Los Angeles craft beer guide

This guide to craft breweries in Los Angeles can help you discover your next favorite beer, whether it’s poured at the taproom of a production brewery (focused on distributing its production in bottles, cans or kegs to bars, restaurants and retailers) or served alongside a burger at a local brewpub (a brewery that also serves food; technically a brewery-restaurant that sells at least 25% of its beer on-site).
