After arriving in the Torrance brewing scene early 2013, The Dudes’ Brewing Co. is opening their South Bay tasting room with a weekend long celebration starting this Friday 9/12 at 3PM until 10PM Sunday (hours Sat/Sun 12PM-10PM). Thirteen tap handles fueled by a 3.5 barrel pilot system will pour beer for growler fills, pint and half pint specials including $3 pints of South Bay Session IPA.

The tasting room is located inside the brewery at 1840 W. 208th Street in Torrance, just west of Western Ave. The tasting room is family friendly and there will be giveaways all weekend along with a new IPA being released for the occasion.

No, Italian craft beer is not a typo — or a punchline. As understandably and justifiably obsessed as we all are with the ongoing L.A. craft beer revolution, there are similar beer renaissances going on around the globe. And Italy, world-renowned for its wine, is one such place.

If you haven’t yet tasted these delicious brews, or even heard of them, join me and Beer Belly’s Jimmy Han this Sunday, July 28, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. on the brand-new back patio of Beer Belly at 525 S. Western Ave. in L.A.’s Koreatown, for “Viva la Birra Italiana,” a crash course in Italian craft beer.

Enjoy flights of innovative beers from the country’s ever-growing birra artigianale scene, which grew out of Italy’s Slow Food movement. Featured will be both bottled and kegged brews from such birrificios as Amiata, Baladin, del Borgo, Brûton, Grado Plato, Italiano, Montegioco and Troll.
