  1. Bugers and Beer.. First things that pops into my head? Father's Office. Course they only have 1 type of burger so it's more "Burger and Beer", not "Burgers and Beer".

    Father's Office Bar
    1618 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, CA

      In the opinions of many, the Helms Ave. FO near Culver City has much better service and less crowding.

        Definitely Culver City FO is the easier alternative. "burger and BEERSZES!" Always a nice selection on tap and bottles as well. Go early and you'll have your pick of tables.

          And freeway convenient!

          Okay, so maybe I want to keep Montana F.O. . for the locals

      2. I've been dying to try blue Dog Tavern in Sherman Oaks. And it depends on where yor priority lies: great burger or great election of beer. I hear the Tavern has both.

          Just an update. Got a chance to grab a late lunch at Blue Dog Tavern today. It has a large but not overwhelming selection of beers, with about 10 taps, all different styles of beer and none of the usual suspects. Also about 8 different types of burgers, with interesting combinations. I ordered the Blue Dog, which had mushrooms, thick sliced bacon, swiss and caramelized onions. Burger was cooked to order, hot, juicy and tasty. On a grilled bun, with a side of their house root beer bbq sauce, which was really tasty with the fries. The fries were also very good, skin on, thick cut, crispy but soft on the inside, but a tad underseasoned for me. I'd definitely go back.

          They are on Saugus Street, where the 405 & 101 meet. Here's a pic of the burger:
