Anniversary Report – Far Field’s 1st

A great way to finish July. That is the main takeaway from the 1st Anniversary party at Far Field Beer Co.

It took a year but I finally was able to have a drink at Far Field in their second floor space with pretty seafoam green tables and barrels that allowed one (me) to look over the 1st anniversary crowd that arrived to celebrate the brewery among the car repair shops on Rosecrans.

And to start with, Hyper Link their dry hopped pilsner.  The pils pours a darker yellow color with an aggressive hop hit that the style holds up pretty well without tipping out of balance. The draft list was nice and big for the occasion with an oyster stout, Italian pilsner as well as their new Triple IPA, Triangularity.

The brewery section was open as many vendors were open from warm cookies to flowers to tea were on hand.  The music was pumping forcing conversation up a notch and dogs and kids were underfoot lending a backyard family gathering feel to the sweltering day.

The beer line was a bit slow but never aggressively long though a second line might have helped as would an ixnay on flights, of which I saw many.

TRIPA was my second choice.  Both silky and spiky at the same time.  The alcohol was softened though it did have a tiny touch of butteryness to it underneath along with a tropical fruit note as well.

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.”


San Gabriel’s Ogopogo will be hitting the one year mark and on September 21st, they will be celebrating their mythical creatures beer list. Follow their social media for ticketing information and beer information.

1 for Simmzy’s

In a little over a week, the parking lot of the Burbank Simmzy’s will be turned into 1st Anniversary World. So after work on Friday, be that earlier or later, head over to see what beer surprises will be on tap.

Mik is 1

Mikkeller DTLA will celebrate their 1st anniversary tomorrow, a scant two weeks before my birthday. But I seriously doubt any of the special beers that have been announced will last that long or even just a couple of days.
