Updated April Events

As mentioned, here is a list of upcoming events for April.

For those of us not attending Viva Las Vegas or Coachella this year, here are a few beer events for this weekend.

April 19th – Art District Clean Up in Downtown LA. Help Angel City Brewery clean up the neighborhood and enjoy some food and beer in the afternoon. From 12pm-3pm and visit Angel City Brewery at angelcitybrewery.com

Taste of Brews Inland Empire at Crossroads Riverview Park in Corona. More than 40 breweries will be attending. I highly recommend getting your tickets before the event to avoid any line hassles. If you have someone in your party that is willing to be a designated driver, Taste of Brews offers a specially priced ticket just for them. Visit tasteofbrews.com for the deets!

***Recommended*** LA Foodie’s Float Trip at Angel City Brewery. If you’ve never had a beer float, this is the event to try it. A beer float is just what it sounds like, an ice cream float made with beer. Not just any ice cream, locally produced ice cream with a locally produced craft beer. Having a beer float is something every beer lover should do whenever possible! This event will take place at Angel City Brewery in Downtown LA from 4pm – 7pm.

April 23- ***Recommended*** Beer Belly LA in my new hometown area of Koreatown or “Ktown”, is one of my favorite places to indulge on both food and drink. Once a month, Beer Belly will host a brewery for an event they call “One Night Stand”. Their taps are taken over by a featured brewery and this month’s O.N.S. is with Mother Earth Brewery. Visit the beer belly event page at beerbellyla.com

for the deets!

April 24 – The Dudes’ Brewing Cask Tapping at Kings Row Pub in Pasadena. Beers on Cask are beers in barrels. To release a beer on cask is pretty much like having it as fresh as possible. I would compare it to eating an ice cream sundae with a wooden spoon as opposed to a metal spoon. The beer in a cask takes your taste buds for a ride. Visit kingsrowpub.com for further detail

April 26 – Bootlegger’s Brewery 6th Anniversary Celebration. Bootlegger’s Brewery has been one of my favorite places to get beer. This is one ticket in which you get more bang for your buck as opposed to other beer festivals. boot Tickets are still available though I don’t know for how long. Visit bootleggersbrewery.com for ticket purchasing info.

April 27 – Atwater Village Beer, Wine and Food Festival at Link N Hops. This ticket is a little more than the average beer festival ticket but for unlimited tasters, it’s worth it. atwater Visit the site for info on price and ticket purchase.

April 27 – 1st Annual Brewfest of the Foothills at Congregation Ale House in Pasadena. Congregation Ale House is a place that has an amazing selection of beer and such great burgers! I would imagine any event with “1st Annual” to it’s name is going to be a blast! The ticket prices are reasonable $25 presale $30 at the door, and tickets can be purchased at Congregation Ale House Chapters (Pasadena, Long Beach, Azusa). The plus side, it’s walking distance to the Metro Gold Line!!!

This rounds up the month of April. I will try my best to continuously update the events page as I hear about them. There are so many great beer events happening that I’m not sure just yet which one I will be attending. If you happen to see me at any of these events be sure to say hello and have a drink with me! Hope to see you soon!

Cheers!
