Craft beer isn’t just taking over the South Bay, it’s also invading the Valley. According to FoodGPS, newcomer San Fernando Brewing Company is currently up and running in the city of San Fernando.
Just off the 118 Freeway, San Fernando Brewing is a three-man operation with just as many beers on tap; this is one small brewery, at least for now. Luckily, their industrial space is nice and big, tucked away on Park Avenue, and it’s filled with a shiny new 15 barrel system in the back for brewing their three house beers — a pale ale, red ale, and a stout.
Up towards the rolling-door front, there’s a great casual craft beer space, full of hanging string lights and old wooden tables and chairs for enjoying a few pints. Chalkboard signage over the bar gives customers a chance to peruse the small menu, and apparently there’s even a popcorn machine.
San Fernando Brewing is the work of Ryan Rogers and Vic and Joe Chouchanian, and has been quietly serving for a little while now. Originally home brewers, the team is still learning up on the larger system and hopes to more permanently expand their beer lineup in the coming months. Hours run Thursday through Saturday, from noon until 10 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 7 p.m.
