America's Best Beer Bars

Slide 16 of 17

Verdugo, Los Angeles

The bar’s 22 taps feature craft beer bar standbys like the potent, lightly spiced Delirium Tremens as well as more obscure brews like Firestone Walker’s Unfiltered Double Barrel Ale, an unpasteurized amber ale aged in toasted oak barrels. The restored 1930s bar is decked out in Art Deco style, with a rotating DJ lineup spinning a variety of music, from retro soul classics to reggae. A rotating lineup of food trucks parks outside to sell delicious snacks.
