I was distressed to learn recently that LA’s Golden Road Brewing would be retiring their Heal the Bay IPA, one of my local favorites (they still make Wolf Among the Weeds IPA, BTW).
Still, the Atwater Village brewery will also introduce a semi-replacement dubbed Might as Well IPL, described as an IPA-style lager.
Both will be available for tasting Thursday, as well as their Get Up Offa That Brown, 329 Lager, a rare rum barrel aged porter, Almond Milk Stout and their Hefeweizen.
And if you buy a Golden Road beer, you get to keep the pint glass at the Alpine Village event.
I was glad to learn that Heal the Bay’s seasonal run is coming to an end, not the brew entirely. (Whew).

Counting the days until Friday when Oktoberfest cranks up at Alpine Village near Torrance and other Southern California locations?

When Dudes’ Brewing first cranked up its canning line last spring an off-site tasting room in one of the Beach Cities was mooted.
A year later, the dudes at Dudes’ announced a tasting room would open around Independence Day.
But the Fourth of July came and went without so much as a pour.
But Dudes’ Brewing will finally open a 13-handle tap room Sept. 12 that will include $3 pints of their excellent Session Pale Air and a new “never before sampled IPA,” which presumably won’t pack quite the punch of their Double Trunk DPA.
Even better, it’s right around the corner and down the street from Monkish Brewing and Smog City.
