So what exactly does that mean? From today through October 25 various Los Angeles and OC restaurants will feature beer tastings, pairings, meet-the-brewer events, home-brewing demos and other beer-related activities. Then, on the October 24, the festival wraps up with the L.A. Beer Week Festival where 70+ craft and artisan breweries will pour their wares, many of which are special releases and esoteric beers. Hot damn. Tix for the final soiree cost $40 for unlimited 4 oz. pours of beer (note tickets must be purchased in advance and will not be sold at the door), and while food isn't included, it will be for sale from Patina Catering.
