Venice Paparazzi‘s beer ace Alex Stowell here.   Simmzy’s Venice hosted the second stop on the Meet the Brew Team tour. The brew masters from Burbank, where Simmzy’s recently started brewing up their own house beer line, came down to the V with five fresh kegs of tasty, sudsy, hoppy goodness.

Tips Up IPA, Va Va Voom Double IPA, Makin’ Noise Pale Ale, Morning Session Saison, and Hasani’s Silverback Session Ale were all huge hits with the stoked, standing room crowd. Owner Mike Simms, Master Brewer Brian Herbertson, and head hop advisor Brian Wesley  were on hand to talk shop about the process, ingredients, trial and error, and all the things that led up to this monumental unveiling.

Free souvenir glasses were given to the first twenty folks through the door, and Venice Paparazzi’s Edizen snapped up the last one, much to her delight.

It was a fantastic night at Simmzy’s, which pretty much every night is.  Simmzy’s has it all: 26 draft beers, $4 and $5 happy hours, a super fun, friendly staff, monster burgers, fish tacos, wings, brussel sprouts and more as well as  an open air view of Washington Square.  If you have not been, you should go, if you have, you already know.  Go Simmzy’s.
