I visited Monkish on Sunday 1/20/13. Going back to my birth town of Torrance. Monkish is located in a little strip mall off Western Avenue a couple miles south of the 405. Walking in I was suprised how small it was, about 7-8 four person tables with the brewing tanks clearly visible. They had 8 of their beers on-tap, I opted for a flight of 4 (Crux, Red Table, Lumen, Magnificat) for $7. I've always enjoyed Monkish's beers when I've seen them on-tap so I wanted to visit the source. Crux and Red Table were good Belgian-style beers, but Lumen and Magnificat were fantastic and great examples of why these guys are one of my new favourite breweries. Talked to the brewer Henry as well; he was friendly, gracious and willing to talk about the beer in hand. Monkish is a little out of the way, but fans of experimental Belgian-style beers should check them out, especially as a little side trip on the way to the Redondo Beach pier.

Visited on 4/5/13

Monkish is located in an industrial park in Torrance, and has a tiny tasting room with a few tables and chairs. Not a ton of character. You can also go into the brewery, and there is some additional seating there. There happened to be a food truck there that day, which is the primary source of food. Peanuts and pretzels are self serve and complimentary.

A tasting flight is $8 and includes 4 pours - your choice - from a 10 beer selection. Options were Oblate, Crux, Moria, Altar Boy, Galaxy Defender, False Prophet, Rosa's Hips, Select Monk 2, Anomaly, and Feminist. Seme Della Vita, Apothatic, Magnificat, and Matrimonium were also available, but not in the flight. The pours were healthy, and the staff was knowledgeable. Great selection of beers and a good value.
