Now that Memorial Day has passed, it’s time to start soaking in the season. With BBQs every weekend, girls gallivanting around in white dresses and swamp ass destroying any chance you might’ve had with these girls, summer in LA can get rough…The one thing that can change all of this? Probably better shorts and a good AC… but other than that?

A nice cold brewsky.

One of the country’s best beer festivals, LA’s Beer Week, is returning for the 7th year, to help hydrate your soul and refresh your palate. From June 20th to the 28th, you can enjoy a week filled with unforgettable beer drinking events, like Kick the Keg at City Tavern Culver City, where 11 breweries compete for Tavern Czar; the Eagle Rock Public House’s Brewmasters’ Pairing Dinner; over 5K city wide Tap Takeovers like the Smog City takeover at Library Alehouse, and so many more delectable activities!

In order to prep your kidney for the week’s events you’ll definitely need to make your way to Exposition Park on June 20th. At the Beer Week Kickoff party you’ll enjoy two stages with live tunes and educational panels; 70 breweries including local faves like High Park Brewery, El Segundo Brewing and more; and a VIP tent for those who like to feel fancy. For the high rollers out there, you can enjoy even more specialty pours, eats and even a photo booth so you can take tons of drunken pics you’ll be sure to regret later.

So step out from behind that AC and head to Beer Week to take your mind off that sweat dripping down your leg.
