Bars that serve Chimay Gold

I see Red and Blue label Chimay at a lot of bars these days. Who's got the Grande Reserve chilled and waiting for me? Hollywood-area or Westwood-area would be a huge plus. I know 3rd Stop carries Chimay White (Cinq Cent) but I'm looking for the Gold label stuff.

    1. The Old Town Pub (Pasadena) and Lucky Baldwins as local beer/ale palaces came to mind; Crown City Brewery only shows red label... true, not the westside, but here's more... maybe the The Bowery?
      scroll down to the comments/responses to his main post for a number of possibilities

      1. The gold is only bottled, right? Have you checked out The Daily Pint? Great bar, I think they only have one type of Chimay on tap (white, IIRC), but I am told they have a massive selection of bottled beer. Even if they don't have Chimay gold, it's worth a trip anyway.

          I was gonna suggest The Pint. Not sure if they have it, but they are a place that should and would.

            The Pint is my favorite dive-y bar in LA. Great selection of beers.

        2. The Other Room in Venice usually has it.

              third. dog friendly, too.

              no food, but abbot's pizza isn't too far..

                You can have food delivered from anywhere on Abbot Kinney. The Other Room even employs a "runner" of sorts, who will pick you up a couple of slices of pizza from Abbot's, a sandwich from Stroh's or a few tacos/nachos/quesadillas from Tortilla Grill. I never use the service since I usually go there after I've eaten but it's extremely handy.

                  The Other Room on Abbot Kinney - they even serve it in a cool glass with the name on it. WORD OF CAUTION: THE BAR IS SUPER LOUD. After you have a glass, head west down two blocks to Lilly's (I think that's the name) for a nice mellow restaurant. Or do in reverse. :)

                    At the back end of the bar is an elevated lounge, much much quieter than the bar area. Weekends are super busy and it takes forever to get a drink at the bar, at least the lounge area has table service.

                    Get OUT! That is a really, really smart policy...
