The Woodman

Sarah Bennett

Pitchforks on the walls and an all-out barn aesthetic sets The Woodman apart from the other Goat Group bars. But it still has the heavy craft beer emphasis that we've come to expect from the group, which has brought L.A. such beery wonderlands as Verdugo Bar, Surly Goat and Little Bear (another project, Sweeney’s Ale House, is now open just down the way in Encino). Known for creating bars that fit the needs of their neighborhoods, The Woodman has positioned itself as a good place to watch the game while sipping on crazy craft beer from the taplist’s rotation of new local releases, which thanks to co-owner Ryan Sweeney always includes rare kegs that you can't find anywhere else.
