HOLLYWOOD— The ill-fated Osaka will soon be replaced by Tavern on Hollywood, an American pub with a long list of brews and standard American bar staples. Rundown says this new haunt opens August 15 with three bars, 42 taps, and 17 flat-screen tvs. [Rundown]

SANTA MONICA— LAW restaurant critic Besha Rodell is somewhat up in arms that the only Los Angeles eatery mentioned in Newsweek's cover story, titled "The 101 Best Places to Eat In The World," is Farmshop. Keep in mind this is the same issue which reused stock art from UK's Observer Food Monthly in 2008. Anyway, Rodell states, "With all the amazing food L.A. has to offer, both upscale and ethnic (and upscale ethnic), the fact that this little farm-to-table bistro-market hybrid is our only shout-out would be offensive if it weren't so obviously just plain lazy. So don't take this as a dig at Farmshop. Take it as what it is -- a dig at Newsweek." [LAW]

SANTA MONICA— Although gaining popularity, sour beers are still harder to find. Library Alehouse has consistently been a supporter of the bret-brewerd beers, and now management has announced the 2012 Sourfest. Taking place September 4 to 10, Sourfest kicks off with the following on tap: Ladyface Guillotine, Eagle Rock Equinox, The Bruery BeRazzled, The Bruery Hottenroth Berliner Weisse, The Bruery Nottenroth Berliner Weisse w/ Kumquats, The Bruery Tart of Darkness, The Bruery Oude Tart, and Golden Road Berliner Weisse.
