For its fifth year, Beer Week's
finally getting that Huffy it's been asking Mom for blowing it out, with 10 days of tastings, dinners, and other generally awesome hops-infused stuff. And since you can't go to everything because you're a very successful junior assistant to an agent, here are the five can't-miss events
LA Beer Week Opening Gala
September 22nd, Union Station
So, um, the whole thing actually starts three days earlier, but WHO CARES? THEY'VE GOT 50 BREWERS DOING UNLIMITED POURS RIGHT IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN.
Get tickets right here
Musical Beer Crawl
September 24th, Up and down Sunset Blvd
This always super-sweet event throughout Echo Park's got rad discounts and special brews at a different spot every single hour, among other promised surprises (no clowns... please no clowns), with a followable route that ends with a "pants off dance-off", so wear shorts and you should be fine.
Get your passport and peep the route right here
Build Your Own Brewer's Supper
September 25th, Chloe
The semi-private brewery-within-a-brewery (within-a-brewery -- just kidding, but wouldn't that be crazy?) at Golden Road's Glendale HQ's doing a $38 all-in four-courser, in which you choose your own adventure from a slew of eats (fried pigs ears/rack of lamb/etc.), each paired with its own beer, and hope you don't end up getting hexed by the voodoo lady who lives in your uncle's antique shop on page 48.
