Went there during their annual IPA Festival--over 70 IPAs on tap and 2-3 rotating on cask. Amazing selection, esp. of SoCal IPAs.
The place is right on the boardwalk. It has kind of a dive bar feel, but I kinda dig that. Then again, it's right next to the beach which helps, too. The place can be loud with music playing from a jukebox or sometimes a live band playing. There is a quieter side bar where the regulars hang out.
Had the kebab while I was there. Maybe I was a little tipsy, but it was awesome (great bar food, IMO!).
Great place--can't wait to go back!

Western Montana and South Bay meet. Very fun atmosphere. IPA festival is super. Good selection of ipas. Southern California is well represented. Cool music and good place to get away. I would bring myself here again and/ or family. Relaxing and low pressure.

Right on the water and classic rock cover bands rock out when it's sunny on the weekends - so pretty much every weekend.
Great draft selection that is ever-changing. The owners are passionate about what beer they are able to get their hands on. Ask them about something they don't have access to and you can tell they're pissed about it. Don't mention Alpine Beer Co.
They've got pretty solid bar food that showcases a variety of fine, fried items. The real winner is the pita plate. Chicken with muschrooms, onions, jalapenos, lettuce, pitas, and hummus. Unreal and pairs really well with an IPA.

This place definitely falls under dives in a great way. This is not your trendy craft bar with stuck up self proclaimed "beer connoisseurs" talking out of their ass about terroir. Its directly next to the docks which adds a nice atmosphere. Has a kinda scummy sea-ness to it. Although i'm not sure how to describe that better, I mean it in a good way haha.
They have an amazing amount of beers on rotating tap. I've never seen less than 50 different ones available (they also have bottles of course). The aspect I like is that they have more than the regular found everywhere craft beers. Recently I was there and they had a 2009 double dead guy on tap woop woop! You will hear of events being hosted here as well. None are expensive and all are well worth it. Keep an eye out for their announcements when we get to LA beer week. Service wise it is beautiful, never have to wait more than a minute. Its very impressive. As well as being staffed by what seems like only beer geeks. That makes it a great place for you rookies out there. Don't be shy to ask and learn!
As far as their food I never tried it. Always seem to have just eaten before i go there. It seems like your regular bar food. No frills, nothing fancy, just some hearty looking bar food. Great spot
