Cask and Ye Shall Receive: MacLeod Ale Real Ale Festival

LA craft beer drinkers may think they know what Cask Ale (aka Real Ale) is, but in reality most of us don’t know as much as we think we do. Hint: Casks are not simply a novel dispensing method in which additional ingredients are added to an already fermented and finished beer, despite the popularity of their use as just that on the local beer scene.

LA Beer Kickoff Festival

The time has come once again to gear up for LA Beer Week! To launch this year’s festivities, the Los Angeles County Brewers Guild has banded together to curate the LA Brewers Beer Week Kick-Off festival taking place on Saturday, September 20, 2014. The LABG decided to switch things up a little this year to create an event all their own.

Please Note - No brewery is required to fill your growler so don't get bent out of shape if someone says no. This is all still flexible, new territory for everyone and folks are developing their policies. Also, remember that sometimes individual employees may get things wrong. Oh and don't forget - a clean growler is a happy growler! Keep some electrical tape on hand to obscure logos as well.
