The brewpub Golden Road Brewing is further proof that you can stick a restaurant anywhere in L.A. and they will come. Located behind the train tracks off the 134 Freeway, the tri-color complex sits on the same stretch of industrial San Fernando road on the border of Glendale and Atwater Village as a strip club, furniture showrooms and warehouses. Owners Tony Yanow and Meg Gill opened the 32,000-square-foot brewery and pub in 2011, offering 20 craft beers on tap, from Hefeweizen to IPAs, including the hoppy house specialty Point the Way IPA. But don’t expect greasy bar food. The menu is more than vegetarian and vegan friendly, with options like cast iron lasagna, quinoa and Southwest burgers, even Oreo cheesecake. Carnivores need not cringe, as they, too, can choose from dishes like the Hefeweizen-braised pulled pork sandwich or the beer-drinker’s best friend – baby back ribs. The large outdoor patio, with its “doggy deck,” is perfect for pets. It’s also perfect for getting hammered and discreetly taking a nap, whizzing trains and cars be damned.
