Smog City Brewing

$$$$(310) 320-7664
Hours:TUESDAY3:00PM to 10:00PM

The industrial South Bay is considered the Holy Land of LA’s rising craft beer scene, and amidst that impressive heap of craft breweries sits Smog City. Cranking out beer that has beer snobs losing their minds, Smog City’s bare bones tap room is a must-visit on anyone’s LA craft beer tour. While the list of taps is impressive across the board, going for their Coffee Porter is a sure fire hit. That is, if you like beer that tastes like cold brew coffee and will have you rolling around under the table after one pint. For the truly adventurous beer drinker in the group, get a glass of Infinite Wishes - their bourbon barrel-aged stout they only release once a year and checks in at a whopping 12% abv. Hello, goodbye.
