Decent. At best. – Lots of odd people here. I dont care for the karoke, or comedy stuff. But I do like the sports sections. I guess I just haven't had the best of experiences here with their beer either.
Their beer is -decent- and cheap. But any normal commercial beer they jack prices WAY up. I should also say, stay away from their in-house Santa Cruz dark beer; it's HORRIBLE (and I love dark beer) -- Brew Co please start carrying GUINESS!
Not bad, better than Barneys! – This place is pretty average. Decent food, affordable beer,good vibe. I am a Karaoke fan so I try a lot of them out, this one was pretty good with a massive song selection.
Horrible – went in a few weeks ago despite terrible reviews. I always think places deserve a chance despite some bade reviews. I went in with 6 people and it was so awkward. Not only was our service....one bartender...slooow all the food was cold and fit only for drunks. STAY AWAY!
Worst Service... EVER – we brought 40 people here for a senior graduation dinner. three hours later I had one beer, and no food. We even called in advance to let them know we would have this large party. Might be the worst service I've ever experienced. I can't imagine a scenario I would eat here again.
ALL DRINKS $4.50!!! – Wow, Brew Co made some awesome changes for the new year. All the drinks are $4.50! They got a ton of new beers on tap, some with like 8% alcohol by volume and $4.50 long islands! The food got better too. No more bbq menu, it's now standard bar food like wings and salads. Karaoke is still crazy cool on Thursday and Friday nights. Very big selection and great crowd. I also heard that they are going to do it on Mondays too which is great cuz I'm always looking for something to do on a Monday night.
Was it Alpo or was it Chili? – I ordered a bowl of chili and received a red pasty mush floating on a thin film of grease. No beans, no meat, just paste. Literally speaking, I wouldn't have fed it to a dog. Next time I'm in the Westwood Village I'll go to Chili's.
Felt Rejected – I used to work at the BrewCo years and years ago as a bartender. I was in town for the Jack Johnson concert and was excited to take my group to dinner and show them where I worked. We had a group of 8 and when I walked in there was no hostess. After standing around for some time waiting for someone to sit us, welcome us...acknowledge us in any way, I went to the bar to ask what we should do. I told the bartender I had a group of 8 for dinner and drinks before the concert and he said we could sit anywhere (there were no tables set up for 8) but that there was only one server so we probably wouldn't get good service. Of course, we decided to leave. While I appreciated the bartender's honesty (I would have been more annoyed if we wasted time), I was really disappointed. I would think they would staff up when there's a big concert in town. They definitely missed out on a lot of business. We ended up spending a fortune at Chilis around the corner.
Mediocre Food and Less Than Stellar Service – I hadn't been back to this place for a long time, and it may be a while before I return (if i ever do). The food has never been great here - it's really a place to drink, hang out, eat fried appetizers and watch games. What was most disappointing was the odd service we got last night .. first it started off on a good note with our first bartender - she was friendly and fun and efficient. Then it started going downhill after that. We noticed that all the food coming out was being delivered to the group sitted right next to us at the bar - for a second I suspected that some of our food was there, but when they took the food, I presumed I was mistaken (since most normal people would say "hey, i didn't order that")... then after about 10 minutes (after I saw them already eat some of the food), they acknowledged that the food wasn't theirs. What was astonishing was that the 2nd bartender then tried to give us the food. I of course said we didn't want it - he glared at me and said, "you don't want your food?" - I said I certainly didn't want the food that some strangers already touched, and that we wanted fresh platters. He looked at me like I was being totally unreasonable, but complied. Then to make matters worse, my friends' orders started coming out of the kitchen, they would literally walk by us and start asking everyone else at the bar if the order was theirs. When we had to call them back (a bit annoyed), the bartender was defensive and said that they didn't know who ordered what so we couldn't blame them. I guess it's true I can't blame the staff personally if they truly can't figure out who ordered what, even though there were only about 10 people sitted at the bar - but I am perfectly willing to blame the establishment for faulty training and management techniques. All in all, we already accepted the fact that the food would just be mediocre, but then to top it off with defensive, bad service is just too much to bear.
Good beer, great fries – Saturday nights at BrewCo were a tradition while I was at UCLA. There were never any lines, it was always busy but never packed, and they always have $3 beer of the months. Sometimes there is a free comedy show on Mondays, and check out the upstairs bar with the kareoke lounge for a laugh. Drinks are nothing to talk about, but besides that, good college bar. And the french fries are good for a late snack!
A Family – My wife has just passed. She spent the last year at UCLA Medical Center. The staff and regulars at the Brewco were my great support and family during this very hard time. Everyone there is very real and down to earth. I can't believe the comment on here about a "racial comment" by the staff. The staff there is diverse and fun, the person who made this comment must have been clueless to their playful sense of humor. I will drive the 140 miles I live from there just to connect with them again.
