Special guest blog by Vegan food blogger and co-presenter of the Los Angeles Vegan Beer Festival: Quarry Girl
Heads up, everybody! This Saturday from 1pm – 5pm, Tony’s Darts away and Quarrygirl.com are co-hosting the first ever Los Angeles Vegan Beer Fest at The Roxy. It’s going to be an excitement-packed day filled with live music, vegan food, and of course unlimited beer.
As far as music is concerned, there will be a bit of something for everyone on The Roxy stage. We’ve got country soul with The Paul Chesne Band, folk rock psyche with OWLACID, experimental crunk with Holland Greco Trio, poppy ska with Ease up, and acoustic rock with The Makepeace Brothers.
Outdoors, The Roxy grounds will be converted into a giant beer garden serving over 50 beers from more than 20 craft breweries. There is seriously going to be more beer than you can possibly drink from folks like Stone Brewing Company, Eagle Rock Brewery, Ballast Point, Bootleggers Brewery and Lagunitas…just to name a few. Ticket price includes UNLIMITED BEER, so be ready to sample it all. Since so many beers use animal parts in the filtration process, this will be a great chance for vegans to cut loose and drink whatever they want without worrying.
Lastly, it wouldn’t be a proper vegan event without a wide range of delicious food to choose from. Legendary Los Angeles vegetarian restaurant Doomie’s Home Cookin’, which shut down back in 2009, will make a return serving their inventive cuisine at The Roxy. The Frankenstand, LA’s only plant-based food, cart will also be on hand with gourmet sausages. On top of that, 4 popular food trucks will be in The Roxy’s parking lot serving entirely vegan menus. There will be so much good stuff to choose from—beer battered avocado tacos from Seabirds Truck, lemongrass tofu banh mi sandwiches from Mandoline Grill, French fries with various toppings from Fresh Fries, and spicy falafel sandwiches from Yalla Truck. Please arrive hungry!
Advance tickets are $35 for general admission, and include entertainment and unlimited pours of beer. VIP tickets can be purchased for $45, and include early admittance at noon and access to the VIP area. Tickets are available now through the Roxy box office and ticketmaster, but I highly suggest you get buy them from The Roxy to avoid additional fees! They can be purchased over the phone by calling 310-278-9457, or in person at the box office between 10am and 6pm, and 8pm and 12am. Tickets will be available at the door on a first come, first serve basis for $45.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to Animal Rescue Media Education, a local organization that seeks to eliminate the suffering of animals through rescuing homeless animals and educating the public of the vast extent of animal cruelty in our society.
