Golden Road Brewery—local purveyor of craft beer—has just announced they will soon be dispensing their delicious brews in Grand Central Market, and they're bringing pierogis with them.

Golden Road Grand Central Market is expected to open in late summer at the rapidly-evolving downtown marketplace, and will be the brewery's first location outside of their northeast L.A. headquarters.

The beer and food counter is expected to offer around 15 bar stools where you can sip from 20 taps of exclusively Golden Road Beer. They'll also be selling cans of their beer to-go, and yes, not to worry, you will be able to bring your growler for a fill.

There's also rumor that there may be a Grand Central Market-exclusive beer.

And about those pierogis: for the uninitiated, they are a classic Eastern European dumpling, sadly in short supply around Los Angeles. And as it turns out, they pair excellently with beer, as Golden Road founder Tony Yanow and executive chef Adam Levoe discovered on a recent trip to the Czech Republic.

While there will be meat-filled pierogis available at the counter, the food menu—which will also include cold deli salads—is expected to lean more in the vegan direction than most other Grand Central Market outlets.

All of the beers dispensed at the counter will be brewed at the company's Atwater Village brewery, and eventually will include brews made at their in-the-works Anaheim brewpub, slated for a late 2015 opening.

Golden Road Grand Central Market will take the place of that pharmacy near the Hill St. entrance to the market on the West side of the building, just across from G&B Coffee.
