"We grew up drinking mainstream beers out of habit. While they went down smooth, they lacked flavor. Craft beers provided increased options, with better quality and flavor, but they didn’t give us the session beer quality we craved. We found ourselves choosing between beers that were great for drinking and beers that tasted great. When all we wanted was the perfect beer and nothing less." -housebeer.us
"Aviator Nation was born in Paige’s garage in Venice Beach, 2006, and has since grown into a global lifestyle brand with 13 destination retail locations.
Paige’s passion for 1970’s fashion and the music that defined that time period inspired her to create her own clothing stitched by hand. While working at a surf shop in Southern California, she purchased a sewing machine and spent nights after work teaching herself to sew, determined to create garments with the same look and feel of the vintage pieces she had been collecting for years." -aviatornation.com
Seven years ago, a group of friends gathered in Ryland Engelhart’s living room in Venice, CA, inspired by one thing – healthy soil microbes, working with plants and animals, can sequester carbon from the atmosphere. Our inspirational weekly meetings became the nonprofit Kiss the Ground. Our first “aha” was soil carbon sequestration, but as we learned more we discovered that communities all over the world have been pushing forward “regeneration.” Many indigenous communities have always practiced a regenerative, stewardship relationship to the planet, although they never called it regeneration. -kisstheground.com

Produced entirely in Los Angeles, Christy Dawn uses fashion as an avenue to respect mother nature. Grab a bite to eat at the charitable Superba Food + Bread Venice location, which dishes up a mean cup of coffee and an array of nutritious experimental dishes. After you finish up there, take a stroll down the street and shop Christy Dawn’s timeless, functional designs. From soft, vibrant floral dresses to 70s-inspired skirts to caramel-colored leather boots, Christy Dawn sells a wide variety of womenswear crafted from deadstock (leftover scraps from fabric factories). Aside from their vintage aesthetic and innovative design, all Christy Dawn products are created by workers who receive high wages and health benefits. Even if you are not staying close to Venice, make an effort to check out this storefront; you will not be disappointed!" -openairhomes.com
Androgynous fashion is on the rise, and we could not be more excited to celebrate this fashion movement. Only a few blocks away from Christy Dawn’s Venice storefront, the Oregon-based brand Olderbrother produces gender-neutral clothing inspired by the changing of seasons. Rather than using harsh chemicals to color their garments, Olderbrother utilizes sustainable dying processes to create jaw-dropping colors that parallel natural tones, like hibiscus, bark, and turmeric. Championing exclusive, natural design, their fabrics are developed from eco-friendly materials like organic Japanese cotton, natural lines from flax fields, and wool blends derived from rice paper. Swing by Cafe Gratitude down the block for a fresh cup of coffee, and then head over to Olderbrother’s shop to scope their denim, indigo, green, black, and tan pants, jackets, and shirts. Offering products that anyone and everyone can feel comfortable in, Olderbrother is perfect for group-style Californian shopping. -
