6th Annual South Bay Tap Takeover November 25


6th South Bay Tap Takeover – November 25

So, let’s make this official; the 6th Annual South Bay Tap Takeover is not going to let a little thing like COVID-19 stop it! Yes, in the past I have been pretty adamant that I was not going to deviate from the “first Thursday of September” and for the first five years, we made it work. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has caused some things to be out of my control; however, Tortilla Cantina has been set up for outside dining and they are ready to once again host the South Bay Tap Takeover.

While our past events have had up to 26 South Bay breweries, with 49 taps, this year’s event will be a little smaller.

While four breweries that were in attendance last year have since closed up (Abigaile, State, Ximix, and Zymurgy), this year we have 21 South Bay breweries that have confirmed attendance this year, seven of which did not exist during last year’s tap takeover.

Plenty of outdoor seating to be socially distant

Breweries that have accepted their invitation to participate include long time participants Absolution Brewing, El Segundo Brewing, King Harbor Brewing, Phantom Carriage, Smog City, Strand Brewing, and Three Weavers; as well as Honest Abe, HopSaint, Scholb, Los Angeles Ale Works, Common Space, Burnin’ Daylight, and Project Barley. First time participants will include Upshift Brewing, Surfridge Brewing, Eureka Brewing, Crac Brewery, Buzzrock Brewing, George Lopez/Ta Loco Brewing, and Culture Brewing Manhattan.

Under normal circumstances, I would try to have two brews from each brewery, but these are not normal times so for the most part there will be one beer per brewery; that being said, I have been told to expect something special from just about everyone.

The 6th Annual South Bay Tap Takeover will be held at Tortilla Cantina, Wednesday, November 25 from 11:45 AM until 10:00 PM. Tortilla Cantina is located at 1225 El Prado Avenue in Torrance. There is no cover charge, and masks are required when you are not seated at your table. As usual, Happy Hour pricing will be in effect from 3:00 to 7:00 PM. I hope to see you there supporting our local breweries. Cheers!
