After about a year of planning, the barely two-year old Smog City Brewing finally has its very own diggs!
When head brewmaster Jonathan Porter and team started brewing in 2011, they were doing it all within the Tustin Brewing Company facilities. For a while there, Smog City brews were either hard to find or not being released, but now that the new facility is up and running, you will be finding delicious brews like the award-winning Groundworks Coffee Porter on tap around Southern California. In other words, the brews are kegged and ready for pickup tomorrow morning!
Taproom hours are Thursday and Friday from 4-9:00 pm, and Saturday from noon to 8:00 pm.We got a look at the new 5,500 square foot Torrance facility in May, just a stone’s throw from Monkish Brewing and Dudes Brewery. The new taproom features up to 20 taps pouring Smog City’s delicious and exclusive brews, like Weird Beer (highly recommended) and the Sabre-Toothed Squirrel (a deliciously bitter amber).
If you missed the grand opening celebration and haven’t been yet, Friday June 7 is a good excuse to get over there. Mayor Frank Scotto of Torrance and the Torrance City Council will be attending the brewery’s official ribbon cutting ceremony at 4:00 pm, and until 5:00 pm all full pours will be $1 off.
Smog City does not disappoint – go check it out!
