The 1880’s were and exciting decade for Los Angeles. The Southern Pacific Railroad was linking LA directly with the Eastern United States for the first time. Harvey Henderson Wilcox bought a 160 acre lot and named it Hollywood. The population of LA hit 50,000 and homeowners began settling in a neighborhood known as Angelino Heights.

In case you missed the big news, we're expanding our distribution to The Grand Canyon State...Arizona!

LOS ANGELES -- April 21, 2015 -- L.A.’s Golden Road Brewing and Southern California’s beloved environmental nonprofit, Heal the Bay, have teamed up with Simmzy’s Pub for the third annual unveiling of Heal the Bay IPA. This Earth Day (April 22), all three Simmzy’s locations will be privy to the first kegs and cans of summer’s favorite IPA before its market-wide launch May 1st.
Golden Road Brewing to sponsor the Echo Park Rising music festival Aug. 15-17
Let's flash back to a year ago -- to the last Echo Park Rising festival. I (Franny), along with our Market Manager Omar and our graphic designer Asif spent a great day meandering through all of the venues participating in that weekend's totally free and totally awesome music fest. I distinctly remember a recurring sentiment from that day: "Wouldn't it be awesome if Golden Road was involved in this?!?"
Flash Forward to today, when we can officially (and very enthusiastically) announce that Golden Road will be a proud sponsor of this year's Echo Park Rising happening all over Echo Park on August 15-17. This has been a project that our entire team has had a hand in; from marketing to public relations, sales, social media, and beyond. We are big proponents to local events, culture, and music and we thought "what better way than to serve local beer, too?"
For the uninitiated, Echo Park Rising takes place at multiple venues over three days including The Echo, TAIX, and Lot 1 Cafe. A complete list of participants can be found here. Golden Road will be the official beer of EPR and will be featured in their outdoor beer garden as well as inside TAIX's 321 Lounge which will be named 329 Lounge for the weekend!
But beer aside, EPR is all about the music. This year's lineup is bigger and better than ever and we cannot wait to boogie down to up-and-coming locals like Allah-Las, Together Pangea, and Wide Streets. Check out the full lineup here and stay tuned for some of our staff picks!
For a wider selection of Golden Road brews, visit our sister company Mohawk Bend where you can meet a few members of our team. They will be hosting live music during brunch hours from 9:30am-3pm on Saturday, Aug. 16.
Show us how you “Carry On” in your travels
We are strong believers of wanderlust here at Golden Road Brewing, which is why we’ve decided to partner up with our friends at HMSHost to craft a beer available at airports that embodies the spirit of the American traveler. Meet Carry On Citrus Ale, a fruit-forward ale with citrus from Southern California that is clean and bright with a balanced Pacific Northwest hop profile to complement its medium-bodied malt backbone. Carry On Citrus Ale will be available in 16-ounce single cans at 30 select airports as a pre-flight refreshment for your next journey across the country!
To celebrate this new brew, we want you to win a trip to come see where Carry On’s adventure begins here at our brewery in sunny Los Angeles, California!
