ABOUT this SAN FERNANDO VALLEY EVENT

The San Fernando Chile Festival celebrates the essence of what makes various cuisines so special and full of flavor with the most celebrated ingredient, the Chile.

The San Fernando Chile Festival  will showcase the rich and colorful landscape of the City of San Fernando, its businesses and its residents and to nurture artful and economic relationships with all surrounding communities. Downtown San Fernando, since its inception, celebrated and encouraged an inclusive, diverse demographic of small businesses, professionals, educators and established businesses. The authentic diversity of the City’s downtown neighborhood is an asset for the city as it seeks to continue sustainable and equitable business and community engagement in The Valley.

Hope to see you at this San Fernando Valley Event, cheers!

Our MONTH

Less than a month after our final approval and ribbon cutting we brewed our first production batch on the 3bbl system on 9-13-15.

All the brewers and brewery’s we talked with said to be ready for a long day.  All of them were 100% correct!  At 11pm ( 30 min into our boil ) we sat out on the tailgate of a truck eating freshly delivered pizza and we noticed the steam coming from the roof vent and the smell of hops filled the parking lot.  These little moments is what makes it all worth it!  The first production batch to ever be brewed in Canoga Park was in the air.  We have big dreams for what we can bring to the valley with our Nano Brewery and we thank everyone for the support!

We did have a couple curve balls tossed at us but we survived and so did the beer as it started roaring with fermenting bubbles.  Check out the pictures and videos below.  Stay tuned for where we end up on tap!  And of course CHEERS!

BREWERY UPDATE 8.19.15 -> 9.10.15

After a day of celebration we dusted ourselves off and got back to work!  Now that we’re approved by the City, State and Federal government it’s a rush of final paperwork!  We wish we could say we were up to more fun stuff but this is what we’ve been up to:

KEG COLLAR DESIGN & SUBMITTAL ( with ABC and TTB )San Fernando Valley Brewery

Finalized pricing schedule for the ABC posted price listing.  Aligned vendors for all our brewing supply needs!  Kegs, Grain, Hops, Yeast, Cleaning Chemicals …. got’m all! =)

Derrick has also been busy getting the control panel dialed in for the brewing system and the temperature control process for our fermenters.  It has taken a lot of long nights for this behind the scenes aspect of the system.

We’re on target to brew our first batch this weekend! (September 12th-13th) If the beer passes our quality tests we will release our first batch to the market.  Stay tuned for our 1st production release On Tap locations!

NEW 8 one 8 Brewing merchandise and webstore coming soon!  Founding Memberships are also still available.
