Golden Road Returns to Vegan Beer Fest on May 17

Get your fill of great craft beer, vegan food, and live music at this year's Los Angeles Vegan Beer & Food Festival!

We are happy to announce that we'll be making our big return to this year's Los Angeles Vegan Beer & Food Festival taking place on May 17th. This is an event we look forward to every year, co-produced by our sister property Tony's Darts Away along with vegan super-blogger Quarry Girl and Nic Adler of The Roxy

The event features live music, a well-curated lineup of vegan eats, and of course -- craft beer! Golden Road's eager to share the spotlight with over 30 craft breweries this year including our friends at Automatic Brewing Co., Modern Times, and Firestone Walker to name a few. 

Vegan Beer Fest also marks the return of one of our favorite seasonal specialty beers: Almond Milk Stout! Due to popular demand, we are eager to report that we have upped production of Almond Milk Stout this year to a 50 barrel-batch, so keep an eye out for it at your favorite craft beer bars during this short (but sweet) season. 

Almond Milk Stout is 100% vegan and substitutes Califa Farms Almond Milk for the lactose traditionally used in a milk or sweet stout. A rich blend of chocolate malts and other specialty roasted malts contributes to this luxurious beer -- when you find out it's lactose free, you'd almost say "No Whey, Dude!" 

Tickets for the LA Vegan Beer & Food Festival are on sale NOW, so don't miss out! Check out part of the festival lineup on the poster below. Hope to see you there!

This week we are eager to announce the release of our 2020 IPA, the latest brand in our custom IPA series. Brewed with the Greenway 2020 river project in mind, this red IPA clocks in at 7.4% abv and is a unique offering in our hop-forward custom lineup. 2020 IPA features an interesting combination of hops including Warrior, Palisade, Cascade, Chinook, Simcoe and Ahtanum. This is our first beer featuring the relatively unknown Ahtanum hop varietal which has characteristics that mimic the citrus and floral notes of Cascade and the piney, earthiness of Chinook. The result is a medium-malt bodied red IPA with citrus and pine notes, a slightly tropical twist, and a west coast-style bitterness.

This beer was created in partnership with the Los Angeles River Revitalization Corportation (LA River Corp) to help raise awareness for their Greenway 2020 Project. Greenway 2020 will breathe life back into a 51-mile stretch of the LA River by revitalizing public spaces, encouraging local businesses, and maintaining the waterway. Seeing as though the river is practically in our back yard, our team was excited to collaborate with this organization which hopes to complete their project by the year 2020. The art on our can design was created by our friends at Lean Arch and is a representation of the project’s futuristic renderings.

Cans of 2020 IPA will hit retail locations starting February 1st and will be available in cans and on draught at The Pub at Golden Road starting Thursday, January 30th at 5p.m. $1 of every pint and 4-pack sold at The Pub will directly benefit the LA River Corp.

Proud Partners: Golden Road links up with the Derby Dolls


Welcome to the Doll Factory! We are proud to announce a new partnership with our longtime friends the L.A Derby Dolls for their 2014-2015 roller derby season. That’s right folks, for the first time since its inception in 2003, you’ll be able to knock back cans of craft beer while this league of tough women knock their opponents down for 18 bouts.

Tony was a supporter of this league early on, which is why we are beyond thrilled to be able to sponsor them today. Having been a season ticket-holder for many years, he has plenty of stories to tell you about the Derby Dolls’ earliest bouts -- from crazy venue changes to building out their resident Doll Factory in Historic Filipinotown.

Founded by Rebecca “Demolicious” Ninburg and Wendy “Thora Zeen” Templeton, the Derby Dolls are an organization of over 150 skaters and volunteers.

"We are excited to partner with Golden Road and bring their selection of quality craft beers to our track," said Rebecca "Demolicious" Ninburg, president of the Derby Dolls. “We’ve been mutual longtime fans of each other and are looking forward to a great season of sport and beer.”

Our team is pumped on this partnership and we hope you can come show your support all season long. Tickets are available online here

The season opener with Punky Bruisers and Pound Garden kicks off this Saturday, January 11th at The Doll Factory.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter & Instagram and don’t forget to keep up with the Derby Dolls on Facebook and Twitter. Use #hashtags: #goldenroadbrewing and #LADerbyDolls -- we want to see you there!
