Finally Los Angeles has a respectable beer destination, will never go to Father's Office again if I can help it with this place around, I stopped here for the first time yesterday right when they opened after it being recommended by Gabe at Beachwood BBQ, it was kind of pain to park but I found some free parking by the car dealership after searching for a few minutes, in a cool area with the stars on the concrete and all that jazz, anyways I walked in adn went straight to the bar, atmosphere was cool with some old tap handles lining the wall and a somewhat dark backdrop, the place was very clean, the menus were visible, food looked good but I did not try it because I was kind of in a hurry, they had printed wine and bottle lists, great quality, I was stoked to see that Parabola was still around, it was nine dollars for a small snifter, the most expensive beer there but also the best hands down, other tap beer standouts were Lost Coast Java Porter, Moylan's Hopsickle, Rodenbach Grand Cru, Hair of the Dog Fred, Bruery Black Orchard, Victory Fest Bier, Ola Dubh 30, a couple other Firestone brews, and Stone Smoked Porter will Vanilla Bean on cask was very tempting as well, prices ranged from six to nine dollars which is very fair for this area, bottle list consisted of Duvel, St. Bernardus, Delerium Tremens, Orval, Westmalle, Chimay, Firestone, even the 11, Unibroue, Bitburger, Hair of the Dog, Fantome, and Allagash, prices range from five to forty on these, the owner Brian said they plan on tripling their bottle list this year, by the way he is a really cool guy and even offered me a free pint but I was already feeling that Parabola, so I passed and went and grabbed a quick bite to eat down the street, will definitely be going back soon, especially when Firestone sends them that Bravo Brown keg, get to this place as soon as you possibly can

Excellent fresh selection of beers.
the regular bartender there could be a bit more knowledgeable and engaging, but I can deal with that when the beer selection is top notch.
Their burger is great, all the rest of the food is just ok.
Price is reasonable considering the area.

This is a dive bar with good beer. It was very dark and there was a Dodger game playing on both of the TV monitors. The venue was not advertised as a sports bar, so I was disappointed that my conversation with my company was repeatedly interrupted with cheering and game-related shouting. The picture on their website lead me to believe there would be nice lighting, but it was just dark and grungy.
Everyone at my table was dissapointed in their food, which tended to be overly salty. The onion rings were gross. No one finished their plate or asked for a doggy bag. Sure it was cheap, but
There were maybe two dozen beers on tap. I had only heard of a half dozen of the beers on the menu, which was awesome. Considering that everyone drives in LA (including me), I was surprised that there was not a single session beer (below 5% abv.) on the menu (hence the 4 and not 5 star rating on selection).

Went here for the 5th Anniversary Party. The place was awesome! Beer heaven. Tap list was insame with piles of hard to find beers!
Atmosphere is great. Simple Vibe. Low Key
Quality is outstanding. Some great food and huge list of beer. Seasonal food and daily specials are great.
Service hawas great. waitresses are usually helpful and knowledgable.
Selection is outstanding. One of the largest tap lists I've seen at an establishment before.
Food is great. I have trouble staying away from the truffle burger. One of the best I've ever had. Especially when paired with the great beer.

I was out in LA for a few days and knew from research that this was a place I should visit. Luckily our hotel was quite close so we were able to go twice during our three day stay. Also lucky for us, one of those days was a tap takeover (Dogfish Head).
On our first trip, I noted the 24 taps that others have mentioned. What I really liked was that there are two digital boards that list the beers with a coordinating number. You wouldn't think much of it, but it actually makes ordering very easy if for instance the bar is very noisy. Instead of throwing out a long name, you can simply ask for number 12, or number 5. Pretty convenient.
I stopped in specifically for the Indra Kunindra that I had scoped on their website (it's a favorite of mine, particularly on tap). But I was pleasantly surprised by a very cheerful and knowledgeable bartender who was more than happy to help me out with selection #2. Turns out, he pointed me in the direction of a beer I'd never heard of, never tried, and ended up being amazingly tasty...my opinion of course. He pointed me to Noble Ale Works' Naughty Sauce. Amazing.
Night two we were treated to a Dogfish Head tap takeover. All 24. Also amazing. Had some really interesting offerings from Dogfish that I'd never even heard of.
There seems to be plenty of room here, didn't seem too noisy and the bartenders seemed to know their stuff and are fans of beers. All of this combines to make it a "must hit" if you're in LA. I'll definitely revisit next time I'm out there.xt
