Creature Comforts Brewing Company is developing a new brewery and taproom in Los Angeles, California, US. The brewery project is a partnership with film director and entrepreneur Joe Russo, which will support the brewing company in its first expansion and increase the brand’s exposure.

The new brewery, expected to open in the third quarter of 2021, will serve the guests with the company’s award-winning beers. Creature Comforts Brewing Company will also introduce unique brews for the Los Angeles community.

The brewing company collaborated with brewers in Los Angeles and California as part of its efforts to build its brand in Los Angeles. The new location will also create an exclusive range of beers to serve the California market.

Creature Comforts Brewing Company’s new brewery and taproom location and details

Located in City Market South at 1124 San Julian Street in the Fashion District, Los Angeles, the brewery’s location was selected as it is home to the region’s large craft beer community. The state also has brewery-friendly regulations and the company’s decision to expand to the West Coast was also influenced by the success of various small and independent craft breweries in Los Angeles.

The brewery will house a taproom spanning 3,000ft², a production facility covering 10,000ft² and an outdoor seating area. Brewing capacity is expected to increase to 15,000 barrels a year, which is equivalent to approximately 3.75 million pints.

Creature Comforts Brewing Company’s new brewery and taproom will be equipped with a 15-barrel brewhouse and a combination of 15-barrel and 60-barrel fermenters and brite tanks, as well as a canning line and a centrifuge. The company plans to employ more than 24 workers to support operations at the new location.
