Visited day after grand opening - most of the special beers were gone but enjoyed the selection of beers that I tried. Very easy access from the LA zoo and kid friendly.

Easy parking (could see that It would be a problem if it was really busy). Nice outdoor area, and even better inside. Not huge but not small. All food is self order and pick up at bar. Tried the sloppy Joe, pretzel and a veggie roll thing. All were good - prices seemed slightly high, esp on the pretzel. Quick service.

Sound of the train going by was definitely noticeable (were there about 4:30-5sih on a holiday monday) - didn't really mind though and the kids got a kick out of it.

Got a small growler fill of Either side of the hill (they were only doing fills of their regular line up) - this was my favorite beer that I tried.

Also picked up a six pack of Point the Way. They have a small shop area with glassware and shirts and six packs (even though you pay at the bar.

Also they have a refrigerated display were they display sandwiches other pre made food items - looked good.

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.

Overall vibe is pretty cool. Big place, bigger than I expected. Dog/kid friendly a major plus. Food was quite good. They only have 2 flights of beers that are set. That sucks for us beer geeks. I do understand why, seeing the serious volume they do, but... Also, they will bring you a taster, but they are really, really small. I nearly always offer to pay for tasters, but I like to get at least 3-4 oz. One bad, was the men's room. It was decrepit. However, as a beer fan, I don't consider that too much when rating a place.

It's like a neighborhood cookout every time you go. Good food, fun games, just a great vibe. A lot of parking, no guest taps but house beers are pretty good and diverse
