After hearing great things about this place, I finally made my way out to Redondo Beach to check it out.

The atmosphere was agreeable. It's somewhat divebar-ish but I like the fact that it opens up to the harbor. I find the open air feeling appealing.

I found the service to be exceptional. They dude pouring me beer was knowledgeable and even threw in a free brew.

The selection is probably better than anywhere else in LA county besides the Stuffed Sandwich. I had Pliny the Elder on tap, as well as 04 Stone RIS and 05 Stone VE. They also had a cask of Stone Double Hopped Arrogant Bastard, which was amazing.

All I had was french fries which I found to be standard so I don't have much to add regarding this area.

I think the value is fine for what you get. They have an amazing selection of taps and bottles, so be prepared to pay for what you get.

Selection should be a 6.0 for this place. Best beer joint in the state.

Went during LABW for the FSW tapping event they had. Waited 3 hours in a overly crowded dive bar that had reggae music blasting so loud I could barely have a conversation with the people I was with. The lines were long and apparently they couldnt figure out how to tap the special beer that day. I went back n forth about 10 times constantly kept asking while in a line just to try the beer and one the guys just kept telling me "Bro, youll know its tapped when we announce it"..Well I gave up and on my way out of leaving, find out they tapped the beer and told no one..how thoughtful of you guys seriously. I got what was left in a pitcher prolly half a pints worth and it wasnt worth the hassle. I will not be coming back here for any event they have.

Stopped by a few beers while in Torrance on business.

Had a blast! Great beer selection, though they said it was down due to preparing for the an upcoming beer fest. Live band on the inside; the harbor, beautiful sunny day and fishing boats right outside the windows. Grabbed a Port Swami to begin with, then asked the boys behind the bar what I would like that I couldn't get at home similar to the Sculpin and Wesy Coast IPA they also had on the board. He said Dirt Wolf not knowing I was from PA!

Low and behold they had Pliney!! Was not listed on the board, but they readily volunteered it. Made my day!

A must see...

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.

Dingy old feel, I was the youngest person in there, best beer selection in south bay. Must go.

Very few women, however very few attractive women are into craft beer so that is a push.

Right on the water enjoy a nice ocean breeze, weekends have live music from a fun garage band.

Went there during their annual IPA Festival--over 70 IPAs on tap and 2-3 rotating on cask. Amazing selection, esp. of SoCal IPAs.

The place is right on the boardwalk. It has kind of a dive bar feel, but I kinda dig that. Then again, it's right next to the beach which helps, too. The place can be loud with music playing from a jukebox or sometimes a live band playing. There is a quieter side bar where the regulars hang out.

Had the kebab while I was there. Maybe I was a little tipsy, but it was awesome (great bar food, IMO!).

Great place--can't wait to go back!
