LA Beer Week is upon us and all Porter and I have been able to focus on is the CUP hearing we have tonight, keeping our production up to service our accounts and all the events we have coming up in October. We have scheduled a few events for the coming week: King’s Row Oktoberfest, Select Beer Store Tap Takeover, a prix fix dinner at Savory in Malibu and of course, LABW Union Station Beer Festival.

Forgive us if we seem like we’ve checked out of this year’s LABW. We’re deeply engrossed in the machinations of getting our brewery open, keeping our current accounts happy, and maintaining some modicum of Porter’s sanity…is if! This is a balancing act on a weekly basis and no little stress. We do hope to see you out and about this year for some of the wonderful events featured around town and fear not that our absence from this week’s festivities seems like more than it is…we’re just super busy and focused on our own little world right now. Plus, we’ll be rocking all of October with events across the city! More on that to come…now for LABW 2012
