It’s a good week to be a beer lover around here, as tomorrow night Short Order will begin its own Beer Fest, offering a ten-dollar draft flight of brews from El Segundo Brewing and Moorpark’s Enegren Brewing, alongside an offered tasting menu meant to go with the pints that includes dishes like beer battered halibut cheeks and grass-fed brisket machaca. On Thursday night, Beachwood BBQ and Brewing in Long Beach will honor our region’s medal winners from The Great American Beer Fest, making room for rare ales from crafts-folk like Smog City, Green Flash, The Bruery, and TAPS, as well as its own winning “El Verano Saison” and “Udder Love Milk Stout.” Brewers from Alesmith, Firestone, and Smog City will be on hand to talk beer geeky stuff with you, while ales will be served on a first-come, first-served basis. See Short Order’s full Beer Fest menu and the full tap lineup planned at Beachwood this Thursday, down below.
