A big spot in Boyle Heights, Indie Brewing is a great alternative to the crowds at some of the DTLA-proper spots. They have a relatively big tap selection - around 17 beers, usually - and rotate through some particularly great high-ABV New England IPAs. We’ve spent many days drinking too much of their table beer Rosé All Day (despite it having name that belongs on a bachelorette party T-shirt), and their flagship IPA Del Rey is always a great choice, too. If you come here during a Dodgers game or a big soccer match, expect a crowd.
