The brewpub is a pretty popular place, with a real rail - as in "railroad" - on the bar! The brewhouse and tanks are right out in the open, but there is some confusion as to whether any brewing actually happens there. Some of the beer served at Brewski's is produced at Bohemian's' microbrewery in Torrance CA.

Directions: Pacific Coast Highway to Pier Avenue in Hermosa Beach. Turn west on Pier (toward the ocean). Brewski's is on the right side of the street, two doors past the Hermosa Avenue intersection.
