Who we are

Image

Dry River Brewing... A thought-provoking name that conjures images of cracked earth and soothing waters, impossible contradictions – and the potential for radical transformation.  Dry River Brewing will be more than a brewery; it will be a meeting place where Angelenos gather to rediscover the true heart of the City, the LA River.
Dry River Brewing is the brain-child of Dave Hodgins and Vanda Ciceryova, a couple of passionate home-brewers and serial entrepreneurs, who love to party with a purpose – for us it’s all about good beer and good food, for a good cause.  

Here is what we stand for:

Local Flavors
Celebraing LA’s cultural and culinary diversity, Dry River Brewing incorporates ingredients that reflect the flavors of the City.

Impact Philanthropy
We will donate a percentage of our profits to non-profits who are enriching our local community, and supporing a richer, more connected, more sustainable LA.

Revitalizing the LA River
We will donate a percentage of our profits to our friends at the LA River Revitalizaton Corporation to support their mission to build parks, pathways, and public art that activate the LA River.

Green Technology
We are busy designing the greenest brewery in LA, incorporating energy and water efficiency in every aspect of the design and maximizing use of renewable energy.

Local Photography & Art
Our labels will showcase the talents of LA’s art community, featuring photos, original art, and graphic design crowd-sourced from around the City.

Locally Sourced Materials
Our brewing system is all-American-made, and we are sourcing furniture and fixtures from local artisans in East LA.
