Angel City Brewery is excited to be part of the brewing renaissance of Downtown LA by bringing old-world, small-batch, craft brewing to the new world of the expanding Arts District. We are committed to the continued growth and revitalization of our neighborhoods by being an interactive and supportive partner to the arts and business communities, as well as the burgeoning craft beer movement in Los Angeles.
Angel City Brewing was founded in 1997. Starting modestly, Angel City quickly became a leader in the LA craft beer scene. In 2004 Angel City bought an 8,000 barrel German-made brewery in Alpine Village near Los Angeles on EBay! and lovingly restored the facility. In late 2010, Angel City relocated the brewery to the historic John A. Roebling Building in LA’s Downtown Arts District. The vision was, and remains, to give this great city a great brewery.
In 2011, Angel City Brewery was acquired by Alchemy & Science, a craft beer collaboration led by Alan Newman and Stacey Steinmetz, formerly of Magic Hat Brewing Company. Brewing at Angel City began in April of 2012.
The brewery restoration project is in full swing and includes a bar/meetinghouse, brewery and sampling tours, and event space. Although the doors won’t be open to the public until this fall, you can find Angel City on draft at a number of locations around downtown LA.
