About Golden Road Brewing
Founded in 2011 by Tony Yanow and Meg Gill (the youngest female brewery owner in the world), Golden Road Brewing is the only packaged LA craft brewery. Known for their Golden Road Hefeweizen and Point the Way IPA, Golden Road Brewing chooses to deliver an honest pint with 16-ounce cans. This eco-friendly approach of canning just makes sense- it’s better for the beer, better for the environment and better for taking beer places where glass just can’t go.
