2. Discount Growler Fills and Holiday Hours at Monkish, Smog City Breweries
Torrance's Monkish Brewing and Smog City Brewing will both open doors to South Bay beer drinkers during special hours from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Thursday, July 4. At Monkish, enjoy $2 off growler fills, and their newest release, Libertas -- a Belgian-style beer brewed exclusively with Liberty Hops -- for $11 (cleverly noted as 7+4). A quick scoot down Del Amo Boulevard will deliver you to Smog City Brewing where you can also enjoy $2 off your growler fills on Wed. from 4-9 p.m. and Thurs. from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. the Amarilla Gorilla IPA is worth a try. Since they're both offering such a great deal and you have all those star-spangled events to attend, we highly recommend you save yourself the pain of choosing between the two and go to both breweries.
1. July 4th Beer and Barbecue at Angel City Brewing
Of the few places open on July 4th, Angel City Brewing Co. downtown is high on our list. They'll endorse this American holiday in a truly American manner with flowing pints of beer and a free barbecue. Pablo from Taqueria el Severo will be flipping sliders and mini hot dogs from 1-3 p.m. -- do strike up words, he's a delightful conversationalist. The Berliner-Weisse and Schwarzbier are especially good in warm weather, but be sure to leave some for us! Venture around the building with beer in hand and take in the structural details and art deco elements that make this location as exciting as what's pouring.
