Vibe: This place has a very large and airy feel. Half of the seating are is open to the sky and surrounded by walls while the other part feels like you are in a large barn or warehouse. There is a long bar running along the wall of the covered area. A photo booth and children's play area are also inside. There are lots of TVs.

Quality: Beers were served at the proper temperature using a variety of glassware including snifters for higher end beers.

Service: I was there with a group of five on a Saturday night and we didn't have to wait for a table, even though the place was crowded. Service wasn't that bad, but it seemed like our waitress could have come by more often.

Selection: The place had 50 beers on-tap, about half of which is a regular selection and printed on the menu. A list of rotating taps is displayed on TV monitors and on rockn.com

Food: I tried a Bacon Blue Cheese Burger, which was massive and rather tasty.

This review is for Rock & Brews (R&B) El Segundo on Main.
Beer landmark: El Segundo Brewing is across the street.

Parking is available on the street and in the rear lot off Franklin. We got the last spot in the lot on a Thursday around 4pm. Main St has an entrance and there is a "backstage" entrance from the parking lot which has steps leading down to the outdoor communal seating area. It's casual with varnished wood picnic tables and benches, lots of umbrellas, heat lamps, a few tv's and a view into the covered bar area. Children get an activity sheet/menu and have a play area.

On to the beer! The server provided a huge draft and bottle menu, like the Cheesecake-Factory of beer. There is an updated tap list on their big screens and website. Monkish was visiting for Pint Glass Night: $8 for a beer and keep the brewery glass.
Bottled beer prices are pretty steep but selection is abundant.
Food is similarly priced on the high side but they have a little of everything- even a twist on the veggie burger (vegan: hold the cheese & aioli). It was a good value for the portions but nothing spectacular.

Service was pleasant and efficient from our main server, even when a food runner accidentally brought out another persons order. I'd return for pint night, for a rare draught find, or with out-of-town guests-–but it would be tough to be a regular.

I've been here a half-dozen times or so and I really like this place! Very interesting food menu with lots of great choices. I try and have something different each time and so far I have not been disappointed. The real reason I go, though, is the beer! The beer selection is excellent and always changing. I've been places with more tap handles, but they also have a pretty good bottle selection here (you can go to www.rockn.com to see their current beer selection). I really enjoy the atmosphere, too. They have sports and music videos playing on several TVs. The music is good and not so loud you can't have a conversation which is refreshing. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, too. I've never had a problem finding parking (of course we go during the week or early on the weekends) which is also very nice (I wish I could say this about more beer places in L.A.).

I was recently in the area so I decided to visit this place since it is literally right across the street from El Segundo Brewing. It's sort of a weird setup with a big open space where there are picnic tables and a bar area as well. I am not sure how things work when it rains since half of the area is open to the sky. Lots of random music memorabilia around the establishment. I sat at the bar and got a few samples which were very generous pours. The service was pretty good but it was busy so I wasn't expecting too much. They have a good selection that shows rotates through on TV screens. They also have a pretty solid bottle list with some harder to find beers and a few I had never even heard of. The one downside that matters is that prices are a bit high with lots of $9.00 pours on the menu. Overall, it's a pretty solid spot and I would come back again if I was in the area.
