A Potluck Farm Party
Co-hosted by Homage Brewing and The Half-Measures
Saturday, August 12 | 11am to 2pm | Los Angeles, CA

Join us for a special summer farm party featuring local craft beer and local blues music! Complimentary beer tastings will be provided by Homage Brewing, who happily offers us their brewery waste for our lovely compost piles. Homage focuses on Belgian beer styles such as Saisons, Lambics, Specialty Belgians, and American IPAs.

We will also enjoy live music from a local band, The Half-Measures. The Half-Measures don’t cover songs, they bury them. A blues gumbo with a pinch of R&B to spice things up, they’ve bubbled up from the dregs of the Los Angels music scene and achieved their five-year plan to achieve obscurity. They are Joe Keyes, vocal/lead guitar, Simon Landau, rhythm guitar, Tracy Richardson, bass and Peter Landau on the drums. Follow them on Facebook.

There will be no compost or coffee at our August event, but it is still a potluck event, so please bring a dish to share! Also please note the different time – it will be held from 11am – 2pm.
