Patch has already written about the official opening of Public School 310 on Dec. 6 at the corner of Culver Boulevard and Main Street and what customers can expect from the menu. However, the full-service, 125-seat gastropub – designed by Los Angeles-based Kelly architects - will also have a resident on-site beer expert.
Tate Klein has curated a bar that will feature 24 craft beers on tap; 14 of which will rotate continuously. His credentials include tenure under beer sommeliers and authors, Hallie Beaune and Christina Perozzi, of thebeerchicks.com at the 8th Street Bottle Shop in Downtown Los Angeles.
Kline was also recently assistant general manager at Wurstküche in Venice. Prior to that Kline was Stone Brewery’s East Los Angeles County sales representative.
“My experiences with Stone Brewery gave me a passion for craft beer,” Kline said in an official statement. It has so many nuances and flavor profiles that are constantly developing and changing. I am excited to incorporate those unique styles into our rotating taps and help share my education with the students at Public School.”
In addition to developing Public School 310’s original craft beer list, Kline’s responsibilities include selecting the rotating taps and working with the culinary team on pairing those with special menu items.
Additionally, the bar features artisanal cocktails inspired by retro favorites and wines “on tap” served from kegs. “Recess” - aka happy hour - will be offered daily with special menu items priced at $4, $5 and $6 such as: Cedar Smoked Campechana, Parmesan Truffle Frites and Dos Tacos.
The bar will soon announce the 2013 schedule for “Night School” classes with subjects such as beer and food pairings, spirits and seasonal cocktail tastings. Public School 310 also plans to participate in Downtown Culver City’s monthly “Third Wednesdays” events, where guests can sample specials and “recess” menu items.
PS 310 will be open seven days a week.
