Located just off Torrance Blvd. in the Redondo Beach Pier Area, Naja's is a little hard to find at first, but then you look at the beer list and know you've arrived. They had 77 beers on tap, many I've had before, but only 10 or so are macros. They also have a huge bottle selection, unfortunately, you have to drink it there, you can't take it home with you, but that's a minor quibble. I spotted a vintage bottle of Stone RIS, that's at least as old as 2005. I had a Val-Dieu Brown on-tap, an '05 Sierra Nevada Celebration in bottle, and a Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle on cask, all 3 delicious. Service was prompt and competent, very good, and attentive. A great beer bar if you are in the area, if I lived in Redondo, I would definitely make this my local. A great place to have a beer and watch the waves crash on the shore.
Edit 11/22/08 - Have got to dock the vibe a little bit. Went here today, it was quite crowded, which I don't particulary like, but can't dock them for being popular. But, the fact that it's open to the outside means the smoke from the dicks that light up up right by the entrance is going to come in. This is CA, we're not supposed to have to deal with smoke in a bar. Went to the north side of the bar and that helped remedy it, but I was not happy for the first half of the visit. Still great selection. On days when it's hardly crowded like Sunday, it's been fine.

Went there during their annual IPA Festival--over 70 IPAs on tap and 2-3 rotating on cask. Amazing selection, esp. of SoCal IPAs.
The place is right on the boardwalk. It has kind of a dive bar feel, but I kinda dig that. Then again, it's right next to the beach which helps, too. The place can be loud with music playing from a jukebox or sometimes a live band playing. There is a quieter side bar where the regulars hang out.
Had the kebab while I was there. Maybe I was a little tipsy, but it was awesome (great bar food, IMO!).
Great place--can't wait to go back!

Western Montana and South Bay meet. Very fun atmosphere. IPA festival is super. Good selection of ipas. Southern California is well represented. Cool music and good place to get away. I would bring myself here again and/ or family. Relaxing and low pressure.

Right on the water and classic rock cover bands rock out when it's sunny on the weekends - so pretty much every weekend.
Great draft selection that is ever-changing. The owners are passionate about what beer they are able to get their hands on. Ask them about something they don't have access to and you can tell they're pissed about it. Don't mention Alpine Beer Co.
They've got pretty solid bar food that showcases a variety of fine, fried items. The real winner is the pita plate. Chicken with muschrooms, onions, jalapenos, lettuce, pitas, and hummus. Unreal and pairs really well with an IPA.

This place definitely falls under dives in a great way. This is not your trendy craft bar with stuck up self proclaimed "beer connoisseurs" talking out of their ass about terroir. Its directly next to the docks which adds a nice atmosphere. Has a kinda scummy sea-ness to it. Although i'm not sure how to describe that better, I mean it in a good way haha.
They have an amazing amount of beers on rotating tap. I've never seen less than 50 different ones available (they also have bottles of course). The aspect I like is that they have more than the regular found everywhere craft beers. Recently I was there and they had a 2009 double dead guy on tap woop woop! You will hear of events being hosted here as well. None are expensive and all are well worth it. Keep an eye out for their announcements when we get to LA beer week. Service wise it is beautiful, never have to wait more than a minute. Its very impressive. As well as being staffed by what seems like only beer geeks. That makes it a great place for you rookies out there. Don't be shy to ask and learn!
As far as their food I never tried it. Always seem to have just eaten before i go there. It seems like your regular bar food. No frills, nothing fancy, just some hearty looking bar food. Great spot
