Bikes, Brunch, Beer! The B3 Charity Bike Ride! 

What could be better on a Saturday afternoon in mid-June than riding your bike to three of the best beer spots in Los Angeles? Maybe being shuttled around in an air conditioned bus, but that’s beyond the point.

On Saturday, you can bike and drink for charity! The B3 Ride charity bike tour will support the Pablove Foundation and will take you from Tony’s Darts Away, stop at Golden Road Brewing, and finish at Mohawk Bend, with each stop offering brunch and beverages.

38 Degrees Three Year Anniversary

Go support a LA craft beer institution and drink some fine barrel-aged beer at the 38 Degrees 3rd Anniversary Barrel Aged Beer Festival on Saturday. Just being open for three years makes them worthy enough of recognition, but 38 Degrees, and owner Clay Harding, have been doing it right for that long. 

Starting at 1:00pm on Saturday, they’ll have 25 barrel-aged beers on tap and plenty of other options.


Sunday – June 17th
