Put these two new releases on your beer buying radar…
The first is Burbank’s Trustworthy and the second is from Inglewood adjacent Far Field.
Brewers are having a fun time naming their Italian pilsners and L.A. newcomer Far Field Beer Co. has a nod to Tony Soprano with their new beer…
Far Field Beer Co. opened on Saturday after months of doing to-go only and here is my report on the beers and the taproom…
Feller Hoppy Pilsner – very toasty and malt forward. Not much in the way of hoppiniess though. if sold as lager would work better for me.
Home Range IPA – quite dank. heavy bitterness. pine first and foremost. a little one note. many people ordered it but it lacked depth.
All Terrain Cream Ale – my favorite of the three. no head to it at all though. other than that it has a nice taste to it. a little refining and a little more body and it will be solid.
The taproom is a lovely little spot in the middle of a fast moving Rosecrans Avenue. It is tucked in between auto shops, thankfully they have a nice big sign to guide you in. big roll up doors to a small outdoor patio. long reverse shaped L bar with comfy wooden stools. 7 beers on tap on opening day with 3 IPAs, a hoppy pilsner, a cream ale, a California Common and a Berliner Weisse. 10 barrels tucked into the corner might already be in use though I saw no stouts on the menu. Nice metalwork touches on the upstairs that match the design of the logo and merch. Though the second floor seemed empty at present.
There is another brewery opening that escaped my radar until now, Far Field Beer Company has been selling to-go since April in Lawndale.
Wife and husband duo of Regan and James Bardeen plan to open their taproom in June. Initial cans started with an IPA, a hoppy lager, and a Berliner Weisse, black IPA and a cream ale.
