Dex, A Brewery, and the City of Torrance…










DEX is beyond excited to be working with Steve Robert’s of Charlie’s to design Hopsaint, a local brewery and restaurant opening in the City of Torrance.  Expect a casual, spirited environment where you can sit at the bar and watch the game, take a tour of the brewing facility, or fill up a communal table with a group of friends for dinner and drinks.  The design will showcase bright pops of color, natural woods, and a playful mixture of lighting fixtures.
