    Minimum wage increases will kill independent restaurant operations in California.

    Being from Washington, I’ve noticed that SoCal beer pricing is consistently 20-30% higher for no obvious reason. We make great beer in Washington and you can typically find it for around $6, give or take. Down here, sometimes my beers are as or even more expensive than my friends’ glasses of wine. Good beer deserves solid pricing, that’s for sure – and expensive (to make) styles deserve a premium – but this pricing trend isn’t sustainable, IMO.

      The pricing is obvious to locals – rent is absurdly high and minimum wage has gone way up.

      Yeah, it’s not that there isn’t a reason, but rather the reason is awful.
      Too many people, everything is expensive in Southern California.

    Craft beer needs to keep prices around $14 for a 4 pack at the breweries and $8 for good beer at restaurants. Don’t hurt the PEOPLE that support the industry. BeerOn

    I live in Orange County but do head to DTLA occasionally. Mikkeller is just around the corner from Modern Times. The prices at MT are similar, if not more expensive, to Mikkeller. Other breweries in the area such as Boomtown or Mumford are less expensive. Going out to any brewery in this area seems to be getting more expensive. With the exception of Green Cheek, no one offers a full $5 pour. And I find myself getting beer to go or hitting local bottle shops for better deals. When two IPAs on tap cost more than a four pack of 16 oz cans, I’m doing less drinking in the brewery. When half pours cost 75% of a full pour I do less drinking in the brewery. Not a good trend.

    Other than FO and a few smaller places with more limited menus, the Westside is a craft beer desert, for sure. I would have been happy to see Mikkeller stake a claim. A smaller footprint would have helped them. Would it have lasted on the Westside? Maybe, as long as it didn’t set up shop in cursed Westwood Village.

    The one and only time I visited Mikkeller DTLA with friends was awful from walk in to a few days later. Service awful. Drinks way too expensive. Kitchen closed. My friends credit card number stolen by the server and fraud on the card committed a few days later.
