THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Weiland Brewery Restaurant Restaurant Review

: On an unexpectedly busy corner across the street from the Japanese National Museum sits this self-proclaimed American bistro in Little Tokyo. It’s a casual, boisterous place where the beer and cocktails flow freely (there are two different happy hours each night) and where loft residents join high-rise office workers waiting out the traffic for some tasty and reasonably priced American fare. Burgers---beef, turkey, buffalo or veggie---are offered with toppings ranging from Kahlúa barbecue sauce to wasabi mayo to cayenne pepper sauce, and starters like crispy calamari, wings, and corn tortilla “crab cakes” with red pepper aïoli pair well with cocktails. Larger plates include Cajun-style filet mignon, fish ‘n’ chips, seared ahi and pastas.

Weiland Brewery, My home away from home...
by Eat Drink LA on Wed Jun 22, 2011 10:37 am
My first visits to Weiland I went with people from work, the food was great and reasonably priced. They have a great beer selection but I can't drink at lunch with co-workers so I stopped by after work to have just one or two beers. That's when it happened, I discovered LA's Best Happy Hour and a great bar scene. The bartender told me draft beer is $3.00 during Happy Hour and I was hooked, all craft beers no PBR here. It's a comfortable place to hang out, I met some locals who educated me on downtown neighborhoods and Weilands. The building was originally the "John Weiland Brewery" from the late 1800's until prohibition ended them, cool history. Happy Hour goes from 3 to 7pm then beers are $4 or $5 and food is full price, I've occasionally lost track of time at Weilands, it's really easy to do, that's how I found out Happy Hour starts all over again from 10pm until 2am. I'm there a few times a week, I like the beer, food and people. I eat and drink more at Weilands than home.
