In just a few years, Smog City went from a side project of Tustin Brewing to a production brewery in Torrance. While I was casual observer who did like a few of the beers that they produced, I decided to check out the brewery anyway, although parking on-site is limited. When I entered early evening, I learned why I had to wait for a parking spot to appear; it was very busy. Although there were multiple tables and chair in the tasting room, I did not find a spot to seat myself. There was a short queue for beer purchasing, with the tap menu listed behind. There was even a hot dog stand inside the brewery. Take note for those outside the state: only in California do we claim to be healthy by eating organic hot dogs, only then to top it with Cheez Whiz.

With 10 different beers on-tap, selection was no problem (among them; pilsner, pale ale, IPA, saison, coffee porter, imperial stout). If that wasn't enough, there were also several additional casks (temporarily) running. All the standard pours were $6, though sizes may vary depending on beer (8 oz, 12 oz, 16 oz). Along with shaker pints, tulips were utilized too. Both beers that I tasted were executed well with pure flavor (though I had a small disagreement with Chip Shot, there's no denying that it's flavorful). With that in mind and a staff which kept order in the brewery, Smog City is one to visit in South Bay.
