Cellador Ales is proud to once again partner with the Los Angeles County Brewers Guild to bring you the Friends Fest on Saturday, June 18, 2022 to mark the return of LA Beer Week!
Why did we drop the “Sour” from the festival name? Because the newer and bigger festival we’ve got in store for you overflows the bounds of “sour” beer! We’ll be hosting a diverse group of our very best producer friends to serve up some stellar barrel-aged sour beers; as well as other rare and limited beers, more crushable beers and super cool natural wines. Accompanying all this will be a lineup of the best local food vendors around.
General Admission tickets are $55
For those ready to get serious, we’ll be hosting a VIP session too. VIP ticket holders will get entrance to the festival one hour early and a VIP experience curated by the illustrious Chris Quiroga aka Woodshop Beer Co.
VIP tickets are $85
Admission gets you a “Friends Fest” taster glass & unlimited taster pours from all breweries and wineries in attendance, including:
Eagle Rock Brewery
El Segundo Brewing
Highland Park Brewery
Horus Aged Ales
Mission Trail Ciders
The Rare Barrel
There Does Not Exist
Yeast of Eden
Food vendors and additional wineries and breweries will be announced in the coming days…
The festival will be held at:
16745 Schoenborn Street
North Hills, CA 91343
VIP Session 12PM – 1PM
GA Session 1PM – 5PM
Why isn’t there an LA Beer Week Kickoff Fest? Due to fundraising limitations for the nonprofit during the last two years of the pandemic, LABG will be taking this year to focus on a wider variety of smaller community events in hopes of rebuilding our association to come back in full-force in 2023. The Cellador Friends Fest will take place on the first Saturday of LA Beer Week, in place of the regular kickoff festival.
