Another nice local brewery located in a mixed industrial/residential area with quality brews. There is a Belgian spect to the beers, though with an American touch. The brewer and bar tender were great conversationalists while I sampled their wares.

Visited early July 2016. This was the sixth and final stop on a long day of brewery hopping in Torrance. I’ll be back this year and will aim to start here, as this place was packed and I was beat. Small space with seating for maybe 30 if everyone is willing to cuddle. Taplist is mostly their own beers with a good amount of funky and tart things, and a bunch of NE style IPA things. Beers are good, and service seemed to be doing the best they could to keep up with the crowd. Worth a stop, but I’ll certainly be aiming to get there earlier next time.

Good beer, industrial setting, very busy and a long line to get a beer or to get a refill. Small beer list but a good list. Staff were helpful but could tell this was the norm. Worth hitting as the IIPA’s are top notch. No food but there are food trucks.

PRBeer  (681) Parsippany, New Jersey | March 12, 2017
One of the better examples of the burgeoning South Bay craftbeer scene (along with Smog City & El Segundo). The beers here are great...especially the New England (IPA’s) and the locals know it...so expect long lines. Unfortunately the service here is not good when it’s crowded...not because of the staff...they are very cool and helpful...it’s because they haven’t figured out how to deal with crowds (hopefully it isn’t that they don’t care). They have some serious issues here. Every customer is treated well...problem is...too well for a busy time...so everyone waits...which ultimately really isn’t "well". A 20 min out the door wait for your first beer on a weekend when the beer is this good...is actually acceptable. The problem is...there is no refill line...so amazingly my second beer was a 30 min wait halfway out in the parking lot (cold and light rain no less). Once I’m in...get me my second beer in 15 mins or less. And it’s not like you can get online when your beer is still half full and the line is out the door because it was suggested you can’t drink outside (I may or may not have misunderstood this point). It would also help if there was a separate growler line...there isn’t...same line as the pint & flight line. Again...the people here are great...they just need to figure this out better. We left earlier than planned...after two long beer waits and 2 shared flights...but never got to a pint. I loved the Knack, Never Lack Oat IPA and the Eggs are Cooling DIPA....the Under City Lights 2X Dry Hopped DIPA was also good (all only in flight sizes unfortunately...see above). We never got to the rest of their beers. I’ll try again next time in LA to see if they’ve got things figured out yet.

Another simple, industrial setting brewery. But great beer, great service. And it was busy as hell. I’d like to return when it was a bit quieter.

Ferris  (1458) Burnaby, British Columbia | March 3, 2016
A uber trendy but down to earth tap room. A bit rare but mellow, relaxed and fun. Service was bar and maybe a bit too laid back. Small but nice selection of beers which you can do as a 1 at a time flight. No food. Nice place and decent beers.

Un étoile montante dans la scène rustique de L.A. Henry brasse dans les meilleures bières sauvages barriquées en Californie. La salle de dégustation n’a rien de spéciale mais les créations d’Henry, oui.

Kinda crowded on a Sunday afternoon. Tasting room is separated from the brewery, but you can enter the brewery and drink your beers there as well. Great selection on the talks, and some bottles were available. Service was good, prices average and all together this is a great place.
