Only knock is the acoustics. It got loud on a Saturday afternoon. Otherwise than that, great place. Great beer, especially the ipas.

Got to try their smoked maple porter and thought it was fantastic. This place reminds me of an ice cream parlor..an ice cream parlor that serves beer. The bartender was nice enough to check a recipe for me. May not be a place you can spend a lot of time in, but definitely worth stopping in for a pint or 2.

Brewery nestled in skid row staffed some generally good seeming guys who have sadly succumbed to the hipster-douche influence. Welcome to Smog City, I guess. What did I expect coming to a brewery called "Mumford"? At least the beer is better than Verdugo West's...

Enjoy the harassment from local homeless as you approach the doors of this gentrification magnet. Lock your car doors, lads.

Beer is served in shaker pints at New York level prices (and at L.A. level quality).

They call their Belgian enkel a "single" because why Google it, right? Oh well, at least they didn't stylize it "singel." (And hey, our consumers are obviously uncultured idiots, so they'll appreciate the clarity...all you have to do to make a Dutch word English is reverse the latter two letters apparently).

They're steering into the skid of the hazy IPA fad. Can't blame them - that's where the profit is - but though they can afford proprietary hops (e.g. Mosaic) they aren't making very good use of them.

I didn't have any food; apparently they serve pretzels (per the website) but there was no signage in the brewery. I suspect if you can order them, there's at least a 20% markup.

So long as these cats chase trends they'll be fine since rent in skid row is low. Smog City's denizenry is craving beers better than the Golden Road schlock that's plagued the city for years, so I can't blame them for trying to convince themselves this brewery's beers are on par with those from San Diego, the Bay area, and hell, even the central coast.

The beer, to be fair, is above average. And that would suffice if they were putting it out in sixers at $10 or less.

I guess I'm just not seeing any inspiration, originality, or passion in what they're doing whatsoever. I can't knock wanting to cash in on trends, and they're probably only a "lupulin powder triple dry-hopped" marketing gimmick away from generating lines for can releases, but there's not a single beer on-draught that seems like the brewer(s) actually wanted to craft it, and you can only ride the homerism wave so long afore it crashes.

Wouldn't care to spend a Friday night here, nor would I recommend it to others, but in a town as desperate for decent local beer as Los Angeles, I'm unsurprised this is somehow garnering fans for itself. And when people will pay $12+ a four-pack, I have to tip my hat to the owners...this business could be genius.

C+ / ABOVE AVERAGE
