Top Los Angeles Breweries to Watch

#3. San Pedro Brewing Co.

2016 won't be the year that San Pedro Brewing Company's beers become worth drinking; but it will hopefully be the year everyone realizes that the 16 year-old brew pub's beers have been worth drinking all along.

 

Since brewer Jason Welke came on-board in 2006, The San Pedro Brewing Company continually pulls in awards from the L A and San Diego county fairs, commercial beer competitions and international beer festivals --

80 medals in all. With beers named after local people and places like Longshoreman Lager, Beacon Street Barley, Angeles Gate Amber, Terminal Island Black, Bruin Blonde, Sunken City Imperial Stout and Shanghai Red just to name a few.

 

A bar that screams "locals only" with football fans sitting wide-eyed at large screens and hometown bands taking to the stage on weekend nights. But don't be intimidated, cheap pitchers and quality lagers unlike any in L A makes SPBC worth the drive to this oft-forgotten

 'hood and the welcome mat is always out no mater what team you're rooting for.
