Torrance’s newest brewery, Scholb Premium Ales, finally has a soft opening this weekend with an abbreviated three beer line-up.

The brewery will open its doors at 2 p.m. Sunday serving their SoCal Blonde, Roll With Brown and a 6.6 percent ABV Bat Ray Red IPA:

Big hop and malt contributions combine to create this aggressive Red IPA brewed with a spectacular new hop grown by Hopsteiner (Experimental #07270). This extremely resinous hop features tropical fruit, tangerine, apricot, and pronounced spice characteristics. A substantial malt backbone counters filled with caramel and brown sugar flavors.

The brewery is at 2964 Columbia St., making it a (very) close neighbor of Absolution Brewing.
