After (at least) two long years of finding a suitable location community in the valley, the former Street Sign Brewing Co. will finally open at 11:30 a.m. Friday.
San Fernando City Mayor Joel Fajardo, Councilman Antonio Lopez, and City Manager Brian Saeki will be present as the ribbon is cut.
Here’s more on the brewery from the press release:
San Fernando Brewing Company was established in November 2013, when the partners found a warehouse in the city of San Fernando.
With support from the city officials and the community, it took two years to come to fruition. Each of their beers have city-inspired names and their Senora Wheat features a historic variety of wheat that was originally grown in California in the 1800’s.
San Fernando Brewing Company is the only brewery in the country to revive the use of this grain in their beer, and they pride themselves on using local ingredients in all of their beers.
Prior to the inception of the brewery, co-owner Vic Chouchanian began home brewing for his neighbors and friends. With rave reviews and award winning beers he decided to team up with his brother, Joe Chouchanian, to form Street Sign Brewing Company; named after an actual street sign they used to build the scaffolding for their homebrew setup.
After much support from the city, they later became, and are proud to be called San Fernando Brewing Company.
You can enjoy a pint or taster of their Stoney Point Stout, Sonora Wheat, Wolfskill IPA, Royal Road Pale Ale, and their O’Melveny Red Ale while supplies last. In honor of their grand opening, San Fernando Brewing Company will be giving away free branded bottle openers to the first 500 customers.
The brewery is at 425 Park Ave., in San Fernando.
