The first time I put on this event, in 2015, it consisted of 40 taps from 10 of the South Bay’s best craft breweries. This year we have 19 breweries currently confirmed as attending; the number of taps we will have has yet to be determined, but Tortilla Cantina’s owner Rick Gomez informed me that he has the ability to provide up to 50 taps, so we shall see.
The breweries scheduled to attend, in alphabetical order, are Absolution Brewing, Brouwerij West, Common Space, El Segundo Brewing, Hermosa Brewing Company, HopSaint, King Harbor Brewing, LA Ale Works, Phantom Carriage, Scholb, Smog City, State Brewing, Strand Brewing, The Dudes’, The Honest Abe Cidery, Three Weavers, Ximix, Yorkshire Square, and Zymurgy Brew Works.
The event will begin at noon and run until 11:30 PM, and will feature their standard Happy Hour, their wide selection of tacos, and live music. For those concerned about space, they will be expanding the outside patio and they can put a couple jockey boxes out there which is how they bring their capability up to 50 taps. As it is in Torrance, street parking is free as well as the large parking structure a couple doors south of Tortilla Cantina. Of course, Uber and Lyft are highly recommended.
If you have attended any of the previous South Bay Tap Takeovers, you know what to expect; if you have not, I put together the tap list to showcase the best of what the South Bay has to offer. This year’s event promises to be the best so far.
Tortilla Cantina is located at 1225 El Prado Avenue in Torrance, and they open daily at noon. I hope to see you at the 4th Annual South Bay Tap Takeover. Cheers!
