Browse Our Recommended Pubs

Our pubs must serve good beer. We don't care how it is served -- cask, keg, bottled are all fine so long as the pub serves Good Beer from interesting breweries. But the pub also needs to have a little something extra, be it an outstanding selection, stunning architecture, an amazing ambience or excellent food. But first and most of all it must have good beer. 

All the pubs on this guide are worthy of a visit. A few have been singled out for special attention -- those ones are worth a special effort to visit.

Most of listed pubs are on the west side of Los Angeles County -- that is where the author lives and where he drinks beer.

Since one should not drive when enjoying beer, there are links on each pub's pages to nearby bus lines. Or you can see an overview of bus options here. You can also see pubs along the beach bike path.
