Zehn Time

No tension, just Ten as in Zehn at Enegren Brewing. August 21st

“It has been 10 years since we started this journey in a 1000sqft a 3 barrel brewery serving only 4 taster glasses of beer to each confused individual that stumbled upon our door. Things have changed! And it’s time to celebrate! Mark your calendars and grab your lederhosen because we’re throwing an epic ZEHN FEST complete with German Music, German Food, a ferris wheel and our 10TH Anniversary Zehn Fest Pilsner served in one of a kind Maximilian Steins!”

LB Locals Only

Consider my head turned. This is a lovely list of breweries for those like me who are looking into attending a beer festival again. Plus it has an added benefit of having teo breweries listed that I have not had beer from.

McFerren Fund

From the Los Angeles County Brewers Guild…

“The Los Angeles County Brewers Guild (LABG) is proud to announce the formation of the McFerren Fund for the advancement of women in craft beer in memory of LABG Founding Member Rob McFerren who passed away in December 2020. Rob McFerren was a pioneer of the L.A. craft brewing industry, founding Wolf Creek Brewery and Restaurant in 1996 with his wife and co-founder Laina McFerren. Rob was an incredible advocate for women in the beer industry. His immense support of his wife Laina as a board member and President of our Guild was palpable. As a proud father of two daughters, Rob’s devotion to the empowerment of women came from the most genuine place. We could not think of a better way to honor his memory than to create a special fund within our nonprofit dedicated to curating professional networking and development opportunities for women in the beer industry.

The McFerren Fund will be a special financial allocation earmarked in our organization’s budget for professional networking and development programming. Donations are accepted and sponsorship opportunities will also become available. An initial goal of the fund is to work hand-in-hand with the LABG’s mission to increase efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the craft brewing industry.”

Festivals are Back

Even the most casual of beer fans has probably noticed that a few beer festivals have started to make their way onto calendars.

That means that I will start posting about the events that look to be worthy of the entrance fee.

It does not mean that I know of their Covid precautions however. If I find any FAQs, I will point then out. I will endeavor to add more information than normal as we transition back to enjoying beer from a taster glass in a park.

Having just recently achieved fully vaccinated status, I am just now dipping my toe into travel plans and if there is a movie I want to see after a year plus hiatus from being inside an auditorium. Which means, I am still hesitant about bring around a beer-load of people, even if outside.

Take care out there.
