It can be a fun game to predict which breweries might collaborate on a beer. I certainly did not have Tarantula Hill and Mumford on my collaboration bingo card. But here they are with a Beastie of a hazy IPA complete with a dangerous robot.
Passing on some good news that leads to six months of where you can help. Tarantula Hill Brewing Co. in Thousand Oaks has announced the first round of donations from their 4S3 Golden Ale. The money raised “has been given to Borderline Strong, the entity Borderline owner Brian Haynes created to benefit students seeking scholarships to pursue their dreams! Borderline Strong plans to give 12 scholarships every year to those wanting to pursue trades and activities that were close to the hearts of those who perished in the Borderline tragedy.”
So, whatever is raised from the sale of this beer in the next six months will go to their next (2) recipients. Pick-U a 4-pack.
There are some new breweries coming to the L.A. area in 2018 headlined (IMHO) by the Chinatown brewery / taproom of Highland Park Brewery.
But there are more in the pipeline that I will be visiting and reviewing, such as….
…and these are just a sample. There might be more in places as far flung as Pasadena, two new ones in Monrovia, literally right next to each other. One in Burbank, at least one in Long Beach.
