Smog City Brewing Co. was established back in 2011 and moved into their own brewery and Taproom facility in Torrance in 2013. It’s a proudly family-run craft brewery focused entirely on creating and distributing exceptional beers.
Jonathan Porter is the Head Brewmaster and Co-owner of Smog City Brewing Co. He’s an award-winning brewer with three Great American Beer Festival medals, most recently a Gold on 2012 for his Groundworks Coffee Porter. He has worked with area chefs to pair craft beers with well-crafted meals. Porter strives to produce well balanced, pleasing, unique and challenging beers.
Our guest, Co-owner Laurie Porter, fosters community relationships and builds Smog City’s presence. She oversees sales, marketing and distribution. “If Smog City is pouring, she’s probably not far away.”
