Angel City Brewery

Angel City Brewery

Angel City Brewery is proud to tough things up a bit and work below the glossy surface in a city recognized more for its glitz than its grit. Their home in the Los Angeles Arts District not only serves as the brewery and a canvas but is also the heart of a rebirth for the city's musicians, hustlers, and artisans. 

Angel City was established in 1997 and rose to prominence in the Los Angeles craft beer market by introducing traditional small-batch craft brewing to the growing L.A. Arts District. You will get a wide collection of beer which are available all year around. They also have seasonal style beers like Avocado Ale, Bridge Builder, Perry Ale, Tamarind Gose, and many more. Angel City is also popular for its street art decorating the historic buildings like the JR's stunning image from The Wrinkles of the City series and Colette Miller's Angel Wings.
