Visited with my wife on a recent trip to San Diego and Los Angeles.

Tried the following:
Smog City One Step Removed (flight sample)
Smog City Brix Layer (flight sample)
Smog City IPA (flight sample)
Smog City Saison De Miel (flight sample)

Beers ranged from good to excellent. My wife also enjoyed her flight. Service at the bar was fine as it didn’t take long to order drinks. Awesome patio here with a nice neighbourhood vibe inside the taproom. Prices were fair; plenty of parking out front. Our overall experience was stellar, and we would likely come back.

Been visiting this place since 2015 in which their beers had been consistent and never upsets me! They do tend to get a lot variety in which some of their beers are seasonal such as: Snuggle bug; Cuddle bug; at times due to harvesting Kumquat Saison. They have expanded their tasting room by adding an out door patio in which they do have a lunch truck right next to it. The staff are friendly; helpful; and have pretty good knowledge of the beer. Personal favorite: Coffee Porter

I don't think anyone in LA has made more consistently outstanding beer over the last 5 years. I love what these guys do and I always look forward to drinking SC beer. The tasting room is little more than a counter in a brewery but it's got a fun vibe and the folks that run the place are awesome.

Busy on a Sunday night, with the hipster/chill vibe overall. Large selection on tap and many to take some. Bartenders were knowledgeable and happy to explain each beer when asked.

While the actual entrance to this place was initially a pain in the ass to find, once in I had a great experience. Friendly staff, very laid back, and a great varying selection of beers that were honestly all great. Everyone that goes to Torrance hits Monkish, but take the 5 minute walk down the block and experience Smog City too! Great sours, BA beers, and balanced IPAs. A little bit of everything.
