Angry Horse Brewing, a Start-Up Brewery and Taproom in Montebello, California
Montebello, CA, April 24, 2014 --( Heard about Angry Horse Brewing yet? They’re a start-up craft brewery in Montebello, California and they’re all for craft beer, their community, and horses (angry or not). Angry Horse was founded by Gayle Michel, Luis Michel, and Nathan Sewell, three good friends who are passionate about bringing locally-made craft beer to the community of East Los Angeles, Southern California, and hopefully soon, if there is enough support, to areas outside California. Angry Horse Brewing, with their “pay-it-forward" motto, promises to give back to their local community and the surrounding eastern Los Angeles area through participation in various philanthropic and community-driven programs, including a local horse rescue.

Angry Horse brewer Luis, a native Angelino, grew up in East Los Angeles. He has seen the area’s ups and downs. Luis’s mission is to give back to his community and to put Montebello and East LA on the craft brewing map.

Gayle, an Illinois native, is what most would call a “serial entrepreneur.” Gayle, Luis’s wife, started her first business at the age of eighteen. Growing up in rural Illinois, Gayle owned horses. This is why she is so passionate about rescuing horses and giving them a good home today. A portion of Angry Horse Brewing’s proceeds will even to support a non-profit that rescues horses in the Los Angeles area. Gayle is also a proud member of the Pink Boots Society, an organization created to empower women beer professionals to advance their careers in the beer industry through education.

Nathan, a Wisconsin native, is the recipe guy of the group. He shares Luis and Gayle’s passion for going back to the community, and he is personally invested in developing recipes that the community will enjoy. Some of Angry Horse’s beers include their take on a Mexican amber lager, a chocolate stout, a West-Coast style amber ale, and a West Coast IPA.

Luis, Nathan, and Gayle are also proud members of the Yeastside Brewers, a group of like-minded homebrewers located in northeastern Los Angeles. Luis currently holds the position of vice president, and Gayle is treasurer. The Yeastside Brewers primary concerns are the exploration and production of fantastic beers as well as involvement and sharing with the community in which they live.

Angry Horse is looking for supporters and investors to help get their doors open, so they can share their brews with southern California, and eventually the rest of the country. They need your help with their upcoming Indiegogo fundraiser, which launches on May 12th. Perks for the crowd funding campaign’s donors will include all sorts of gear, as well as some limited-time-only items such as brewing with the Angry Horse crew, or the opportunity to have a beer style of your choice brewed at Angry Horse and served to the public.
