Apparently avocados are good for more than just guacamole, because Angel City Brewery is throwing a festival dedicated to the beloved state fruit. Their 2nd annual Avocado Festival promises food trucks (Lime Truck and Son of a Bun), brewery tours, music (courtesy of Echo Country Outpost), beer and avocado popsicles by Si Paletas, an avocado art competition and, of course, fresh avocados for sale. However, the star of the day is the Angel City Avocado Ale, which has hints of avocados, cilantro, red pepper and lime. The fruit isn’t the only green part of the event, though; Angel City encourages you to go green—they’ll provide valet parking and discounted beer for those who commute by bike. At the end of the day, some of the proceeds will benefit local non-profit organization Food Forward as well as Echo Country Outpost’s clubhouse, which promotes creativity and friendship in its social space.
