All Season Brewing
Where to Grab a Drink in Los Angeles Right Now
Taking over the historic, mid-century modern Firestone building at the corner of La Brea and 8th, All Seasons Brewing has an extensive list of beers brewed onsite in their glass-encased 15-barrel brewhouse, with a focus on classic, American styles like pilsners, Hazy IPAs, West Coast IPAs, and a few malt-centric lagers. Open until midnight Sunday–Thursday and until 2 am on the weekends, it’s easy to lose track of time exploring the brewery’s expansive grounds, which include a wraparound patio overlooking La Brea, a back patio with picnic tables, and a spacious, open-air interior with a vintage-style bar backed by large windows that offer a view of the brewhouse, plus skeeball games and a photobooth. Food is provided by Chicas Tacos, which offers a variety of meaty and plant-based options including a jackfruit taco, dirty fries (think nachos except toppings come on fries instead of tortilla chips), wings, and a breakfast burrito that’s only available on the weekends. All Seasons Brewing positions itself as a bar before a brewery, meaning they’ve got a full list of cocktails and draft wines available in addition to beers.
Where to Drink Beer in LA This Fall
It is not easy to medal in the ultra-competitive IPA category at the Great American Beer Festival, which makes brewer Erick Garcia’s recent bronze medal all the more impressive. Taking over the former Firestone Tire outlet, much of the original architecture and design has been preserved, with the addition of a glass-encased 15-barrel brewhouse, plus indoor-outdoor seating. All Season positions itself as a bar first, with well drinks and craft cocktails available alongside a lengthy beer list that includes crushable American- and Italian-style pilsners, hoppy IPAs, malt-centric lagers, and rustic saisons. Start with an $8 pint of the citrus and floral Bullitt IPA, then play a few rounds of Skee-Ball and stop by on-site Chica’s Tacos to get your taco and nacho fix.
