Photos from the Abigaile One Year Anniversary Party

These photos are from the Abigaile 1st Anniversary & Southbay Magazine Issue Release party which was held last night at Abigaile in Hermosa Beach. I have to admit, it seems like I have been going to Abigaile longer than that, but the fact of the matter is that we did not even discover Abigaile and the Brewery at Abigaile until last May during American Craft Beer Week. We became instant fans of not only the fine brews turned out by Brewmaster Brian Brewer, but we found the food creations of Chef Tin to be equally worth returning for. Of course, I would be remiss in not acknowledging the positive attitude and genuine thankfulness for the support of their customers displayed by owner Jed Sanford that is echoed by all their employees.

This thankfulness was shown once again at the One Year Anniversary party which included free food and beer tastings for everyone that could get in. We have attended a few of these events and they are always packed, for good reason. The food tastings are usually items that are not found on the regular food menu and the featured beers are always amazing. Last night was the official release of Brian’s first anniversary double IPA, the 001 (Double-Oh One); I know I am not alone in saying it is one of his best double IPAs to date. I can’t wait to try the 002, next year.

Congratulations to Jed, Brian, Chef Tin and everyone involved with Abigaile and the Brewery at Abigaile. You have done well in your first year and you have created a nice following. Continue reading

Fall Gathering Open House at Abigaile, Hermosa Beach

Last night we went to the Abigaile Fall Gathering open house in Hermosa Beach. If you read this blog with any regularity you have probably heard me mention them on numerous occasions as they house The Brewery at Abigaile. We discovered them during American Craft Beer Week when the manager at The Rockefeller recommended them to us. We quickly became big fans. Not only did they brew a wide variety of beers, but they had some nice plates on their menu that made it interesting to experiment. I soon learned of their Chef Tin and was immediately impressed. The guy is good. Anyway, we kept returning and became fairly regular and watched them evolve.

In June we heard Abigaile was having an open house and releasing a couple new brews, so we headed down. I have to admit, I was surprised. Not only were they offering tasters of the new beer but Chef Tin was out on the patio barbecuing and they had a table of cheeses, olives, meats and more. They even had dessert. Oh, I forgot to mention, it was free. When I read on Facebook that they were doing it again last night, we made sure we were there. It was another great time. I spoke with the owner, Jed Sanford, about it and he said he was making it a seasonal thing to show his appreciation to all those that spend time there. Nice attitude, I guess that is another reason we enjoy coming there. Continue reading

These photos will include (in order) the beer garden, featuring local brewers The Brewery at Abigaile and Strand Brewing Co, the food court, Best Pie and Pie Eating Contests and the rest of the vendors.
