Monkish Brewing Co. | South Bay | American | Restaurant
Monkish Brewing Co. feels like the best kept beer secret of the South Bay. Located in a modest business park along Western Avenue in Torrance, you won't find the usual bells and whistles that alert you to the presence of fine, craft beer: The beer is speaking for itself. Open just over three months, you can sample their wares at the brewery and tasting room or any of a wide array of bars in L.A. and Orange Counties. Henry and Adriana Nguyen's brewery is a true family operation; with no outside investors or big advertising campaigns, the married couple depends on word of mouth and their participation in events to bring in clientele. Their tasting room is open Thursday through Sunday and carries about ten beers on tap, from blondes like Oblate to Belgian pale ales like Altar Boy, to Saisons like Floriason and amber ales including Red Table.
