Another big craft beer name is landing in greater Los Angeles this weekend, with the Saturday arrival of Lagunitas Brewing Company. The label has long planned to open a gigantic brewery in the foothills of the Angeles National Forest, and now the equally impressive tap room side of things is set to unveil on Saturday.

It’s important to note that this weekend’s opening is just phase one of the much larger overall footprint. Saturday’s taproom will be an expanding pop-up of sorts, operating Wednesday through Sunday from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. There will also be live music and food trucks, while the place’s full kitchen earns a complete build-out.

Still, Lagunitas’s most popular beers will be available to the public on property for the first time, including their standard IPA, plus Little Sumpin’, and Hop Stoopid among others. Guests will also be able to watch the ongoing construction as it happens, with the full finished taproom expected to be ready by August.
