As of late, there seem to be so many bars and breweries opening up in the Downtown LA area, that it can be a bit difficult narrowing it down to just one, especially in the Arts District. If you frequent that area often, then you’re probably familiar with the Downtown based brewery that sits squarely on the corner of Alameda and Traction, in the midst of culture and cool, aka Angel City Brewery. This brewery features a 19-tap bar, and serves an ever-changing roster of newly inspired beer and classic fan favorites, including Angel City IPA and Angel City Pilsner. Which are both great. I mean, if you find yourself venturing to a brewery, it usually means that you’re there for the craft beer, bites, or maybe even the ambience, because people + beer. What more can you ask for? Perhaps a variety of entertaining events, and that’s where Angel City Brewery falls into place, because they’re here and serving a lot more than just beer! In fact, they host a diverse lineup of engaging, educational, and always fun events ranging from Trivia, to board games, beer education, BINGO and many more. Now all you hop-heads and loyal attendees have a lot to look forward to every single day of the week.
