What’s New This Year
Mt Lowe Sponsors Beer Garden
Local favorite and community hot-spot, Mt Lowe Brewing Company will be the host of our Beer Garden this year. The Beer Garden will feature four additional local craft breweries to sample, alongside some of the best food in the San Gabriel Valley.
Angry Horse Brewing opened in March of 2017 when the Desert Brothers launched the venue. Angry Horse brews and serves artisan craft beer in the city of Montebello. Beers have classic, yet distinct flavors, and the Desert Brothers pride themselves on their artisanal approach and aim to innovate. They aspire to produce a quality product that enhances any occasion or culinary experience. Angry Horse was founded on the idea of community and giving back, which makes them an ideal pick for the Taste of Arcadia Beer Garden.
Hop Secret was founded in September of 2015 by owner/brewer Gary Gates. The concept had been ‘brewing’ in the owner’s mind for a least a year prior to the opening of the brewery. After retirement, Gary brought his home brewing out into the open, into the growing craft-draught industry. For his brewery, Gary wanted to offer a cool atmosphere where his good beer could be celebrated, enjoyed and discussed a mere 25 feet from where it is produced. The brewery and tasting room are appealing to the eye, with interesting art created by local artists, and has the greatest selection of music that a subscription music-service can provide.
Pacific Plate – Pacific Plate is Monrovia’s first and only independently owned craft brewery. Their handcrafted ales are brewed with the finest and most exotic ingredients from Latin America and around the world. Pacific Plate originally opened with a one barrel brewhouse but has since upgraded to three barrel.
RT Rogers is a craft brewery located in Sierra Madre, open Thursday through Sunday. The venue has a family friendly taproom and patio, Trivia Thursdays at 8pm and occasional musical performances. The patio is dog friendly and even had a cat come visit once. RT Rogers will also be hosting the October 9th edition of the Arcadia Chamber’s popular MIX.
The BMW Wine Garden is also new this year and will feature foods and wine from most local spots, including a Candy Bar provided by Sugarfina, an ‘adult’ candy company new to Westfield Santa Anita, popular for their liquor infused candies. Also located in Westfield is Wing Hop Fung, a specialty shop with a vast array of wines to choose from, who will be sampling their wine and tea in the Wine Garden area. Newcomer Rev Winery joins us, along with Topo Chico, who will be providing their very popular sparking mineral water.
