The City’s Largest Craft Beer Brewery
We don’t want to get you too excited.
But there’s a new brewery in town. And it’s big. And it’s craft-y. And it’s... well, those are the
two main things. It’s big and it’s craft-y.
Say hello to Golden Road Brewing
, a giant new indie-beer factory in Atwater Village, launching this
Sunday with suds and grub, and filling your growlers with beer after that.
Again, not to get you too wound up, but what you’re dealing with here is the city’s largest manufacturer
of craft beers, a three-barn outfit that will be pumping out 20,000 barrels of brew this year alone. (The
folks behind it are from Mohawk Bend in Echo Park, Tony’s Darts Away in Burbank and Dogfish Head in
Delaware, so they know their hops.)
If you want to come by this Sunday to say hi, they’ll be premiering their first two beers, Golden Road
Hefeweizen and Point the Way IPA ($20 gets you a glass and three pours). Plus, there’ll be food trucks and
special guests from other breweries (you know what that means: beards).
But if you can’t make it this weekend, you’ll want to pop in starting Monday to fill up a few growlers.
And in the coming months there’ll be a restaurant and tasting room.
This is all assuming you like beer.
