Nice to be able to visit Smog City and Monkish so close together.

This place impressed me beer wise. That Bourbon OE is something else. Awesome. Their IPAs were pretty damn good too. All the beers were actually.

A flight was reasonably priced too.

The space is airy as is expected from a massive warehouse and there's a mellow vibe.

Another great stop in LA.

Smog City is in an industrial area of Torrance, there is a small shared parking lot, as well as ample parking on the street. The tasting room wraps around the brewing operations. There's always a healthy array of selections and service is pretty chill and fast. While there is usually fair number of people, the vibe is pretty mellow and fun.

Not the most roomy brewery, but I'm sure that'll change eventually. Because they brew such a wide range of styles, finding a beer you like won't be a problem. Chip Shot is pretty much the best thing ever.
