Good stuff is really starting to happen in the Los Angeles (and surrounding area) beer scene. One of those places is in the works right now. Tony’s Darts Away on Magnolia in Burbank is well on its way to opening. The full-on opening is a month or so away, but I encourage those of us who are in the L.A. area to start amassing the troops and spreading the news about the opening of this place.
Let me tell you that they have some info on their site already and are exclusively focusing on California craft beer. Too often I’ve seen places that claim 200 taps–but when you get there they’ve got commonplace stuff and very little room for personal decision, and one of the first casualties these establishments is local/area craft beer (instead, Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat is on tap); no local stouts, only national ones, can be found.
California has some great breweries and some terrific beers. It’s with this in mind that I commend Tony’s to you, especially those of you who are locally minded. Let’s shore up the foundations of California beer by supporting this place when it opens. Spread the word and your arms…get some brew at Tony’s. Have a look at the beer list.
