When Imperial Western Beer Co. re-opens at Union Station it will be with a new name, and I gotta say, not digging the change…

Homebound Brewhaus. Combining Dodger baseball with train travel, I guess. But it lacks the stature that Imperial Western has as a name. Plus the brewhaus just adds a tacky aspect to it. And don’t get me started on the logo. Home plate turned upside down? You can say that the baseball seams also could be tracks but that is a stretch.

To me, this looks like the first step in the sports bar-ification of the space. Even worse is that Homebound has quite a different meaning now, and people are trying to safely stray from home, not shelter longer.
