One Radiant

I have been a fan of Radiant Beer™ Co. . I noticed that I buy their brightly colored and positive vibe named beers whenever I see them Now they are heading towards their first anniversary in early February.

No big ticketed bash but instead a “weekend-long birthday party to celebrate. The team at Radiant has new beer releases and nostalgic birthday party activities lined up just for the occasion.”

More info on the festivities, “Rotating food trucks will offer special menu items throughout the weekend, along with a surprise collaboration that is yet to be announced. In addition to new beer releases and specialty treatments, guests can look forward to a cask tapping, a unique glassware sale, live music, merchandise offers, limited supply surprise gifts, and expanded offerings of the frozen treats that fans near and far have come to love at Radiant.”

Unity-toberFest

News dropped yesterday from The L.A. County Brewers Guild

Here are the details straight from the Guild…

“Members of the Los Angeles County Brewers Guild came together for the first time in nearly two years for the 2021 Unity collaboration brew hosted by Common Space Brewery. Unity, the annual Guild brew originally created by LABG co-founders Eagle Rock Brewery, is traditionally brewed in the spring to commemorate our annual LA Beer Week. Due to the pandemic however, the last time Unity was brewed was back in May 2019. While hosting LA Beer Week this summer wasn’t in the cards, the Guild wanted to finally come together so that we could begin to rebuild the strong sense of community and camaraderie that make our L.A. beer scene so great.

Host brewery Common Space Brewery will be releasing 16-ounce four packs of Unity on Thursday, October 7 at their Hawthorne tasting room. This 6% abv Hoppy Pilsner marks the first lager iteration of Unity and will be available in cans and on draft at select retail locations. Check out the list below for LABG members and local craft beer retailers who will have Unity available.

But wait! There’s more! To celebrate the release of this brew, we will also be hosting the LABG Unity Oktoberfest at Common Space on Saturday, October 30, 2021. We’ve missed sharing beers with our community and while we still weren’t ready to go all out this summer with our usual events, we hope that you can join us for this intimate outdoor tasting event featuring 30 independent craft breweries, entertainment, and local food vendors.”
