Does beer have terroir? Can brewers imbue their beer with a distinctive sense of place? Traditional wisdom says that outside of spontaneous fermentation or barrel-aging, beer is too much of an industrial product to carry any markers from its agricultural roots. Of course, conventional wisdom is often misguided or outright wrong, and a few brewers in LA’s concrete jungle are working hard to give their beers a strong connection to the land. And they are coming up with some really unique (and delicious) beers in the process.
