Former Alpine Village brewery marks grand opening in downtown LA Saturday

Angel City Brewing, which called Alpine Village near Torrance home for more than two decades, will mark its grand opening this weekend with a music and arts festival.

Angel City was evicted from Alpine Village in 2010 and reopened downtown the following year, but is now under new ownership and offers nine reformulated beers after “a year of building and brewing.”

“We’ve been looking forward to this day for a long time now,” said brewery director Alan Newman. “This event is a celebration not only of the brewery’s journey but of the culture and spirit of the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District.

The day-long festival starts with a mass toast to celebrate the brewery’s rebirth and is followed by seven bands.

There’s also food trucks, brewery tours and an art exhibit titled “In Your Face: How Artists Transformed LA’s Urban Landscape.”

Angel City is just two blocks from Union Station, so festival goers can leave the car (and designated driver) at home.
