The Universe

May 12th is when you can have the luck of the stars with the new Beachwood beer release, Cosmic Lottery, with a hop blend of Strata, Mosaic, Citra, & Pahto. Plus that label is a colorful delight.

The End

Now I am not a huge fan of the multi-colors on this label but for a barrel-aged beer the name is just about perfect….

Sante Adairus has found a great saying to accompany their 2 year old beer with Wondrous Brewing which proves that you can still find a great beer name.


Angel City honors the past occupants of their brewery with Bridge Builder Hazy IPA.

Their DTLA Public House “was once formerly the John A. Roebling & Sons west coast warehouse, where they would manufacture steel cables to build some of the most iconic bridges across the country.”

Here are details on the beer, it “has an almost vanilla-like sweetness upfront, followed by pineapple, nectarines, fruit punch and strawberries with a full mouthfeel and a finishing tropical sweetness. Brewed in the very same warehouse that used to build bridges, it’s safe to say this brew really “bridges” the gap between our building’s past & present.”

Stronger and Together

Project Barley in Lomita has a dynamic duo of new beers that celebrate women in the brewing industry, Stronger Hazy IPA & Together Clear IPA. Both are amazing and super yummy!!

Portion of the proceeds goes back to the Pink Boots Society. So get a 4-pack of both.


Eagle Rock Brewery has unveiled their 2022 Pink Boots collaboration. Here is the beers mission statement, “We love collaborating with the ladies of Pink Boots and fiercely support their desire to assist, inspire, and educate women in the fermented/alcoholic beverage industry.”

And here is the beer description, “Bootsy is a West Coast IPA  that is bright and clean, with crispy tropical notes. Coming in at 6.3% ABV, this is the perfect beer to ring in the warmer weather!”

Gold and Vanilla

Frogtown Brewery has some new releases to put on your radar. They have been leaning into Tiki themed beers and have a Beachcomber Golden Ale, or if you are looking for a different spin on the classic cream ale, you can pick up their vanilla-fied cream ale.

The Green Fairy

Firestone Walker has just upped their barrel aging game by not only finding absinthe barrels but then creating a beer that those barrels could affect in a new and interesting way. Plus cognac, rye whiskey and bitters barrels as well.
