Noble drops Nelson Showers and is one of the best DIPAs I have ever had. The Citra Showers is also amazing. Both are limited release. The other Showers series are good, but not mind blowing like the two mentioned.
Bottle Logic is really good but the crowds are getting ridiculous. Last time I waited 1 hour in line, they had some crazy release and the place was packed.
Monkish is fantastic for Vermont style hazy IPAs. Then go to Nijiya for some Meyer Ranch prime ribeye. Proceed drive home as fast as you can, it will make watching the Lakers lose that much less painful. That Nijiya also has really good sushi, probably the best sushi rice for market sushi. I was pleasantly shocked at how balanced the rice was.
I like Pliny and one of the best I have ever had was on tap, but for me the local places seemed to have surpassed the stuff Russian River is shipping down here. I recently had a bottle and thought it was good, but not as good as I remembered it from before. Same with Alpine, they used to sell some of the best hoppy beers ever, now they are just okay.
