Out with the old and in with the Renew! It’s that time of year when people purge their closets to make room for new springtime fashions. Angel City Brewery and St. Vincent de Paul of Los Angeles (SVdPLA) make donating used duds a party at the third annual Renew Earth Day celebration Saturday, April 22, 12-6 pm. During this one-stop-shop event, attendees are encouraged to bring their no-longer-loved items to the brewery to donate, and then shop fashions and home décor pieces to be newly adored, all while sipping Angel City beer, enjoying food truck bites and swaying along to live music.

Donations of gently-loved clothing, accessories and furniture will be accepted at SVdPLA tents in the brewery parking lot. Guests can then browse the SVdPLA vintage racks for replacements, as well as 20 different local artisan stalls at the brewery’s weekly Beer Bazaar. When hunger strikes, Downtown Taco and Woody’s Grill can be found in the brewery’s parking lot serving up their best dishes. While chowing down, guests can also enjoy a glass of Angel City Brewery’s newest Warehouse Collection release, Oolong Saison. This classic Belgian-style ale is made with tea found in a local Chinatown tea shop and has hints of melon, clove and pepper. For those who like to eat to a beat, The Howling Faith, Vignes Rooftop Revival and Silverlake Trio will be playing in the Beer Hall.

SVdPLA will present a room-style photo booth, inspired and created with goods from their 54,000 square foot Los Angeles thrift store. Event attendees are encouraged to take a picture dressed up in vintage goods and post to social media using #RenewStyle to enter SVdPLA’s Renew sweepstakes. The winner will be randomly selected to receive a $50 SVdPLA gift certificate. Additionally, those who bring five or more items to donate will be entered into SVdPLA’s donation raffle. Prizes include Angel City Brewery swag, SVdPLA vintage treasures and Beer Bazaar goods.

“St. Vincent de Paul of Los Angeles does amazing work within the Downtown LA community by helping the homeless become self-sufficient,” said Mark Turocy, general manager for Angel City Brewery. “To support the work they do and free up some space at home, I’ll be bringing a few bags of clothes to donate and hope our beer lovers will do the same.”

“We are thrilled to be hosting Renew with Angel City Brewery for the third year,” said David Fields, executive director of the L.A. branch of St. Vincent de Paul. “Renew is a celebration of all things good for the planet and your neighbor. Yearly, SVdPLA diverts 200,000 tons of textiles and 800 tons of home goods from landfills, all through the donations from our community.”

Angel City Brewery brews for the greater LA area and beyond at their Downtown based brewery in the heart of the Arts District. The brewery’s Public House features a 19-tap bar that serves an ever-changing roster of classic and newly inspired beer, and is open seven days a week with a full calendar of events ranging from trivia nights to art shows, live music and festivals.
