Los Angeles Aleworks
Where we've featured it
LA Aleworks has been in the astroturf game far longer than most spots in LA - and their excellent, fake grass-covered patio has reopened with picnic tables, umbrellas, Edison bulbs, and a lot of great beer - like Hop Season, a new, really fantastic fresh-hopped pale ale. Reservations here.
LA Aleworks might have a relatively small selection of cans to-go, but this Hawthorne brewery makes a wide range of really great beer. From light options, like a beautiful, crispy red lager called Dead Cowboy, to IPAs like the Star Kitten (a very bitter West Coast-style), to excellent heavy and barrel-aged stuff - including Jazz Forever, a blend of barleywine, stout, and bock aged in bourbon barrels.
