fantastic taplist of local and regional and international beer. delicious and well-made food (grits with mushrooms, do it) with passionate and knowledgeable staff and one of the most extensive bottle lists I’ve seen in the states. best of all, they serve the kegs at cellar temperature rather than freezing cold like most places around.

I guess it’s high time to update my review of this place. First went in 2008 after having walked by a few times without realizing it. The food is amazing and the service is always good. The first time I went in I was very surprised at how they "only" had 15-20 taps but they were all interesting and in most cases good. Had some obscure Speakeasy beer and something called Cuvee de Raisin (I eventually figured out who made that one). Sadly I dont get back enough but will try to periodically.

Complaints include that its small so seating is an issue, parking sucks, and the prices are high (but the food and beer are worth it).

Also, I hear they have a good bottle list but in my dozen or so trips I’ve never looked, I just drink the draft beer.

This place has become my local bar, essentially. It’s the closest place with good beer to the house. So whenever I come home from work and get off the freeway, I have to decide: left for Beachwood or right for home.

I think at this point everyone knows the restaurant is small. It gets busy on special events and pretty much any weekend. But they do a really good job with service here. Though maybe I’m biased...

The draft list is just about always solid and interesting. Part of the reason I like it so much is that there’s usually a good balance of new stuff, stuff you know is good, and stuff you’ve never even heard of before. Only real knock is that beers can be a little expensive, particularly for special stuff (and "festivals"/special events). It’s not exorbitant, but you’re not going to get any $3 beers here.

The food is solid. As the name implies, BBQ is the primary style here. But, they’ve got something for everyone and frequently do special food events, pairings, etc. Mac & Cheese night is a tough night to try to get a seat.

Anyway, one of the best beer bars/restaurants in the area and probably the state. I guess that’s enough of me being a Beachwood BBQ commercial for now.

Very small, cozy location one block from Seal Beach pier. Great atmosphere, chill, amazingly knowledgeable staff. All cute women with great training on craft beer- great recommendations. Tap list is large, about 23 beers on tap and a good bottle list to boot. Keg rotation is ferocious so check their LIVE TAP LIST CAM ONLINE! . They don’t do flights, which sucks, but will do very small free tasters, 1-2 oz pours, to see if you like a beer. When I was there they had three house beers on tap brewed at the Long Beach location, four Hangar 24 one-offs, 3 Fonteinen Beersel Lager (hard to find), Victory Prima Pils, Boon Framboise, Green Flash Double Stout, others. Very impressive. We all had lunch. Decent brisket sandwich for $5, good collard greens, very good bleu cheese grits. Great BBQ pork nachos and sweet potato fries. Come hungry. And don’t come expecting to get 10 4oz pours of whatever is on tap. Prices were good ranging from $5-$7.50 for pints. Lunch menu was a deal with all $5 BBQ sandwiches. Staff was pleasant and patient. Also gave us a little tour of their sick tap system.

Anytime you can combine a great craftbeer bar with great BBQ...you have a winning combination. Add to that a cool town (Seal Beach) and some great staff...and this becomes a must visit great craftbeer and food destination. I can’t say enough about the quality of their BBQ. And the tap selection is large and varied. All in all I had a great time here recently and look forward to visiting their brewery in Long Beach on my next trip to LA.

Re-visited on 29th May 2015 and it was a whole lot better: beer quality was fine, children all gone and the place had a good vibe: my score has been raised: but please read my original review as well. Wandered in mid day on 15th July 2014. Interesting selection of twenty taps, only two of which were their own. The beers are listed by name and cost on boards behind the bar, which is where I sat. No mention on ABV or serving size, seems to me strange. Anyway the bar area is squeezed into a corridor with the kitchen at the rear, the main seating area sounded like a kindergarten and I did not look in. One of the staff tried to nullify the noise by putting on some music but this just intensified the sound from the children. My BBQ Chicken on Nachos were good as we’re two of my four beers. I thought the bar area sterile and uninteresting, staff and customers all fine at the bar, but those mums with kids were not needed. This is not a World Class destination by any means, mediocre at best, can not believe some of the scores on here for this place.

We came here on 20.2.2016. We very much liked the Long Beach location from our previous visits and finally made it to Seal Beach. This location is much smaller than the Long Beach one. Very well decorated interior and nice bar. On a Saturday around noon, the place was crowded. 35 beers on tap whereof 6 were from their own brewery. Really good mixed selection of Lagers, Weissbeers, Stouts and Pale Ales. Liked the Rose Royce a lot. We had a Uerige Alt, which was not so good, maybe caused by some transportation problems. Also had some tapping issues with the Berliner Weisse from Telegraph Brewing. Was surprised as Beachwood is well known for their high quality beers. Food was absolutely excellent, although they were running out of the Chili. Service was very professional and friendly.

I went there for the first time today and I love this place. Quite on the weekdays for lunch. Sat at the bar were the 5 other people were all talking beer. I started of with Black Butte XX on tap. I then had a pulled pork sandwich which was pretty decent (bbq is a bit out of its enviornment in SoCal). Great 22 beers on tap + 1 cask (Oak aged Arrogant Bastard). Some tap notables were Bruery Humulus Brune, Stone 12, Curator, Black Butte XX, and Boon Marriage Parfait. Bottle list was amazing, HotD Fred from the wood (which I had), plus two bottles that I will keep hidden (hint: one is a 375mL from Lost Abbey, and the other is a very special bottle from Firestone). Will return.

Un petit taproom fusionné avec un salle à manger. La sélection était composé de 4-5 bières maisons et une dizaine de futs invités, tous de qualité. Pour la cuisine j’ai été quand même déçu, le brisket était hyper maigre et les accompagnements plutôt triste. Je vais assurément y retourner pour avoir une autre expérience mais j’ai surtout hâte d’aller voir celui de Long Beach.

Love this place...when it’s not packed...which isn’t often. Always stop by when I’m in the area. Great service, stellar taps, and delicious food. Glad they’re expanding so everyone can at least get in the door and have a seat to enjoy what this lace has to offer.
