ANGEL CITY BREWERY IN DTLA’S ARTS DISTRICT SERVES UP GUACAMOLE AND SRIRACHA INSPIRED BEERS

20150818_191935Angel City Brewery and Public House is located inside the historic John A. Roebling Building at the corner of Alameda and Traction in the rapidly expanding Arts District.  Forget about the beer for a moment, the building is quite the attraction.  It dates back to 1913 when it was a wire works factory.  John A. Roebling designed the

Right now, the brewery is serving up two limited edition beers.  The first is the Srirachelada.  It’s their spin on the classic Michelada, made with tomato juice, Sriracha, lime juice, agave, pickled banana pepper juice and Worcestershire Sauce. It comes in what they call “sociably spicy” and “seriously spicy.”

They are also serving up their Avocado Ale, a guacamole-inspired beer.  This year’s batch of Avocado Ale used approximately 37 pounds of avocados.  It took 4 employees 3 hours just to prep the avocados and cilantro.  It’s brewed with garlic, lime juice, red pepper and honey.

This is a great place to meet friends and have a beer (or two).  The former loading docks have been transformed into a beer hall.  They have board games and dart boards.  I really like that outside food is always welcome.  So go grab something from one of the neighborhood restaurants and bring it in to eat.  The brewery parking lot has become a hot spot for food trucks, with one parked outside nearly every night. Angel City Brewery is open 7 nights a week and they have full roster of weekly events.  They also offer tours Thursday through Sunday.
