Nice bar, almost neighbors with Beachwood in Long Beach. 27 beers on tap and the selection was amazing. Ale smith, Almanac, Avery and Ommegang Watson the tap list. Kinda cosy atmosphere, not very crowded on a late Sunday afternoon. Really cheap tasters. Gonna go back before I leave this area.

Decent selection, and a different one than Beachwood BBQ. For the harder rock fans, more so than the craft beer fans.

Next door to Beachwood BBQ Long Beach so a no brainer to stop by and see what is on tap. Much less impressive tap list than Beachwood and house beers are lacking rather than world class. About 1/3 on tap were Belgians and 2/3 local CA with some other US craft mixed in. Some harder to find stuff from Drakes, Angel City, Eagle Rock. Didnít see anything from Bruery, Noble, Ladyface, Lost Abbey/Port. Decor is identical to Azusa though this gets much more crowded and the interior space is smaller. Didnít try the food but it looked like cut and paste menu from the Azusa location. Solid secondary stop from Beachwood.

Just a quick stop on the way from Beachwood BBQ back to my hotel. Decent enough list. Worth a look.

Visited a number of times since Beachwood Brewing opened next door.

This is considerably smaller than the newest location in Azusa which is the location that I visit most often. The theme is the same, the food is the same, and the beer selection is slightly better here. Very dark inside, kind of loud, pretty good beer selection, good food, the girls all wear the Catholic school uniforms accompanied by the short skirts, and they have these neat cooling coasters built into the bar. Those coasters are pretty neat but I donít think they do much when you set a stemmed glass on there. Prices are a bit high on food and beer and parking can get expensive too but the lot next door does 2 hours for free. This is a must visit at least once, and you can hit this, Beachwood, and Rock Bottom all on the same visit.

An interesting bar next door (roughly) to Beachwood BBQ and Brewing. The waitresses are donning Catholic schoolgirl skirts, and the waiters had some clothes on that I did not pay attention to or care about. The beers, as everyone else says, are Belgian focused. Actually, this is a rather boring place given its proximity to Beachwood BBQ.

Finally made it here after going to Beachwood the other night. Mostly Belgian style beers on tap, but a nice selection of local/California stuff as well. Service is quite good, and the atmosphere is very inviting. Nice place, but I donít know if I really need to go back considering Beachwood is pretty much next door.

a fun little Belgian-themed beer bar with a weekend jagerbomb vibe. about a dozen taps, half of them Belgian, though the most exotic thing I found was the Dupont Biere de Miel. small selection of local LA taps including the Eagle Rock Solidarity mild ale on my visit. two doors down from Beachwood so easy to hit during a visit there.

Great place to stop in for a beer in Long Beach. The selection is well above average and served in proper glass ware. Had a Racer 5 on cask which was excellent to try. Ambiance is nice and the outside seating on a warm Saturday is perfect. Outside seating is dog friendly. Food was above average pub fare. Not sure if I like the ordering format of walking up to the case register and waiting in line. Servers we knowledgeable, but I always seem to get stuck behind some guy trying to impress the servers with his knowledge. Hey Buddy, Iím dry and I donít want to hear about your first Guinness.

Had dinner on a Monday night. Seating is first come, and service at the tables is a bit sparse at times. The beer selection, bottle and taps, is pretty good. Bottles are way overpriced, the taps are all $6-9, but a very eclectic selection. Food is limited to small plates, sandwiches, and flatbreads, but tasty. Nice hangout and decor. Waitress in a Catholic schoolgirl outfit is a bit kitchy, but overall a cool place.
