Comments: Canít recommend visiting Strand because they donít offer sampler flights and their beers are readily available in stores in bottles. If some of their specialty beers arenít readily available like the double IPAs, well, then you have to drink a full pour of them in a venue that is not close to anything else so youíd have to have a DD or call a cab. So, sort of a bizarre business plan here that was quite surprising. They will do splashes of beer for free so you can sample before you commit to a full pour, but...that isnít quite the same as a sampler flight and is presented under the assumption you will then buy a full pour of something. So, since we were brewery hopping, that beer happened to be whatever was lowest abv. $4-5 pints for the most part.

Small tasting room with a bar for ordering and a handful of seats. Bottles of all their beers available, which I didnít realize. They donít offer flights, but you can just ask to try anything you want. Some stuff I hadnít seen around available, very friendly and helpful service, and a nice laid back atmosphere.

Located in an industrial area, this young brewery is producing some fine brews for the local clientele. I had previously enjoyed their wares while visiting Najaís on previous visits, and finally had the chance during my last LA trip to stop here. The staff is quite friendly and ready to engage in conversations, beer related or not. This is definitely worth the stop, and you are likely to find something new from the fermenter.

Small industrial park tasting room quite a few miles off the 405. Some easy parking. Plenty of tap handles and 4 beers commercial beers on tap (you might also get to try one or two other pilot beers that are not rateable if you talk to the right person). The always talkative and pleasant Rich was working the bar when I was there. Decent crowd. Prices are either $5 or 6$ for a pint. They also sell 32oz growlers to go. A decent stop for the area.

New tap room at Strand Brewing. The space is still being finished out, but still cool. Hanging out in the actual brewery. Only had 4 beers on tap, plus one special cask. There are a few special ones on tap that I was able to sip, but not yet available for pours. $10 for growlers plus the fill. Decent deal.
