Rare Beer Tastings at The Yard in Santa Monica

Thirsting for a rare ale?  You don’t have to go all Indiana Jones, around LA on ropes and vines!  The Yard in Santa Monica is making it easy for you to find elusive brews with their Beer Freek series of rare beer tastings.

Meeting on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month through May, this event gives connesieurs and newbies alike the chance to sample beers they might not find anywhere else.

To wrap up the series on May 11, The Yard will be raffling samples of Narke’s Stormaktsporter, a very rare Swedish porter.

To compliment each tasting, Top Chef competitor Chef Chris “CJ” Jacobsen will prepare a dish inspired by the brews on tap that night.
