SAN DIEGO, CA - November 16, 2016 - Fresh off last month's "Mid-Size Brewing Company of the Year" honors at the Great American Beer Festival, Karl Strauss Brewing Company will open a satellite brewery and brewpub in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, located at the corner of Wilshire and South Grand Avenue.

"The craft beer scene in LA is taking off & we are excited to be a part of it! We are proud of the role we played in helping establish San Diego's craft industry and we are honored to participate in LA's craft beer revolution." - Matt Johnson, Brewmaster, Karl Strauss Brewing Company.

The downtown LA satellite brewery will serve as an R&D facility where brewers are given free rein to experiment with new and exciting small batch beers. The site will feature a 7-barrel brewhouse, two 14-barrel fermenters, and three 14-barrel bright beer tanks with the ability to brew on-site & release more than 35 different beers annually.

"We have a talented team of brewers who are passionate about what they do. Our satellite breweries give them the opportunity to be creative, try out new recipes, and experiment with ingredients and brewing techniques. Oftentimes these small batch beers take home medals at beer competitions, and occasionally we even add them to our core line-up -- as was the case with our award-winning Mosaic Session IPA." - Matt Johnson, Brewmaster, Karl Strauss Brewing Company.

The brewpub layout features a tasting room-style bar area with 24 taps for guests to enjoy an ever-changing list of rotating beers that will include their core lineup, seasonal, and limited release brews in addition to the small batch beers brewed on-site. Cold, fresh 6-packs and 22oz bombers will be available in "beer to go" coolers along with draft beer in growlers to be enjoyed at home. The menu features west coast inspired food dishes designed to pair with KARL's beers.

"We couldn't be more excited to introduce our beer to Downtown Los Angeles. This location is a prime spot for people to get a tasting room experience and enjoy independently owned, freshly brewed, local beer." - Matt Rattner, President and Co-Founder, Karl Strauss Brewing Company

The location will open its doors to the public on November 21st, 2016.
