Great spot in some dark area, but great spot once you get in the bar. The food and beer were excellent and it’s a great scene once in the bar.

We always check out local breweries when we travel and were in Carson during the week for a soccer match. I wasn’t sure if I would like the creepy theme to this brewery, but my husband loves Halloween. Once my eyes adjusted to the dim...lighting, I found the brewery to be very interesting. As other reviews have mentioned, there is a movie room that plays old horror films, side rooms to hang out and a game area. The best part of this brewery is really the beer and food. We had a flight of their beers and all of them were solid. We especially enjoyed the pale ale Paradise Lost and a farmhouse ale called Dolores. Generally speaking, breweries with good beer have poor food and vise versa. The food during our experience was a match to the beers. We tried their pretzel, brisket sandwich and Philly cheesesteak all of which were delicious. This brewery is hard to find and the parking is limited, but we didn’t have much of an issue around 6:30p on a Tuesday.More

Popped in to quench my hunger and thirst and was pleasantly surprised. A few of my favorites included the Baroness DIPA (full-body and nicely balanced with citrus/berry flavors); Lecter (nicely balanced farmhouse); and London After Midnight (smooth ESB). As for food, the Bavarian pretzel was...accompanied by a tangy-sweet mustard and very flavorful beer cheese, while the featured pizza absolutely hit the spot after several pints. More so than the beer and food, this is probably the most atmospheric brewery in town! With candles and a gothic theme that includes its very own theater that rotates horror movies, it certainly does not fall short on uniqueness. Stop by and enjoy a pint, bite, and a horror flick!More

When my GPS took me to their location, I went couldn't be - but there it was. When you enter, you will find a really cool atmosphere, friendly staff and awesome beers. I did not eat here, but the menu looked interesting.

Stopped in here with a group of friends before the LA Galaxy game. Definitely a hidden gem in the area. Beers were pretty good....I had a flight of 4 beers. Really liked the Mexican amber and the rasberry beer.

I've had a few beers from Phantom Carriage, and I do agree with everyone in here that says They're great. They're Pulled Pork Sliders are very tasty, and have a kick to them. I will however say getting a beer here takes forever! I've been...here twice and the first time i thought it was just a fluke, but my second visit was the same. I recommend ordering two drinks at a time that way you don't have to stand in that line.More

Thank God for all the great reviews from Trip Advisor or we would have missed out on this place! It is a little hidden so you really have to trust your guidance system, it’s not lying! The food is amazing! I’m so glad the guy...in front of us suggested the pulled pork, it was delicious. The meat was so tender and so flavorful with or without the sauce and with or without the bun! The pulled pork is phenomenal on its own. My husband had the turkey sandwich and that had a nice little kick to it. All the beers are awesome. The staff is very friendly, very nice and laid back. To top it all off, you can enjoy a great horror flick with your lunch or dinner if you choose 😀More

This place has a great set up, it's a Brewery, a taproom, movie theater and eatery. You walk-in in and it's dark & Mysterious as they pay homage to old, cult classic horror movies. The bar is right up front and you can see the...brewery equipment in the rear of the building, you can see the display kitchen through the window across from the bar. I saved the best for last.. and in a side room to the right of the bar is a movie room! The movie room has tables and chairs, drink rails around the perimeter and they are always playing an older, cult classic horror movie (the 2 times I've been here they had The Toxic Avenger playing and the original Halloween). Great food, good beers and fantastic ambiance!More

This place is awesome. Great ambient, staff, service and food. Vintage Horror inspired and free cult movies playing in their theatre. Parking is in the big, but gets packed after work, but plenty of street parking. Use a nav, you may not find this place....Entrance on the side. I ordered their Pamplemouse IPA and my friend ordered the a Double Raspberry. They also offer beer flights. For food, we ordered their Creature a Dip (Spinach dip), Homemade Hummus and Ploughman’s Platter. The Ploughman’s platter is huge and enough for 3-4 people to share, or maybe one big hungry person. *be warned. Some dishes are spicy, so if you are not into the heat, please ask before ordering. I was referred by a friend, and definitely will be returning. Price Range - $$More

We were trying to kill some time before a flight and googled "breweries near me". We found the address and a parking spot, but you really have to look for how to enter. Once inside, it took a while for the eyes to adjust, but...wow! The bartender was great, we enjoyed our lunches, the food was real good and it was neat watching the campy movies on the walls. I wish i lived closer. Sigh.........More

Dark,great decor and beer barrels everywhere. The pork sliders and the phantom fritos are really good. Drinks are tasty and well priced. The smores brulee was the best! Its alittle hidden but worth the find.

My boyfriend and I had a long layover at LAX so we decided to grab a few beers here. The atmosphere and horror movie theme was pretty cool. There were about six or eight beers on tap, the four we tried were decent. They have...done small snacks if you get hungry tooMore

I enjoyed a fun happy hour here with co-workers. It's a pretty cool place that doesn't look anything like you expect once you get inside. There are high top tables to sit at near the bar as well as in a couple of rooms. It's...definitely dark in there, so it took a while for my eyes to adjust. Everyone enjoyed the creature dip (spinach & artichoke) which had a little bit of a kick to it. This non-beer drinker didn't love the fact that they didn't have any sangria that day :( Also, it is hard to find the first time you go there. There are no visible signs from the street and a narrow driveway that leads to a very small parking lot behind the building. But once you find the place, I'm sure you'll have a good time!More

The Ambiance is interesting. We each had 2 beers or 2 glasses of wine ( glad there was that option, I'm not much of a beer drinker). The food was pretty good for a brewery, we started with an artichoke dip that was very tasty....My husband liked the fritos with all kinds of stuff on top. The pulled pork was the best. All the different types of bread that accompanied the food was wonderful. We also had a burrata- pesto pizza that I'd go back for. Loved the dj's eclectic record album collection!!More

My husband and I visited this charming little place on a Sunday before heading to the Stub Hub center for a game. You order at the bar and seat yourself. There is seating at the bar and most tables seat two. There are a couple...rooms that have larger seating options (4-6) but that's minimal. The food options weren't extravagant but they paired nicely with their beer on tap. Their beer selection was great and I was pleased to see that they offered the appropriate serving size for the drink ordered. Note, give yourself enough to time to arrive before a game if visiting on a gameday. I would recommend at least 2 hours ahead. Lines get long the closer it gets to game time and you won't have enough to time to take in the ambience. I would highly recommend this place for couples or friends. The environment is dim in lighting and has a horror-like theme throughout. They even have a small theatre room. If you like craft beer (or if you're trying to get your significant other to try it) this should be on your list of places to visit.More
