, Creature Comforts Brewing Partners With Famed Film Director For New LA Brewery

Creature Comforts is going “Hollywood” with a new LA brewery and taproom and they’ve teamed up with the award-winning film director, Joe Russo to do it.

Here’s the deal….

Creature Comforts Brewing, one of the fastest growing, breweries in the US, has announced plans for a new brewery and taproom slated to open in “La-La Land” next summer.

This is the Athens, Ga-based brewery’s first out-of-state operation. But having produced several collaborations with some of California’s most famous brewers including Russian River, Modern Times, Firestone Walker, Alvarado Street, and Sierra Nevada over the years, the West Coast expansion is not completely out of the blue.

“Over the years, we have admired the stellar craft brewing scene in California and its pivotal role in advancing American beer,” says David Stein, Founder and Co-Owner of Creature Comforts Brewing…

“We have collaborated with outstanding brewers in Los Angeles and throughout the state, and I’m proud to call them my friends. We are committed to both bringing our beers to California and continuing to build our brand in Georgia, home to our long-time, loyal fans who have been critical to our success,” adds Stein, a creative force for the company who plans to relocate to Los Angeles to help build the brand.

The brewery’s Tropicalia IPA made a “guest” appearance with an overweight Thor in Endgame.

According to Creature Comforts what started back then grew into a real bond and eventually this partnership…

“I was taken by the beers, but when I met the team behind the brews, their standards as great human beings matched their standards as exceptional beer makers, said Russo…

“I fell in love with their work ethic and their caring attitude towards their customers and employees, as well as their commitment to social causes. I think people in LA are going to value the way Creature Comforts builds community. Equally important, they’re going to love the beer as much as I do.”

Planned as a true beer destination with a 3.75 million capacity, Creature Comforts’ new LA operation will feature a 15-barrel brewhouse with a mix of 15-barrel and 60-barrel fermenters and brite tanks, a centrifuge and a canning line, as well as a 3,000-sq. ft. designer taproom.

When selecting its first market outside of Georgia, Creature Comforts combined both the founders’ personal desires with an array of analytics on American cities, including data points such as the number of breweries, population dynamics, regulatory environment, demographics and more.

“Los Angeles stood out because of its large craft beer community, the success of numerous independent, small craft breweries and California’s brewery-friendly state laws,” says Chris Herron, CEO and Co-Owner, Creature Comforts Brewing…

 “The beautiful weather and coastal location were also factors, since a good number of our beers are great in the warmer months, and we just really love the beach! Combining those factors with the solid friendships we have made with some local breweries and the chance to work in close proximity to Joe and his team, LA became an obvious choice.”
