Like many SoCal breweries, AleSmith is located in a nondescript office park. The only tipoff, besides signage, is the smell of malt and beer wafting out into the parking lot.
Tasting room is newly refurbished and has a nice look. Nowhere to sit down, but plenty of bar and barrel space to set down your beverage.
Tasters of their regular releases are $1, special releases and such are in the $2-3 range. Besides the regular releases, they now offer several seasonals (like YuleSmith, My Bloody Valentine, etc.) and special releases (one offs or variations on the regular releases). So even if you've had everything they offer, there's always something new to try.
They don't serve food, but they don't mind if you bring in your own, which is a good second-best. They have also begun to bring in food trucks every Friday and for events and special releases.
