This is great news for the local area, and the thriving craft beer market and great news for the local economy, where this facility will surely put people to work. It is expected to open sometime in 2017.
Measuring close to 200,000 sq ft the space will feature a taproom and event space. This will be the largest brewing facility in LA County!
Is the Southern California market ready for more breweries? The answer is YES. With Golden Road, Angel City Brewing, STONE, and others proving that the market is growing faster than most would expect. Craft Beer is probably growing faster than most other beverage sectors.
Lagunitas is one of my favorite beers, consistent and priced right, and readily available from Trader Joe’s to Costco.
Lagunitas makes several specialty brews but the mainstays are their IPA’s and Ale’s.
