Chloe’s was packed wall-to-wall Wednesday night with friends, family, and the who’s-who of the LA beer community to celebrate the new custom IPA, 2020 IPA by Golden Road Brewing. Just like the Heal the Bay IPA, this particular brew has a great cause behind it--The Greenway 2020 project, whose goal is to restore the greenway along the LA river.
As the beautifully illustrated can reads, by the year 2020, “Greenway 2020 will connect 51 miles of the LA river--transforming it from a neglected, concrete riverbed to a connected, public green space. Imagine beautiful bike commutes, new parks, general stores, and cafes to enjoy with friends and family.” And like many who live or work around the LA River know, it’s in desperate need of revitalization. As Brewmaster, Jesse, pointed out that evening, “One-third of Golden Road employees bike into work everyday.”
Co-Owner, Tony Yanow, spoke that evening about “making something beautiful” and through the Greenway 2020 project and Jesse’s newest hoppy creation, beautiful things are happening at this Los Angeles brewery. The beer itself “is an amber IPA...medium crystal malts and hop-forward.” Warrior, Cascade, Palisade, Chinook, Simcoe, and Ahtanum round out the delightful piney, hoppy taste and aroma. 2020 IPA, in order to maintain its freshness as long as possible, is being packaged in the 16 oz. cans for mass-distribution.
Owners Tony Yanow, and Meg Gill, who was recently named in Forbes 30 Under 30, have once again demonstrated their love for brewing great craft beer through their love for the LA community with this new custom IPA. It’s not only a great beer to be enjoyed, but a great beer paired nicely with a worthy cause. Our glasses are raised on your behalf. Cheers!
