Firestone Walker Venice Hits Minor Snag, Nothing to Fret Over
Last evening, beer enthusiast message boards discussing Firestone Walker’s latest location in Venice, CA mentioned the Brewery Store hit a snag. There was mention that City of Los Angeles officials made an unexpected visit, doubling back on some inspections that should have been made prior to opening. Many fans feared the worst, especially those visiting the location for the sole purpose of buying specialty beers to go. This morning, Firestone Walker released a very brief statement that should ease many people about this news, and we are told by Firestone Walker that this issue should be cleared up soon.
“For fans coming to #FWVenice, just a heads up that retail beer will now be sold at the Propagator Restaurant but merchandise is still available in the Brewery Store. L.A. County continues to make us jump through hoops; this time it’s having more than 25 square feet of beer on display in our Brewery Store. Regardless, we’re still open, so come on by.”
