    Angel City Brewery

    216 S Alameda St, Los Angeles, CA 90012
    angelcitybrewery.com

    Owned by Boston Beer Company, Angel City started as a homebrew operation in Torrance, grew into a production brewery at the Alpine Village, then moved their brewhouse to a 100-year-old building in the Arts District. Now, they’re making IPAs and other brews in Downtown LA.

    A favorite: White Nite – A “golden stout” that looks like a golden and tastes like a stout, like a beer magic trick.

  • Arts District Brewery in Los Angeles

    Arts District Brewery

    828 Traction Ave, Los Angeles, California 90013
    artsdistrictbrewing.com

    Housed in the old “Crazy Gideon’s” building right smack in the middle of the Arts District, this brewpub has it all. Skeeball, cornhole, food by Fritzi, darts, beers, liquor, and a covered patio. Brewmaster Devon Randall (formerly of Pizza Port) whips up beers of every style with collaborations of all types like a beer made with Gin botanicals from a neighboring distillery, The Spirit Guild.

    A favorite: Kablamo Rye IPA – a rye bitter bomb that’s super aromatic, super dry and super delicious.

    Craftsman Brewing Co.

    1260 Lincoln Ave, Pasadena, CA 91103
    craftsmanbrewing.com

    If you want to visit their taproom, you’ll have to go to Lucky Baldwin’s in Pasadena or a handful of other local bars because Craftsman does not allow people inside. They’re basically the Willy Wonka of LA beer. Very small operation that’s been open since the mid-90’s cranking out solid beers and experimental stuff alike.

    A favorite: 1903 Lager – it’s a pre-prohibiton era lager that is slightly richer than your usual lager and way more flavorful.

  • Dry River Brewing in Los Angeles

    Dry River Brewing

    671 S Anderson St, Los Angeles, CA 90023
    dryriverbrewing.com

    You’ll love the feeling you get when you walk through the oak door of Dry River Brewing. It’s a small, beautiful taproom located in Boyle Heights, just a short distance from the Arts District, that is covered in oak and has a handmade appeal that makes you feel like you’re inside an antique liquor cabinet. You’ll find no liquor here, but what you will find is intricate beers that focus on funk. Brewmaster Naga Reshi sources wild yeast strains and bacteria from all over (including a yeast strain he got from Boyle Heights) and harnesses them to create complex beers that are as funky and sour as they get.

  • Eagle Rock Brewery in Los Angeles

    Eagle Rock Brewery

    3056 Roswell St, Los Angeles, CA 90065
    eaglerockbrewery.com

    The oldest brewery in Los Angeles, even though they were only formed in 2009, Eagle Rock Brewery excels on two extremes: session and sour. While their taproom is technically in Glassel Park they do have a full restaurant in neighboring Eagle Rock (check out the Eagle Rock Public House). And even though they’re the old guys on the block, they consistently win medals for their beer, they continue to innovate with beer styles and they are shining examples of what it means to be a member of the Los Angeles beer community.

    A favorite: Tarte Noir – their light-bodied dark sour ale.

    Frogtown Brewery

    2931 Gilroy St, Los Angeles, CA 90039
    frogtownbrewery.com

    What started off as a homebrew shop has now turned into a brewery and tasting room which is a common theme in the story of craft beer in America (Sierra Nevada and Ballast Point both started as homebrew shops). It’s currently the only brewery in the Frogtown area and if you’re one of the people who doesn’t know where Frogtown is (which is most people), it’s just across the 5 freeway from Dodger Stadium adjacent to the LA River, which is how it got its name (because of all the frogs that used to live in the LA River).

  • Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles

    Golden Road Brewing

    5410 W San Fernando Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90039
    goldenroad.la

    Owned by Anheuser-Busch Inbev, this is easily the largest brewery in Los Angeles. Golden Road Brewing focuses on canned beer, good food, and lawn games. Tons of seasonal IPAs along with their year-round specialties make this place totally drinkable all the time. Also, love it or hate it, kids are welcome and if you go before 6pm, it’s usually populated with as many people under the age of 6 as there are over the age of 21. Check out their other locations in Orange County and Grand Central Market in Downtown LA.

