This past Saturday Ashley and I went to Drink Eat Play’s annual Los Angeles Beer Festival, held on the famed Paramount Studios movie lot in Hollywood. Only in Los Angeles can you taste-test beer on the streets of a fake New York movie set!
The LA Beer Festival debuted back in 2009 and regularly attracts more than 8,000 beer-lovers from all over town. More than 85+ beer vendors participate, including big name brewers such as Sam Adams, Shock Top, and Blue Moon, as well as local favorites like Eagle Rock Brewery, El Segundo Brewing, and Venice Beach Ales.
Each participating brewer offers unlimited 4-ounce pours for two sessions, the first which runs from 12-3 p.m. and the second from 5-8 p.m. A stage for local bands and DJs is set up and more than a dozen food trucks also take part in the festival.
Food trucks, movie sets, and unlimited BEER! How could you not want to go to this?! It’s like Christmas!
After a few drinks it was time to pose on the sets, beer in hand of course!
We picked up some sweet visors on the way.
Tickets to the LA Beer Festival are about $43 per session, and designated driver tickets are also available for around $15 (although that sounds way less fun!).
Next year Ashley and I will be attending in our beermaid outfits!
