Going Coastal: We’re Coming to California

brooklyn lager-01_FB resize

For most people, California is the land of SoCal beaches, LA glamour, San Francisco magic, and a general sense of sunny wonder. For beer people, there’s more: legendary breweries and boundary-busting newcomers pouring from the northern woods to the southern border, giving the world the modern archetype of the IPA, and continuing to stand as one of the world’s premiere beer destinations. We’re proud to announce that we’re joining in the fun with distribution throughout California, starting in January 2019.

Californians and transplanted East Coasters alike have been asking us to come to the Golden State for years. We’re celebrating our long-awaited arrival with a tour of parties, tastings, and more. You’ll even have a rare chance to catch Brooklyn Brewery Founder Steve Hindy and Brewmaster Garrett Oliver interviewing each other on the same stage twice. Our fearless leaders will bring Bar Talk: Craft Beer, Innovation & The Great Cape Debate to Beelman’s Pub in Downtown Los Angeles on January 30 and at Starline Social Club in Oakland on February 4. RSVPs are required: click here for LA, or click here for Oakland.

Check out the full list of events below and if you’re around, come grab a beer with us. We’re psyched to join our craft beer brethren in California, and we can’t wait to bring some Brooklyn your way.
