Strand Brewing Co. (Torrance)


Strand Brewing Co. - Another contributor in the craft beer scene outta Torrance.  

Their brewery/tasting room is located smack-dab in the middle of the industrial part of town.

I've had a handful of beers from these guys now and nothing has underwhelmed.  In fact, they have all exceeded my expectations by varying degrees.  I gotta admit though, for whatever reason and unjustifiably so, I set the bar low for for this brewery.  There was no rhyme or reason for it either.  I just kinda wrote them off.  Well, shame on me.  I'm officially a fan.       

Two of the latest beers I've drank from these guys were their Beach House Amber & Batch 100 Stout.  The amber was what I would consider a "session-able beer" for my palate - standard abv, relatively inexpensive beer with enough flavor and hops presence to satiate your thirst without weighing you down.  A perfect brew to have...any time really - to accompany your meal, to pound while watching a game or fight, to quench your thirst while working around the house, or to help keep you hydrated while driving home from work.    

Even better, in my opinion, was their stout.  It's not exactly an all-purpose beer, but it's one that I personally gravitate towards.
