    :cry:

    Sorry...as someone who has been with Monkish since the day they opened, this hit a soft spot for me. They don't do as many Belgian style ales as they used to. Feminist gets canned occasionally. I think Anomaly has been canned once. They semi-frequently can lagers, but the only Belgian-esque stuff that gets packaged now are their sour beers, which are bottled. Incognito Ghetto Eagle is probably the most frequently packaged

    Thank you for answering my question. Their IG advertises the brewery as a Belgian Style brewery. So that is a little confusing. Do you think they turned the corner on these styles because of the supply/demand theory?

    ***EDIT*** Correction. Their IG advertises the brewery as a "Belgian-ish & IPA-ish beers" but I think the latter is more frequent than the former.

    It is. And, to be fair, their non-Belgian style beers are really good. Once they started making IPAs, they blew up. If you're looking for other breweries in the LA area doing some Belgian style beers, Beachwood Blendery and Homage Brewing are both fantastic

    Does anyone have any idea if and when the taproom will open? Also their Anaheim location?

    My guess is the Torrance taproom isn't reopening until at least June 15th

    It'll be a matter of time the tasting room will be open. June 15?

    But when Torrance reopens, will it be the taproom we've all been jampacked into before or the expanded space they were set to introduce before the pandemic hit?

    I just hope the can drop procedure remains the SAME once Torrance reopens ... nice to order online and cruise down there within a few hours.

    It’s been ridiculously nice having mixed cases available for days. And mixed cases in general. Really hope they continue with having 3+ beers per case. I don’t need 12/24 cans of the same beer.

    Would love the ability to mix and match all the available cans to build a case but I won’t get greedy.

    I think it might be production has gone up? Tap room isn’t open so it all goes in cans.

    I think JLocoMoco is more correct on the production. I’m sure we’ll see a lot more when the Anaheim location opens.

    4 different mixed 24 packs available yesterday after the Holiday for shipping, surprised. Variety is nice. Had a few Nelson beers this week.

    Went in with a friend since they ship to Norcal.

    Shipping seems more then when I ordered a few months back though. Still GLS.

    Had a few Monkish mixed cases get delivered up to Norcal.

    Sticky Traffic was real good. Nelson was upfront, but still that Monkish Galaxy/Citra mix profile as well.

    Monkish and Other Half collab. Tickle Me Tekus DDH IPA with Citra ,Galaxy and Idaho 7.

    Shocker, it was good...lol...

    Looking forward to trying the 3 others this week.

    I was a bit disappointed by Tekus. Sticky Traffic is one of the tastiest Monkish beers I've had in awhile.

    This might be one of the best of the bunch from the ones I have had lately.

    Bomb Atomically DIPA. Mosaic, Citra and Galaxy hops, big upfront hit of juice. Some bitter on finish, maybe from the Triple DH, more so then the other beers from last week.

    I don’t see why not. There bout to open back up. Restaurant’s and bars are open or getting ready to open. Anaheim location will open late summer. Meaning more Monk cans and kegs for all. If it means more $$’s for them, then why not.

    Funny you should mention that. They keep misspelling my last name, so I didn't. Adriana asked me when I saw her....but they corrected the error

    I can't wait, I just hope they find a way to work in some shade for that outdoor seating. Parking lots soak up and radiate a lot of additional heat.

    They need to copy Green Cheek over in Costa Mesa and throw some cover over that area.

    I parked on Gramercy Pl off Del Amo and walked the short distance there, made my life much easier.
