Best Beers for March Madness

Eagle Rock Brewing Equinox
Host city: Los Angeles

L.A.: Great basketball city, terrible beer town.

What's the problem? Is it all the driving? That hasn't killed the bars or made the cocktails suck, so no. Is it the real estate prices? Fickle tastes? The logistical difficulties of squeezing a kettle and mash tun into a food truck?

We're not sure, but basically Los Angeles has way fewer breweries per capita than its California neighbors and shamefully few for a city of its size. Eagle Rock, the first brewery in Los Angeles in nearly 60 years when it opened, has been trying to change that a bit by giving L.A. a small brewery and tasting room while not playing it safe with the offerings.

Equinox is a mild, barrel-aged Belgian sour blonde ale that blends citrus with earthier, fruitier flavors that overwhelm palates accustomed to more Teutonic brews. At 6% ABV, though, it's not nearly as potent as the Belgian styles it's emulating and is a great gateway beer for L.A. drinkers baby-stepping away from Heineken and Old Fashioneds.
