The Los Angeles Vegan Beer Fest was awesome. My friends and I had the best time. We were probably the first people to buy tickets for this event, we also showed up early and left late. Bikes were our transportation of choice and we made it home safe and sound. I had never been to a Beer Fest before so I had no idea the level of fun I would have. I’d put this at a 9 out of 10. Maybe in a few weeks it will be a 10 out of 10, only time will tell. First off the beer was awesome and all of the food was off the charts. I was coached by beer fest pros to drink, eat, drink, eat, drink, drink, eat, drink, drink, drink. This technique worked out well. With The Frankenstand, Doomies,Seabirds , Mandoline Grill, Yalla Truck and Fresh Fries surrounding me I figured I’d have to pick just one or two places to dine. But guess what? I had food from every single one. For most of the day I hung out with my friends and Raymond at The Frankenstand. I also made regular trips to Doomies and was a total newbie to Seabirds which I loved. My first set of photos I dedicate to Frankenstand because we had so much fun hanging out and tasting cute little glasses of beer together.
I love the decor. I love The Frankenstand style.
Hey that’s me with my orange hat. I have way too many photos of myself in this post, but that’s okay it’s all for the greater good.
Kyle ate at the Frankenstand at least 3 separate times throughout the day. It became common to get a Franken and have someone else take a few bites until it was gone. Then you’d go back and get another one and the same thing would happen. These things are so good. And so, so many toppings. I’d love to see Frankenstand take over the world with their carts. I was walking down the street the following morning to the La Brea Tarpits and low and behold in front of my barely open eyes I see the Frankenstand. I had Frankens for breakfast.
Look at these cute little mugs. And this one has a hops bag in it.
It’s Alix aka cute and delicious. We shared this amazing lemongrass tofu bahn mi sandwich from Mandoline Grill. Wow it was so good. No seriously I was shocked at how good it was.
The Oaked Arrogant Bastard from Stone Brewery is highly recommended.
It’s time for me to try Doomies Buffalo Legs. I’m so happy they’re reopening. I’ll be going to that $10 all you can eat deal on the 20th of November.
I got the Jalapeno Poppers from Doomies as well. They can explode, and they did.
An Empanada wow. I didn’t eat this one.
So you’ve had about ten maybe fifteen 4oz glasses of wonderful tasty beer and you crawl on up to the VIP room for the special tastes and here it is “The Don” a triple IPA at 11.2% alc. from Speakeasy. It just throws you over the edge. But it was so good.
I’m stealing this next paragraph directly from cute and delicious she is my future wife and she says it’s cool. Next up was the jackfruit tofu taquitos and the beer battered avocado taco from Seabirds Truck. Holy crap. I’m still in awe that there’s a completely vegan food truck, let alone one that is better than half the restaurants in Los Angeles. Beer Battered Avocado Taco. Do I have to say more? Every word is delicious!
I had to try the vegan shrimp cocktail from Doomies.
Adam, Shawn, Baxter, Buddies.
Doomies makes sushi! It was So good: faux tuna and faux shrimp with cream cheese, all topped with that awesome sauce.
Baxter and Jesus.
I think Kyle had more to drink than anybody. He was having so much fun.
Wait, what, it’s all over already? Not yet, It’s Kyle and Jannatha on their tandem. We all road bikes to our place for a little after party (watching movies). Actually it was a Harry Potter marathon. Getting amped up for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. For more photos check out my flickr.
