There’s still more beer heading for LA’s ever-changing river corridor, according to the LA Times.
Per the print publication, new arrival Boomtown Brewery is well on its way to reality, hosting an open house tomorrow on Jackson Street, not far from Angel City. Kegs of their beers, including a Belgian white and a hybrid pale ale, are already making their way into tap lines around town, though the Boomtown taproom itself is still being built out.
When all is said and done this fall, Boomtown plans to offer patio space, a bottling line, and even a barrel-aging program within its warehouse-y confines, with the taproom itself holding communal tables, pool tables, and more.
Of course, all this incoming craft beer — Boomtown, indeed — is not without controversy. Boyle Heights has had a love-hate affair with several new names on that side of the water, with both Dry River Brewing and Indie Brewing Co. landing warehouse locations, sometimes to the chagrin of neighbors.
On the Arts District side, Mumford Brewing is up and running already, joining longtime Angel City Brewery and the massive upcoming Iron Triangle Brewing, to say nothing of the aptly-named Arts District Brewing Co., which is Cedd Moses-backed and will feature beers from a former Pizza Port brewmaster.
