If you have been in our taproom at any point in the last few weeks you may have noticed one significant change: more craft beer fans! Lots and lots of craft beer lovers coming to visit every weekend. This is largely due to our many fans and supporters spreading the Smog City love throughout Southern California. If you have shared a growler, bought someone a pint of Smog City, or worn your Smog City hoodie and shirt out for the world to see, thank you for helping us share great beer.
It is great to see so many new faces joining the familiar ones, though sometimes things may get a little tight on space. Fear not, some new additions are arriving in the coming weeks to help improve everyone’s comfort level. For starters, a second wall bar has just been added along with bar stools for both to free up floor space and add a few extra seats to keep you all comfortable. This should also give everyone some extra elbow room to enjoy some of the many experimental batches coming out over the next few weeks. Kumquat Saison and Hoptango IPA will be making their return soon, so keep an eye on the newsletter for the announcements. Also in the works are two new Saison variations; one with tart cherries and blueberries, and a second with peach and apricot.
Growth is a learning process for all of us and to see so many familiar faces every week helps reassure us that we are heading in the right direction. So keep smiling for us and we’ll keep your glasses full.
