Angel City Brewery’s Avocado Festival

Avocados are good for more than just guacamole—Angel City Brewery knows this, and they're throwing a festival dedicated to the beloved state fruit to celebrate the fact. Their annual Avocado Festival promises food trucks, brewery tours, music, avocado-inspired art 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. This year—the fifth annual festival—debuts the beloved Avocado Ale in cans. Looking to get a jump on those cans early? The brewery will be selling four-packs of the 16-ounce cans beginning at 4pm on Friday, August 4.

At the end of the festival, some of the proceeds will benefit local nonprofit the Ron Finley Project.

There are few things I love more than avocados, so when I heard about the avocado fest that was going to be right in my back yard I was ecstatic!  Unfortunately I may have inadvertently set myself up for disappointment. Parking took about about 2o mins, but we told ourselves it was a minor price to pay!  We were going to an avocado festival after all!  

When we finally made the trek over to the brewery there was aline around the block (literally) that was not there when we fist drove by.  The venue didn't look to crowded so everyone was curious as to what the deal was.  It should't take this long to card people..turns out they were at capacity?  They had to wait until people left in order to let more people in.  Now legally I get this..it just didn't LOOK crowded.  


But we waited!  Once we were finally tagged in there was a handful of food trucks you had the choice of purchasing from, we headed inside to grab our avocado beer first!  That in itself was an easy enough process.  We walked around the brewery looking at the various vendors that had set up shop, some featuring some sort of avocado most not.  We sipped our pale beer er I mean "avocado beer" and decided to head outside to grab some grub!  Turns out we were not allowed to drink outside..and they had run out of chips and guac inside.


We downed our drinks and checked out the food trucks, only 2 of which actually featuring something avocado fest worthy..avocado ice cream.  (Which I will say was pretty darn good!)  We meandered over to another part of the brewery where they were blasting giant fans and had a band playing.  The band was really good!  But overall I would just say it wasn't really worth of being called an avocado fest.   A summer party at a brewery, sure!  But not an avocado fest.
