The first of the new wave of tasting rooms to open, Trustworthy Brewing Co. is backed by co-owners Chipper Pastron and Sal Casola Jr’s MCC Hospitality Group (Market City Caffe, Juice Farm). The tasting room and brewery are tucked into a building just over the Burbank Western Channel, south of downtown Burbank. Helming the brewhouse is Chris Walowski, the former head brewer at Smog City Brewery in Torrance. He’s assembled a modular mini-lab inside the brewery — a powerful tool for a brewer obsessed with consistency.
The core lineup of four beers includes the light and approachable Wax Wing lager-style beer and the dense and complex Brass Jag imperial red ale. Walowski says he wants maximum diversity in the core lineup (which also includes an oatmeal stout and an IPA), and to bring even more variety to the taproom, he’ll make one-off infusions and variants alongside a handful of rotating seasonal releases. He’s also already begun barrel aging some brews, and a pair of sour beers (a blond with peaches and a brown with cherries) are pouring in the tasting room.
The tasting room at Trustworthy West Brewery is open Monday through Sunday, and also features a menu of “burritos and shishitos” prepared at the nearby Market City Caffe.
It's a nice local brewery that I can walk to after work to grab a few drinks. The gentlemen who work here are friendly and Zack was great with his suggestions.
- Prices are reasonable and in the same ballpark as other breweries.
- Good selection although I'm not too much of a sour tasting beer fan and they have quite a few such as the sour plum
- Unlimited peanuts on tap! Lol
- Available games for your enjoyment Full Review
Yoooo this is the new spot. 100% FIRE.
Been on a "let's go to breweries alone" kick lately because it's the holidays and stumbled upon this place. Got a flight (four 5 oz pours for $10) and they were all delicious. Special tip of the cap goes to the Gigil Pils...it's made with jasmine rice and has tremendous flavor. Full Review
