Where is the best place for beer in LA?

There are a bunch of microbreweries popping up in the south bay. Torrance specifically.

I'd recommend checking out Smog City Brewing Co LLC. They have quite the variety of beers but if you're a coffee person at all I recommend getting the Coffee Porter. This may sound bold, but I think its the best beer on the market right now. There is also Strand Brewing Co which has been around the longest. They have a very good 24th Street Pale Ale and their IPAs are on point as well.Monkish Brewing Co. goes with more of the Belgian style beers. Saisons and what not. They have a ton of beers. I'm not the biggest fan of them but I have friends who love their beers. (I'm more of an IPA guy)They're relatively new, but I would check out King Harbor Brewing Company. They mess around with strawberry beers a stuff but I'd go for the IPA.The Dudes' Brewing Co has an amazing beer called Grandma's Pecan. It taste just like Pecan Pie and I love having a few in the fall. I don't think their tasting room is open yet but it should be soon.If you head up to El Segundo you can always check out El Segundo Brewing Company. The White Dog IPA is great and they're conveniently located across the street from Rock & Brews where you can get all of these local beers.Lastly if you make it to Redondo Beach there's a great beer store called the Select Beer Store. They have a bunch of local brews on tap as well as a huge selection of bottled beers from around the world.Most of the beers I've listed can be found at Rock & Brews in El Segundo, Rock & Brews PCH, Simmzy's, Father's Office in Culver CIty or Father's Office in Santa Monica. The South Bay is killing right now with microbreweries!

Notable Mention: If you can find it, Bootlegger's Brewery has a really good Pumpkin Ale.

UPDATE: The Dudes' Brewing Co. has now opened their tap room.

Hey Josh!

Were you looking for breweries or bars?

I'm not too familiar with LA breweries but I can give you some bar recommendations that have a great selection of beers! 

Venice Ale House has a lot of good options, plus a beautiful ocean view. 

Surly Goat is a popular spot. They have a ton of unique beers and a well-informed staff. 

Father's Office in Santa Monica is known for their great burgers but they also have a solid beer selection as well.

 Hope that helps!

Not technically in LA, but I would recommend Beachwood BBQ & Brewingin Long Beach or Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach.

Also near the LA area are The Bruery, which isn't all that far from Disneyland, and Stone Brewing Company now has a location in Pasadena as well.
