I stopped in at Highland Park Brewery in Los Angeles, California. For dinner I enjoyed beet salad and cauliflower tacos and paired with their Timbo Pils. Let’s talk about Timbo Pils. I love this beer. It’s a Pilsner so it’s a bit lighter than IPAs. It’s fresh. At the same time it has hop notes of West Coast IPAs. It’s simply toned down a bit. Plenty of flavor, just not in your face. So fine.
I stopped in at 6th & La Brea Brewery in Los Angeles, California. I enjoyed their Get Buzzed Golden Ale which is delicious with tremendous honey sweetness. I paired their Brussels Sprouts appetizer and Kale salad with the beer for an absolutely fabulous dinner.
I stopped in at Smog City Brewing Company in Los Angeles, California. Unable to decide on a specific beer I went with a flight. Good decision! Coffee Porter is tasty – coffee – medium dark – smooth – rich. Kumquat Saison is fruity but not too fruity – slightly tart – easy to drink. White Peach Saison is tart, sour, delicious. Sabre-Toothed Squirrel hoppy amber is smooth with a bite! and Smog City IPA is a solid IPA. Great breadth of beers. Tap room also has great vibe.
I stopped in at Monkish Brewing Company in Los Angeles, California. After a conversation with the bartender I decided to try Subliminal Sequel. This blonde ale is nicely hopped and crisp. I enjoyed it with some of their complimentary pretzels while wandering through the brewery/tap room. Also watched some basketball and enjoyed the vibe. Great beer and great place to stop and enjoy.
I stopped in at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, California but only had time for a Point The Way IPA. It had enough hops to satisfy me but not too much to keep someone from drinking several. This was a very good beer. I regret not having time for a meal. The menu looked very good and the atmosphere was lively.
