You know you’re dying to come check out our first brews from the new system. While there are learning curves and bumps along the way, I trust in Porter to ride them out with aplomb and skill. We’re excited to invite you all into our new “home” and to join us in appreciating the fruits of our labor.

Smog City is pleased to announce the official opening of our taproom. Join owners, Laurie and Porter Saturday, May 18th from 12-9pm at Smog City Brewing’s new facility to celebrate the end of construction and the beginning of BEER. What better way to celebrate National Craft Beer Week than by welcoming a new craft brewery to Los Angeles!

We will be tapping several beers brewed in the new facility as well as some cellared beers from our time at Tustin Brewing Co. Quercus Circus and Bourbon O.E. are among the specialty beers slated to be tapped for the opening. Please be aware that there are limited quantities of these beers available.

First come, first served. All beers $6(pour sizes vary) and two flight options available. Sorry, no samples. We’re expecting a nice turnout and this will help keep lines to a minimum!

Looking forward to it!

UPDATE 5/2: After running the taproom for the last week, we have realized that pouring sample flights for our Grand Opening event on May 18th will be too difficult to manage.  So we have decided that we will be pouring full pours only.  On the 18th we will be showcasing our NEW beers brewed in our NEW facility and some barrel-aged beers as well.

 We apologize for the changes but we hope you all understand the constraints we are under and hopefully will appreciate our desire to keep lines to a minimum and glassware available throughout the day! Flights will be available all other days the taproom is open, it is just this one day that we won’t be able to offer them.

Many Thanks!!  Laurie + Porter
