Drink With Santa Photos!

We always enjoy new adventures and our Drink with Santa event definitely fit the bill. For 4 hours, we had an off-the-beaten-path Santa in house to pose with you, your kids(they were brave!) and pets both great and small.

We also hosted our first craft/art fair with 6 vendors ranging from handmade soaps to photography to jewelry and terrariums. All were very well received and so much fun to have in house.

For expediency’s sake, I’m going to keep my words short and just get this post up for you! Pull your photos and if you would like a larger file, email me at laurie@smogcitybrewing.com and include the image that you want.

And be sure to share your posts on-line.  If you use the #drinkwithsanta we’ll be able to see it too!

Thanks for coming out!

CHEERS FROM SANTA AND THE SMOG CITY CREW!!

EK8A2311b

DRINK WITH SANTA at Smog City

Dec 20th, 2015

12-4pm

1901 Del Amo Blvd

Torrance, CA 90501

Santa-SM

We all start writing our wish lists just after Thanksgiving in anticipation of taking full advantage of the Christmas spirit. One of my items was to raise a pint of beer with Santa. Seemed weird and unlikely but when you have creative minds around, anything is possible.

I’m excited to announce that Sunday Dec 20th from 12-4pm, you’ll have that chance (and I’ll check one item off my list!) to grab a beer and photos with Santa…and do a little shopping and drinking for extra added Yee-Haw, Merry Christmas!!

We invite you to bring (well-behaved) pets and yourselves and your kids (if they are brave). Feel free to jump in and if you want to bring kids, please warn them this is NOT Mall Santa. He won’t be rude but he will be drinking(tho never to excess) and wearing impossibly short shorts.

Santa2-SM

Fun times and out of the box events happen at Smog City and if you’d like to know when more are coming up, please join our newsletter! We send out an email once a week announcing new beers on tap and events. We also do newsletter only releases/announcements to thank those that support and follow us. Here’s the link: http://eepurl.com/t0Imb

Along with our Drink With Santa event, we’ll be hosting a handful of awesome local artists! Have a beer, drink with Santa and sneak in a little last minute shopping…I’d say that’s a pretty good Sunday.

To make this all more exciting, Monkish Brewing has joined us in the fun  and will be hosting their own art/craft fair on Sunday in their taproom! Word has it there will be a kid t-shirt screen printer and a baker and some other options as well. Spend the afternoon, cruising between our two breweries, shopping, Santa’ing and enjoying our long anticipated winter weather.

Smog City Artists: Natalie Obermaier, Clay Lipsky, Beth Penalty, Tami Demaree, and Jacquelyn Hyde

THIS SOUR FUTURE – Sour Brown Bottle Release

ThisSourFuture-SM

THIS SOUR FUTURE
Barrel-Aged Sour Brown

$16/bottle : Max 4/person

http://thissourfuture.brownpapertickets.com

For over two years we have been collecting barrels big and small and filling them with beer pitched with custom blends of bugs and bacteria. Our patience has paid off and our first barrel-aged sour release is upon us!

THIS SOUR FUTURE is a red wine barrel-aged sour brown that serves as the introduction to the sour side of our barrel and blending program. The name is a nod to the direction that we see craft breweries moving, as well as a proclamation to what we hope the future holds for Smog City Brewing.

THIS SOUR FUTURE is balance in a bottle.  Bright acidity is held in check by a solid malt backbone, while the subtle wine character is complimented by rich oak tannin. The harmony of this beer makes it special to us and an exemplary sour brown.

This is a limited release of 2000 bottles. If bottles remain, they will be sold on the day of the event.

PURCHASING DETAILS:
**$16 per bottle (500ml), 4 bottle limit per person**
Online bottle sales will end Friday, Dec 18 at 12pm (24 hours before release) or when bottles are sold out. Any additional bottles not sold online will be available for purchase the day of the event.

PICKUP DETAILS (Starting Dec 19th):
Purchased bottles will be available at Smog City’s Tasting Room starting on Saturday, Dec 19th at 12pm, and the beer will be available on draft. Purchased bottles must be picked up by Sunday, Jan 17th.

-In order to pick up your bottles, you will need to show your valid photo ID; it must be your ID and the name must match that of the ticket buyer. No Proxies or duplicated orders accepted.  Smog City Brewing reserves the right to cancel and refund any order we deem in violation of this policy.

*** Bottles not picked up by Sunday, Jan 17th will be considered forfeited. ***

Please note that we will not issue refunds, exchanges, or returns. All sales are final.
