Really great place to visit (specially when it is not busy) they do have various food vendors depending on the day. It does tend to get crowded on the weekends in which is almost hard to get a table to sit down and have a drink with food. They do have a good selection most of the times in which there are occasions that they run out some of their beer for the night. Normally the selection is always rotating to different beers in which at time they do not do Growler fills for some IPA's due to availability. Just wish the tasting room was a bit bigger!

Really cool looking building with a small space. There might have been a capacity for 45 people indoors but it had a great vibe to it. I was fortunate enough that there wasn't a can release on the day that I went, but there were still people in line to get in approximately 20 minutes before open. Quality of the place was good as well. Little bit small, but nothing looked old or out of place. Maybe a little cramped where the vessels are, but that's fine. Service was great and the line for the tap pours was quite quick.

If I do have a negative, on the day that I went there were only 4 IPA beers on draft (which quickly dwindled to 2 about an hour later) and 3 sours. All the beers I had were fantastic, but a bigger selection would have been better.

Overall a really cool place that I would definitely visit again. And although they don't serve food themselves, there was (and apparently always is) a food truck outside.

Amazing place. It can get crowded at times because it's such a small venue, and parking can be very hard. Any time there's a can release you won't get anything unless you're there early, otherwise they do a good amount of Growler Fills so you won't leave empty handed. Amazing hazy ipas and their recent barrel aged stouts are insane.

Best beer around and great staff. Space is small, so feels crowded pretty easily. Can be hard to find a spot to chill at times, but it's nice when you can. Also, free pretzels!

I love all things funky and sour which is why I fell in love with Monkish! Then the haze craze came and I didnt have the patience to wade through the crowds of can bros! But those hoppy, hazy, hella hot beers are delicious!
A must stop if you are in LA!

I've got to say that I was highly impressed by the down-to-earth and pleasant vibe of this place! The lines were a bit long, but I was told that depending on the day or events that are taking place, it can vary. The staff there was super friendly and helpful when I had questions about where to start. I enjoyed a glass of Ciel Noir which was such an absolute delight!!! It's a dark beer (my fave) that was well balanced and surprisingly did not seem heavy at all on the palate!

I really do love this place. There is zero ego or pretentious vibes, which is really heaven on earth to me! Love, love, love! Thanks Monkish! You NAILED IT! (Which is what even inspired me to write a review) I will definitely be back.

Loved this brewery, very cool and laid back. I was surprised that there was a line to purchase beer Saturday afternoon around 12:30pm. It was well worth the wait, the line and everything. Great place and great beer.
