Party Earth Sunset Beer Company Review

The Scene

Sunset Beer Company in LA's Echo Park is a cozy bar/store with hundreds of craft beers & a chill vibe. Check out this Los Angeles beer mecca on Party Earth.

For those who dream of being able to drink several hundred craft beers in the comfort of their own homes, Sunset Beer Company may be the next best thing.

Tucked in the corner of a small strip mall, this half store/half beer bar has the cozy vibe of a living room juxtaposed with an overwhelming drink selection.

The entrance opens into the store section, where a cooler-lined wall showcases over three hundred different brews, and nearby tables display recommendations and special forty-ounce selections.

During the day, local hops snobs and young hipsters mill about the space, often staying longer than planned as the staff keeps the latest seasonal offerings coming.

Relaxed couples and casual groups of friends drop by later, making their way to an adjoining tasting room where they settle in on long couches in front of the tables by an open fireplace. Though the bar in back only features six taps with a rotating selection and a handful of wines by the glass, the rest of the store’s brews can be enjoyed on site for a small fee.

Outside food is welcome, and Friday and Saturday nights usually see food trucks pulling up out front, so guests can coat their stomachs as they work through the lengthy drinks menu.

A chill den that makes a night out feel like the best night in, Sunset Beer Company is a great spot for patrons to pregame, cool off, or just stock up for the weekend.

Tip from Jonah:

Beer geeks will love the selection of reserve beers ranging from $20 to $40 per bottle, which can include rare gems like an ’05 Alaskan Smoked Porter. Move fast, though, they change out very quickly!

All right beer junkies, this place is for you. With over 250 bottled beers to choose from, such as Anita Purple Haze to Einstok, a white ale from Iceland to even, this half store, half bar serves almost anything to quench your thirst. The best part about this spot? Sunset serves 12 oz. singles of nearly all the beers they sell, meaning you do not need to waste your money again by purchasing a 6 pack. You're also welcome to mix and match beers to create your own ideal 6 pack. How great is that? While there is no food served here, people are welcome to bring their own. This cozy, neighborhood spot is perfect for date night, catching up with friends, or just stocking up your beer-less refrigerator. Personally, I am not a huge beer drinker, but I love coming here with my boyfriend here for a relaxed night. With the Dodgers stadium close by, it is also the perfect place to chill after a game.
Love everything....except the dog UN-friendly patio.

Basically half store, half chill little bar. Phenomenal selection of beer in the fridges, mostly stuff you have never heard of. You can drink it there for a small corkage fee or take it to go. They also have this cool little bar in the next room, serving up a handful of great drafts at decent prices, which you can enjoy on a tidy collection of nice couches or sneak out to the equally tiny patio which (since you have to enter to store to get to it) doesn’t allow dogs. That’s kind of week, but that’s more LA Health Department than them so I can’t blame ‘em, but it takes away from the place for me. Anywhoo, very chill spot. Classically hipster, of course. Every time I go some dude with a handlebar starts giving me the lowdown on whatever I am drinking. Doesn’t bother me too much, beer is damn good. I would call this a hidden gem. A hidden, dog-hating, gem.
