If you haven’t had an opportunity to visit Redondo Beach’s first craft brewery that opened last month, more information is here.
While the brewery is nearing its $25,000 goal, there are still plenty of opportunities to help reach that goal.
Gifts for contributions range from a Three Weavers hat all the way up to a trip to Denver to help represent the brewery at this year’s Great American Beer Festival.
Ready for their closeup: Two of the three King Harbor Brewing co-owners, brewer Phil McDaniel and Tom Dunbabin, pose for Daily Breeze photographer Brad Graverson at their new brewery, which opens its doors to the public Saturday.

Saturday marks the first opportunity for most local beer drinkers to sample the forthcoming offerings from soon-to-open King Harbor Brewing, Redondo Beach’s first craft brewery (and before anyone comments or emails, venerable Redondo Beach Brewing Co. is a brewpub, not a craft brewer).
Select Beer Store in Redondo Beach will showcase a selection of beers from the fast-growing South Bay and Los Angeles craft brew industry as you can see from the above graphic, including King Harbor, which just saw its first-ever keg of beer head out the brewery’s doors this week.
We’ve had Russian River Brewing Company’s Pliny the Elder, but have only dreamt of tasting the brewery’s famed Pliny the Younger, which has just been released at the brewery and will be making its way to Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach and Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach.
However, you can’t just walk in and order a pint of the famed triple IPA.
Oh, no…you have to be lucky!
Eagle Rock Brewery will celebrate its fourth anniversary on Sunday, January 26.
The event will take place from noon to 6 p.m. at the brewery, 3056 Roswell Street, Los Angeles.
Featured will be several special beer releases, including all of the brewery’s anniversary beers (including the this year’s, White Rabbit) and special cask brews.
We had the pleasure of visiting both of Lancaster’s breweries this weekend and discovered that one of them — Kinetic Brewing Company — is celebrating its second anniversary this Saturday (December 28).
The brewery will be celebrating all day with food specials and a tap takeback. That’s right…28 taps of nothing but Kinetic brews.

The brewery is also selling tickets for its New Year’s Eve celebration.
Three-year-old craft brewery Brouwerij West has bounced between rented offices and production facilities in the likes of Palos Verdes Estates, El Segundo and Long Beach.
Now the brewery that specializes in Belgian ales — but has not had an on-site tasting room — has found a home at the Port of Los Angeles in a building right next to Crafted that will apparently include a restaurant much like Atwater Village’s Golden Road Brewing.
That will make it San Pedro’s first craft brewery, although before anyone contacts us, yes, we are aware of the underrated San Pedro Brewing Co., although strictly speaking that is a brewpub rather than craft brewery.
Look for the new Brouwerij West space to open next summer.
And the Street Sign Brewing Co., — or at least the name — is no more.
Read why (and yes, it makes perfect sense) here. A regional name is always preferable to some clever, if random-sounding creation, especially if the brewery becomes the first operational one in the San Fernando Valley, which appears likely.
I’ve not seen a date when the tasting room opens, but judging by their Twitter feed the date is getting closer: they’re brewing.
