This is my neighborhood brewery so I love them! All of their beers are choice. 24th Street Pale Ale is my favorite pale ale and their Black Sand and Atticus IPAs are definitely some of the best I've ever had. The Strand is located conveniently located off of Lomita Blvd in Torrance in a nice quiet industrial park. Definitely worth a visit if you're ever in the South Bay looking for a good beer.

All of the beers are easily world class! 24th street ale is an AMAZING pale ale and white sand is an awesome double IPA, you really cannot go wrong. This brewery is awesome, I would argue that it is the best in LA County!!! Seriously try it....you will not regret it!!! Strand is awesome....can't wait to return during spring break : )

The story of Strand Brewing's breakout success is one of stubborn determination and dedication to the craft of beermaking (read it at http://lat.ms/Tmjn44). Luckily, this two-man operation also churns out some fantastic beer. LA barflys will be familiar with Strand's 24th Street Pale and Beach House Amber, both delicious, crisp and sessionable examples of their style. But their most exciting stuff isn't even available in kegs yet. Strand have a pretty remarkable black IPA that's more of a hoppy stout than a roasty IPA; when I visited the brewery, they had just tapped their 3rd Anniversary Beer, a double "East IPA" spiced with curry, cumin, cinnamon, cloves and tamarind. Strand's experiments seem to be paying off but they brew much more than they distribute. So a visit to their taproom is highly recommended. If you go, say hello to co-owner Rich Marcello. There ain't a more amiable dude in LA beerdom. One caveat: they don't do flights or half-pours, so make sure that you have some time so you can take some time with full glasses of their bigger brews.

I visited the Strand taproom this past weekend. It's a fairly small area attached to the brewery with a few barrels for tables and some chairs. When I went they had 6 of their beers on tap and the quality was great as it was direct from the same building. They had a few special offerings that I haven't seen around in any of the LA bars yet which was nice. Prices were reasonable for pints but the growlers were a bit much. The only thing I didn't really like is they don't have tasters of their beer. However, the staff guy gave me some free tastes before I committed to full pints and he even gave me one of the pints for free. I would recommend a stop here if you are in the area because Strand makes very solid beers.
