Then you best head over to Alhambra and 38 Degrees for their blowout 4th anniversary bash.  The only caveat is that you have to come to Beer Belly tomorrow and tell me about it at my Summer Camp with Beer Belly.

the 4th of Blue Palms

So glad that this yearly tradition gets to continue, they throw a good party in Hollywood. So you should definitely get tickets (if available)…..

Here is the scoop from the Facebook page…“Sunday, August 12, 2012 from 12:00pm until 8:00pm

Open to the public, DD’s get in free! You only need a ticket if you want to drink festival beers outside.

Tickets will be $45 for 12 x 5oz tasters (with more tasters available for purchase at the fest). This also includes a complimentary Blue Palms logo’d glass. Ticket will be available on PayPal starting July 2, 2012

We are working on some snack food items that will be available at the fest as well as some good grillin’! Last year we roasted 2 steams (whole cow legs!) and the year before a whole pig, and we are changing it up a little this year, but keeping the same theme and we will be cooking up something special again!

Blue Palms will be open all day for food orders as well.

The festival will be out doors next door to Blue Palms as well as inside the restaurant. All are welcome to come in and join in the fun, but if you want to drink the festival beers, you need to purchase a wristband. “

# 4 for Hangar 24

Hangar 24’s turning 4 and we’d love to have you celebrate with us. Join us for a year that’s even better than the rest with more food, more music and a bigger variety of beer than ever before. We’ll also be releasing our surprise 4th Anniversary beer. The party’s sure to be great but what makes it even better is the support that we are able to provide to a local charity. Proceeds from our Anniversary Celebration will benefit the Childhood Cancer Foundation of Southern California.”


Year by Year I learn a little more Belgian/French thanks to The Bruery and their anniversary beers.

So far I have Papier, Coton and Cuir and now add Fruet! I am looking forward to trying many different versions of this beer because you know that the Bruery can’t just make one version.

If you are in the L.A. area you have many choices for the anniversary party. You can go classy at 38 Degrees for their fancy flight night. (They always do well with their flights) or you can head to Beer Belly like I will to try the latest and mispronounce the name.
