This place is really dingy looking with a small sized room attached with a stage for music acts. They have a huge international selection in bottles displayed in a cool wooden cooler. Their draft list has a lot of special things on it. It’s super neighbor-hoody, friendly, and charming, but it’s not a place I would take a girl on a first date.

My wife and I were walking and came across this place. Walked in and the place looked a bit like a biker bar and an old western saloon. Complete throw back, and I loved it. Bartender was a tough looking guy who could not have been more nice. The crowd was funny......it was a quiet Saturday afternoon and a bachelor/bachelorette party was there organizing for the day and starting with some beers for the bus ride. When they left all that was there was about 10 older fellows who looked like regulars. Completely random crowd. A lot of beer here! They had cans of Pipeworks I was having trouble finding so that was a treat. Didn't try the food, but looked like your basic comfort grub.
Great place....hope to be back

The only thing bad about this place is my ex boyfriend being there all the time. I miss this awesome beer bar.

Located on the northeast corner or Western Ave. & Fullerton, Quenchers is one of my all time favorite beer bars. It's divided into 2 large rooms plus an outdoor beer garden. The main room houses a large bar, popcorn machine, and several tables, while the second room is used for live entertainment.

Every bartender here is beer savy and they all enjoy talking beer with you. They have close to 300 bottled beers here, many from smaller countries that you don't usually see at other bars. I've had an Isreali beer here, beers from Peru and Argentina, and even a beer from Singapore. They also have an impressive list of Belgians, Germans, and American domestics. They only have about a dozen taps, but they rotate monthly and there is always something new to try. They also offer beer flight samples if you want to try several beers in one visit without having to down a full serving of each. And this is not a snob place either. While they have $10 snifters of craft Belgian beers, they also carry $2 cans of iced cold Genesee Cream Ale along with Blatz and PBRs. It's a friendly bar no matter what your taste or budget. Also check their website for special promotions such as their Euro beer fest, stout week, etc. etc.

As for food, they do have a limited menu of items, but they only offer them after 4pm, so don't come here for lunch if you're coming to eat. Some of the favorites here include Earl's famous chili, and tater tots, and the popcorn is always free.

It can get pretty crowded on nights when they have live entertainment, but any day before 6pm is usually wide open. I've been there at 2pm and was the only one in the place. They don't have their own parking lot, so you either have to find your own street parking, or take either the Fullerton #74 bus or the Western Ave. #49 bus, both of which have stops right there at the corner.

I can't think of any reason why you wouldn't have a good time here.
