- Happy World Dulce de Leche Day!! We are celebrating with a simple sweet treat. Cocadas are a type of coconut confection found throughout Latin America. Mounds of soft and chewy coconut held together with sweetened condensed milk are pretty good, but adding some dulce de leche takes these treats to the next level. These are super simple to make; essentially Continue Reading...Read More
- Carne de Puerco en Salsa Verde or Green Chile Pork is absolutely one of my favorite dishes in the world. The tender pork simmers in a slightly tangy green tomatillo sauce that has a nice spicy kick to it. The combination is magical. Warm up flour tortillas and serve with a side of fresh pinto beans and Mexican rice and Continue Reading...Read More

Dia de los Ceveceros y Cocineros - Homebrew + Food Fest
Los Angeles - The country’s premiere Latino focused homebrew club SoCal Cerveceros is set to launch Dia de los Cerveceros y Cocineros: a homebrewed craft beer festival featuring over 30 Latino homebrewers, a curated lineup of local food vendors, live music, DJs, art and artisan craft vendors. The festival is slated for Sunday Oct, 21, 2018. 1pm-6pm.
Come out to taste homebrewed beer and meads from over 30 home brewers pouring at the festival. SCC is setting a new precedent by out doing their own Coldchela craft beer fest, produced earlier this May. With 20 home brewers on hand, Coldchela garnered the distinction as the largest gathering of Latino brewers ever. Dia de los Cerveceros y Cocineros looks to put an emphasis on food by showcasing an array of independent food vendors from Los Angeles County. Compton based chef, Juan Garcia, brings his Goat Mafia brand of birria inspired dishes. Goat Mafia is quickly becoming known for their creative smoked meat options. With a constant presence in the local brewery scene, In the Cut Kitchen is sure to stand out with their unique style of craft quesadillas. Plenty more food options will be available including vegan fare by Zaneta’s Kitchen. A staple at SCC events, Zaneta Santana’s dishes will have meat lovers reconsidering their options. Many more food vendors will be announced online as event date approaches.
SCC members are known for brewing competition winning beers using ingredients influenced by culture and heritage. Attendees can expect to taste a wide range of unique craft beer. Styles include an array of fan favorites from IPA, Hazy IPA, Hefeweizen, Lager, to Belgian Saison, Witbier and Golden Stout to name just a few. For those who enjoy drinking cider, they have you covered too.
We are not only fans of craft beer but of our local music scene as well. As in beers, our local music scene covers many genres and we want to showcase those talents as well. Chola Orange from La Puente blend a bit of Psychedelic Space Funk for those of you left of center. Bringing an Afro Tropical blend including influences in Latin Jazz and Cumbia, Tropi Corilla will get you moving. We also have a special unannounced All Female Rock Band that we are sure you will not want to miss. In between these acts we will feature DJ sets by La Junta who have been throwing some of the best summer parties in L.A. the last few years. To top it all off, join our strolling mariachi and sing a song or two if brave enough.
Staying true to their mission statement of supporting local Latino owned businesses, charities and nonprofits alike, the SoCal Cerveceros have partnered with Plaza de la Raza and El Centro de Ayuda. Both nonprofit organizations have well over three decades of servicing the local communities of East/Northeast Los Angeles, respectively. 100% of ticket sales will be donated to both orgs in an effort to help support their continued work.
