When I went here the other day I was the only person sitting at the bar. The bartender was quite friendly and talkative which was nice. The atmosphere seems like a restaurant that happens to brew beer rather than the other way around. I was able to get a few flights of their house beers and some guest taps and everything seemed to be of good quality. The selection was good but there was only 5 house beers and 10 or so guest taps on. Overall, I would most likely come back here if I were in the area and I would like to try the food sometime as well.

A: Upscale. Clean, swank. Reminds me of a fairly nice Las vegas lounge. Bar was packed, dining area less so. Dining area seemed a bit more formal then the bar, but I liked both.
Q: House beers were all pretty decent. I'll even go as far to say, better then most of the beers from Ladyface down the road. That might offend some, but do a taster at both in the same day, and decide for yourself.
S: Solid service. Attentive on the water refills, and plate clearing. No mix up, decent pacing, and low pressure to hurry.
S: 5 house brews (for now) and over 20 guest taps. All craft from what I saw, and a good mix.
F: Impressive. Being vegetarian, my options are pretty limited at a lot of restaurants, but thankfully most nowadays at least most have a veggie/garden burger, as does the Lab. However, many restaurants have store bought, frozen patties. Not so at the Lab. The patty was handmade, fresh, moist, and delicious. My wife had the fish and chips, and enjoyed them, and fries were solid as well. The house ranch dressing is also pretty good, (can be a deal breaker for my wife if the ranch sucks)
V: Slight ding here. A bit on the pricey side. $12 for a taster flight, and of their house brews no less is probably the most I've ever paid for 4 tasters. Some beers on tap were $7, where I typically see them else where for $4-$5 (Avery White Rascal, looking at you) Even the local beer from Enegren was $7, when just a few miles away I could get a 5 gallon keg from them for $60 & and a growler fill for $15. At least the local beer, that is hand delivered should be cheaper imho. I know it's Agoura Hills, but due to the prices, this will likely be more of a nice night out destination, rather than a common local hangout spot. I do wish them success though, it was a nice night out, and we will be back.

The lab is in a strip center but is really larger than you expect.
Beautiful setup inside and a beautiful patio area with a tv and another bar.
We ordered a flight of four of their beers.
service as good, waitresses were nice.
The xpa was solid and the big ass red had a good flavor.
Overall a good experience, good beers and a nice casual place to kick back and have a couple.
