Last year, The Golden State teamed with Scoops to vanquish BottleRock LA + MILK in the first ever L.A. Beer Float Showdown. This year, Boneyard Bistro, Ladyface Alehouse, Simmzy’s and Tony’s Darts Away have all stepped up to battle for a new crown. On October 10, as part of L.A. Beer Week, Food GPS presents L.A. Beer Float Showdown II. Four teams will converge on Verdugo Bar to create culinary fireworks, and the bar that emerges as the victor is up to you.
Tony’s Darts Away is led by general manager and beer expert Paige Reilly. Boneyard Bistro brings the culinary stylings of chef-owner Aaron Robins and the beer expertise of bar manager Rory Snipes. Ladyface is the only team to incorporate house-made beer, courtesy of brewmaster Dave Griffiths. Simmzy’s contributes some of the top beer minds in the South Bay.
Each team will make a single beer float. Everybody in attendance tastes each float and gets a vote, which is judged on flavor and originality.
L.A. Beer Float Showdown II begins on Sunday, October 10, at 5:30 PM. Tickets cost $25 in advance via PayPal or $30 cash on the day of the event, including admission and all four beer floats. No matter how you pay, 50% of proceeds will benefit Share our Strength, which has been working to eradicate childhood hunger in the U.S. and Canada since 1988.
The Golden State was originally supposed to defend their title, but a scheduling conflict precluded their involvement in LA. Beer Float Showdown II.
