Best New-Old Brewpub - 2005
Bull & Bush Pub & Brewery
While the brewpub industry has fallen flat in recent years, the Bull & Bush proves that you can teach an old dog new tricks. Now more than thirty years old, the Bull was modeled after the 300-years-older Bull & Bush near London and spent its first few decades as a classic Glendale watering hole -- which means the amount you drank (and who you drank it with) was sometimes more important than what you drank. But the introduction of a microbrewery three years ago poured new life into this animal. Today, the Bull & Bush pumps out award-winning brews that make an already good bar even better. Throw in the Bull's live music and more than a hundred kinds of Scotch, and better becomes the best.
