New Google Maps leads to brewery discovery

Being the geek that I am, I signed up yesterday to preview the new Google Maps.

Today I got my invitation, so I quickly checked it out.

While going through the tour of the new web app, I decided to search for “Breweries, San Bernardino County,” since I’ve been working on a map of Southern California breweries for our sister blog, Beer Goggles.

While searching, I found a new brewery…thank you Google Maps!

While not technically in the Inland Empire, we occasionally do cover events in La Verne, and the La Verne Brewing Co. appears to have opened up just shy of a month ago.

The brewery currently has four beers on tap, with an IPA in the wings. Also coming is tapping of a small batch keg Fridays beginning in June.

La Verne Brewing Co. is at 2125 Wright Ave., #C-15, La Verne, near the Auto Club Raceway and Brackett Field.

The tasting room is open 4 to 8:30 p.m. Fridays and noon to 8 p.m. Saturdays. Eventually the tasting room will also be open from 4 to 8:30 p.m. Thursdays.

For updates, follow ’em on Twitter and “Like” ’em on Facebook.

Update: According to this Facebook post, the brewery is now open from 4 to 8:30 p.m. Thursdays.
