For the beer aficionado, there's no better place to go than the Otheroom in Venice.

On a coveted corner of Abbott Kinney stands a large all brick building. Over the doors, a small black sign hangs with the lowercase letters spelling out "the otheroom" displayed in yellow lighting.

There, people try each other's drinks and debate about the merits of each brew.
