LOS ANGELES | Iron Triangle Brewing, in Los Angeles’ Arts District, is named after the three men who came together to build the LA Aqueduct, William Mulholland, Fredrick Eaton, and Joseph Lippincott. It’s housed in an a 10,000-square-foot pre-prohibition era (1904) building that was used as a stables, before being used as a warehouse from the 1920s. There’s a speakeasy feel throughout the venue, with exposed brick, wood and steel being used to good effect, in a style that reflects 1920s Los Angeles.
Founder Nathan Cole is a friendly guy, and loves to chat to customers at the bar when he’s around. His aim is simple – to create great beers for the people of LA. The bar features 16 taps, which contain Iron Triangle’s three core beers along with a range of one-off and season brews. Staff here are encouraged to experiment, and at any given time you’re likely to find something that’s been brewed on the brewery’s pilot system by any one of the Iron Triangle staff.
The Iron Triangle IPA is a classic, hop-forward, West Coast-style IPA, while the Iron Triangle Dark Ale features hints of coffee and chocolate and is surprisingly approachable. Rounding out the core range is the Iron Triangle Gold, a refreshing, pre-prohibition style golden ale. We’re also big fans of Iron Triangle’s spot on take of the classic ESB, the ‘Royal Clayton’s ESB’.
There’s no kitchen on site, but visitors can order from a selection of nearby restaurants like Pizzanista!, The Chairman, and Comfort LA, who will deliver straight to the taproom.
Free brewery tours are offered Saturdays at 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm, while private tours can be arranged with 72 hour notice. For those who can’t hang around at the brewery, growler refills are also offered.