    A favorite: Wolf Pup Session IPA – a sessionable IPA that’s the younger sibling of their Wolf Among Weeds.

    hpb.la

    You may not even know it when you’re at Highland Park Brewery because the brewery is tucked into the back of The Hermosillo, a little beer & wine bar in Highland Park. The thing you can’t miss is how incredible and inventive their beer is. Bob Kunz runs the brewery and crafts a wide assortment of styles all of which should be sampled.

    A favorite: Whatever’s super fresh or wonderfully aged.

    Named after a Los Angeles political alliance (or a musical instrument), Iron Triangle opened their 100 year-old space in the Arts District in 2016. Besides their lineup of solidly drinkable beers (including “Jawbone”, which won a Bronze medal at GABF in 2016), Iron Triangle has beautiful architecture, five professional-grade foosball tables, and a steadily rotating event lineup that has included everything from trivia nights to an immersive theatre experience to a night of readings by the Poet Laureate of California.

    A favorite: Iron Triangle Dark Ale.

  • Mumford Brewing in Los Angeles

    Mumford Brewing

    416 Boyd St, Los Angeles, CA 90013
    mumfordbrewing.com

    Locals call this part of Downtown LA “Skid Rowkyo” because of the proximity to Skid Row and Little Tokyo, but Mumford calls it “Home”. Opened in 2015, Mumford Brewing was opened by brothers Todd and Peter Mumford (no relation to the band). Brewmaster Peter Mumford keeps the taproom loaded with styles of every kind – Belgian Witbiers, Belgian Dubels, Northeastern IPAs, West Coast IPAs, Milk Stouts, etc… And when you’re there, we recommend ordering pizza from neighboring Baldoria (our favorite is the Sweet Mary, a pie with strawberries and bacon on it).

    A favorite: The Love – a Milk Stout that they often have on nitro and sometimes they have with coffee added.

    They opened their taproom and within 3 days they won silver in the World Beer Cup for their Belgian and French-Style Ale – Ohana Saison Noir. It’s not that easy, but Andrew Luthi opened this brewery when he was 26 years old and makes it look that easy. They brew in Downtown LA but have a simple tasting room in Alhambra.

    A favorite: Saison Noir – come on, it’s delicious and a medal-winner.

  • Stone Brewing Co. in Los Angeles

    Stone Brewing Co.

    220 S Raymond Ave, Pasadena, CA
    stonebrewing.com/visit/outposts/pasadena

    They don’t brew in Pasadena. Stone Brewing Co. is headquartered in Escondido, and they brew in San Diego, Richmond VA, and in Berlin, Germany. But, Stone’s small Pasadena hideout pours all of their beer and does growler fills, bottle sales, merchandise & keg rentals. And don’t write this spot off just as a grab-and-go store, the staff at this location is one of the most knowledgeable and dedicated teams in all of LA. So grab a pint or a flight of generously sized tasters and settle in for a minute in their small outside patio and maybe consider ordering some pizza from The Luggage Room next door. And then consider getting another beer.

Located in Echo Park a stone’s throw from Dodger Stadium they opened in 2012 and have grown to be one of the greatest beer destinations in the city.

They have locations all over Southern California with four in San Diego, one in Temecula and they opened this Long Beach outpost in the Summer of 2016. Situated in the Alamitos Bay Marina, this gargantuan craft beer hotspot has a main bar, an outside bar, and a rooftop bar, so head to one of them and settle in for a while because in addition to their food they have over 30 of their beers on tap.

    Beachwood BBQ & Brewing won the “Brewpub of the Year” award from the Great American Beer Fest. And they won “Best Large Brewpub” in the world at the World Beer Fest. And they have barbecue. And they have one of the best guest taplists in LA. Their beers are made by brewmaster Julian Shrago who can bend hops with the best of them (if he’s not the best of them himself), so when you’re visiting try ALL of their IPA’s not just one or two. And if you’re looking for dessert, head next door to their sour sister – Beachwood Blendery.

