Places We Like – Strand Brewing Company in Old Torrance

If you like craft beer and the feeling that you’re in a “locals” type place, you may want to visit the Strand Brewing Company tap room.    It’s not a fancy place but has that cool vibe that you’ve found something that the tourists don’t know about.  As it’s a working brewery it’s basically part of their warehouse and brewery with a few park bench style tables.  They have shuffle puck, those bean bag toss games and videos of surfing but that’s about it.  They could do with a few TV’s to give it a bit more of a “bar” feel but as that’s not really what it is…who am I to give advice.  They have a great variety of beers and the people are very friendly.

They usually have several great beers on tap (brewed about 20 feet away) and although they don’t serve food there are “guest” restaurants and food trucks a few times a week.    If a casual off the beaten track experience is what you’re looking for…this could be your place.

Torrance has a beach?

By Keith KyleRAT Beach below Paseo De La Playa in Torrance

If you look at a map of the South Bay it certainly appears that Torrance lies just east of Redondo Beach and the closest point to the ocean is a mile or two.  That’s not the case as the Hollywood Riviera, with it’s Redondo zip code and mailing address, is actually the city of Torrance with Torrance schools, services, and more.  Included in this small area is actually a beach affectionately known as “RAT” Beach.  It’s not as bad as it sounds as it actually is short for Right After Torrance but either way it’s a beautiful, yet short, stretch of coastline unlike anything Queens Necklace Views in the South Bayin the neighboring cities of Redondo, Hermosa, and Manhattan.  Torrance Beach sits below the bluff of the Hollywood Riviera and those willing to walk just a bit get a great and somewhat private beach with views of Palos Verdes to the south and the more widely known Beach Cities to the north.  Torrance Beach basically starts where the Esplanade of Redondo turns into Calle Miramar at the start of the Hollywood Riviera.
