Oak & Vine (2017-03-11)

I just discovered Oak & Vine in Inglewood. Oh, my. They have growler fills, they have a huge selection of singles, including build-your-own six-pack pricing, and they have some seriously good beers. I’m not ashamed to say I got a little emotional, and had to leave before scanning all the shelves… mostly because my beer fridge was already full and I’m leaving town in 4 days, so there’s a limit to how many IPAs I can drink between then and now. I will be back!
