In case you hadn’t seen all the photos from the LA Vegan Beer Fest over on Quarrygirl, I have a few more to add to the lot. It was the quintessential summer event here in Los Angeles as the weather just decided to finally warm up. We didn’t get as crazy as last year but it was tons of fun. There were lots of superb beers and good times.
I started out with a bbq “pulled pork” sandwich from Seabirds made with jackfruit. We also had to have their infamous beer battered avocado tacos. Have I mentioned how much I love Seabirds? Love them so much.
So possibly my favorite beer of the day was the Brother Thelonius from North Coast Brewing Co. It is rich with a full flavor and just my style.
Coincidentally our friend Jenny volunteered at the North Coast booth, so we were back a few times.
And of course, veteran beer drinkers, Kyle & Jannatha were there, ready to flex their beer consumption skills.
We chatted a little bit with Trina from Your Vegan Mom and her husband Paul who we haven’t seen in forever and ever.
More beer was consumed. Much more.
I also highly enjoyed the orange wheat from Hangar 24. It was nice and light and great for the hot day.
We hung out with Christina from Unhealthy Vegans & Diana. I tried to convince them that Belgian beers are actually amazing.
We had some mega-banh mi from Mandoline Grill.
Going to this event was like going to a big party that someone else threw, but tons of people that you know showed up. Tina on the right above did my hair for Shawn and my wedding. Small town Los Angeles. It’s weird sometimes.
We all snagged the last of the Frankens. Yum!
And then it was over…
You’ll never guess where we went afterward.
I can’t wait till the next one.
