The LA Beer Bloggers are back with meeting number two at Sunset Beer Co. This week’s meeting included some new faces as well as special guest speakers from Angel City Brewery. Dieter Foerstner, Ashley Todd, and Jennifer Barry were not only kind enough to offer their time and knowledge, but also supplied some samples of their flagship beers for the LA Beer Bloggers to taste, Eureka Wit as well as their West Coast IPA.
Aside from the mingling, networking, bottle sharing, and commercial beer news, we also had the opportunity to try some various home brews. Simon Ford brought some of his awesome sours, John Verive supplied a Saison and Wit Beer, and I brought a Barrel Aged Roggenbock.
The fine folks at Sunset Beer Co were amazing. If you haven’t been down to this quaint and chill bottle shop off of Sunset Blvd in Echo Park, try to make it out during LA Beer Week. It’s one of the coolest venues in LA, and the format is great for all those looking to bottle window shop and/or have something on tap. Special thank you to Sunset Beer Co for hosting our second meeting as well as our own Kelly Erickson, from Girls Who Like Beer, for organizing the location. Special thanks also to Angel City Brewery for taking the time to talk to the LA Beer Bloggers. Finally, thank you to Aften and Sierra Nevada for donating the bottles of Brux for the event.
