Sunset Beer Co is a great place. Has a real family feel to it and a laid back atmosphere. Very nice beer selection. I would like to see more volume in terms of choices. I see beers that are easy to get elsewhere that come and go. They get and have great stuff but I'm surprised that they don't have more.
Good team. Most of them seem to be knowledgable but not snobby - big plus.
Always a good place to hang but the pizza next door is not good. The pizza is not part of this business but it's the place to eat while you're there, so don't come hungry.
Overall, I love having this shop in my hood and I really enjoy my time there. I also think things will only get better.

Right on Sunset Boulevard just a few blocks from Mohawk Bend this was a great find this past Saturday on a trip to LA. This place is both a retail store selling about 200 different cold beers and a handful of wines, and also a very relaxed bar and lounge with 6 beers on draft and you could have them open any bottled beer and have it there for a minimal corkage fee (an extra buck IIRC). Great art on the walls, could use a few more chairs / seating options as the lounge felt full with only 15 people in it.

I enjoyed finding bottles from SoCal and also from Belgium that I have not seen in stores in the Bay Area. Shared a bottle of Dupont Saison I'd never seen before they also had a Lambickx and a Dupont Stout I'd not seen before and then had some nice rarities on draft from New Belgium (Cocoa Mole and Prickly Pear Saison). Took a few bottles and cans home too; would've loved to have seen even more local bottles/cans.

They also had a few older bottles on a reserve beer list (e.g., Parabola), a bit pricier and not sure if those were only for on-site or not.

I did not see any evidence of homebrew supplies being sold - only adding that as I see that is one of the 3 ways they are listed on BA at the moment.

I had to check this place out since I was in the area. Parking can be tough as the spot is in a strip mall with only a few parking spaces alloted in the lot. Street parking was filled up but I got lucky after making a few passes. It's in a bit of a sketchy area as well. Inside it's a cool combo of a taproom and bottle shop. They had 5 beers on tap in the tasting room which was pretty cozy and relaxing. Their bottle shop part was about 10 coolers and some tables with a wide variety of bottles. You can buy beers to go or buy them to drink after a corkage fee. They had a few beers I have never seen before which is always nice. I just got a beer from the taproom which was a nice tulip pour of Victory Helios for $4. I will definitely be back in the future and I highly recommend a stop for anyone in the area.
