Angel City Brewery Celebrates 3rd Annual Avocado Festival


Los Angeles, CA (July 30, 2015) — Green, gold and glorious – all hail the avocado! Often mistaken for a humble fruit, the great and noble avocado gives life to salads, sauces, tacos and tapas. But the creation most craved and called for? Angel City Brewery’s Avocado Ale! And once again it will celebrated in style at Angel City Brewery’s 3rd Annual Avocado Festival – August 9, 12-8 pm.

Angel City Brewery’s Avocado Festival came to life in 2013 and now is a green-themed go-to event. Festivities and frivolity prevail throughout the Public House and include games, music, food, art and more. The beer, brewed with avocados and guacamole-inspired ingredients like fresh cilantro, crushed red pepper and lime, is a refreshing ale with a smooth finish. Kegs of Avocado Ale will be tapped at the start of the event, and will be available exclusively at the Angel City Public House.

“Avocado Ale and Avocado Fest have come to be a summer staple for us,” said Angel City’s Melissa Corbin. “Avocado is the state fruit and a California commodity – and frankly one of our favorite foods. Using it as the base of a beer recipe seemed like a natural idea. The resulting ale is delicious and we have a great time both making it and celebrating it.”

Beyond the beer, Angel City has a full lineup of events for the day, including:

  • Avocado Ale food pairings by The Surfer TacoBrewwingsSi Paletas & The Green Truck
  • Brewer-led tours with a focus on the Avocado Ale brewing process
  • Live chalk art
