In the past three years, countless local breweries with tasting rooms have popped up all over Los Angeles. The equation works again and again: an industrial space, visible fermentation tanks behind a friendly staffed bar, picnic tables, giant Jenga games, and food trucks parked outside. Throw in L.A.’s climate and you have a recipe for year-round, relaxed enjoyment of quality craft beer right from the source.

Pioneers such as Angel City, Smog City and Eagle Rock Brewery continue to serve up great beers in a fun atmosphere - they're still well worth a visit. The following breweries are continuing the tradition, bringing the neighborhood beer garden to Angelenos from the San Gabriel Valley to the South Bay.
