San Pedro, CA – Brouwerij West, LA Weekly’s “Best New Brewery” (2016), one of Thrillist.com’s “Best New Breweries” (2016), and one of Beer Advocate’s “Class of 2016: 34 of the Best New Breweries in the U.S.” has begun releasing some of its classic beers along with a few new offerings in 16 oz. cans.
The first release features two core beers: “Dog Ate My Homework,” a blackberry saison and “Mør Mør,” a Belgian-style quadruple. Both are now on sale as individual 16-ounce cans or as a 4-pack at the brewery’s tasting room in San Pedro and select retail establishments throughout Southern California. At Brouwerij West’s tasting room these beers are $5.00 per can and $18.00 for the 4-pack. www.brouwerijwest.com.
On January 20th Brouwerij West will be releasing their 3rd canned beer: Earth That Was, an unfiltered dry-hopped IPA brewed with Chinook, Simcoe and Centennial hops, and Brux Trois yeast. A few weeks later, the 4th canned beer, a barrel-fermented version of Brouwerij West’s long-time favorite Saison Extra, will be available for sale.
Brouwerij West’s President Dave Holop states, “Cans are considered a superior packaging option to bottles for maintaining the quality of the beer inside as it makes its way to the consumers. They have lower oxygen pick-up and allow zero light in – oxygen and light are both bad for beer. And they’re generally a better package for the environment because they’re lighter (so their carbon footprint from transportation is lower) and they’re more likely to be recycled.”
Brouwerij West is available on draft, in bottles, and now in cans, throughout California at retail shops, bars and restaurants focused on serving quality craft beer. Brouwerij West beers can also be found in select retail outlets nationwide.

Brouwerij West is a unique craft brewery and venue located in the San Pedro neighborhood of Los Angeles. The company was founded in 2010 by talented brewer Brian Mercer and is now led by Mercer and his partner Dave Holop. Brouwerij West opened in February 2016 in a former Port Warehouse originally built by the U.S. Navy during World War II.

Brouwerij West brews its beers using traditional ingredients and methods mixed with creative inspiration to produce its own take on classic Belgian-style and farmhouse ales.
