eagle rock brewery!

while eagle rock is technically not pasadena, i'm going to adopt it for the purpose of proclaiming that we have one more microbrewery on the local landscape! we recently visited as a part of their opening weekend and were extremely excited to be shown the facility by jeremy - the head brewer and co-owner, and his wife ting - marketing extraordinaire and perfect pint pourer. you can tell that they are extremely passionate about their beer, and are working at making their brewery one of a kind.

eagle rock brewery has done an amazing job of documenting their hard work at reaching this stage in their business. they have updated almost every moment in the process through their fantastic blog.

if you are interested in visiting, they are open by appointment this coming weekend from 4pm-10pm on saturday and sunday. give them a call at 323.257.7866 with your name, date, time and number of guests, and have a great time!

oh ya, i need to give a shout out to my friend ryan who took these pictures for me because i forgot my camera! what was i thinking???

Here's a dumb question ("there are no stupid questions!"): what's de difference btween a Micro & Macro-Brewery. Is it similar to what I learned about micro & macro-economics?

Not a dumb question at all.

The classification between micro and macro has to do with the amount of beer produced within a given year. This amount varies by region and governing board, but generally the line is around 15,000 barrels.

The Wikipedia article is probably a good place to start to learn all the variations...

As you say Eagle Rock is not Pasadena then again the Eagle Rock Brewery isn't in Eagle Rock....Glassell Park 90065

True enough. Just south of Eagle Rock I guess.
