Neighborhood Bar & Grill just off the beach in Venice.
Venerable beach dive bar with extensive beer selection.
Restaurant on the marina with a great view of the boats. Also a sports bar with lots of big TVs. Surprisingly good beer list for this type of place. Quarterly themed beer dinners.
Right on the Venice boardwalk with a great ocean view. Mostly West Coast beers with local breweries represented. Inside is small but this is LA, there is a heated patio. Taster flights available.
