It's baaaack. LA Beer Week returns on June 18 with their annual kickoff party, taking place at Los Angeles Center Studios—a decidedly larger venue than last year to accommodate a bigger crowd and more entertainment: two stages featuring live music and educational panels, a VIP tent pouring specialty beers, games, a photobooth, and more food and beer selections. Over 75 breweries will be in attendance, and you can expect to see a lot of your local favorites—Highland Park Brewery, Smog City, El Segundo Brewing and more. And you can totally steal your glass because, uh, it comes with your admission ticket. Early Bird tickets for the kickoff party are on sale now: $45 for General Admission (which includes 25 drink tickets); VIP for $65 (one hour of early admission that doesn't require drink tickets). Beer-guzzling Angelenos will have plenty of chances to chug throughout the week at events such as beer brunches, special releases and more. Keep an eye out for an exhaustive list of all beer week events on the official website.
