Met Womencantsail here for a few tasters and a few bottles of our own. Short walk from the town center, and the water, and the hotels. Staff was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly btap list was decent. Food was excellent.
This is the kind of place that hosts a massive bottle share in cooperation with Ratebeer, puts on tap an IPA challenge, and serves various Speedway Stout casks, for your enjoyment. There’s also very serious talent in the brewhouse. If only this place existed in Boulder and not Long Beach.
Great BBQ, great service, great beer (both guest and house), awesome place. Lots of beers to choose from covering lots of styles. Will continue to come in when I can. My only complaint is that its so far from where I live.
Go for the food and stay for the beer. The food is great if you’ll are a BBQ nut. It’s in a trendy pocket and looks like an old converted garage. Nice outdoor space, good service and tons of taps. Their local stuff is good, not great but good. A destination, maybe not, but if you are in the area you will not be disappointed.
Can’t count the number of times I’ve been here. Food and beers are always great, staff is great as well. In addition to a good selection of house beers, there’s always a solid guest tap lineup. The food is really good. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad meal here. Only potential knock is that it’s a bit on the pricey side. You can’t really go wrong.
Visited for a late lunch on Thursday 17th April 2014, around 2pm.
Located in the city centre, we found an underground parking lot within easy reach.
11 house beers and 15 guest taps available on our visit. The house beers could be accquired in reasonably priced 4 x 4oz samplers @$8, no samplers on the guest taps.
House beers spanned a good range including a Berliner, DIPA, and all the usual suspects. Guest list was solid enough but nothing that tempted me to stray from the house beers.
The place was fairly busy on our arrival but the lunchtime crowd soon thinned down but there were always a good dozen or more folks in situ.
We missed the daytime deals, lunchtime specials with a beer were 11.30 to 1.30 and happy hour was from 3 till 6!
The food here was excellent, absolutely first rate, the best I have had in a brew pub, my wife is happy for me to drag her back here and tick in front of her just to taste their food again! Suzanne had the pulled pork sandwich and I had a tasty burger - we shared the most amazing fries ever - steak fries smothered with cheese and steak jus, decadent stuff!
Service was prompt and friendly.
Lok forward to visiting again on our next trip to CA.
A nice pub and brewery with a diverse selection of house beers and guest taps. I ate before I arrived, but wish I had not as the food looked superb. The bartender was a nice conversationalist, and kept me full of beer, including sharing some rare The Bruery beers.
Stopped in for a late lunch with the family. Typical brewpub atmosphere, but good service and an excellent taplist of both their own beers and an impressive list of "guest" beers as well. Flights of their beers were only $6 for four about 6 oz pours, which seemed like a pretty darn good deal. The bottle list is equally impressive, with things like SNR10 for $42. Unfortunately it is all consume on premises. A couple bottles to go of their own beer are typically available. Food was pretty good as well. All in all a place I wish I had a lot closer to home.
(Visited 11/2014): Beachwood’s Long Beach location is on East 3rd off Long Beach Blvd. Street parking is available in the surrounding blocks.
Outside is a patio surrounded by foliage. Inside, the brewpub opens to a seating area on the left and the wooden bar on the right. Hanging globe lights above the bar, and green-tinted placards with the available beers along with a single TV.
Beachwood has over 30 beers on tap, including around 10 of their own. On my visit this included El Verano Saison, Glenlongbeach Scottish, Alpha Galactic APA, Citraholic, Denver Jackhammer and Oatmonster. Sampler flights are available, and the beers I tried were all solid. Guest taps from the likes of Russian River, Bruery and Bear Republic among others. Several dozen bottles from breweries like Firestone Walker, Logsdon, Lost Abbey and FiftyFifty long with lots of imports. A couple Beachwood bottled beers like Citraholic and Sadie available as well.
Service on a Sunday evening at the bar was good. The bartenders were knowledgeable about the beers and attentive throughout the visit.
We did not have any food on the visit.
Overall this is a great brewpub situated on the boardwalk in Long Beach.
