Brewery in LA?

I'm new to LA. I love hanging out in breweries but I can't seem to find any here. Anyone have any recommendations? Preferably in the Valley but any where in LA is fine.

    1. at the bonaventure brewery they do a blonde ale, a pale ale, a white ale, and a strawberry blonde. pass on the blonde and the white ales but the strawberry & the pale are good. happy hour food makes it worth it from 3-7 and they have an amaaaaaaaaaazing outdoor patio that gives you the best view of downtown la for the least amount of money.

      1. I believe they still brew their own beer at Manhattan Beach Brewing Company.

        Not sure about the brewpub in Westwood, anymore. Thoughts?

          Westwood Brew Co. hasn't brewed it's own beer for a long long time now; btw, it's coverting to a full bbq menu today.

        2. I like Lucky Baldwin's because they include Craftsmen Beer on their menu which is a local Pasadena brew. HOPEFULLY we'll be seeing more of them in the near future, but for now, they're hard to come by.

            The Golden State also has Craftsman on tap.
