Restaurant w/ Great Beer Menu
My brother in law is coming into town from Ohio and he is a beer distributer. I am looking for a great restaurant that has an excellent craft beer menu. So far I have thought about:
We live in Encino and don't want to go too far away. We don't want a place that is too casual just somewhere fun that has great food.
Any help is appreciated. TIA!
Father's Office Bar
1618 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, CA
unfortunately the place i'd recommend is downtown... perhaps too far, but.... beer and 'dogs.
Yardhouse in SaMo
Library Alehouse in SaMo
Good in Silverlake
Manhattan Beach Brewing Co
I'm sure Lucky Baldwin's in Pasadena is too casual...
2911 Main St, Santa Monica, CA 90405
17 S Raymond Ave, Pasadena, CA 91105
Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks has a decent selection, but it's not going to match gastropubs like Father's or Library. If you get a chance check out the lounge Verdugo out near Eagle Rock. Terrific beers, including Pliny the Elder! don't let the sketch hood scare you off ;)
13539 Ventura Blvd, Sherman Oaks, CA 91423
The Verdugo Bar
3408 Verdugo Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90065
