Exciting day yesterday. Super excited about the LA Weekly article declaring us the #1 brewery to watch in 2013. Best quote: “…L.A. brew fans await the official arrival of what could very well be L.A.’s new signature brewery.” Humbling…but believe me, we’re going to do everything in our power to live up to that expectation…and more.

2013 will be the year of innovation, exploration and creativity at Smog City Brewing. Porter is anxious to get into the swing of things in our new facility and bring some beers to really knock your socks off. A recent addition to our portfolio is AMARILLA GORILLA. This might possibly be my new favorite IPA. It’s nothing like the SMOG CITY XPA, it’s nothing like HOPTONIC IPA, it revels in its own identity. You’ll see this beer popping up in select bars and restaurants around LA during its inaugural and limited release…but I am sure it will become a mainstay in the Smog City line-up! We’d love to hear what you think about it and our other beers! Leave us comments below!

In construction news: Walked into the brewery today and it is beginning to look like a brewery…or at least more than just a gigantic warehouse! We’ve got a floor and our second bathroom is going in! Take a look.
