Golden Road Brewing

bar - restaurant - vegan

When we first moved to Los Angeles, Abe and I really couldn’t understand why there wasn’t a Beer Garden like the one we had in Astoria – I don’t even drink alcohol, but I do miss getting together with friends on a beautiful afternoon and hanging around a picnic table.

Today we discovered there IS a place, thanks to the birthday girl, Emily!

Golden Road is in Glendale, right by the railroad tracks.  It’s a brewery (we brought their beer from Whole Foods to yesterday’s BBQ)…

…and also a restaurant.

Similar to Tony Yanow’s Mohawk Bend + Tony’s Darts Away, the winning combo is booze…

…fun…

I had several sweet potato tater tots dipped in honey mustard…

…a few hunks of Bavarian Pretzel, dipped in Pimento “Cheese”…

…and a whole bunch of Abe’s french fries.

I ordered the Vegan Oreo Cheesecake…

…which was good, but teeny.

Saved one last bite for Abe…

…no Crumbs cupcakes

…or beer, obviously.

The Pub at Golden Road Brewing on Urbanspoon

    I love that place! I like to go after work sometimes for a Grilled Cheese (which is so good) and their “Point the Way IPA”!

      I was eyeing the grilled cheese! At least, the one on the kiddies menu…

    How come you don’t drink? For health reasons or you just don’t like it?

    Lynn, this brewery has been number one on my to do list since I arrived! I went to a brewery in Austin and my inner monologue was “this is awesome, but get to golden road, get to golden road!”

  • Brigid

    I really want to take X there. He loves beer, and we really enjoy Tony’s other two establishments.

    The “Why is there no LA equivalent to the Beer Garden in Astoria” question is something I asked myself daily until this weekend! I used to live across the street from there, and spend many a fun Tuesday night drinking pilsener with my Greek and Eastern European neighbors.
    I also wonder if there’s an equivalent to Crif Dogs, with the Ms. Pacman and the tater tots. My favorite from Golden Road’s menu was the big pretzel!
