The Beer: Unity | Available in bottles and on draught at select retailers

Unity, the official beer of LA Beer Week will make its return this year in a new all-California iteration. This year’s Unity, brewed at Eagle Rock Brewery as a collaborative brew day with members of the Los Angeles County Brewers Guild, will be a pale ale with citrus. Ingredients include California-Select malts donated by Country Malt Group, local fruit, and California-grown Centennial and Gargoyle hops (the latter of which is a rarer varietal native to California). This 5.5% abv pale will be an easy-drinking offering with a balanced hop bite accentuated by citrus. *Expect to see Unity in both draught and 22-ounce bottle formats distributed by Stone Distribution. (Please see Unity beer label attached)

The (Friendly) Competition: Meeting of the Guilds | Thursday, 9/25/2014, 6-10pm

The Los Angeles County Brewers Guild will host guest breweries from the San Diego Brewers Guild and San Francisco Brewers Guild at the Meeting of the Guilds event taking place at Mohawk Bend in Echo Park. Each Guild will take over 15 taps to champion the offerings of California beer as well as to engage in a friendly competition to earn beer week bragging rights and the coveted Golden Keg. The event was built around a similar event which took place during this year’s SF Beer Week and will be the second in what will hopefully become a traveling tradition.
