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 Iíve seen in the states. best of all, they serve the kegs at cellar temperature rather than freezing cold like most places around.

I guess itís 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 Iíve never looked, I just drink the draft beer.

My only knock on this place is that itís too small. However, the food, beer, and service are all top notch.
Prices for the food are a bit on the high side, but the food is quite good, so Iíll let it slide.
Gabe and Co. are amazingly friendly and accommodating and really take good care of their customers.
Itís too bad that the trip is so long, because I would love to come here more often.

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 donít 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 donít 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.

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.

Pretty awesome little place. Tap list is unbelievable. Lots of rare brews. Had the burger which was extremely solid. Cool bartenders and locals were cool as shit as well. Must stop, just wish it wasnít so far from my hotel.
Made a 2nd trip and this place is just awesome. Nonstop rare beers on tap

Love this place...when itís not packed...which isnít often. Always stop by when Iím in the area. Great service, stellar taps, and delicious food. Glad theyíre expanding so everyone can at least get in the door and have a seat to enjoy what this lace has to offer.

This place quickly jumped into my Top 10 favorite restaurants all time. I love the menus. The food menu is concise and focuses on excellent examples of barbeque-style foods and other similar fare. I had a really, really hard time choosing from the menu, because everything looked incredible. All the food was outstanding! Iím still buzzing off of it. The country pate and fried pickles were fantastic appetiziers. The salmon and chicken paired beautifully with the grits and the coleslaw. Just incredible. I loved the sauces too. Everything had a wonderful unique touch and was obviously well thought out. The items and menu just seem specially crafted, which all had a great from-scratch sense. The tap menu and bottle menus were fantastic and I wanted to ordered everything. Even better, the prices were incredibly fair. The decor and atmosphere were warm and homey and I wanted to settle in for a fortnight. This place is a MUST visit. I love it.

I dig this place. One half is small beach bar, one half is 50s diner. BBQ is not the best Iíve had but absolutely is serious. Beers range from weird taps to bottles that even distinguished beer bars just donít carry, let alone put on the menu. Snap.

Wow, another place that Iím a few months behind on reviewing, and an excellent spot at that. Beachwood straight up rocks. great people, great food, and a truly stellar beer selection that is the best that I saw in the area when I was down there. These guys have a deep cellar. Talk to the bartenders, geek out on beer, and you might be surprised with something awesome that isnít on the menu. The restaurant isnít very large and gets quite crowded, but the bar isnít a bad place to sit at all. They get super bonus points for having a web cam of their current tap board up on their website; why canít every pub get this going? If you are anywhere near here, go here. No excuses. I donít even eat meat and Iíll be back as soon as possible. Their fried tomatoes and pickles kick ass.
