I fondly remember the Scholastic Book Fairs during grade school and now there is a second Adult Book Fair this time at Mount Lowe Brewing in Arcadia featuring Octavia’s Bookshelf and Underdog Book Store.

There will be “book readings, “drunk” Q&A with the authors, an art show and auction, a book swap and beer and book pairing and so much more.”  

You just might end up with both a 4-pack of beer and books.

Before 2016 is finalized in the books, we need to talk about another new brewery that opened up in December over in Arcadia.  Mt. Lowe Brewing Company started welcoming visitors to their tap room.

Their website lists six beers currently.  Blonde, Hef, “ale” IPA, red and porter.

The incline railroad and old-timey touched up photos lend a nice community feel and I hope to ride the Gold Line out to their spot in 2017.
