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.

Amazing beer on tap, great food, great knowledgeable staff and its a five minute walk to the beach. The only negative thing to say is that it is relatively small.

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.

Really enjoyed this place! Open, taps were diverse and some unique brews I hadn’t seen previously, and the food was truly incredible. World-class BBQ. Service was attentive but not terribly knowledgeable about what they had. Can’t beat the BBQ and brew combination...will definitely return!

I saw why this place is world class. The taps speak for themselves and of course, awsome BBQ. The service was excellent, my server was able to do so much and keep track of everything. I will be coming back I just which it wasnt a 30-40 minute drive from my house.

18 Aug 2013. Awesome! 23 taps. Three beers were their own. The rest were guest taps from all over. I haven't even seen half of them. Food is med priced but awesome. Bartender was very friendly. It is small and busy on a Sunday. Apparently it gets lots busier though.

A small and narrow space on the way out to the Seal Beach pier. Always an excellent draft selection and the food can hang with pretty much any BBQ in the state. The size is the only downside, it can really take some maneuvering to get a place to sit at the bar unless it is the middle of the week. They also have some awesome special events and tap takeovers periodically.

I go here to try their brews and only have one(IPA) on tap Tuesday. Didn’t stay after the IPA, but shared a brew a guy bought. Asked about their beers, Long Beach is the place to go he said. Sad

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.
