These photos were taken Saturday at Abigaile Restaurant and Brewery, where they held another in what is becoming their regular series of Brewtopia craft beer festivals. Saturday’s event featured unlimited tastings from Brewery Draconum, Common Space, Firestone Walker, Hand-Brewed Beer, Karl Strauss, King Harbor Brewing, MacLeod Ale, Pacific Plate Brewing, and The Brewery at Abigaile, as well as cider offerings from 101 Cider House. Attendees also had access to a complimentary buffet, and were automatically entered in raffles that included swag, a growler fill from Abigaile and a gift certificate to Abigaile as prizes.
People that attended Brewtopia in February, and there were several, were treated to a much better version on Saturday; I spoke with most of the people that attended both events and everyone agreed that it was like night and day. Saturday’s event had a wider selection of beers, free food, and definitely more attendees, so I guess their improved advertising made a huge difference; even if there was a last minute date change from Sunday to Saturday.
There were a few people in attendance that remembered the Brewtopia’s of yesteryear and agreed that Saturday’s event reminded them of those events.
During the raffle, it was announced that Abigaile Restaurant and Brewery plans on bringing back Brewtopia as a regular event, with each one being better than the last. If Saturday’s event was any indicator, these upcoming events should be epic.
The Brewery at Abigaile is located at 1301 Manhattan Avenue in Hermosa Beach. They are open seven days a week and offer growlers to go. Cheers!
