    the los angeles vegan beer fest has come and gone, i am completely overwhelmed by what a huge success it was! thanks so much to everyone who came out, to the breweries, to the food trucks and vendors, to the folks at the roxy and tony’s darts away, and to all the lovely volunteers. we couldn’t have done it without you! this was honestly the most enjoyable beer fest i’ve ever been to, and i really hope we can do it again soon. here are some pix of the event:

    the official vegan beer fest glass! let's just say this was filled up many times.

    this is what the roxy looked like just hours before the beer fest…

    and during the beer fest…

    unlimited beer was flowing all afternoon thanks to volunteers like andy…

    and gina & aj!

    we got something to eat from every single vendor, starting with the much anticipated doomie’s.

    doomie's buffalo legs. $3

    the buffalo legs were awesome! super meaty with a spicy kick.

    doomie's jalapeno poppers. $2

    the jalapeno poppers were so good, they sold out before the fest was over. doomie’s had loads of other stuff that i didn’t personally taste, but i hear it was all awesome…

    doomie's mexican shrimp cocktails. $2

    doomie's vegan sushi. $3

    doomie's shredded beef taquitos. $3

    doomie's empanadas. $3

    amelia's coconut porter beer frosting cupcakes. $3

    YES, doomie’s did come through with the beer frosting cupcakes! they ran out of these as well!

    doomie's chocolate covered bacon. $1

    in addition to serving up food, doomies had a big announcement…that their restaurant is re-opening next month in a new location. how exciting is that?!

    the doomie’s crew also teamed up with the folks from the fresh fries truck and helped them veganize their menu with homemade ranch and thousand island.

    the vegan fresh fries menu!

    the doomie's and fresh fries crew

    fresh fries with doomie's vegan ranch. $4.50

    vampire repellent minced garlic fries. $5

    curry crazy fries: vegan curry mayo, curry ketchup, and mango chutney. $5

    fresh fries also made a special vegan version of their curry crazy fries (which normally contain real mayo), and it was delicious! the creamy curry sauce is one of the best condiments i’ve ever tasted. man, i wish they had a vegan version on the menu all the time! SO GOOD!

    the frankenstand was also on hand with delicious vegan sausages as usual. nic adler, owner of the roxy, went a little crazy with the frankenstand toppings…one of everything to make a “suicide” sausage…

    the witch sausage made with full sail ale. $4

    i also spotted jamie, one the volunteers, taking a break with a franken. (no bun, for a low carb option!)…

    of course we filled up on mandoline grill goodness as well. they went all vegan especially for the fest, and even had some new menu items on hand.

    mandoline grill lemon grass tofu banh mi. $6

    we can never resist the tofu banh mi, it’s probably the best sandwich in los angeles.

    our other blogger buddies alix and shawn were digging the mandoline grill sandwiches as well.

    mandoline grill vegan nachos. $4.50

    we also got an order of nachos, which come covered in sriracha aioli, fried tofu, jalapeno, mint and scallions. incredible!

    mandoline grill summer roll. $2

    i got a summer roll as well…vermicelli noodles, fried tofu, and fresh mint wrapped in rice paper…very tasty and refreshing.

    crispy banana spring roll roleed in cinnamon and sugar. $2

    mandoline grill hooked us up with something i’d never tried before, vegan crispy banana spring rolls! i hope they add these to the menu, who doesn’t love deep fried sugary things?!

    seabirds truck came all the way from orange county to serve food at the LA vegan beer fest, and everyone gave them a warm welcome. their avocado tacos and jackfruit taquitos were so popular that they sold out before i got a chance to try them. i did get a chance to eat other things from seabirds though, and it was all excellent.

    seabirds burger: seed and nut patty topped with lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles and thousand island. $5

    seabirds locals burrito: potatoes, organic beans, brown rice, caramelized onions, guacamole, and vegan sour cream. $6

    seabirds jerk jackfruit taco: jerk seasoned jackfruit topped with onion, cilantro, and green salsa. $2

    seabirds makes the best jackfruit i’ve ever tried, and lots of people at the fest said the same thing.

    seabirds hummus nachos: truck made pita chips, creamy hummus, grilled peppers and onions, jalapenos, diced tomatoes, tzaziki and cilantro. $6

    the hummus nachos were a new item at the seabirds truck, and they were phenomenal! the pita tasted so fresh, and the hummus was beyond creamy. i hope they add them to the regular menu.

    yalla truck was also at the fest in full force, serving up an entirely vegan menu of falafel sandwiches! i ordered my favorite one, the firestarter, and it was perfect.

    yalla firestarter: falafel, red cabbage salad, pickled turnips, pepperonchini, onion salad, pickled carrots. dressed with shaata (chili paste and tahini) $4

    in fact, yalla truck was SO GOOD, even JESUS HIMSELF WAS THERE!

    yep, jesus came out to support LA's first vegan beer fest!

    in addition to food and unlimited beer, there were also bands playing all day inside the roxy…

    and on the rox, the bar above the roxy, was open as a vip area…

    stairs going up to on the rox. oh hey look, it's paul! the quarrygirl mascot!

    it was super cool drinking at on the rox, because john lennon use to hang out there regularly in the 70s!!

    they also had an exclusive beer just for vips upstairs, speakeasy’s the don…an 11% triple ipa. let’s just say that some very important persons were getting very wasted.

    drinkin' the don on the rox

    after an action-packed day of drinking and eating, we were very sad to have to kick everyone out and clean up. thanks again to all the fantastic volunteers who helped out and got to drink up the leftovers.

    LA vegan beer fest volunteers are THE BEST!

    overall, the LA vegan beer fest was incredible. it was by far the best beer fest i’ve ever been to, and i’m not saying that just because i helped organize it! the crowd was super chill, the food was amazing, there was tons of beer, and nobody got out of hand. i’ll remember it as a wonderful day for the rest of my life.

    much love to tony and paige from tony’s darts away and nic and tina from the roxy. let’s make this an annual shindig!
