LOS ANGELES | Arts District Brewing Co. is part brewery, part bar, part games parlour. Opened in January 2016, the venue is from Pouring With Heart, the group behind a number of DTLA bars like Bar Jackalope, Broadway Bar, and The Varnish.
There’s a 15-barrel brewhouse on-site, brewing an assortment of beers covering all kinds of styles. All up there’s over 30 beer brewed here, which can be enjoyed in sizes ranging from pints through to flights. Try the Celestial Beast, a 6.2% ABV Hazy Strong Pale Ale brewed with Ekuanot and Citra, or Aurora Croceus, an 5.5% ABV barrel aged apricot sour ale.
You can grab a seat in the low light interior, or on the cozy patio outside. If you feel like playing some games, there’s pay as you play skeeball, along with free games like cornhole, ping pong, darts and foosball.
There’s no kitchen on site, but there’s a window where you can order and pick up all the chicken and burgers from Fritzi next door.
