Further proof that San Pedro is becoming a certified destination point: The Festival 2014, a craft beer festival, is coming to Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles on November 8 and 9. Benefitting Sharefest, a youth mentorship group, the Festival will be led by local craft beer house Brouwerij West, which is slated to open its brewery and gastropub in winter 2014. Buy a ticket for a few drinks, a half day, a whole day, or even a weekend pass, and gain access to over 70 U.S. and international craft beer companies: Anchorage Brewing, Shmaltz, Siren, The Monarchy, and Torrance's very own Monkish Brewing, to name a few. Of course, what's an afternoon of beers without some food to nosh on? Greenspan's Grilled Cheese, Waterloo & City, Vella Pizza and a few more tried-and-true restaurants will be on hand to soak up some of that alcohol. Purchase tickets here.
