NORWALK - A new microbrewery will soon be making its way into Norwalk.

Located at 13423 Excelsior Drive, the establishment will operate an on-premise beer tasting service and sale of beer for off-premise consumption in conjunction with, and ancillary in use to a proposed craft brewery.

The proposed tasting areas will provide seating for approximately 100 patrons, split 80 / 20 between an indoor tasting room and an outdoor patio. The tasting room will include a service counter, 19 tables, a bar height counter with bar stool seating, and will feature an approximately 50 square foot area for live entertainment. It will also be visually open to the beer manufacturing areas, through a clear glass wall, so patrons can observe the equipment.

Only beer made at the brewery will be served.

There will be no table service offered, however food trucks will be on site, rotated based on customer demand and scheduled ahead of time.

Operating hours for the tasting service will be Wednesday through Thursday, 3-10 pm, Friday from 3-11 pm, Saturday from noon to 11 pm, and Sunday from noon to 9 pm.

Food trucks will operate from 4- 8 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, and noon to 8 pm Saturday and Sunday.

The brewery will also be selling 16 ounce and 32-ounce cans in two and four pack configurations, all featuring can artwork with the “Made in Norwalk, CA” catchphrase. The brewery is also proposing limited release collectible cans, limited to two 16-ounce cans per person.

The brewery is anticipating that 90 percent of sales and consumption will take place on site.

Plans for this new brewery were approved 4-0 by the Planning Commission, with Chair Rosa Barragan absent.
