About Us

Lawless Brewing was founded in 2010 by owners Ben & Whitney Wallace. The husband-and-wife team have won a combined 10 Emmy Awards working as producers for the iconic television show Entertainment Tonight, but their love for craft beer blossomed shortly after Ben purchased a small homebrewing kit. A friend who noticed the beer fermenting in the closet exclaimed “It’s Lawless up in here!” The name stuck. Ben began brewing with his good friend Aaron Rainwater in 2013; they began formulating and perfecting recipes, and the seeds to start a business were planted. 8 years later, we’ve finally arrived in North Hollywood. It’s time to get Lawless!
