Well, we’re celebrating here at Smog City Brewing! The Torrance building inspector has signed off and all lights are GO. Well, a few more beauracratic hurdles to leap and then we’ll be brewing by the weekend. So to celebrate (besides raising a glass of Smog City XPA at 3:20pm on a Tuesday), we’ll show you the final images and completion of our upcycled taproom bar

In our last blog, we took you half of the way through our bar’s construction. Now it’s time to see the final product. RECAP: We built it from recycled materials: an old wine cellar, the pallet our glycol lines came on, and molding from the Habitat for Humanity Restore. Brett Acker has been integral is building the bar and we are deeply thankful to him. This is a prized piece and we’re excited to share it with you soon.

Beautiful storm clouds tried to frighten us away from priming the bar but it just brought much need shade and a nice breeze. TAKE THAT, STORM!

FYI: Primer in toddler hair does not come out easily or quickly…8 days later, we’re still picking out little pieces.

We left the primer to dry overnight and then back to painting.

We call that Smog City Blue, and you'll see throughout our brewery.

Brett holds the unstained molding in place so that I can happy dance around the parking lot. It's looking good.
