This week beer enthusiasts and crafters alike will celebrate Los Angeles' beer culture with events throughout Los Angeles and neighboring cities.
Now in it's fifth year, Beer Week is organized by a group of volunteer beer lovers with the purpose of assisting in the evolution and expansion of the craft locally. According to its website, the celebration serves as a promotional tool for the establishments serving and brewing craft and artisan beer.
One of this year's fun features is a Beer is Art exhibit taking place Friday at La Luz de Jesus Gallery. Operating on the premise that many beer drinkers have doodled on a coaster while sitting at a bar, Beer Week organizers approached artists and asked them to do whatever they wanted to transform a four-inch coaster into a work of art. The results will be on display at the gallery at 4633 Hollywood Blvd. through Sept. 29.
