Golden Road Brewing will celebrate the grand opening of the brewery’s new pub with 16 ounce cans that feature iconic images of Los Angeles. Each can contains 16 ounces of beer (most cans only contain 12 ounces of beer).
Twenty four L.A. County Whole Foods Markets and a few select bottle shops will carry six packs of Golden Road’s two flagship beers, Golden Road Hefeweizen and Point the Way IPA.
“We want to change the way people buy craft beer in L.A. County,” says Meg Gill, president and co-founder of Golden Road Brewing in Atwater Village.

Angel City Brewing, the award-winning local microbrewery is moving to its new location in Downtown Los Angeles. Michael Bowe, Founder, President and Masterbrewer, announced that they have signed a lease for the historic John A Roebling Building located at 216 S Alameda St. in the heart of the Downtown Arts District. With over 27,000 square feet and 50 parking spaces, the brewery is poised to become the dominant craftbrewery in its new vibrant urban setting. “While we are anxious to get back into production filling keg and bottle orders for our distributors, we also plan to incorporate a beer tasting area, gift shop and music venue.”
Michael started Angel City Brewing in 1997 after winning the “California Hombrewer of the Year” award in 1995 and 1996. In 2004 he purchased the Alpine Village Brewery in Torrance, on Ebay. Formerly a general contractor, Michael lovingly restored this classic German built brewery and added a bottle filler. “I brewed every batch of beer that came out of that brewery and I still, after all these years love to make beer.”
The German built brewery, originally located in Alpine Village, is the oldest microbrewery in all of Southern California originally installed in 1988. With a yearly capacity of over 12,000 barrels, the new brewery plans to expand into the new space by adding new fermenters and serving tanks.“I’m excited about making and serving new and unique beers on-site at the brewery. Nothing tastes better or fresher than a beer poured right from the serving tank.”
It shows, Angel City Brewing has won Seven Gold and Two Silver Medals at the “Los Angeles International Beer Competition” the last two years.“My vision for Angel City Brewing is about being located in Downtown Los Angeles, I think a great city deserves a great brewery and we’re hoping to become that.”
