These photos were taken Saturday evening at Phantom Carriage Brewery in Carson, where they held their 3 Year Anniversary Party & Nuclear Blast Beer Release party. The event featured more than 20 of Phantom Carriage’s wild beers, including cellared rarities, plus rare guest beers from local craft breweries. Naturally their house-smoked BBQ was available, as was the music; the horror films, as usual, were available inside.
If you had not heard, Phantom Carriage has stepped up their brewing game and are actually canning some of their beers now; on Saturday they released a collaboration they did with Nuclear Blast USA, the self-described “world’s biggest independent heavy metal record label.” The beer, Blast Beast, is a Black India Pale Lager. I do not know how much is still available; you should probably just head over now if interested.
The official anniversary party was out in the parking lot where all the booths for the specialty beers were available as well as the barbecue for burgers and such. There were also several booths with vendors selling their art and comic books. To be honest, it is a genre I don’t know much about so I didn’t always know what I was looking at. Reading comments from vendors today, I may have been in the minority.
Dead Marionette Theatre performed as well, but I had not dressed for the weather and had dog responsibilities so I had to leave before they started; I looked forward to seeing what they were about.
Anyway, congratulations to Jackson, Martin, Ryan and all the staff at Phantom Carriage, you have really made an impact on the South Bay craft beer scene. Cheers!
