MacLeod Day – 5th Anniversary

The math is a little wonky but don’t tell MacLeod’s. For their 5th anniversary they will be pouring $3 pints all day.

Food and live screen printing of the MacLeod logo will be going on as well so head over to Van Nuys for some cask and non-cask English styled beers.

GT on the 5

Time really does fly by. If I had been forced to guess what anniversary that the Glendale Tap was next to celebrate, I would have not guessed correctly. It is 5.

And on October 19th, they will be turning up their jukebox, selling $1 pizza slices and pouring from a taplist that I cannot wait to see and will be monitoring the interwebs for.

In the Tap Lines for July 2017

June was tough. In a good way but I am glad that the big L.A. fests are in the rearview and I don’t feel like I am missing some cool event every ten minutes. Here is what will be going on this month…

~ e-visits to three breweries from Detroit. Batch Brewing, Lake Brothers and Motor City Brewing Works
~ special featured reviews of a random set of beers as I catch up from L.A. Beer Week
~ Heads-Up on Los Angeles Beer Events
~ Three suggested beers to buy this month. One light, one medium and one dark
~ A Book & A Beer reads George Lucas – A Biography
~ I will tap the Firkin and give my no holds barred opinion on the craft beer world.

Here are two events to get your July started in the Los Angeles craft beer world:
1) July 1st – Canada Day at Southland Beer
2) July 7th-9th – Bravery Brewing 5th Anniversary Weekend


Looks like the band is getting back together at the 5 year anniversary as Brux, a beer both wild and domesticated will be coming back with what appears to be a Harry Potter styled lion patronus charging into and off of the label.

You can head to this cool website about Brux at I Think About Beer to refresh your memory.

Sunset 5

Maybe October 22nd is an auspicious day to start selling craft beer. Not only does Southland Beer celebrate that day but so is Sunset Beer Co.!

The Echo Park beer stop is throwing a 5th Anniversary Party. To pique your interest they have been hoarding some kegs so expect what they call a “wild” tap list. Considering some of the beer events they have thrown recently, that could have some really rare treats a week before Halloween.
