My favorite beer spot in SoCal. Amazing selection, 70+ taps, 100's of bottles of beers. Set right on the marina, just a great place to go for great beer. I've been here about five or six times now and love it every time. The resident band, the Land Sharks, always puts on a good show. Happy Hours are great. The people I've talked to working there are knowledgeable and friendly. Last time I went I was talking beer with the bar tender for a half an hour.

You can get beers I can't find anywhere else in CA. I went last weekend and was drinking a few Jolly Pumpkin beers. Which are amazing.

All in all, if you are in the area, you won't regret it.

One of the best bars I have been to in terms of craft beer selection. Unbelievable actually. Service is not the best, but the location and selection is fantastic.

Good place for a non-drinker to take their beer connoisseur friends from Pariguay.

Selection should be a 6.0 for this place. Best beer joint in the state.

Went during LABW for the FSW tapping event they had. Waited 3 hours in a overly crowded dive bar that had reggae music blasting so loud I could barely have a conversation with the people I was with. The lines were long and apparently they couldnt figure out how to tap the special beer that day. I went back n forth about 10 times constantly kept asking while in a line just to try the beer and one the guys just kept telling me "Bro, youll know its tapped when we announce it"..Well I gave up and on my way out of leaving, find out they tapped the beer and told no one..how thoughtful of you guys seriously. I got what was left in a pitcher prolly half a pints worth and it wasnt worth the hassle. I will not be coming back here for any event they have.

Stopped by a few beers while in Torrance on business.

Had a blast! Great beer selection, though they said it was down due to preparing for the an upcoming beer fest. Live band on the inside; the harbor, beautiful sunny day and fishing boats right outside the windows. Grabbed a Port Swami to begin with, then asked the boys behind the bar what I would like that I couldn't get at home similar to the Sculpin and Wesy Coast IPA they also had on the board. He said Dirt Wolf not knowing I was from PA!

Low and behold they had Pliney!! Was not listed on the board, but they readily volunteered it. Made my day!

A must see...

It's really hard to rate this place. The selection is obviously incredible and the best around hands down. But the crowd/atmosphere is not so great and seemingly not there for the ridiculous beer selection. I prefer going when it's less crowded so I can just chill out and really enjoy what I'm tasting.

Dingy old feel, I was the youngest person in there, best beer selection in south bay. Must go.

Very few women, however very few attractive women are into craft beer so that is a push.

Right on the water enjoy a nice ocean breeze, weekends have live music from a fun garage band.
