Another warehouse type beer bars with a tiny bit of flair. Service is bar only with some people who know their stuff. Selection is large and some of the best beers i have had in LA. Decent pricing and in my opinion one of the jewels of the area.

Nice place very close to Monkish. Quite crowded on a sundayafternnon and we had to wait in line for quite a while before getting our beers. The tasting room is in the brewery, and that adds to the atmosphere. Had a flight of beers, and they were fresh and tasty. Cool place.

Great relatively new small brewery in formerly craftbeer starved LA (boy is that starting to change quickly...especially in South Bay). They had 13 bars on tap when I visited recently. I tried every last one of them via flights. I was particularly impressed with the Hoptonic IPA, Chip Shot Coffee Porter, Smoochin Capuchin, California Love, and Peach Saison. Best part though was the vibe and the crowd. The place was loud but in a fun way...as everyone was interacting with each other...so that’s a lot more fun then just talking to the bartender! Speaking of which...they staff was great...interacting with the crowd and making for a very enjoyable evening. I highly recommend a visit here to sample the rapidly growing Torrance and South Bay craftbeer scene.

Visited yesterday. Nice place, very open tasting area lots of room. Beers were all good to very good. Friendly staff. Tasters are cheap and the beer was good. Nice place to visit, and well worth it.

Aesthetically, a fairly bland brewery inside a little industrial park. Lots of barrels all about. I only had 2 of the beers but they were very good. Prices seemed a bit high. Growlers were super pricey. No thanks. Service was friendly - almost too friendly - it was kind of a chore getting a beer because the staff was so chatty with patrons. I will definitely head back again when I have a little more time.

Visited this place on a recent trip to SoCal. I’ve heard of these guys, but honestly the buzz has been pretty silent on the north side of the state… anyway, it looks like a typical small industrial park brewery from the outside, but inside it’s tastefully designed with lots of space for relaxing with friends. There could’ve been a few more places to sit, but what the hey… They had an impressively massive tap list with lots of beers, at least 16 or so. Most of which were hoppy styles and variants of other styles with hoppy profiles. Most of the beers were really good. In fact, very good IMO. They do samplers of however many you want, and the service was very polite and prompt despite being busy. Overall, I was really glad I visited this place due to the quality of the beers and the fact that they were most likely unavailable anywhere else.
