Far Bar in Little Tokyo

“What better way to spend a sunny July Saturday afternoon then chilling out on our “urban oasis” as someone recently called it (patio) or rubbing shoulders in our little bar “where everyone knows your name” , while sipping on some great craft beer and eating tasty BBQ? Well last year we did an IPA Fest but this year we decided since there are so many great Summer Beers infused with fruit and herbs, IPA’s and Barrel-Aged Beers surrounding us..why limit ourselves? Let’s show some range! So were going to give you everything from a little 4% tart little Summer sipper to some high ABV big boy’s…ya dig!

Beachwood BBQ & Brewing One. Year. Anniversary Celebration
Beachwood BBQ and Brewing in Long Beach
Saturday July 7 @ 11:30am
“Beer is a regional specialty, a craft that reflects our tastes, philosophies, traditions and aspirations. It’s a temporal experience that takes weeks, months or even years of attention leading up to the moment that it’s savored, gulped down, revered or just plain forgotten. We are all lucky enough to live in a region full of craft beers that will not be forgotten. In fact they will continue to be duly noted on cell phones, laptops, paper scraps or just by a series of baffled expressions that signify beer geek transcendence. Southern California is a special place for beer and we at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing are privileged to be a part of an innovative, eclectic, uncompromising and truly exceptional community of breweries. As a tribute to all of their inspiration over the years, we’ve decided to celebrate our anniversary with a celebration of Southern California breweries. In addition, we’ll be debuting a special anniversary beer from our own Beachwood BBQ & Brewing brewmaster, Julian Shrago. Plus, special menu items and more…”

The featured beer is yet to be determined, but it will be a big brew for sipping on as you mentally prep yourself for Monday morning and the week ahead of you. In addition to learning about a new brew on Sundays, we’ll be offering a little bonus to accompany each Snifter Sunday’s beer.

Zymaster No. 2 Release Event
Steingarten LA in West LA
Tuesday July 24th
Anchor Brewing will be having a release party for Zymaster No. 2 Mark’s Mild. “Zymaster No. 2 is Anchor brewmaster Mark Carpenter’s interpretation of a traditional English dark mild. It is made from a single-temperature mash of English Maris Otter pale malt and crystal malts, a single addition of English Goldings hops to the boil, invert sugar, and our own ale yeast in an open fermenter. mark’s mild is a rich chocolate-brown
color with luscious malty sweetness and hints of chocolate, nuts, caramel, and toffee. Neither heavy, bitter, nor high in alcohol, it has a smooth, thirst-quenching finish that makes mark’s mild the ultimate sociable beer.”
Zymaster No. 1 was a really good one, so No. 2 should definitely be worth a try.
