Our Story


Los Angeles Ale Works was a dream project founded in 2010 by Kristofor “Kip” Barnes. In 2013, Los Angeles Ale Works launched its first beers into the marketplace following a successful Kickstarter fundraiser. Working with Ohana Brewing Co., Los Angeles Ale Works tenant-brewed proof of concept beers to gather valuable feedback from customers. In 2015, Barnes teamed up with Andrew Fowler and Jeff Szafarski to strengthen the business side of the organization. The team successfully raised capital, secured a new home in Hawthorne, California and prepared for its brick and mortar grand opening at the start of 2017.

You’re thirsty, and we want to fix that.

We also have 32 and 64 oz growlers for sale. If you already own a growler, we’ll fill non-LAAW growlers of any size as long as they are clean. Check out the tasting room hours and plan your next visit!
