There's a new Slater's 50/50 opening next week in Lake Forest with "over 100 craft, domestic and imported beers" on tap. I've never been to one so not sure their usual M.O. for craft beers but I'll be checking it out for sure.

The Press in Claremont has Heavenly Hefeweizen from Craftsman Brewing Company on tap. Back Abbey down the street are good too.

Slaters has a really nice selection at the one in HB, so I am sure you will be pleased! Design your own burger is awesome too..

I enjoy the Belmont Brewing Co., right on the Belmont Pier in Long Beach. Nice restaurant with al fresco dining and tasty brews (my favorites are the Top Sail and Strawberry Blonde Ales). The Strawberry Blonde is available at some of the local markets in town as well (22 oz bottle).

Select Beer in Redondo is a nice little husband and wife place, usually have 8-12 crafts on tap. They've also got the left wall full of refrigerated beers and some more on the shelves on the opposite side of the room. Recently went there for release of Drake's Hopocalypse and that was a great time

I just had my first golden road beer; it was the point the way IPA. I have to say, that is one of the worst IPA's I've ever had. It drinks more like an Amber ale. There is virtually no hop complexity and the malt character is featured most. IMHO, IPAs should be a hop forward beer and designed around them. This thing lacks...just my .02

It's almost too easy to find good craft beers now...they're so common at a lot of places that beer selections aren't the draw.

Just offering my opinion because Golden Road was mentioned in this thread (which is not the recommend a beer thread). It wasn't meant to trash the beer, I just don't see how they can call it an IPA. Sorry if I offended...
