2018: Looking back on the Year in Beer

It’s hard to believe that 2019 is just around the corner – January still seems like just yesterday! As we prepare for the year to come, allow us a moment to look back on 2018 and remember everything that happened here at Angel City Brewery.

We turned the brewery into a rock climbing gym

And nobody died!

So what’s coming up for 2019? Well, we’ve got a few things up our sleeve – a new beer garden, a few new events, and of course some new beers coming up. But if you want to join in on the fun, the best way is to come check out our No Cover New Years Party, and be here right when it starts at midnight!
