LABG Moves 7th LA Beer Week to June 20­28
LOS ANGELES​­­ March 3, 2015

­­After their great success as the new organizers of LA
Beer Week last fall, the Los Angeles County Brewers Guild has decided to move the dates of
the 7th annual LA Beer Week to June 20­28. Festivities
begin on Saturday, June 20th with the LA Brewers Beer
Week Kick­Off festival at its new location at Exposition Park.
Entering its 7th year, LA Beer Week is comprised of
over 200 events spread about the county at various bars,
restaurants, retailers, and breweries. This year’s kick­off
event will feature over 70 breweries ­­ 30 of which are
members of the LA Brewers Guild. The LA Beer Week
Events Committee, led by committee chairman Thomas
Kelley (El Segundo Brewing Co.), are working to bring beer
fans an even bigger and better experience with an
expansive space adjacent to the iconic Los Angeles Coliseum. This new locale more than
doubles the capacity of last year’s kick­off event which saw approximately 1,250 people in Old
Chinatown Plaza.

The date change was born out of the guild’s interest to focus on a time of the year that
would fall within various summer activities and benefit craft breweries who are beyond
time­constrained during the fall season’s major beer events.
“It was always so hot in Los Angeles in September,” said LABG Vice President Laurie
Porter (Smog City Brewing). “We’re looking forward to a little June gloom.”

In addition to more space, guests can look forward to two stages featuring local music
and educational panels, a special VIP tent which will house specialty beers, and more space
for food trucks and vendors. A limited number of pre­sale tickets for the June 20th LA Brewers
Beer Week Kick­Off go on sale at noon on Friday, April 3rd.

General tickets go on sale at
noon on Friday, May 1st.
