Craft Beer & Brewing magazine included King Harbor Choco-Latte, a Mexican-style mole stout, on its Best of 2022 list. The brewery also won a gold ribbon at the 2022 San Diego International Beer Competition for Flightless Pilot, an American-style Indian Pale Ale, and a silver ribbon for Topside Pilsner

Other products include a brown ale called the Swirly and a West Coast Double IPA honoring the late Vin Scully called Win For Vin.

The social media post gave few clues to the closing. “It has been a wild ride, but the time has come to close the doors for good,” it reads.

Tom Dunbabin and Will Daines opened the brewery in 2014. It had three locations: The brewery at 2907 182nd Street; a waterfront tasting room at 132 International Boardwalk; and Riviera Village, located at 1719 South Catalina Ave.

Mumford Brewing in Los Angeles’ Little Toyko district also shut down with an Instagram announcement on New Year’s weekend.

“The last few years have been tough on the business and hard on the industry in general,” it reads.

The brewery was founded in 2015 by brothers Todd and Peter Mumford, who were inspired by their father’s home brewing, according to an interview with Hop Culture, a trade website. They specialized in hazy IPAs.
