Cosmic Ales is the second production brewery this month to announce plans to open in Torrance by the holiday season.
The Alpine Village event begins at 5 p.m. and features $5 pints.
Here’s more from the typically over-the-top Stone press release:
Our 19th anniversary beer brings the boom, delivering it to the palate in a voluminous, hop-driven thunderclap backed by the power of our brewing passion and intensity. This double IPA owes its considerable oomph to a quartet of Australian hops—Topaz and Galaxy, plus newcomers Ella and Vic Secret. We also had Fairview malt shipped in from Australia just for this brew. The beer’s striking tropical fruit, citrus and peach hop flavors and slightly resinous and aromatically dank earthiness are sure to electrify your senses.
We have many special beers planned for release to celebrate our 20 years of brewing, so let this serve as the first course to what will be an undoubtedly epic feast for craft beer enthusiasts, with particular thanks to those who’ve been with us for the long haul and helped us attain such longevity.
Also on tap from Stone at Alpine Village: Ruin Ten Triple IPA, Imperial Mutt Brown Ale, Arrogant Bastard, Stochastisity Hifi + Lofi Mix Tape and Go To Session IPA.
The Inland Empire now has a combo beer bar/bottle shop, a la the Select Beer Store in Redondo Beach.
The Beer Room opened last weekend in Grand Terrace and is hosting a grand opening today (August 7) and Saturday (August 8).
The Beer Room offers 10 taps of draft beer, and a smallish selection of bottles to choose from, which you can either enjoy at the bar or take home.
The beer selection will change as kegs are emptied and as bottles leave the shop.
Scholb Premium Ales won planning approval Wednesday from the city of Torrance to become the sixth production brewery in the community.
They plan to open later this year, hopefully in the fall.
If you’re a fan of El Segundo Brewing Company’s hopped up IPAs this new brew is for you, as the brewery explains in its newsletter:
What happens when you add an additional 2 pounds of dry-hop to an already ridiculously hoppy beer. Well.. only good things I can now tell you.
This thing is a freak of nature! Giant fruit comes spilling out of the glass and permeates.. well.. the room essentially. The hops take you on a journey that certainly doesn’t end once you’ve finished the beer.. they stay with you for about 5 minutes after the last sip. And yes.. its DANK.
The beer is only available in limited quantities,, but growler fills will be available this weekend only as long as supplies last.
Experts at Vagabond Cheese Co., will introduce the uninitiated into the world of craft beer and artisanal cheese pairings Saturday in the first or a series of monthly events.
First up is King Harbor’s new Day Drinker, an English-style session ale I tried Saturday for the first time at their new tasting room down on the Redondo Beach Pier.
Should be excellent with cheese.
