  • Came for the beer and the Lost Abbey didn't disappoint ! We had some peanuts with us that we shared while sitting at the bar and enjoyed a few sampler sized 4 oz pours. The samples ranged in price fro...  more »

  • When going to this Lost Abbey / Port Brewing location you don't get a super swanky upscale tasting room experience, but you get a bunch of very good beer. Lost Abbey's Belgian inspired creations are out of this world. Don't get me wrong, the place is cool with barrel tables, a long bar and cool employees, but you are sitting in a working brewery.....so not a bunch of plants and fancy stuff, just many great LA / Port creations. Note....if you are going to sample Lost Abbey stuff you might want to use Uber. The three special releases we sampled last night were a 14% alcohol.
  • Industrial, but good brews. Wipeout nice IPA. St. Archer also here
  • These guys know what they're doing. Not the same ol' same ol' brew that you see everywhere nowadays. Good stuff.
  • Don't expect to find this place. It's hidden and they don't believe in signs. Lame!
  • Bad service. Beers are unimpressive and wayy overpriced. Do yourself a favor and go to one of the many other local breweries.
