Los Angeles Times - - FOOD & DINING - — John Verive

Lovers of lo­cal craft beer won’t have to wait un­til Septem­ber for L.A. Beer Week; this year the nine-day cavalcade of tap-takeovers, beer din­ners and spe­cial events be­gins on June 20 and runs through June 28.

This year’s fes­ti­val kick­off at Ex­po­si­tion Park will fea­ture the 30 mem­ber brew­eries of the L.A. Brew­ers Guild, plus an­other 30 from across the coun­try, in­clud­ing Beach­wood Brew­ing, Smog City Brew­ing Co. and MacLeod Ale Brew­ing Co. The new venue means more space for beer, food trucks, games, mu­sic and ed­u­ca­tional pan­els. And there will be spe­cial events all week cater­ing to ev­ery­one from the ca­sual beer drinker to de­voted beer geeks.

Beer Week be­gan in 2009, or­ga­nized by Ryan Sweeney and Bran­don Brad­ford of Ver­dugo Bar, and Jay Baum and Den­nis Hartman.
