The Best Breweries In Downtown Los Angeles

June 16, 2016

Beer lovers unite: L.A. Beer Week is back June 18th-26th! With the Arts District now home to the highest concentration of craft breweries in Los Angeles, downtown is quickly becoming a haven for brew enthusiasts, one sudsy sip at a time. Dedicated and inspired masters across the area offer it all; from time honored recipes to one-off experimental batches.

Are you thirsty yet? Well you’re in luck, as most of these breweries are just a short 10-minute Uber ride away from LEVEL Furnished Living. So without further adieu, our Guest Services team is giving you the LEVEL low down on the best breweries in downtown Los Angeles.
