Staff is always welcoming and helpful. Brews are awesome, some of the best IPA's I've tasted. They do some good tasting events occasionally. Only gripe is the size of the taproom. Not much area to sit, especially on weekend evenings. Sometimes they open the brewing area to create more space which is always welcome. Definitely a good place to check out even if it's a bit out of the way.

Located on the end of Main St in El Segundo..if you cant find it due to its small size just look for it across the street from Rock n Brews. The taproom is very small with only 2 tables and bar railing along the wall which gives it about maximum occupancy to 20 ppl if most. The beers are good... No food is served here so plan on grabbing a bite before or across the way if get hungry.

new tasting room is much nicer - cool space, simple, 1 table arcade game. Nice roll up door when its hot out. Can be tight but much better than the old space. One of my favorite spots in LA, get growlers often, started canning some beers. Some of the Best IPA's in Californian.

Support Local! This brewery is one of our friends in the industry. We believe they have a great product worth of giving it a try. Their current 2 releases, The Hop-Tanker DIPA and Smoky Hollow Scotch Ale. Both very different but both very good for what they are.. The Hop-Tanker being just that, a tanker of hops. Smoky Hollow being dark and full-bodied yet not to peaty or smokey, just enough of both with a silky smooth mouthfeel. Cheers Guys!! Keep up the great work.

If you're in the South Bay, you gotta stop by this taproom. It's a little hard to find with just a little sign out front but it's right across the street from Rock N Brews. The taproom is quite small but luckily I got there right when it opened. I got the sampler which included Blue House Pale, Hyperion Stout, Citra Pale and White Dog IPA. Every one was a great version of the style. I love Citra hops so the Citra Pale was right up my alley.

The El Segundo tasting room is located down some steps from the building door (looks a bit like an office building, directly across the street from some proper pubs). There were 6 house taps available on my visit, and 22oz bottles of one variation only (their standard IPA). You can get 4oz pours of anything for $2, not bad at all. The IPAs were OK but I'm not ecstatic about them (hard to compete with the MANY high quality west coast IPAs). The Citra Pale was pretty good though, maybe the best tap I tried.

The room is very small, I estimate it at 20 ft long and 15 ft deep, with a few tables and some seats along the walls. Free nut-type snacks but no kitchen so don't come expecting to be able to order dinner.

Very friendly service, especially considering how busy the place got.

I visited El Segundo Brewing for the first time recently. It's a very small space down some steps with the brewery right next to the tasting area behind some glass. They had 6 of their beers on tap and 2 of their beers for sale in bottles. I got a few tasters that were $2.00 each and the quality of the beer was good. The two dudes working there were friendly and provided good service. Prices are good for tasters and pints. I didn't see how much growler fills were. A cool spot to stop at and I will definitely be checking in here and there for any new beers they are making.
