This is where the bottle share I went to this past weekend was hosted. It's a fairly smallish restaurant and bar with bar seating, inside tables, and a few tables on a narrow patio outside. Lots of fancy wood and decorations made it seem a bit upscale. They have lots of beer offered with about 10 or more taps and the rest of the beer available in bottles and cans. A really wide and varied selection, but honestly mostly common beers that you can find anywhere. Quality of all the beers seemed to be good with the appropriate glassware and whatnot. Prices were a bit high but nothing too bad all around. I would definitely come back here again when there is no event to get the full picture, especially since all of the food that came out for our bottle share was really tasty.

I must admit, I have been here more than a few times.

Atmosphere is pretty laid back. The place might seem fancy but its really a good place to relax with a few brews.

Quality is very good as well. Never had a skunky or off-tasting beer here and I have ordered from the draft and bottle. Also, seems that they are serving out 3 different glasses and are serving in proper glassware most of the time.

Service is good but I'm getting mostly beers and appetizers. The staff is super cool and most of them have a good knowledge of beer which is helpful

Selection is great! They just changed their beer menu and I think its even better than before. They went from 38 beers to 44 plus a very nice reserve section and 8 taps. No complaints here!

Food is satisfying. Had almost all the appetizers and a few burgers. Above average.

Nice atmosphere, great beers. I'm a fan.

You know that a place is serious about craft beer when they display their current tap menu outside on the street. Hey, one can never have too many beers. Let's go inside....

A rather cozy place. Abstract in design. It's not large inside, there is an outdoor patio that is fenced off from the street. There is TV behind the bar, a large beer menu written in chalk off to one side.

8 taps and 50 different containers to choose. One of the taps was "killed", but the list remained with the likes of Firestone, Ommegang, and Oskar Blues. Moving to the containers, there's a taste of several different countries, a little Tripel Karmeliet, Chimay, Orval, Paulaner, Unibroue, AleSmith, North Coast, Maui....can't go wrong with that. The drafts and containers are reasonably priced, and during Happy Hour the drafts drop to $5. Seeing that, I ordered a Rare Vos. Tastes fine to me, but a shaker pint glass isn't doing it much justice. Behind the bar, I spotted several pieces of beer glassware, go figure.

Friendly service all around. Food options look fun, but I'm not hungry. Definately a neat option for Redondo Beach.
