Discovering What the Locals are Sipping in Santa Monica, CA
Strictly for serious appreciators of suds, the alluring Library Alehouse is a locale for the locally brewed. Thirsting for a pint of creamy North Coast Old Rasputin Imperial Stout or bitter Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale? In the mood for a cozy, neighborhood bar minus the big city self-importance? Then this is your joint. Show up early to avoid the crowds. Stake out a spot at the candlelit bar or grab a table on the inviting back patio to enjoy a locally grown, organic baby beet salad with arugula and light as air ricotta. Show up often enough for happy hour and you just might make a few friends—you won’t find a more affable (or quaffable) crew within county lines.
