Very small space. The brewery is quickly outgrowing what is available. Either will need to reallocate a bit of space or it will suffer from overcrowding issues. Great selection of beers. No food is offered. Decently priced, much cheaper than you can order elsewhere. The nitro taps often include styles you would not expect to be nitro. Service is great, but since it can be busy can take a while to get to you. Not many places to sit, and just as few ledges to place your beer so you don't have to hold it. Tasting room is basically the same room everything is brewed in.

Smog City Brewing is one of my favorite local breweries to visit. The taproom / brewery is home to a group of humble, happy and knowledgable beer enthusiasts ready to steer you into a beverage you can't wait to take another gulp of. If you're in the area, make sure you pay this place a visit. Great people, beer and atmosphere. Cheers.

Smog City is located in an industrial area right behind the Toyota complex in Torrance. Also, very close to Monkish and The Dude's. They have plenty of parking on both side of their building.

Once you enter you have the taps on the left with tables and seats around. It's a nice environment to hang out with friends. I saw some barrels stacked, with their brewing equipment visible which is a nice visual touch. Don't forget the popcorn. I didn't notice the popcorn machine up near the entrance until I was leaving.

I had the plum saison and a pilsner. I really enjoyed the plum saison. The servers were nice and friendly.

They didn't sell food, and I don't recall anything really close by. I imagine they're cool with you bringing your own food.

There are four solid breweries in Torrance, and this is one of them.

Stopped by months to finally check this place out..huge warehouse with lots of seating. Prices are pretty reasonable from $2-3 for tasters to your $6-7 for pints. Staff is very friendly and whatnot. Most of the people that frequent this place give off a very welcoming vibe so whether its your first time or 300th time, youll always feel good going there to relax or just randomly talk to someone you dont know. Just abide by their parking rules and youll enjoy it longer!
