Where to go in LA

OK folks, this is where the rubber meets the road here in Los Angeles. Whether you are a visitor to the City of Angels, a transplant (like me) or a native Angeleno, this is where you find the best beer in the Southland. It is a long list that I hope grows longer and I have been to every last one of these places and can vouch to their craft credentials.

First we start with straight-up bars, no food, just great beer…
Verdugo (Glassell Park)
The Surly Goat (West Hollywood)
The Glendale Tap (Glendale)
The Daily Pint (Santa Monica)

…then we move on to locales with beer and food…
Blue Palms Brewhouse (Hollywood)
The Hermosillo (Highland Park)
Mohawk Bend (Echo Park)
Library Alehouse (Santa Monica)
Tony’s Darts Away (Burbank)
38 Degrees Alehouse (Alhambra)
Public School 612 (Downtown & Culver City)
