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. (932 characters)

The service needs to improve. Some of the employees need to work on their PR skills and know how to pour a beer correctly. The beer is cosmic! (143 characters)

Found in the area yesterday and check out the local beer breweries. As another brewery in the area, I found a long line to be served. Had the Sem-I Delli Vita. a great Belgian type beer. Probably shorter line during the week to get a beer but, If it wasn't any good, there will be no line. I was not disappointed. Glad I stopped in. (333 characters)

Very small space in the tasting room, but tables set up in the brewing room double the space, possibly even triple it. Selection is always pretty solid and has a wide range. Good wide ranging selection of beers and never an ipa which is almost too common in Southern California. I would recommend the flight at $8 for 4 beers. Most of the beers on the menu are included so you can sample almost anything. The tenders have the appropriate knowledge of the product and are very helpful. Self serve pretzels and peanuts are available, food trucks are common and outside food is ok. (579 characters)
