Do you like hoppy IPAs? Smooth, chocolatey porters? No matter what your taste in beer, you really need to stop by Downey Brewing Company near Fairlane Woods Apartments. Affectionately known as DBC by fans, this local brew house was opened in 2014 as the brainchild of three generations of home brewers who finally decided to bring their product to the masses.
DBC aims to make authentic beers with unique twists. Their Irish-American Red Ale is a favorite, featuring American hops in an Irish-style brew. Another favorite is the Mango Tango, a unique wheat beer made with fresh mangos and hops from the Pacific coast. If you like IPAs, you’re really in luck. DBC brews several of them, including their Wet Hopped Doublerado, the Elmo, and the Green and White — the first “session IPA’ they’ve ever brewed.
The brew house does not serve food, but you’re welcome to bring your own in. From time to time, they even have food trucks that visit the parking lot. They always have 8 beers on tap, but they change frequently, so you’ll want to stop in from time to time to try something new. The taproom is open Fridays and Saturdays from 5 pm – 10 pm and on Sundays from 1 pm – 5 pm. They do offer growlers, so you can fill one up with your favorite beer and take it home to enjoy later on.
DBC is located at 13121 Prospect St. If you’re looking for a new home in the area, be sure to contact us and ask about our openings for new residents.Back to all posts
