PODCAST: Get to know your local beer scene w/ Dennis Trilles of Craft Beer Long Beach

In honor of this year’s LA Beer Week, Suppertime in the LBC hit the road to talk about the city’s rapidly growing craft beer scene and why you should ditch the wine and fizzy yellow stuff for a locally-made brew. With Brian Addison on leave for the week, the Post’s resident beer guru Sarah Bennett sat down with Dennis Trilles of Craft Beer Long Beach and Hi-Lo editor (and craft beer neophyte) Steve Lowery to talk about the city’s world-class breweries, why tasting rooms are the new local pubs and how to find your gateway beer.

Recorded live over sour ales and pilsners at Long Beach Beer Labs’ Wrigley tasting room.
