The upcoming Shmaltz events mark the Los Angeles debut of Coney Island Freaktoberfest™.

LA Beer Week will also celebrate the official California launch of Jewbelation Bar Mitzvah, our newest anniversary ale, brewed with 13 malts, 13 hops, and punching in at 13% alcohol to celebrate our 13th anniversary.
