I’ve just heard that Santa Monica Brew Works will being selling beer to the public this Friday. The beer (available in standard keg size) will now be available for purchase from their brewery. Located at Colorado Avenue and Twentieth Street in the 90404 zip code, (and across the corner from Saint Anne Church — nice work, btw).
This marks the end of a long march for the brewery, which has jumped through countless bureaucratic hoops to get this far. Not sure if the tasting room is open, but I’m sure we’ll find out soon!
Incidentally, the brew works backs up to the old “Los Angeles & Independence Railroad” right-of-way, now being converted to Phase II of the MTA’s Expo rail line.
