Saturday, June 20th marked the LA Beer Week Kickoff Event #7 which was held at Exposition Park. The festival was the perfect chance to see fellow brewers, our TP friends and meet a whole new group of exciting beer lovers. Be sure to visit our Instagram & FB pages for pictures.
Owner and head brewer Chris Sparacio, along with beertender Andy unveiled the shiny new Timeless Pints tent and greeted beer enthusiasts with select brewery favorites. The warm day was ideal to share the great citrus taste of the Wicked White IPA along with the smooth Good Mannered Belgian Witbier. The Bear Reader, Huckleberry Oatmeal Stout was also on tap and gave the crowd a taste of a TP beer that is only available in the tap room.
Prior to the festivities, the LA Brewers Guild got together to brew the official LA Beer Week beer. This year the collaboration was hosted by Smog City Brewing Co. in Torrance. The result was a tart saison appropriately named “Unity”. The guild is made up of 25+ breweries and provides a valuable support system within the beer community. Regarding being a member of the guild, Chris said, “We all go through similar trials and tribulations and knowing that I can reach out if needed is definitely reassuring.”
When’s the next festival? Timeless Pints is excited to be part of The Long Beach Taste of Brews again this year which is set for August 22 at Lighthouse Park in Long Beach. For more event details and to purchase tickets click here.
Vroom! Vroom! Yes, that’s the official TP car which was skillfully crafted by Chris himself, as part of the 2nd Annual Pintwood Derby hosted by Alosta Brewing.
With proceeds going to A Loving Legacy charity, Chris said he enjoys the charitable aspect of the event, the fact that his kids get really excited about it and it’s a great way to spend the afternoon.
TP won several rounds and in the end took 2nd place by a fraction of a second! “My kids were yelling and cheering and were really bummed out when we didn’t take first place” Chris said. “We’ll make some car adjustments and see what next year brings.”
Psst! Word on the street is next year’s event may be held at a different location with participating breweries serving their beer, festival style!
