Brouwerij West is an independent production brewery, tasting room, and beer garden located in San Pedro, California. The company was founded in 2010 by talented brewer Brian Mercer and is now led by Mercer and partner Dave Holop. Brouwerij West’s new home opened in February 2016 in a former Port of LA Warehouse originally built by the U.S. Navy during World War II. Brouwerij West’s operation encompasses 26,000 sq. ft., including 8,000 sq. ft. devoted to visitor use for its Tasting Room and events, and 17,000 sq. ft. as an outdoor courtyard/beer garden. Inspired by the past, Brouwerij West brews its beers using traditional ingredients and methods combined with progressive experimentation to produce its own take on classic Belgian-Style Ales, Pilsners, IPAs and more. Brouwerij West’s new facility is covered with solar panels and generates more electricity than it uses, and its mash filter-based brewery uses 30% less water than traditional breweries.
