Pubs in Venice/Marina del Rey
Venerable old pub under new ownership and now serving decent beer. First and third Thursdays they have turtle racing.
Brewpub and taproom for the Firestone Walker brewery. Opening hours will be expanding in May.
Neighborhood Bar & Grill just off the beach in Venice.
Industrial chic interior, all concrete and steel.
Restaurant on the marina with a great view of the boats. Also a sports bar with lots of big TVs. Surprisingly good beer list for this type of place. Quarterly themed beer dinners.
Right on the Venice boardwalk with a great ocean view. Mostly West Coast beers with local breweries represented. Inside is small but this is LA, there is a heated patio. Taster flights available.
Washington Ale House
Dive bar and sports bar that was formerly Sports Harbor.
Fairly small bar in the beer and wine department.
Despite the German name, there are more (and more interesting) Belgian beers here. Food is just sausages, from ordinary (bratwurst, Italian) to exotic (Rattlesnake & Rabbit, Crocodile and Pork, etc). This is their second location, after the original in Downtown LA.
Sports bar chain with wide beer selection.
