It’s like Christmas in September for craft beer lovers around Los Angeles. The fifth annual Los Angeles Beer Week officially kicks off today and will tantalize your beer-loving palate for ELEVEN days!
LA Beer Week is essentially a celebration of craft beer through Los Angeles via ticketed events like the Opening Gala on Sunday, September 22, to existing establishments hosting a variety events like tap takeovers. And there are SO many events that we don’t even know where to start, but since Girls Who Like Beer are pretty much centered around Northeast LA, we’ll focus for a bit on some fantastic events that are a short drive, bus ride, or even walkable.
Be sure to visit the LA Beer Week events page for all the events, and share with us on our Facebook page, Twitter, or in the comments below what you’re excited about. We’re definitely there for the Musical Beer Crawl in Echo Park – where will you be?
More after the jump!
