The road to Golden Road has one major flaw; its parking situation. Although there looks to be ample parking in its own parking lot, it just wasn't enough. Parking isn't any better on the street, which meant I had to come up and hope to find an empty spot. I might expect this on a Friday night, but for a Thursday afternoon you'd think the city decided to give everybody the day off.

Even from outside, the pub looks fun. There's a kids area with a playground and ping pong table, lots of patio seating, and additional seating inside and at the bar. In addition to beer, food is also served, which I wasn't expecting. I also wasn't expecting the bar to be manned with staff so well; with multiple bartenders, getting a drink was easy.

16 house beers were available, on-tap and from the can, plus two guest canned offering from Oskar Blues and Maui. Regarding Golden Road, standard like Point the Way, Get Offa That Brown, and Hefeweizen are served alongside a coffee mild, saison, American wheat ale, and several other variations of the IPA/ pale ale style. Two cask engines sit at the bar, with one in operation pouring a kolsch. Good beer, alongside a large variety of glassware served according to beer adds to the fun that is Golden Road.

I'd do it again, certainly. But next time I promise to not go on a full stomach. Golden Road is well worth visiting regarding any beer itinerary in Los Angeles.

I saw on theskedge.com that the Pub was doing something cool for St. Paddy's Day so I checked it out! The deals were amazing ($5 pints) and they had live music plus some festive things like St. Patrick's colored glitter stations. It was an awesome time, great environment!

My review is based on the Anaheim facility. This place is the standard warehouse taproom. That being said it's a cool place. Nice employees and a great selection. They have some lesser known beers than the ones you see at stores. A must stop for that reason alone.

Textbook brewery taproom and pub. Airy warehouse interior with comfy bar, tables and shop, as well as a nice patio outside. Good selection of house brews on tap (or to go as growlers), as well as a few interesting guest taps. Beer offering covers a good range, though house styles lean towards conservative in interpretation. Good food selection expands on typical pub fare with even some vegetarian options (tasty fried avocado tacos).

Golden Road has a neat taproom in an old warehouse with a great neighborhood pub feel. They have 14 taps, plus 4 guest taps, with some interesting things on offer. I was impressed that, when I ordered the Berliner Weiss, I was offered a choice of syrups to add -- I went with the traditional woodruff. You don't see that many places.

The service was decent and I got lunch there as well; the food is pretty good. I could definitely see Golden Road being a good place to hang out.
