Bar/Pub/Tavern/Restaurant/Gastropub in Los Angeles
The Famous craft cocktail lounge is located in Glendale’s historic Huntley-Evans building, directly across the street from the Americana at Brand. It follows an eclectic and rich pedigree of establishments that have called this building home in the last century, most notably the early Glendale landmark, The Famous Department Store. The Famous, true to its heritage, embraces the classic art of fine craft cocktail creation, invented in the United States in 1856, using bitters, juices, syrups, and infusions, prepared in-house using fresh ingredients from local markets and growers. Cocktails served at The Famous are identical to those served nearly 100 years ago when the building was constructed. The large specialty cocktail and seasonal drink menusare further complimented by a vast and ever evolving menu and draft beer selection.

Iron Triangle Dark Ale

Brewed with pilsner, crystal, chocolate barley malts, deep roasted malt, and a touch of noble hops.
Food Pairings: The rich characteristics of Iron Triangle Dark Ale tends to compliment cheeses with nutty or brown butter type aromas as well as cheeses that leave a subtle sweet impression. Try pairing this with a Gruyére or Beaufort. On the decadent side, baked brie pairs well with the beer’s faint sweetness and roasty characteristics. Iron Triangle Dark Ale also stands up well to heavier savory flavors. Serve it alongside a rack of ribs or your favorite burger to accentuate the char of the food and cleanse your palate. Cajun dishes also pair remarkably well with the beer’s clean roast flavors, which help meld the spice and rich aromatics typical of the cuisine.
