Show 565, February 17, 2024: Creature Comforts Brewing Co. DTLA with Jake Wood Part One

Jake Wood of Creature Comforts Brewing Company

Creature Comforts Brewing Company, an award-winning, purpose-driven craft brewery based in Athens, GA, opened its second taproom and brewery locally late last year. Located in City Market South, nestled in the Fashion District of downtown Los Angeles at 1124 San Julian St., the Creature Comforts DTLA site is the brewery’s first expansion beyond its home state of Georgia.” It’s in the same food-centric development with Steve and Dina Samson’s Rossoblu and Celebrity Chef Antonia Lofaso’s, Dama.

“Having previously collaborated with several breweries in Los Angeles, Creature Comforts sought to build a world-class brewery that allows the team to make beers locally and truly become a part of the Los Angeles beer community.” Jake Wood heads the Los Angeles venture.

“The state-of-the-art facility has a 3,000 square-foot taproom and a 10,000 square-foot production facility. The taproom is in a reclaimed historic space that incorporates numerous items representing its roots. Situated on a bustling piazza near top restaurants and coffee shops, guests can order from nearby Superfine Pizza to be delivered to their taproom table. The brewery offers extensive outdoor seating with a beer garden and an upper-level covered patio with views of the city skyline. With private event space, bocce ball court and cornhole, the space is flexible to meet the needs of its guests.”

“Known for its wide range of highly rated beers, the Creature Comforts line-up includes year-round and seasonal offerings such as Tropicália (American IPA), Classic City Lager (Lager), Bigger Dreams (Hazy IPA), Cosmik Debris (Double IPA) and others. Limited releases range from Hazy Double IPAs and Fruited Berliner Weisses to rustic barrel-aged farmhouse-style ales using locally sourced ingredients. Creature Comforts DTLA also produces select beers exclusively for the California market.” Just released in draft is DTLA IPA, a new West Coast IPA.

“Since launching in 2014 in downtown Athens, GA, home to the University of Georgia, Creature Comforts has electrified the craft beer community with its year-round and limited-release beers, with sales skyrocketing them to be the number one craft brewer in Georgia.”
