Located just off Torrance Blvd. in the Redondo Beach Pier Area, Naja's is a little hard to find at first, but then you look at the beer list and know you've arrived. They had 77 beers on tap, many I've had before, but only 10 or so are macros. They also have a huge bottle selection, unfortunately, you have to drink it there, you can't take it home with you, but that's a minor quibble. I spotted a vintage bottle of Stone RIS, that's at least as old as 2005. I had a Val-Dieu Brown on-tap, an '05 Sierra Nevada Celebration in bottle, and a Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle on cask, all 3 delicious. Service was prompt and competent, very good, and attentive. A great beer bar if you are in the area, if I lived in Redondo, I would definitely make this my local. A great place to have a beer and watch the waves crash on the shore.
Edit 11/22/08 - Have got to dock the vibe a little bit. Went here today, it was quite crowded, which I don't particulary like, but can't dock them for being popular. But, the fact that it's open to the outside means the smoke from the dicks that light up up right by the entrance is going to come in. This is CA, we're not supposed to have to deal with smoke in a bar. Went to the north side of the bar and that helped remedy it, but I was not happy for the first half of the visit. Still great selection. On days when it's hardly crowded like Sunday, it's been fine.

It's really hard to rate this place. The selection is obviously incredible and the best around hands down. But the crowd/atmosphere is not so great and seemingly not there for the ridiculous beer selection. I prefer going when it's less crowded so I can just chill out and really enjoy what I'm tasting.
