Tasting rooms keep popping all over Southern California, bringing great gathering places to quench your thirst and get social. Surf City USA has become a popular destination to explore the booming craft beverage scene, while keeping it true to the city’s surf culture and laidback vibe. From locals’ favorite stops for a pint after work, to handcrafted cocktails that draw a big crowd, here are the most sought out sips around town.
Riip Beer Co
Launching a brewery is no easy task so Riip started hand delivering growlers & bottles of its beer in an Iconic 1931 Helms Bakery Coach. They’ve grown to become one of the most-respected brewers in the area by handcrafting top quality beer from “Grain to Glass” in HB. Their renovated tasting room is already a hit with locals and out-of-towners, and it’s right on PCH.

Beachwood is a real neighborhood gem. They currently offer 16 taps, which you can savor at their family-friendly tasting room or take home in cans, crowlers or growlers. The Amalgamator, a dynamic West Coast-style IPA that’s delightfully light in body and bursting with unique aromas and flavors, is a crowd pleaser that will keep you coming back for more. But just like the best things in life, every time they sell out on one of the rotating taps, it is gone for good.
