Beer Paper LA is an online and monthly print magazine serving the craft beer community of Greater Los Angeles (LA, OC, and the IE). Our goal is to be a communal space for all the different elements of our rapidly expanding scene. We aim to provide comprehensive local news and coverage for all craft beer enthusiasts in our region. We want to provide opportunities for beer education in a safe, welcoming, non-exclusive way. We hope to help create and facilitate discourse about the direction and growth of craft beer in the Los Angeles region. And most importantly, we want to have fun—it’s just beer after all.
To this end, Beer Paper LA will feature monthly columns on what’s happening in LA/OC/IE beer, where and when to get the stuff, how to greater enjoy and understand beer, and who’s making waves in our community. In the spirit of inclusiveness and community, we will avoid commentary that we believe can be viewed as elitist or exclusionary whether it be in the form of beer reviews or ranking lists. And we will constantly strive to involve you, our readers, directly in the discourse of Beer Paper LA.
Our print edition is free and is distributed at over 150 craft beer-friendly businesses around Los Angeles, Orange County, and the Inland Empire. Check out our "Directory" for distribution locations, and check our "Print" section for electronic back issues.
