Visited The Daily Pint on the 4th of July. Was somewhat worried it might be too crowded, but at 2PM there were only about 6 other people there besides me and my bf.
Great atmosphere. Totally feels like a hole in-the-wall neighborhood bar, but with an exceptional tap list. Sat at the bar and got great service. The bartender was friendly and attentive. I have heard that this place gets crowded on the weekends, so I cannot argue for the service or atmosphere at these times.
Over twelve beers on tap to choose from, ranging from more common beers like Boddington's, to two different Stone beers on cask.
I had a pint of Stone IPA with Simcoe & Amarillo hops on cask, which was quite tasty. Also had a pint of Chimay Blonde on tap, which I've never seen before, very delicious. Each of my pints was decently priced at $7.
Unfortunately this place does not serve food, but only sells snacks like corn nuts and bags of chips.
Overall, definitely a bar I'd go back to for both the beer selection and the atmosphere.

This is my go to spot when I want to get my shuffleboard on (best table in the L.A. area). Then of course there's the whiskey selection ... best in the L.A. area as well.
But we're here to talk about beer. Very good selection. Several taps, always something interesting available (I popped my Younger cherry here a couple of years ago). Standouts tend to be the cask offerings (usually at least two Stone offerings you'll have trouble finding anywhere else). Pours are good but pricey ($7-8 for the quality stuff) and the bartenders are nice enough.
This is a great place to watch the game (or play Jenga). Definitely one of my favorite bars in LA/SM.

It Definatly has a dive bar feel, but that's kind of bar I like. The place was not the most clean place, but hey it's a dive bar. It has an awsome tap selection and a few on cask. A lot in bottle as well. The stone Porter with vanilla beans is fucking awsome. La folie and black butte xxi was on tap as well. It has a huge wHiskey selection, but I am not a fan. The only down fall is the price; It is a bit pricey. We had 4 beers with a na drink for 40 bucks. Now that I think about it's damn expensive. But I guess it's cool for awsome beers

This is my new local. The Pint has gone through some changes as of late with some remodeling to make it more of a sports bar than a pub. That said, it still retains its original character. The Draft selection consisting of over 30 taps is one of the best on the west side rivaled only by Fathers Office or Naja's. This includes a number in European brews like Chimay, Fullers, Hogaarden etc. and some Micros like Anderson Valley, Stone IPA, and Hobgoblin. Where the Pint really shines is its Bottle selection. There are over 150 available with a consistent rotation of high quality brews. Overall, I would say that they have the best selection on the west side. This doesn't account for the vast selection of single malt Scotch or Tequila.
Another thing I like about the Pint is its atmosphere and service. The bartenders are friendly and work hard to make sure everyone is served. There is Pool, Foosball, and Shuffleboard behind the bar for those interested, though they have lost the Dartboard with the recent installation of the Projection Bigscreen. Other "upgrades" include cushy lowbacked barstools, bar height tables, and more TV screens with enough tuners to carry every NFL game on Sundays. Regulars are definitely treated well and newcomers are also welcome. The crowd ranges from SMC and UCLA students to older forty somethings that have been there for years.
The vibe is low key and it isn't uncommon to see some Hollywood types trying to get away from it all (I ain't dropping names). Overall the Daily Pint is a friendly neighborhood place with an excellent beer selection and friendly service. Definitely a place worth checking out.

Excellent selection of beer on tap with a lot more in bottles along with a large selection of hard liquor including ~150 single malts. The draught beers are not as microbrew centric as I was led to believe, but the selection of English/UK and Belgian beers is quite good.
Prices vary, but I've bought most of their draught beers elsewhere for 1 to 2 dollars less. While I didn't buy any of the bottled beer, it seemed to be priced significantly higher than if you purchased it at a store.
Still, if you are in the area, I recommend that you check it out.

Depending on your personal palate for great brew, the pint delivers! A rather wide selection to chose from, as most styles are represented, a quick moving rotation is always up on the chalk board across from the bar.
The most cask ales(4) and bourbon(lots) available to chose from every day of any westside/santa monica stop. A must stop for the beer loving novice or aficionado!... darts, shuffle board, pool, tv's for game days, I always have a good time stopping in here.
Events from time to time,bourbon, whiskey,& single malt tastings, pint nights, etc., a locals favorite pub!
Ask the bartender whats new on tap, you most likely will find something you've been wanting to try available at the pint.

I wish everyone was as lucky as I and had as fine a beer (and Scotch if you're so inclined!) establishment as this just a few blocks from work. Great selection and the staff is very helpful - tell them what you like and they'll gladly point you to something in their selection that will please. (For me this was Victory Golden Monkey.) There are over a dozen taps with a rotating selection of imports and craft brews. They even have a few casks - Oaked Double Bastard FTW! They also have a vast supply of bottles but I haven't ventured past the taps yet.
The decor is nothing to write home about unless the folks at home like a simple bar with a great selection and knowledgeable staff. No food either but food would only get in the way of the drinking.
Did I mention that I love this place? If you find yourself in Santa Monica and want a quality beer-drinking experience you can't go wrong with The Daily Pint.

Great beer and Great people. I love this place. I live a few blocks away and I could walk here when I want a good beer (I know lucky me). Never have I ran into a problem with the staff here. If you like a beer they have it or have something you will love just as much. A place that must be checked out if you are in the area.
Only thing I would recommend is heading over early on the weekends especially Fridays. Friday nights it gets over ran with hipsters. Fridays it gets a bit overcrowded. Friday's late afternoons they will have stuff you can snack on for free which is always welcomed.

Decent bar with a very good selection of beer and single malt Scotch. Hopefully you won't have the displeasure of meeting the owner. He really is a horrible person...not at all suited to a career in the hospitality industry... Otherwise the place gets a good mix of people and is really the only thing in that neighborhood...
