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.

A very hole in the wallish type of atmosphere, very intimate and small. Great service, well thought out medium sized selection. Great experimental/southern hybrid cuisine. I love it. Itís fairly priced, but not a habit I could sustain if I lived closer. Much different from the LB location.

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.

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.

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.

One of my favorite beer restaurants. Great food, the smoked nuts are rad, and the beer list is out of this world on most any given day. BBQ is pretty nice as well but I definitely come here for the food.A little hard to find parking depending on when you go.

Visited today for the first time for Sour Fest 2011. As a lover of sours I was extremely eager to visit and try as many sours as possible. Place was providing 5.5 oz drafts from 4 to 8 bucks. My girlfriend and I ended up ordering 18 sours over the course of two hours, and I have to say that whenever I wanted a new round the bartender was right there to get us what we needed. Parking close to the place is limited to two hours, so park down the road on 6th or 7th street where on the north side of the road you can park for as long as you want. Brisket Sandwich was also good. On par with any BBQ in Los Angeles.

Stopped in here after the bruery party for a tasting. What an awesome little place. First off, this place is small, and our group was quite large. We squeezed our way in and grabbed the last few seats at the table. The place was packed with tons of local BAís there for the tasting and others just looking to eat and drink at this awesome spot. The quality was absolutely top notch. From the amazing food to the excellent beer selection. All the beers were served in the correct glassware and nothing in the place felt cheep. The service could not have been better. Like I said our group was quite large and they didnít mind at all. Our server Jackie was great and she really knew her stuff. The owner, Gabe, came around quite a bit and was a really cool guy. He even opened a few bottles for all of us to try. The only thing better than the service was the food, which was just awesome. I got the triple meet sampler made up of ribs, smoked chicken, and brisket with sweet potato fries and blue cheese grits. I could only eat half of it because there was just so much food. I ate the rest the next day and it was just as good as the night before. I just wish I could have tried even more because I spied quite a few things on the menu I would have liked to try. Prices were very good. My huge meal was only $20 and the beers were just as reasonable. Now, on to the beer. So many tasty offerings, so little time. I really wanted to try the Midnight Sun panty peeler but it kicked right when we walked in the door, oh well, I had to settle for the Stone double dry hopped sublimely self-righteous...yeah poor me. After that I was going to go with the cask ruination with simcoe but they put a keg of Moylanís apple brandy barrel aged double kilt lifter on, yeah I know so many words, and I just had to get it. One of the best tap lists I have seen in some time. Overall one of my favorite stops on my trip to cali. I canít wait to see how the new brewpub location turns out. If it is anything like this place I am sure it will be one of the best.
