A Look At Three New Craft Breweries in Burbank (LA Times)
Although the number of craft breweries in Los Angeles has climbed past 50, Burbank, home to just a few chain brewpubs (Gordon Biersch and BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse) has remained insulated. But some veteran restaurateurs and ambitious home brewers have recently staked claims there. One brewery began making beer at the end of 2016, another opened its doors this month and a third is set to start production by spring.

Your Homework is to keep tabs on the Lincoln Beer Co. in advance of their taproom opening in Burbank. Housed in a faux castle building, brewer Patrick Dunn and partner Ryan Lipson have gotten beers out to a few accounts (including L.A. Beer Blast locations like Tuning Fork and Southland Beer) from their 15-barrel system. Candy Fields IPA and Winter Fiesta (a red ale with habanero and vanilla) being two to look for as well as a session ale, a cream ale, and more to come as Dunn gets his new brewing system humming.
