Lincoln Beer Co. has been making beer inside a castle-style building in the Airport District since fall, and friends-turned-business partners Ryan Lipson and Patrick Dunn are planning to open the on-site tasting room.
Dunn handles the brewing duties, adapting his favorite homebrew recipes to a full production scale, while Lipson covers the sales side, carting kegs of Lincoln Beer around L.A. The early Lincoln beers prominently feature a variety of specialty malts from around the world. Dunn also plans to experiment with fruit and flavor infusions in future batches. Currently, you can find Lincoln Beer Co. brews at the Federal bar in North Hollywood, Barrel and Ashes in Studio City, Salazar in Frogtown, and two spots at Grand Central Market: Horse Thief and Belcampo.
What a GEM. I'm hesitant to give this a five star review since it's finally something excellent near my house and I wanna keep it exclusive but I see it already has a ton of em so no harm. This is the kind of place where you bring people when they visit LA and then introduce them to the beertender Mike and tell them that he's just some typical Angelino and don't introduce them to anyone else and send em packing. The Fiesta beer is so damn good. A lot of their beers are unique, the aesthetic is super St Louis aka exposed brick, industrial blend, aka what we're all looking for now. The ones I tried were all on the sweeter caramely side which is excellent and sadly all too rare in socal IPA craze. (They have plenty of hoppy IPAs as well). Full Review
I hosted my birthday party here yesterday, and had 50 plus guests join in on the fun.
The staff were incredible, the beer was fantastic, and there were plenty of games for families and friends to play. I will most definitely be going back here to hang out !
Thank you Ryan and staff. Full Review
It's got 5 stars for a reason. Good beer and AMAZING staff.
Most of the beer is good, but the IPAs are incredible. I don't typically like IPAS but I enjoyed theirs IMMENSELY. More lightly fruity than hoppy and bitt is. The "PHD" was the best beer I had there. Full Review
