Craft beer seems to be the new wine and is celebrated for its different variations by food pairings and festivals. This Saturday, April 9, there are two events being held in Santa Monica and Burbank.

The LA Beer Fest hits Santa Monica for the third year at Sony Studios. This is no ordinary tasting. Over 300 beers will be available for tasting. Food trucks pairings include NomNom, Bower Sausage, Grilled Cheese Truck, Komodo, Ahn Joo, Crepe’n Around, and others. There will also be indie music acts such as Metal Shop and Black Crystal Wolf Kids. Among the hundreds of breweries featured, local vendors include Angel City; Inland Empire; and SoCal Beer Company. This is a $40 per-person event divided in two parts, from 12-3 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. The fee includes the entire tasting.  Food is extra.  The event sells out fast, so get your tickets now. No tickets will be sold at the door. For tickets and info, click here.

Over in Burbank, four of the four of the biggest names in Los Angeles’ craft beer movement have joined forces to create ColLAboration—a series of pop-up mobile craft beer gardens.The first event is being held this Saturday, April 9 from noon to 7 p.m. in Burbank to celebrate the one year anniversary of Burbank’s Tony’s Darts Away.  Yanow is celebrating as well as kicking off ColLAboration between his Tony’s Darts Away (and his Mohawk Bend which is currently under construction) and bar owners/craft beer aficionados Ryan Sweeney (Verdugo Bar & The Surly Goat), Brian Lenzo (Blue Palms Brewhouse), Clay Harding (38° Ale House & Grill).  The event will be held at the corner of Magnolia and Parish in Burbank, just one block from Tony’s Darts Away. Specialty beers and some surprise kegs will be on hand. The cost is $10 for a custom membership glass that will gain you access to this event and all other future ColLAboration beer gardens. Beer will be $5-6 each.  ColLAboration. 1900 W. Magnolia Boulevard, (1 block west of Tony’s Darts Away), outdoors, under the sun. For tickets, click here.
