Introducing South Bay Brews News

A new weekly column highlighting the craft breweries, restaurants and beer events in the South Bay of Los Angeles.

Welcome to our new column, which we have coined "South Bay Brews News."

This weekly column, published every Thursday afternoon, will serve as a source for everything craft beer related in the South Bay. With the column, we hope to keep you updated on all the beer events, beer tastings, new breweries and new beers happening in our little corner of Los Angeles.

The South Bay alone boasts five craft breweries with another two on the way. Those breweries are in addition to multiple beer bars that serve up some of the best craft beers from around the United States and the world. We hope that this column will help raise awareness about those businesses in our local community.

All events and happenings are listed by venue and only include the events occurring between Thursday-Wednesday of the current week.
