Smog City Brewing's 2018 Anniversary Celebration!
It’s time to celebrate! Established in 2011, 2018 marks 5 years since we opened our taproom doors in Torrance and 7 years since we launched into this craft beer world as a scrappy little brewery. We are slowly edging towards putting on our big boy brewery pants and this year in particular we find ourselves in those Awkward Teenage years.
Our feet are big, our arms are long, we look grown up but we're still knocking lamps off of tables. This year, we're celebrating this funny awkward stage with a big party, adding some fun new special elements and taking over the parking lot in front of our taproom!
Here is some of the fun you can expect to find:
*30+ Smog City beers. We’ve got an amazing line-up of rare and fun beers for you! There will be something for everyone.
*Housemade beer cocktails
*Games for a healthy dose of friendly competition among friends (Connect Four tournament anyone?!)
*Release of our uniquely crafted anniversary beer, Awkward Teenager!!!!
*Local art on display created just for Smog City
*Instagram worthy photo opps galore
*Outside beer garden with plenty of shade and great community atmosphere
*Smog City resident DJ, Mood Maestros, curating music all day for your enjoyment and dancing (if you so choose and we hope you do)
*Special food dishes from our vendors created just for our anniversary using Smog City beer
