El Segundo Brewing Company began when founder Rob Croxall had had enough of his corporate job in aerospace finance and decided to dive headfirst into the world of craft beer. As Rob says, “My worst day here still beats my best day there.” We’re glad he made the move! ESBC focuses on hoppy beers; their brews “have firm bitterness, but tend to be more restrained than other West Coast IPAs.” They recently came out with Hammerland, which won Gold at the 2015 Hayward Bistro Double IPA Festival. Other beers available for tasting in their taproom include the Blue House Pale Ale, Blue House Citra Pale, White Dog IPA, and Hyperion’s Stout, just to name a few. The Blue House logo on their bottles represents small-town America and the ideals of hard work and perseverance. ESBC focuses on quality (even if it means more time and money), putting family first, and having fun. If you’re not having a good time, what’s the point?
Have a good time at this year’s Taste of Brews event in Long Beach! El Segundo Brewing Company will be showcasing their fantastic beers, along with dozens of other breweries. To get tickets, visit http://www.tasteofbrews.com/LBTOB.html.
