LA Ale Works

Love this spot. It has a huge indoor and outdoor space. They have one location in Hawthorne and another one in Culver City. They have food trucks and great beer and dogs are allowed. Perfect spot for game nights, btw!

Project Barley

Beer and live music, and pizza. Family friendly environment. Three different locations in the area in Lomita, Torrance and Redondo Beach. Great beer and wine, lovely people!

Common Space

Lovely spot, especially the outdoor area has a great ambience! They host a ton of events, and they are open 7 days a week. Child and pet friendly!


Enjoy craft beer, Belgian beers, IPA and sour beer at this Torrance spot. Outdoor and indoor areas that are child and dog friendly. Nice tasting room!

Smog City

This is an award-winning brewery based in Torrance. They give back to the planet and they even had a food truck! Great beers!

El Segundo Brewing

Amazing tap list and even a food truck schedule. Right on Main St in El Segundo, this spot is locally owned and has independent craft beer.

Hermosa Brewing

With locations in both Torrance and Hermosa, this spot offers great beer as well as a full food menu. Their Hermosa location is right in the middle of all the action! Lagers, IPAs or Pilsners, you will find them all here.

Culture Brewing Co

This spot is one of the new tasting rooms in Manhattan Beach but they have two other locations near San Diego. This is an award winning brewery, nice open space!
