We attended a training course on Responsible Beverage Service @ Tarzana Treatment Center with 11:11art collective


We do have some construction updates as well.  We have our new set of gas plans in hand.  We will be taking these into the city next week to hopefully get final approval to finish construction.

And after all that updating here’s a teaser pic of our IPA … can’t wait till it’s served!  Cheers and have a fun and safe Memorial Day Weekend!


PRESS RELEASE:  Not just a new business but a new Industry in the San Fernando Valley is growing!  Residents of the San Fernando Valley will have a new flavor in town. 8one8 Brewing, LLC will be the NEW Craft Brewery scheduled to open in August 2015 located at 8951 De Soto Ave in Canoga Park.  We’re excited and we look forward to the start of our journey to create our story in the San Fernando Valley!

What defines a “nano brewery”:  Basically it’s a scaled-down microbrewery, that produces beer in small batches for sale!  Nano-breweries, are a new and increasingly popular segment of the craft brewing world and are intentionally kept very small.  8one8 Nano Brewery usually won’t brew more than one batch at a time, or desire to see our beer served at bars across the country. We’re taking producing and drinking craft beer locally to the next level.



BREWERY PLANS (Week two of MAY 11st-17th) 2015



American Craft Beer Week:  What a great week over here at 8one8 Brewing!  Here’s the update.

May 12th-14th :  We installed the FRP wall panels and 6″ cove base tile in the brew area and wash down areas.

May 16th : We took a break and headed out to the Vegan Beer Fest in Pasadena @ the Rose Bowl.  It was great to get back in the mix at a beer event and try some new beer selections. We look forward to serving at events soon!

BREWERY PLANS (Week one of MAY 1st-10th) 2015

Things are really moving along.  We’ve decided to do our best to post weekly now to keep everyone up to date.

May 5th we passed our Rough Plumbing inspection.

May 6th we had to go back to the city and go over the plans for our gas line and venting for the brewing equipment.  We will need to visit the city one more time with revised gas plans to get approval and pay for additional permits.  We also poured concrete to slop to the drains and to also give us back our floor =)

May 7th finalized minor details for our cold box and placed our order.

May 8th our brite tanks and fermenters are ready to ship.  Gotta hustle and make space for them when they show up.
