Located in outdoor mall off the 405 Freeway, take the Bristol Street exit, near a Nordstrom Rack, movie theater, and Barnes and Noble bookstore

Stopped here this morning and they let me in fifteen minutes before they even opened, really nice staff and I was the only customer in there along with my parents the whole time

Told me I could try as many tasters as I wanted free of charge, that seemed quite generous but they must not have known how much I could have potentially tasted

Picked up of a half gallon growler of their specialty release, wheat wine for twelve dollars, the lady told me it would only cost eight dollars per refill of any beer now that I own the glass which is a great price

Enjoyed a pint of Balboa's Vintage Barleywine for around four dollars while I was there, but it was too early to try any other beers at that point

Did not try any of their food, but the menu looked good and also reasonably priced, especially the different steaks and chicken dishes, and I would definitely go back to see what all that was about,

They had ten taps in all, four seasonals which was nice to see, they included: Padre Porter, Russian Imperial Stout, and the two beers mentioned above

The other six beers conisted of Red Trolley, Stargazer IPA, Amber Lager, Woodie Gold, Windansea Wheat, and Endless Summer Light, most of these are available in six packs locally as well

Prices were good on pints, in between four and five dollars, like I said before the food prices looked fair, I like to see the specialty beers not costing a significant amount more than the others, always a plus

This was the first Karl Strauss location I have visited and it was a great experience, I plan on going to others in the future, great service, nice people, good prices, great beer, and an all around fun experience
