One good benefit of springing forward for daylight saving time this weekend is that you’ll get an extra hour of drinking while the sun’s out on Sunday.
So from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Hermosa Beach restaurant/brewery Abigaile is throwing its Brewtopia party featuring beers from 23 Southern California producers and an all-over-the-map BBQ menu from chef Tin Vuong. For $30, guests can enjoy 10 4-ounce pours from breweries like Eagle Rock, Golden Road, and Angel City, plus unlimited food, as the restaurant’s patio turns into a biergarten. Spending $50 for VIP admission means you can drink as much as you want.
Vuong, who recently added to his South Bay restaurant lineup with the opening of Hermosa Beach’s Steak & Whisky, will be behind the grill at Abigaile, serving up bites like Korean short ribs, Jamaican meat pies, tempura bacon burgers, katsu glazed salmon skewers, muffulettas, and other drinking food.
