A year after Angel City Brewing — formerly of Alpine Village near Torrance, of course, albeit under different ownership — reopened in the downtown Los Angeles arts district with a Music & Arts Festival they’re doing it all over again from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday.
The event will allow the brewery to showcase its newly-renovated Mezzanine and “a giant shed space” that will house the brewery’s performing arts presentations.
Fun fact: Angel City is only two blocks from the Little Tokyo/Arts District stop on the gold line, and is encouraging festival-goers to take advantage of the city’s public transportation by giving $1 off a pint to anyone who takes a bus, or the Metro.
Event highlights include:
A giant second anniversary toastbeginning at 1:30pm.
Numerous food trucks offering an urban beer picnic.
Brewer-led tours & beer tastings.
ACB canvas public painting project.
Theatrical performances by Frontierville.
An Angel City arcade will feature games such as ping pong, darts and board games.
Outdoor artisan bazaar with handmade accessories, thrift finds, and art prints.
Special beer releases including Imperial Tart Cherry, Barrel-Aged Rye Lager, Mexican-Style Cola Ale, French Sip, Imperial Chai Stout, and Oktoberfest, as well as the usual draft flavors including White Nite, Angeleno IPA, Eureka! Wit, and Gold Line Pilsner.
Ready for their closeup: Two of the three King Harbor Brewing co-owners, brewer Phil McDaniel and Tom Dunbabin, pose for Daily Breeze photographer Brad Graverson at their new brewery, which opens its doors to the public Saturday.

Saturday marks the first opportunity for most local beer drinkers to sample the forthcoming offerings from soon-to-open King Harbor Brewing, Redondo Beach’s first craft brewery (and before anyone comments or emails, venerable Redondo Beach Brewing Co. is a brewpub, not a craft brewer).
Select Beer Store in Redondo Beach will showcase a selection of beers from the fast-growing South Bay and Los Angeles craft brew industry as you can see from the above graphic, including King Harbor, which just saw its first-ever keg of beer head out the brewery’s doors this week.
