Where we've featured it
Not counting the bottom shelf of my fridge, there are very few places as committed to hard-to-find beer as Glendale Tap, the dive bar that’s turned into one of the best craft beer shops in town during COVID. Each time I stop by, they have a new set of incredible beers I’ve never seen before in LA, like hazy IPAs from Equilibrium, sours from De Garde, and barrel-aged stouts from Anchorage Brewing. If those don’t mean anything to you, trust me when I say that list will make any beer nerd’s head explode. For Thanksgiving, I picked up a bottle of De Garde’s Ivy, a wild ale aged on spruce pine tips for two years, and it was among the best beers I’ve had this year. This bar will also continue to host vendors serving food to-go, even with the new stay-at-home order, including some of our favorite pop-ups in the city, like Kuya Lord, Bootleg Pizza, and Uncle Johnny’s Burgers.
They’ve got 52 taps of craft beer from around the globe and free peanuts (the hallmark of any good bar), and while they’re not explicitly a sports bar, they do have a couple screens that will be showing games on Sunday.
