ORGANIZERS SAY IT WAS DEFINITELY NOT AN ACT OF SABOTAGE, JUST AN ACCIDENT. SLOWED EVERYBODY DOWN. IT MAY HAVE TAKEN L.A. A LITTLE WHILE TO TAP INTO THE BEER SCENE. THE BREWING BUSINESS IS DEFINITELY BOOMING NOW. TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE SOUTHLAND’S HOTTEST BREWERIES. WHATEVER YOUR FLAVOR, THE CRAFT BEERS ARE HERE AND THE BREWING IN LOS ANGELES HAS NEVER BEEN BETTER. THE L.A. BEER SCENE IS EXPLODING. JOHN SAYS WHILE LOS ANGELES MAY HAVE BEEN A LITTLE BIT LATE GETTING INTO THE BEER GAME, WE’RE CATCHING UP IN A HURRY. THERE’S ALMOST 5 BREWERIES IN — 50 BREWERIES IN THE COUNTY OF L.A., LIKE A DOZEN OPEN IN THE PAST YEAR. PROBABLY A DOZEN THAT WILL OPEN IN THE NEXT SIX MONTHS TO A YEAR. HERE ARE HIS MUST STOP HOT SPOTS IN THE SOUTHLAND. FIRST STOP THE ARTS DISTRICT BREWING COMPANY. KIND OF LIKE THE KEYSTONE OF THE DOWNTOWN SCENE THE 17,000 SQUARE FOOT SPACE FEATURES A ROOM LOADED WITH CLASSIC BAR GAMES AND A 15 BARREL BREW HOUSE WHERE THEY PRODUCE SEVERAL IPA’S, STOUTS. WHATEVER FLAVORS YOU LIKE, YOU WILL FIND SOMETHING HERE. NEXT STOP IS IN INGLEWOOD. IT IS COOL BECAUSE THEIR TASTING ROOM IS OPEN TO THE BREWERY. YOU CAN SMELL THE BEER COOKING WHICH IS ALWAYS AN INTERESTING THING TO EXPERIENCE. AN OPEN RELAXED ATMOSPHERE WITH COMMUNAL TABLES HELPS FEED INTO THEIR MOTTO. IT IS MORE THAN BEER. IT’S COMMUNITY. A GREAT RANGE OF IPA’S, ENGLISH STYLE ALES. THEY HAVE THE DARK BEERS, COFFEE BEERS. IT IS A GREAT PLACE TO GO AND FIND WHAT YOU LIKE THERE. THE NEXT ONE IS IN TORRANCE. SEMI-HIDDEN IN AN INDUSTRIAL PARK, IT IS KNOWN FOR BREWING OUTSIDE THE BOX, EXPERIMENTING WITH FRUITS, HERBS AND EVEN BEER WINE HYBRIDS. ONE FUSION YOU HAVE TO TRY. THE BEST COMBO OF BEER AND COFFEE I THINK I HAVE EVER HAD. NESTLED IN THE BACK OF A TINY BEER AND WINE CLUB LIES THE HIGHLAND PARK BREWERY. THERE’S NO REASON THE BEERS — THE BREW HOUSE IS ONLY CAPABLE OF MAKING ABOUT 200 GALLONS AT A TIME, SO CROWDS LINE UP EVERY TIME THERE’S A SPECIAL RELEASE. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WHEN YOUR BREWERY IS MAKING GREAT HIGH QUALITY BEER IT IS WORTH DRIVING INTO HIGHLAND PARK TO DRINK THE BEERS. LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST BEACHWOOD BREWERY IN LONG BEACH. MAYBE THE BEST BREWERY IN LOS ANGELES, MAYBE THE BEST BREWERY IN CALIFORNIA. LOCATED ON THE PROMENADE, BEACHWOOD FEATURES 22 ROTATING TAPS AND ONE BEER FOR YOUR DRINKING PLEASURE. THEY TAKE THEIR BEER VERY SERIOUSLY AND IT SHOWS. NO ONE PAYS MORE ATTENTION TO HOW IT SHOULD BE SERVED AND THE TEMPERATURE AND ALL THAT KIND OF LIKE REALLY GEEKY STUFF, THEY DO A GREAT JOB OF THAT.
