that Tony's has football on and wouldn't be too crowded (a complaint my cousin has with many of his local NOHO/Burbank locales). We got there right at 10 and ordered food and beers. It was on this occasion that Pliny was on tap, so of course I started my day with a DIPA. The combo of some decent (not great) food, football, and superb beer is a splendid combo.

In the end, Tony's should be a must-hit if you're in the area.

I think enough has been said on this place and the reviews speak for themselves, but if I could add one thing regarding the service. The service makes this place, the passion and love for craft been makes this place what it is and with that everything else follows. Would not change a thing about this place other than move it to my neighborhood back east (HA!), but since that is not possible I will just continue to enjoy this place on my West Coast trips.

I stopped by here on a trip to the LA area. Great craft beer selection. I came by just to try Pliny the Elder, which I can't get anywhere near where I'm from. They had tons of beers on tap, and the food looked great. Most were ordering a 4 beer sampler kinda deal. We sat around and watched the NFL game on TV at the bar, but if we had got there 20 minutes later we would've had to wait for a table. Cool place.
