    Twenty or so craft beers for about $6 to $8 each. Tasty and great service as well.

    Andy Davidson · January 2

    Apparently one of the few places to get "Pliny the Elder " on tap.

    Lots of fun. One of the few places around the area that generally doesn't have a line to get in.

    This feels like a terrible college bar, because it is a terrible college bar.

    Like most anywhere these days, craft beer is hot in Los Angeles, and the Surly Goat gets props for its 27 taps, central location and playful feel. Read more

    Closes place that's like back home. NY/LES I miss you. But this place has a great beer selection on tap and Toxic Avenger on the TV. Lol

    This place is good for pretty girls and gay guys.. So basically fun for everyone. The bar is tough to get a drink so plan 2 at a time and grab a seat in the back

    Tap list is great, bottle list is too! bar staff know what they are talking about. Unfortunately no food, but hey, can't have everything!

    One of the best beer selections in Los Angeles. Great aesthetic, affordable prices -- a great spot to check out if you're in West Hollywood.

    John Cassillo · August 23, 2013
  • LeAnne G.

    While there is a great selection of beer - please don't expect decent service. The bar staff is SLOW and not exactly friendly, although they are knowledgeable about their products.

    Very goaty

    The bartenders are usually pretty cool about letting you taste any beer you want, so take advantage and try one or two before picking. Read more

    Can you say FRAUD? I went there on Sat night and I was just informed that all of the credit card numbers were ripped off (or sold). Now my bank accounts are locked. Thanks for ruining my day.

    Don't overlook the beer fridge it's crazy good. Be sure to taste a beer before buying a glass, they won't let you change a beer if you don't like it.

    Mark Williams · September 13, 2011
  • Mark W.

    Don't overlook the bottles in the fridge, there are some rare beers that are worth the money.
