The Brooklyn Brewery If you like beer, Brooklyn Brewery is one of the most well-known and revered brew houses in the country.

NEW

Given that the O.G. outpost is known for being "hidden in plain sight" (savvy sneakerheads arrive at the Boston shop via a Snapple machine), Bodega's 8,000-square-foot LA space is cleverly tucked away in Downtown's produce district. Step through an unassuming warehouse door and you'll find a fruit-filled market, which leads to Bodega's real entrance. Once you're inside, expect to find an entire first floor filled with new and throwback kicks from Nike, Adidas, Asics, New Balance, and more alongside a rotating pop-in shop, where Vault by Vans is currently holding court.

A new addition to local beauty shelves is Supermood, a holistic Finnish skin-care line that is now being stocked at the Gypsy05 boutiques in Malibu and West Hollywood. Adrienne Kramer, who represents the brand in the U.S., said she was drawn to its clean ingredients and quirky appeal. Products are designed for specific purposes instead of skin types. Egoboost, for example, contains chaga mushrooms and is touted as a way to add a little radiance to the face (by way of tightening up the skin); Beauty Sleep gives the overnight skin-cell repair process a boost (thanks to collagen, Hyaluron and Vitamin C); and Youth Glo uses natural fruit acids to help peel away old skin cells.

STORE

Situated in Los Angeles, the fittingly-titled Bodega Los Angeles is 8,000 square-feet and can be found at downtown Los Angeles’s ROW DTLA space. “We approached the design of the store as installation art – where the sensation of discovery overcomes the individual. That journey of discovery gives context to the fashion collections and has also made us a beacon for those interested in fashion & counterculture,” reads a quote from founding partner Oliver Mak. “Our LA space is much more ambitious with the ability for us to create shops within shop & present concepts more clearly.”

The sneakerhead-faved retailer joins a slew of stylish tenants at the Arts District hangout, but be warned: It can be tricky finding the place. Your best bet is to park at ROW's massive garage then walk through the shopping center toward East 8th Street. Bodega's website has a handy map for arriving at its exact coordinates; check it out here and scroll through the gallery above to see more inside the semi-secret store. (Source: uncoverla.com)
