As a result, Long Beach Beer Lab is operating as a crucial center of essential goods for the neighborhood. The couple describes their brewery-meets-bakery as being “a fortunate existence” because, while being able to provide baked goods and even fermented products, they also have bulk access to a ton of the basics such as milk, eggs, flour, sugar, and grains like rice. Long Beach Beer Lab is also taking orders for beer and food to-go. Source: Long Beach Post
