The Brewery is a 22-building complex on 23 acres, comprised of a variety of structures, with some dating back to 1888. It includes a combination of the former Eastside and Pabst Blue Ribbon Breweries, from which the community derives its name, as well as one of Los Angeles' first power plants, Edison Power Station #3. It is considered the world’s largest live-work arts complex with an estimated 500 resident and day-use artists representing every field of creation. It is located at the Main Street exit of the 5 Freeway in downtown Los Angeles and is most easily accessed though one of its three entrances by turning south onto Moulton Avenue from Main Street.
The Brewery hosts an artwalk twice anually (Spring and Fall) during which more than one hundred artists open their studios to the public. More information about the original Brewery Arwalk can be found here: http://breweryartwalk.com
