In the last few years, I’ve participated with Andrea of EatDrinkAndBeHoppy and contributed my photos to her interviews. On a workday, we hustled up to DTLA to have a quick shoot at Dry River Brewing. It was a trip to preview their brewing space before they open their tasting room, and get a feel of their steampunk meets Ron Swanson decor. If Ron Swanson was into decoration-only gears, this is how I think his brewery would look. There was beautiful woodworking featured tastefully throughout the room, and it had this subtle charm that brought a smile to my face.


Dry River sounds pretty exciting. Their mission is slow beer that is brewed responsibly and seasonally. On top of being sustainable, they are contributing to the community in other ways through local non-profits like CicLAvia, the LA Community Gardening Council, Fruta Y Cultura, the Arts Earth Partnership, and From Lots To Spots, etc. I find that refreshing since it’s easy to get sucked into the fast and competitive beer world. Here’s the whole interview.
