Since moving back to California a few months back, I have been here about a half dozen times. Beachwood is easily one of the best gastropubs in OC. The bbq is very good, and the appetizers are the perfect accompaniment to great beers.
The beer list here is simply phenomenal. Always changing it up with unique and rare brews. I remember coming here over thee holidays to specifically grab a glass of Cuvee Du Noel, which was very stellar. Generally, the main problems with coming here are (1) deciding which beer to order and (2) not having too many for the drive home.
The service staff is generally pretty knowledgeable. A few are not necessarily folks whose opinions I would rely on for beer tips. All-in-all, however, everyone who works here is very friendly.
If you are in the Long Beach area or north OC, this spot is a must for awesome beer selection and real decent grub.

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.
