    This new batch of GJG is one of if not the best (non BA)coffee stouts out there. Hoping bottles come soon because that coffee isn't going to taste any fresher than it does now.

    Went to pick up my woodshop bottles a while back and wad told that raised eyebrows batch 2, is coming up next. I happy to see a thread about this place, but sort of wish it was kept a secret.

    Also sun soaked with citrus is freaking awesome on tap.

    I stopped quickly last night to retrieve my Sun Soaked bottles but the tap list is so good right now I'll probably be back tomorrow or Saturday night for a longer session.

    Had the GJG, woah that is good. Wonderful high toned acid and just loads of fresh coffee. Really good.

    GJG was on point last night. So much coffee, so rich.

    I also enjoyed Neighborhood, while my buddies described it as "Fanta-like".

    So, building on a tidbit I heard earlier in the day, it's not 100% yet, no leases have been signed, but an LOI has been provided by HPB for a space across from Not a Cornfield, formally known as Los Angeles State Historic Park. Really close to the Chinatown Gold Line Station.

Refreshing, complex, and gushing with citrus fruit characteristics. 5.3% abv.
