Three Weavers Tap Takeover at Astro Pub

These photos were taken at the Three Weavers tap takeover that was held Saturday evening at the new Whole Foods Market in Playa Vista. This event featured six brews by Three Weavers Brewing; Seafarer Kolsch, Expatriate IPA, Ripple Saison, Deep Roots ESB, Knotty DIPA and Blood Junkie Imperial Red. There were several cheeses, dried meats and crackers provided along with some pairing suggestions. Three Weavers head brewer, Alexandra Nowell was also on hand to answer questions about the brews for the attendees.

When I was asked if I would cover this event, I did not hesitate in responding in the affirmative. While I may not spend a lot of time in Whole Foods markets, I have attended a few tap takeovers at other Whole Foods locations like El Segundo with their 760 Flight Plan tapas and craft beer bar; as well as Bar 225 at Whole Foods Venice and was aware that the new Playa Vista Whole Foods was going to have a larger area set aside for enjoying craft beer on-site. One thing is for sure; the Playa Vista location provides a lot more space for having a brew and their beer buyer, Raul Moran plans on making good use of it.

It was a very warm and pleasant evening as we exited the parking structure and headed into the store. As I looked to my left I noticed a very nice patio area and said to Tanya, “It would be nice if the beer bar utilized that patio.” It was then that I noticed the Three Weavers tent and a big smile on Raul’s face as he seemed to know that I was really going to enjoy the new setup; I did.

Whole Foods Market Astro Pub features 24 craft beers on tap, with 14 of them dedicated to local breweries. They have a daily Happy Hour special of $2.00 off all beer and wine from 4:00-7:00 PM. I did not pay a lot of attention to Astro Pub’s food menu, but if you have ever been to a Whole Foods you are probably aware that they have lots of prepared foods located throughout the store and any food you buy in the store can be eaten in the pub. They really do have something for everyone, ranging from burgers to sushi and beyond.

Whole Foods Market Playa Vista is located at 12746 W Jefferson Boulevard in Playa Vista. There are a lot of shops in the area, so if you have been walking too long or were dragged along unwillingly, cheer up; there is lots of great beer waiting for you at Astro Pub. Cheers!
