It is not a safe assumption that beer will be at a food and wine festival.

Fortunately, the recent Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival did. Kicking off with a Thursday night event and going through the weekend concluding with a midday Sunday event, with dozens of events in between, this year's Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival made sure beer was represented.


At the Amazon Presents Eat the World with Emeril Lagasse event to kick off the festival, amidst dozens of wineries pouring their wines and many chefs serving food, there was other booze available. Whether it was rum, a great Scotch set-up, or an awesome gin-tasting, there was also a brewery represented.  Offering three beers from the tap was Golden Road Brewing.  Attendees were invited to try their delicious Hefeweizen, their solid Get Up Off That Brown, and their yummy piney and fruity Wolf Pup Session IPA. It was wonderful to have some local brews available!


At the concluding Lexus Grand Tasting event, with quite an elaborate set-up was Stella Artois. With a smartly positioned corner booth, Stella Artois was decorated as a kitchen/bar. Attendees could try either the Cidre or their trademark lager. As a treat to guests, not only were the Cidre and lager poured in specific glassware for the beverages, but attendees got to keep them as souvenirs. Even better, knowing the demand for their lager glasses, attendees were invited to tote then around with a special box just for that glass, which was very thoughtful of them.


Fortunately, for those looking for more than just wine to drink, the Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival had multiple options of alcoholic beverages. Multiple spirits were present the first night, such as rum, Scotch, and gin. In the final event, there was gin again and companies offering interesting mixed drinks. It could seem that wine stands as a metonym for alcoholic beverages, which allowed attendees to benefited from the variety of options.
