Stopped by on a recent trip to Long Beach based on the glowing rec's here on BA - have to say, this is one of my favorite places in the world to drink and eat.

The place is tiny, but I arrived on the early side (during Happy Hour - $1 off beers and special food menu) and was able to grab a seat at the bar. Dig the vibe of the place.

Tight, well-though out selection of local, national and int'l beers. Had my 1st 2 glasses of Pliny the Elder and was not disappointed. At the suggestion of a local tried an Inland Empire Porter which was quite tasty too.

Authentic BBQ is served here. I can be a bit of a priss about my 'cue, and this place was spot on. My pulled pork sammich with coleslaw on pretzel bread was delicious.

First server in the evening was extremely prompt and friendly - second not so much.

I am jealous. I want to move to the area so I can frequent this place. A must-stop for BA's in the area.

Beachwood is my local(ish) watering hole and I am lucky to be within 5 miles of it, as it's likely my favorite beer bar in the US. The quality of the beers on draft is unparalleled. Add to that limited taps (more new beer all the time), awesome events (Sour Fest, anyone?), and extremely knowledgeable bartenders (Vito is the man!), and you have the best place to grab a beer in Southern California. The bar seats about 12-13 so it can be a bit hard to get a seat when they're busy, but the bartenders are always happy to serve the standing crowd (plus, there's a thin bar so you can set your drink down if you do happen to be standing). Most of the food is pretty damn good too.
