angelcityfestA 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.

Event highlights include:

  • A giant second anniversary toast beginning 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.
