Known for their ales, lagers, and IPAs, Common Space Brewery is a hidden gem located in the South Bay community of Hawthorne near the Los Angeles Airport. They independently brew craft beer featuring a full-sized production system that makes nearly 800 gallons of beer at a time, and a small-scale pilot batch system that makes just a few keg’s worth. There is even a spacious on-site taproom with 1,000-square-foot outdoor patio that was inspired by and designed to replicate the beer gardens of Munich.
Brewmaster Kushal Hall leads the brewery with autonomy in developing recipes from scratch and believes “Great Beer Gives Back”. His newest brews were inspired by Black Lives Matter, with a focus on advancing the Equal Justice advocacy work including Black Is Beautiful, with proceeds going to Campaign Zero, and Take Action, a citra-forward IPA with all proceeds going to Black Lives Matter LA. The Take Action IPA can art was created by Devon Blow, with a focus is to inspire and empower vulnerable, marginalized, neglected and disenfranchised communities; and to celebrate cultural expression in all forms.
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, try the newly released Coolhaus Awesome Ice Cream Beer inspired by the Chocolate Chip Tahitian Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Sandwich from Coolhaus. The brews are available at Common Space Brewery for pick up, local delivery, and at select retailers.