    A favorite: Amalgamator – an incredible West Coast IPA that smacks of passionfruit and dank resin on the nose but is dry and light on the body.

    After dominating the world of hoppy beers at their main brewery location, Beachwood Blendery opened up to innovate (and presumably dominate) the world of sour beers. After starting slow in 2015, the Blendery released its first lambic-style beer in 2016 which set the bar for the rest of their sour beers to come in terms of complexity and deliciousness. The Long Beach Blvd. taproom is cozy with an educated and caring staff who serves a frequently rotating selection of sour and funky beers. Bottles are available to-go, but definitely stick around to taste something there, because many of their offerings are draft only. If you get hungry, Beachwood’s flagship BBQ & Brewery location is about 50 yards away.

    A favorite: Any of their lambic-inspired beers.

Think Spelt Saisons or 100% Brett Beers with Rangpur Limes enjoyed at a picnic table with your dog and husband at your side. It’s a big space, normally with food trucks, so bring the kids and plan to soak up some sun on their outdoor patio. And if drunken retail shopping is your thing, they’re located within stumbling distance of “Crafted” a permanent flea-market/pop-up-shop full of vendors with vintage records, books, knick-knacks and oddities.

    Nestled in an industrial park just North of the 134, Brewyard is located on what is (kind of) being called The San Fernando Brewing Corridor. Opened by two homebrewers in 2015, they’ve got a 4,500 square foot brewery and are using it to bubble up some tasty like a India Pale Lager, Cali Common, and a Black Lager which means they taste like ales with the crisp, clean profile of a lager. Their taproom is super comfy and interesting with elements of a neighborhood Belgian pub, board games, and a (fully functional) 1930’s vintage pickup truck. Their building is a little tough to find, but it’s worth the hunt.

    Brouwerij West started off as well known gypsy brewers, but in 2015, the team finally moved into a gorgeous space in San Pedro at the Ports o’ Call to brew and serve all of their funky Belgian-ish beers. Think Spelt Saisons or 100% Brett Beers with Rangpur Limes enjoyed at a picnic table with your dog and husband at your side. It’s a big space, normally with food trucks, so bring the kids and plan to soak up some sun on their outdoor patio. And if drunken retail shopping is your thing, they’re located within stumbling distance of “Crafted” a permanent flea-market/pop-up-shop full of vendors with vintage records, books, knick-knacks and oddities.

    What’s the only thing between you and a beer? A bartender. Most breweries embrace the tradition of having a knowledgeable bartender to happily serve you a beer and steer you in the direction of what may be the perfect pint for you. But Cosmic Brewery has said “Bartenders be damned, let them drink beer!” and removed the beer-keepers from the taproom allowing you to pour your own beer directly from the taps. How? Through the magic of technology they track whatever beers you pour and tally them up for you to close out your bill before you leave.

The space has some pinball machines, some arcade games and a rotating food truck schedule, so you can plan to spend more than just one pint’s worth of time there. FYI, the “Libations” part of the name only refers to handcrafted sodas so far…

    Their own description says it best: “THE unique dining, beer-sampling, banquet-hosting and catering experience in the heart of Valencia, Santa Clarita, California.” Founders Rob and Laina McFerren cover it all between their two locations – the original restaurant in Santa Clarita and the brewery and tasting room in Valencia.

    A favorite: Dogtown Dunkelweizen – the darker brother of their Hefeweizen, it’s a classic and well made dunkel.

  • Firestone Walker Venice in Los Angeles

    Firestone Walker’s corporate headquarters is technically in Belgium (at Duvel), their brewing headquarters are in Paso Robles, their barrel program is in Buellton, but now we have a Firestone Walker to call our own in Venice, CA. With a full restaurant, brewery and bottle shop onsite, it’s a one-stop shop for everything Firestone, and trust us, they’ve got something for everyone. Firestone happens to excel at all levels of beer: the every day drinker (see: DBA and Pivo), the sour freak (see: Agrestic and Krieky Bones), the hop head (see: Union Jack and Luponic Distorition) and the big beer lover (see: Sucaba and Parabola).
