It is American Craft Beer Week and I have decided to try and find as many American craft beers as possible in the South Bay. I started my search at Naja’s Place on the International Boardwalk on the Redondo Beach Pier. Tanya has been taken off the Methotrexate that has prevented her from enjoying a nice beer, she is going to be able to join me on this adventure. Since Naja’s Place has 88 beers on tap, it seemed like the best place to start. Unfortunately, Naja’s does not offer flights, but the bartender, Kara, was kind enough to provide short pours so we could try a few different brews. Tanya started off with a Knee Deep Tanilla Porter and I had the Hangar 24 Double IPA. We then moved on to a Black Phoenix for Tanya and a Ballast Point Tongue Buckler.
The food selection at Naja’s is not really our style so we took a stroll down the Boardwalk towards the pier and ended up at El Torito for a little dinner and to take a few photos of the pier and marina. We then went back to Naja’s for a final tasting; this time Tanya had a Firestone Velvet Merlin and I had the Firestone 15th IPA. All of the brews were very nice and I have to thank Kara for her suggestions for Tanya; it was obvious that Tanya really enjoyed the beers she had, especially the Black Phoenix.
