• beer and wine now at veggie grill sunset!

    March 6th, 2010quarrygirlLA restaurants, veggie grill

    it took them a little while to get their license, but as of yesterday, the veggie grill on sunset is finally serving up bottled beer as well as red and white wine.

    beer at veggie grill

    they currently have 2 beers from new belgium brewing (fat tire and mothership wit) as well as both red and white wine from mas. i dropped by this afternoon and grabbed a bottle of the mothership to accompany my lunch, and while it wasn’t my favorite beer on earth, it was definitely pleasant.

    so as if the terrific chili and burgers weren’t enough to get you out of your house and over to veggie grill in this horrific weather, you now have the added temptation of alcohol. 🙂 veggie grill is one of the VERY few all vegan places in LA to serve beer, so let’s show them some support. maybe if we buy enough of it, they will put some beer on tap. (i can dream.)

  • New Belgium isn’t the best choice of beer, frankly. Clearly, whomever chose the beer doesn’t know anything about beer.

  • I like Fat Tire. I agree though, how great would it be on tap?

  • I totally like New Belgium and the company is cool as fuck. And their stuff is great on tap too. Some of their Lips of Faith brews are off the charts. I think it’s a great choice for a vegan restaurant. Fat Tire is pretty popular and tasty. I think a beer qualified for a beer snob (possibly myself) wouldn’t qualify for a place selling only two types of brews. I think wit and amber are safe choices to start off with. I actually can’t wait to stop by and hook this up.

  • studiodrome: While I agree that New Belgium is an awesome brewery, I think the choice to stock two of their most uninspiring brews is a mistake.

    Veggie Grill has plenty of room to have a beer fridge with several choices of bottles, as well as something more imaginative than the boring and relatively ubiquitous Fat Tire! Perhaps Anderson Valley’s excellent (and entirely vegan) range?

    But, as quarrygirl says, the only real solution would be rotating taps with a few local beers and some from further afield. These days, a microkeg will keep for a week or two, and if a place like Pure Luck can keep 8-10 beers on tap I’d think that Veggie Grill could easily tap up 3-4.

    I really hope they go the route that Tender Greens went, with a 6-tap setup that rotates some pretty decent beers. I can see Veggie Grill being a great hangout place (I’d be there for sure!!).

  • I like New Belgium (Lips of Faith and Le Fleur are quite good). Maybe it is because I just like Belgian style beers, full stop? Fat Tire isn’t bad either! I mean, seriously, they could have Molson or Bud Light, in which case I’d rather not drink beer at all. Or the vegan restaurant staple – Samuel Smith, which is not that great.

  • I don’t drink at all, but I must go here and sample the vegan dishes they have soon.

  • You should start drinking

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE their All Hail Kale salad with blackened tempeh. I can’t get enough of it. VG rocks!

  • Damn, Ryan’s gonna be stoked when we go back there.
