Spend Summer Fridays Sipping Local Craft Beers on Thompson Hotel's Rooftop

Every Friday this summer, the Thompson Hotel in Beverly Hills is bringing different local craft breweries to the rooftop, dubbed the Rooftop Food Club. They'll be serving these local beers along with rotating grill menu from Caulfield's (and sometimes Seoul Sausage). Drinking beer on the rooftop with a view of Beverly Hills? Pretty chill way to spend a Friday evening!

(Well, you can't quite get to the pool, though, as they close around 6pm or something every day. I snuck up there and took this photo but then was told to come back down to the rooftop bar).

They initially started with 4 beers on tap but when I went only had two from Eagle Rock Brewery, including the Revolution. Hopefully the more people they having coming by, they'll start bringing in more beers. Ting Su and Jeremy Raub, the co-founders of Eagle Rock Brewery were also there, so this is a good opportunity to meet and drink with the people behind your favorite brews.

When I was there they had three different skewers on the grill ($7 for 2): pork belly, shrimp, and chicken

Here's the lineup of the rest of the season:

AUGUST 23: Strand Brewing
AUGUST 30: The Bruery
SEPTEMBER 6: Ballast Point Brewing
SEPTEMBER 13: Beachwood BBQ & Brewing
