Looks like a new brewery is landing in Lakewood, Syncopated Brewing.
It is a side project of Dutch’s Brewhouse (which I have yet to visit, but it is on the list). I am intrigued by the beer name Lettuce and Vodka and Simcoe and glad to see a brown and red ale on their beer list.
As per usual, I will post more after a visit.
The Brewers Association releases their annual, Fastest
Growing Breweries List. I went down the
list with us Angelenos in mind and found two breweries at the tail end of the
Frogtown Brewery which is tucked down side streets just off of
Fletcher near the 5 Freeway landed at 43 and then right behind it is a Long
Beach brewery, but not the one that I or you probably expected. Dutch’s BrewHouse.
I have visited Frogtown a couple of times and they can their
blonde and IPA’s but I did not peg them for having had a big growth spurt but
then again, I had not heard of most of the breweries on the list which probably
speaks to the fact that the really small are enjoying the biggest gains in the
current low growth time.
I guess I will need to add Dutch to my list in addition to
Ambitious Ales for my next Long Beach visit and see what they are doing right.
