    greetings beer geeks,

    I have a buddy that's going to a wedding in Santa Monica in a few weeks, staying in orange county and has a couple days to do a little exploring. Wanted to see what everyone's 3 favorite spots were to get a great beer. Just saw Beachwood BBQ in Long Beach and that's definitely the kind of place I'm looking to recommend- bars, beer gardens, tap rooms and breweries apply too.

    Also, wondered if anyone was able to get Firestone's last batch of Vintage DDBA, and if anyone's tried it- I don't want to miss out if it's phenomenal like always.

    And, hitting up Cellarmaker this weekend for the first time. Can't wait for that.

    This is running list a made a while ago:

    Here is a google map I just made of breweries in Los Angeles and Orange County. I made it editable so anyone can add things. Lots of great breweries with nice tap rooms and some with restaurants.

    https://mapsengine.google.com/map/ed...k.kNfia9-kxjK8

    Amazing beer bars I really like are

    Mohawk Bend - Echo Park, owned by Tony Yanow os Golden Road and features lots of great food and over 70 taps, all CA except for a small set for an out of state guest beach month as well all all CA spirits)
    http://mohawk.la/

    Tony's Darts Away - Burbank, also run Yanow but a smaller sausage bar, still all CA - beer and wine only
    http://tonysda.com/

    Surly Goat - West Hollywood, full bar, great tap selection, rare bottles, no food
    http://www.surlygoat.com/

    Verdugo Bar - Glassell Park, same owners as Surly Goat, same idea too but they have a big outdoor patio and often have a food truck
    http://www.verdugobar.com/

    Little Bear - Downtown L.A. Arts District, another from the same owners as above, but all Belgian and Belgian style beers, and really, really good food.
    http://littlebearla.com/

    Far Bar - Downtown L.A. Little Tokyo, really unique craft tap list that usually has weird Japanese beers, really extensive whisky list, really eclectic food menu

    Smog City's coffee porter was pretty fucking delicious. Had a hard time differentiating whether it was actually a coffee or a beer. Very interesting.

    My parents went to MN and brought me back a 4 pack of Surly Furious. This IPA is delicious! Super earthy and spicy, and a great dank smell that lingers and doesn't dissipate. My parents don't drink beer so I think I got lucky and they just happened to grab one of the fresher packs. If they all taste like this, well, then I have to get to Minneapolis sometime in the near future.
