The Los Angeles Craft and Artisanal Beer Appreciation League (created by local beer aficionados Ben Ling of Pure Luck, Alex Macy of Bottle Rock in Downtown, Bob Kunz of Father’s Office, Hot Knives and Kevin Kansy of Artisanal Ales) will be throwing its very first Craft Beer Fest L.A. on May 9 at the Echoplex.
For the $30 price of admission you can partake of 26 hand-crafted beers from a dozen of the best California brewers like Craftsman, Lost Abbey and Telegraph all day. And not only that but that 30 bucks covers everything during the 7-hour beer fest — the burritos from the Burrito Project, vegan food from Pure Luck, beer and cheese pairings, live music and brewery roundtables with renowned brewers.
Wayy more than your money’s worth and it all goes to benefit 826LA, a non-profit tutoring center. But I think the huuugest selling point for me has to be the ale cupcakes and the stout gelato from Scoops. Yummy!
They say that tickets will be available online but I haven’t found out just where yet. Pat at Eating LA, who first posted about the event, said that they will probably announce how to get tix soon so keep an eye out on the Echoplex site or LA CABAL. If anything they will also sell them at the event. I can’t wait I can’t wait I can’t wait!
UPDATE: Tickets can now be purchased on Ticketweb here.
EVENT: SATURDAY, MAY 9 from 2 to 9pm
