The true stature of the towering smoke stack you’ve been driving past for years rises above as you quietly walk beneath it. Concrete laden buildings, iron sculptures and the odd artist focusing on minute details catches your attention as you attempt to find your way to Barbara’s at the Brewery. Once inside you’re transported to a different city with different attitudes and feels, all good, all LA, just something less felt on your average day. You make your way to the bar and place your order along with a local beer to start your day’s work. When the food arrives you understand it’s much more than average as you soak in the industrial landscape on one of the porches. Once you’ve set your base bid farewell to this interesting corner of LA. It’s time to go beer sampling.
Alternative or Bonus Stop: If tacos and a micheladas sound like a better way to start the date head to La Chuperia.
