Karl Strauss will be turning over its taps to showcase LA’s vibrant and growing craft beer community.
KSCW Reverse Tap Takeover
Angel City Brewing, Eagle Rock Brewery, Golden Road Brewery, and Ladyface Ale Companie will each pour two beers at the event alongside two special release brews from Karl Strauss. In addition to a stellar beer line-up, Karl Strauss’ culinary team has prepared unique small plates designed to pair specifically with each beer. “LA has a great food reputation and we want to showcase how well beer and food pair together,” says Karl Strauss Executive Chef, Gunther Emathinger. “It was also important for us to center this event on LA’s local breweries and really highlight what’s going on in the beer scene up here.”
After enjoying the all-local line-up, you can mingle with the brewers, take a brewery tour, or taste a sample off the freshly-tapped cask. Your $20 ticket gets you into this private event along with 10 beer and food pairings and a commemorative event glass. For tickets and more information visit: www.karlstrauss.com. Share it. Cheers.
