1st Visit – Ten Mile Brewing

Being on the Westside for a bit, I decided, on the spur of the moment, to check out the new brewery in Signal Hill amongst the oil pumps off the 405, Ten Mile Brewing.

I was pleasantly surprised from start to finish. Tucked into the corner of an unassuming building, the brewery has been well outfitted with wood and metal. Especially impressive is the menu board. Really well done.

Extended descriptions of the beers are on sheet handed over with your taster tray and are helpful for both those new to beer and those who have visited many a brewery. I tried all but the milk stout, and found all to be clean and well done. The Kentucky Common even grew on me after my initial thought was that it was too watery and light.

There is a NE IPA coming as well as Direct TV for those that want to watch the new NFL team in town. I would suggest the Pale Ale Citrallenial and the well named Segway to Munich Helles Lager.

Plus, if you choose your seat carefully, you get a view of the really old city cemetery across the road. Not your usual brewery scenery.
