As we count down the days (there’s two) ’til the first pop-up Craft Beer Garden on The Sunset Strip, we take a look back to another fun-in-the-sun craft beer day on The Strip: the second annual Vegan Beer Festival!

On June 25, fans of craft beer and animals joined forces to enjoy cold brews, vegan food trucks, sunny weather and live music throughout the day at The Roxy Theatre. The event featured more than 40 craft beers, pretzal necklaces and performances by The Stripminers, The Silent Comedy and The Mowgli’s.

The Vegan Beer Fest was co-hosted by Tony Yanow of colLAboration, the organization presenting a pop-up Craft Beer Garden on The Sunset Strip starting this Saturday. The pop-up garden is open from 12-9 p.m. on Saturday July 9, 16 and 23. In addition to 24 ever-changing taps of craft beer, the garden will feature games and direct-to-table food delivery from local restaurants.
