Yes, they call it a week but no one seems to mind those extra days! LA Beer week is back and the South Bay brewers and restaurants are playing a big part in the celebration.
You’ll find beer tastings, tap takeovers, and special events taking place around the South Bay on almost all of the 11 days of the “week” long celebration.
You can find all of the details – for the South Bay and the rest of LA – over at the LA Beer Week website. I love the way they have all the events categorized by date, location, and type of event (tap takeovers vs beer & food, for example).
But to make things easy for ya, we’ve summarized all of the South Bay events below. You’re welcome!
