I visited JT Schmid's in Anaheim for the second time this week. I don't have much to say about anything other than the beer. I had a cheese and tomato pizza that was pretty good and tried their sweet potato fries. I had three pints: amber, stout, and IPA. The amber is solid, good, but not special. The IPA is better. It's quite dark and red for an IPA. The stout is the best, though. It is really, really good. The mouthfeel is really heavy and creamy. The finish is very sweet, chocolately, and roasty. A very good stout that compares well with some of the bigger name, highly sought after stouts from So Cal.

This is right next to the Ayres hotel in Anaheim so I went there twice last over the weekend. The restaurant itself is nice with a clean look about it. It was pretty empty both times I went here.

I had the sliders the first time, and these were overly greasy. The second time I went I had the pizza and this was surprisingly good.

The beer is mediocre, which is better than I expected. They don't have a single guest tap, so you have no choice but to drink their beer.

The prices were reasonable.

The service here is terrible. The bartenders had horrible attitudes and seemed like incredibly miserable people. Servers would come up to the bar and talk shit about patrons at tables, not caring who overheard. Bartenders wouldn't make eye contact with patrons and would just walk away when people were ordering. It took forever to place orders and get the check both times. The day shift was bad and the night shift was bad, so apparently the theme of negativity is pervasive with the staff.

Definitely not a place to seek out.

Visited in 2009 to tick their beers and again in 2010 to try the Roggenbier. Both times I stopped in were during the day.

The place is pretty and clean. Really nice counter tops, and tables. Parking is a bitch. There are all of about 3 parking spots out front and everyone else gets to park in the dirt parking lot out back.

Servers are sparse and they dont know much about the beer, which isn't all that bad so long as the info is on the menu. But even when the servers do talk they dont say much, just "what can I get you?" and "that'll be $6."

Haven't tried the food yet, maybe some day I will. I'm imagine that this place fills up on game days as it's across from the Pond and down the street from the Angel's stadium.
