1 to Try – Kings Row Gastropub

I have not been to many of the new L.A. area craft beer locales that I have been meaning to check out. I am speaking of Kings Row Pub in Pasadena as well as Certified Market which was mentioned earlier this month….

If anyone out on the interwebs can give me a review of either place, I would heartily appreciate it! Kings Row seems to be doing a heckuva lot of events with good people like Firestone-Walker and Eagle Rock Brewery.

  1. In my view, Kings Row Gastropub is a perfect fit for Old Town Pasadena. It is a “noted house for fine food and ales” but that tagline merely scratches the surface. It’s a place where the confluence of past and present merge, where Millennials and Baby Boomers easily interact in an understated yet warm interior, where thoughtful, handcrafted food, beer, and (what I enjoy the most) its people join as one. Since I patronize this Gastropub often, I get the feeling that they hesitate to categorize their food as gourmet, fearing the high price stereotype, but their food is crafted like the microbrews they feature. It is tastebud-bending delicious and imaginative.

    They’re pretty serious about their beer, too. They have their own Certified Cicerone on staff who can exhort the art of beer tasting, culture, and flavors to anyone who asks – like me. Kings Row is interested – truly interested – in exposing you (me) to the finest, educating us in the process, all the while having fun doing it.

  2. I enjoyed my visit too. I liked the atmosphere and it seems hidden from the hustle and bustle, which I like. (Though the bathroom is also pretty hidden)
    They had a nice selection of Hangar 24 beers on my first visit which was cool.
