Sunset Beer Company in Echo Park is the perfect hideaway for any local beer connoisseur. Located on Sunset Boulevard, this small, casual spot is part lounge, part bar and part store. Patrons can order beer on tap at the bar, or select from over 700 bottled craft beers (and wines) to take home – or better yet, enjoy in-store with a $2 corkage fee. Visitors can then sit in the outdoor patio area or in the lounge, which boasts a cozy fireplace, leather chairs, wooden benches and a bookshelf lined with books, magazines and an assortment of board games. Beers on tap range in price and style, but are almost always of the local or national craft beer variety. Customers tend to be young and engaging, and the annual Mug Club lets frequenters keep their own glass at the bar for use whenever they come through.
