I'm glad Glen opened up a homebrewing supply store in Torrance so I don't have to drive 30-45 mins to get my homebrew supplies.

Great location right in downtown Torrance off Sartori and across from Red Car brewery.

The prices are reasonable and the selection is pretty good. Glen keeps a good supply for the eccentric brewer as well which I can appreciate.

The guys there are friendly and are more than happy to let you try homebrew and to help you learn how to brew. They are always having brewouts or learn how to brew events where experienced brewers can give tips.

Overall a great place and if you are thinking of homebrewing or looking for a new shop check this place out.

These guys are on it. All the time.

Their involvement in the local homebrew community is what really works for me. They take a lot of time to keep the shop open and host BJCP classes or club meetings. They're really committed to what they do and it shows in their attitude and selection.

Everyone there is very knowledgeable in the art of fermentation. I'm always hearing discussions of things non-beer like kombucha, mead, wine, and the list goes on.

These guys put the other local brew shop to shame.

This place has pretty much everything a home brewer would need and will also do special orders if not in stock. I live in Manhattan Beach so it's close to home. It beats having to drive 30-40 min depending on traffic to the other shops.

It's staffed by a group of knowledgeable and friendly guys. You can actually hang out there, talk about brewing or whatever and have a taste of their shop beers!

If you're new to brewing you can watch them brew on Saturdays. Every time I've gone in they are usually cooking something up.
