Brew day with Ladyface Ale's Cyrena Nouzille and David Griffiths

Discussing women in craft beer and a video of brew day

Ladyface Alehouse & Brasserie sits at the bottom of the Ladyface Mountain in Agoura Hills, CA about 35 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Co-owner Cyrena Nouzille and brewmaster Dave Griffiths have been producing beers at this location since November of 2009.

Besides the Agoura Hills restaurant, craft beer lovers can try their brews at Southern California bars like Library Alehouse in Santa Monica, Tony’s Darts Away in Burbank and Far Bar in Little Tokyo to name a few. As the Ladyface team is getting ready to plan their 2nd anniversary in January, we visited brewmaster Dave and Cyrena during one of their brew days to chat about expanding the brewery, homebrewing and women in the beer industry.
