Craft Beer Los Angeles

Anniversaries warrant celebration in any business, but in the craft brewing world, Batch 100 is another noteworthy milestone. At this point, the brewery should have a good handle on their equipment and clear sense of their identity. For King Harbor Brewing Company, the Redondo Beach business from Tom Dunbabin, Phil McDaniel, and Will Daines that added a waterfront tasting room last year, Batch 100 resulted in a cloudy wheat ale that clocked 6.1% ABV and contained mango, ancho chile, and salt, but still felt refreshing.

The owners explained the vision for Batch 100 on their website, saying, “You know that delicious fruit salad you get from old school LA food trucks (not the new hipster kind)? That was our inspiration for this beer. Perfect for this hot weather!”

I visited Tuning Fork gastropub in Studio City during their weekday “Beat the Clock” happy hour, where beers are $3 off from 3-4pm, $2 off from 4-5pm, and $1 off from 5-6pm. My pint of Batch 100 cost just $2, which would have been a remarkable bargain even at full-price.
