Drinking at Sunset Junction: Good Microbrew

For the past seven years, Good Microbrew & Grill on Sunset Blvd. has made their own beer garden during the Sunset Junction Street Festival. And even though that this year if you go south of Sanborn St. there is no festival (yet the street is still closed off and you still have to pay to get in), the beer garden goes on.
"Why drink one of those weak corporate beers when you can have a nice microbeer," said Ron Martinez, owner of Good Microbrew, earlier this afternoon. And it's quite a good deal too.
You can get $5 for a pint. With over 20 draft microbrews to choose from, the choices are plenty, including Good's own microbrews, Flying Dog, Good Amber, Lost Coast, Kona Lager, Karl Strauss (Red Trolley, amber lager, Windseed Wheat, Woodie Gold) and Firestone Walker (hemp, double barrel, California pale, India pale and robust porter ales). They're still serving their normal menu as well, which has 300 microbrews on it.
To find Good Microbrew, look up and south down Sunset Blvd. and you'll see a little blimp balloon floating in the sky.
