Nothing gets us more excited about the return of L.A. Beer Week season than the annual Unity collaboration brew coordinated by the Los Angeles County Brewers Guild. Originated by our Guild’s founders at Eagle Rock Brewery, this year’s Unity brew was hosted by El Segundo Brewing and drew over 70 brewers representing over 40 breweries. During a time when the craft brewing industry (and the world) is going through various changes and division, our collaboration symbolizes our community’s hope for a prosperous future and embodies L.A’s spirit of collaboration, innovation, and dedication to support one another.
In an unprecedented move that still baffles us to this day, the El Segundo team worked on a recipe for…wait for it…an IPA! (Shocker). This India Pale Ale features a balanced west coast hop profile and is accented by California-grown citrus and a structured malt body to bring you an offering worthy of all your upcoming barbecues. The beer will be available on draught and in 22-ounce bottles starting June 9th.
To further put the El Segundo Brewing spin on this year’s release, they will also be coordinating a Day One event on June 9th to bring over 20 L.A. area bars and breweries the freshest IPA possible! We would love for you to join us at the following locations for L.A. Brewers Guild member events (more details to come). Special thanks to the L.A. Brewers and the local retailers who have committed to hosting a Day One release, to Joe Natoli for creating an iconic and inspired bottle design,and to John Holzer of Four Brewers for capturing great moments of our day.
