Rock & Brews, the concert-themed beer pub owned by Manhattan Beach patron Michael Zislis, music promoter Dave Furano, and Kiss bassist Gene Simmons, announces its coming expansion to Torrance. Construction will begin immediately following approvals on an over one-million dollar indoor/outdoor space on PCH, with an opening party expected in the spring of 2013 that will also serve as a fundraiser for the Torrance Education Foundation. In addition to future locations in Cabo and Maui, the principals are considering a revival of the South Bay’s city’s Fourth of July celebration, which was axed over budget issues last year. 1601 S. Pacific Coast Hwy.
