Located in a converted warehouse across the street from LA State Historic Park, Highland Park Brewery Chinatown is twice the size as their original space at The Hermosillo in HP, with plenty of tables for big groups, a dog-friendly front patio facing the park, and their first dedicated tasting room inside. Their bar snacks menu is small, but way more delicious than it needs to be (get the cheese curds). And yes, the beer is still fantastic. This is where you need to be drinking before a Dodgers Game.
