Redwood Bar and Grill
Just having Stone IPA on tap raises anything in Los Angeles to the upper echelon of beer bars even if slowly more and more I'm seeing places catch on to better beers. They also had a couple Craftsman and some better Germans amongst others. The pirate theme of it all is not subtle, but nor is it irritating. The staff were very pleasant, making sure our party was kept happy.
The food was decent. The menu said about the hamburger being the "best in town" or some other sweeping accolade. It wasn't but it was good.
Good friends, good food, good beer and the Red Sox game on? Can't beat that.
