Don't let the name fool you. Tomorrow, the San Antonio Winery—the only producing winery in LA—is all about beer. The family-owned winery is holding a Spring Beer and Sausage Festival Sunday from 2-4 pm. The beer list is pretty incredible. Here's a sampling of what's on tap for hops and barley lovers: Old Speckled Hen Fine English Draught Beer, Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale and Duvel Belgian Golden Ale; Maui Brewing Co. Mana Wheat, Allagash White Belgian Wheat Beer, Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, Wells Banana Bread Beer and Maui Brewing Co. Coconut Porter.
The beer(s) will be served with German sausages—Knackwurst, Bratwursts, Bockwurst, Bierwurst and Wiesswurst (though we really don't know the difference between them)—German-style potato salad, beer mustard, spicy mustard and homemade sauerkraut; salty pretzels, American Kobe sliders, BBQ pork sliders, homemade chicken and pork sliders with orange marmalade; and rosemary garlic fries.

We're fans of the Maddalena Restaurant anyway (it's a little hidden gem downtown), so we can't wait to see what's in store tomorrow. Best part? Tickets are only $25.
