The mission of First Fridays is to promote and support local artists and musicians by providing them with an outlet to showcase their work. Every first Friday night of the month, participating Bixby Knolls businesses will unite to promote local artists and musicians through extended operating hours. In doing so we hope to encourage a dialogue between businesses, artists and the community.

Some of the world’s greatest and smallest artisanal beer, cider, and mead makers will join us to meet festival attendees and share their stories and knowledge. You’d have to spend months and countless dollars for a chance to meet this many world-class brewers. We’ve saved you the trouble and the expense — they’ll all be on hand personally to talk about their work and to pour for you. And many will be creating special brews specifically for the event — you won’t be able to find them anywhere else!
Admission to the festival gets you our special-edition sample glass, plus the opportunity to meet more than 70 of the best beer, cider, and mead makers in the world. The cost of admission also goes to covering the costs of the festival, including bringing these incredible brewers in from all over the world. Additionally, a portion of admission ticket sales will go directly to our local nonprofit partner, Sharefest. (Seriously, check them out. They're awesome and they do so much for Los Angeles.)
Upon arrival, you'll have the opportunity to purchase drink tickets, the entire proceeds of which will go to Sharefest. Each ticket is worth a two-ounce pour, and the pricing is as follows: $5 for 5, or a special deal of $20 for 24.
Every producer listed will be on hand to talk about their creations. Never before have this many small-batch artisans been gathered together in one room — well, maybe at last year's festival. This is currently just a partial list, and we'll be updating it on Facebook, and on our website (sheltonbrothers.com/festival).
