Smog City Brewing Co. (Torrance)


Their logo - I love it.

Their hours for the upcoming weeks.  Grand opening coming soon.

The facility.  

Beer through the right entryway.

Ahhhh yes.  Welcome! 

 I get so giddy walking into a new brewery.

The menu on 4.26.13.

For an additional $2, you can order a flight of all 5 so I did just that.  

My favorites were their coffee porter, sabre toothed squirrel and bourbon red.  All different in style, and all equally delicious. 

Inside the tasting room.  

I love drinking right next to all the tanks and barrels.  I miss that about The Bruery's new tasting room and Eagle Rock's brewery doesn't even have that feel cuzz it's so small.

The scene within minutes of opening. 

For the time being They don't have a paddle or carrying case for flights so be prepared to make a couple of trips to your table or barrel.  Space is limited so if it's full, you'll be better off ordering by the pint.  

I love the colors, the styles, the distinct and subtle flavors.

I don't remember if I've had brews from Smog City before this trip.  Their coffee porter rings a bell for me, but I could be mistaken.  In any event, I'm a big fan of what they are doing here.  After The Bruery, this is my favorite "local" brewery.  And damnit, it's right around the block from Monkish.  Slightly further down is Strand Brewing Co.  Coming soon is The Dudes Brewing Co and just up the freeway is El Segundo Brewing Co.  I'm envious of the beach cities right about now.  Breweries are opening all around me, yet here I am still hoping for our first craft-beer centered bar in South Gate.  Hurry up already, Hops & Barley Alehouse!
