Chef Sang Yoon, the “father” of Father’s Office, has been serving gourmet grub and craft brews long before gastropubs began popping up on every city block. Since then, his Culver City outpost has expanded to include 37 draft beers, of primarily domestic brews with a smattering from Belgium. There’s a full dinner menu but a must is the cult-favorite Office Burger—there are no substitutions, period—made of rare beef topped with caramelized onion, applewood bacon compote, gruyere, Maytag blue cheese and arugula. Pair with a full bar’s selection of wines, a fine list of classic cocktails and, of course, a not-to-miss selection of beer that keeps the diehard beer drinkers coming back.
L.A.’s cocktail game is still supreme, but with new breweries pouring into town, craft beer continues to have a serious moment. Beer-centric gastropubs, breweries and gartens are popping up left and right, putting micro-beer in the spotlight. Whether you’re seeking an in-your-face local IPA or international sudsifaction, L.A.’s microbrew gems are in it for the long haul. From dive bars to beer gadens, here are the city’s best beer bars to check out now.
