The Crescenta Valley Town Council no longer opposes the request made by a local Korean Market for a beer and wine license. In an 8-1 vote, the Town Council decided to write a letter saying it no longer opposed the request of Han Kook Market on Foothill Boulevard at Thursday's meeting. The Town Council had written a letter in opposition to the request in December, approved by a 4-3 vote with two abstentions citing lack of information. Since December, terms have ended for two members voting in the majority, and the members who abstained said they had adequate time to research the issue.

Alecia Foster GLENDALE -- Two men stole beer, cigarettes and cash from a convenience store early Monday morning. A clerk at the Circle K mart told police the two men entered the store, on the 3000 block of Verdugo Road, shortly after midnight. One of the men asked where the beer was and went to get some while the other man at the front counter asked for cigarettes, according to a report. When the man returned with beer, the clerk began ringing up the items.

Laguna Beach prides itself on being an artist colony, where a spectrum of art genres thrive -- but who knew the performance art of beer pouring could fit into that category? This art form will be featured at 5 p.m. Tuesday when Brussels Bistro owner Alain Pauwels and manager John John McEvilly, both Belgium natives, compete to see who has perfected the art of beer pouring. They will represent Laguna Beach in the Orange County qualifier for the Stella Artois World Draught Master Competition.

Back in the day, the only reason I'd visit Tony's Darts Away in Burbank was to see a fight, and I'm not talking about a boxing match on TV. I'm happy to report that urban renewal in our city has extended to Magnolia Boulevard, and the "New Tony's" is a cleaner, healthier, cooler place to visit now that new management is running the show. Tony's is a "niche bar" that serves only beer, wine, soda, meats and breads from the state of California. Keeping it Californian is a unique idea and the big selling point.

Situated in a former Southern Pacific Railroad switching station in Atwater Village, the 18-month old Golden Road Brewery has been aggressively expanding both the distribution of its beers in Southern California markets and the capacity of its production facility. Golden Road has finally opened the doors of its brewery for tours, and you can now see what it takes to turn sacks of grain and bags of hops into cans of Point the Way IPA and Get Up Offa That Brown Ale. Aimed at demystifying the brewing process, the tours at Golden Road are given three times a day Fridays through Sundays, and you can sign up for a time slot in the brewery-adjacent pub. The process of making beer is a fairly simple one, but whether you're a devoted craft beer nerd or just curious about what it takes to get from grain to glass, there is no better way to learn about brewing than by seeing it in person while having the steps explained by an enthusiastic guide.

Hundreds of revelers drank, ate and were generally merry Saturday, despite the rain that peppered the opening hours of the 31st annual Montrose Oktoberfest. Gray skies and steady showers were the primary culprits for the light crowd at the yearly affair on Honolulu Avenue that is sponsored by the Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce. The normally filled avenue in the morning was relatively bare as die-hard festival goers noted the change of pace. “It’s completely dead,” said Gerri Oddon, a Sun Valley resident who has been attending Oktoberfest in Montrose for a decade.

The Montrose/Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce would do well to immediately tackle what has quickly become a public-relations problem, if not a legitimate public nuisance: the nighttime portion of Oktoberfest, the annual event held in the Montrose Shopping Park and surrounding streets. The event, staged in the outdoor shopping area, has something for everyone during its daytime hours: German bands playing for dancing; game booths; a petting zoo; carnival rides; a continuous Bingo game; a nonstop variety show featuring local and professional amateur talent; a contest for Dachshunds and the best Bavarian costumes; plus authentic German bratwurst, sauerkraut, strudel, hot dogs, soft drinks, coffee, beer, and carnival-type snacks.

Fat Dog, the Montrose gastropub catering to locals, was a good thing. Basin 141, which took over its location, is an even better thing. Brothers Dave and Joe Friedman mixed some mean drinks back when they were bartenders at the prior incarnation. Now they're mixing and managing at the new digs. Basin 141 is a vintage-inspired modern gastropub serving libations and bites that appeal to both the new crop of cocktail scene-sters and the classic Montrose regulars. The brothers Friedman updated the interior just enough to make it their own but not so much to alienate Fat Dog or (earlier still)

The man, Juan Peralta, initially told officers he was trying to rush his children to the hospital.

As the L.A. area's beer scene continues to grow, the Glendale Tap makes a compelling argument that Glendale could be its ground zero. After all, the Glendale Tap is just a short drive to two of that city's most respected breweries. What Glendale Tap is a reversal of trends. The city has had no shortage of craft beer spots opening up, with many of them falling into the fancy-pants gastro-pub category complete with a burger that comes equipped with Gruyère cheese. At Glendale Tap, there are peanut shells on the floor, and you can get a pretzel heated up. Though only about 6 months old, Glendale Tap feels lived in. "We wanted to re-create a bar that maybe your dad or granddad went to. We want it to have an old look," said co-owner Glyn Samuel.

Glendale officials have approved the first draft of rules that would for the first time permit alcohol at parks, libraries and other venues - for a fee. Currently, alcohol can only be served at the Civic Auditorium, a popular site for weddings and quinceañeras. Exceptions can be granted by the city manager, but they are rare. If the new policy is approved, beer and wine could be served at such locations as the Brand Park Teahouse and Garden, Sparr Heights Community Center and the Adult Recreation Center after securing a $100 permit through the parks department.

Sarah Gallardo had bought lederhosen for herself and her husband, Jose Martinez, to sport at the 35th annual Oktoberfest in Montrose on Saturday, but he couldn't squeeze into the traditional German garb. Instead, Gallardo, from Pasadena, got Martinez a green hat with a feather and a German-style dress for herself. Their two young daughters wore costumes, too, as they rode carnival rides on Honolulu Avenue near Ocean View Boulevard. “He wanted us to go all decked out,” said Gallardo, one of tens of thousands expected at the Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce event.
