The zone where Orange and LA County meet each other and the Pacific Ocean is a great place to live. You have every conceivable lifestyle available to you. From the anti-culture of HB to the apparent cultural renaissance that Long Beach has been under going; you can hang out watching national surfing competitions in HB in he morning and spend your evening doing an artwalk of LB's art district. All that this area lacked was one serious non-brewpub beer destination.

Not that there is anything wrong with HBBC, BBC or Rockbottom (OK, each may have several things wrong, but those are different reviews), but there has not been a proper bar for foreign and US craft beers in this area until Beachwood arrived. Gabe (the owner) has a laid back style that helps make this place a comfortable stop to sit back and try a couple of new beers each week. Kyle mans the taps most nights that I have been there and he can inform you about any beer on tap. But everybody there is helpful and if they don't know about the beer, then they will find out.

Within an incredibly short period of time, Beachwood is becoming a "scene" and a "must stop" for many people; from industry types to aficionados to locals waiting for tables for BBQ. For those already in the know, it is name dropped right alongside any of the top beer stops in the state of California. If there is any drawback to such comparisons, Beachwood can come off as a little pricey. Carlsbad Pizza Port, Toronado, etc. are less of a strain on the wallet, but with as rare as a bar on this level is in this area, the additional cost of an evening is far better than the distance of other similar beer destinations.

Great food, great tap list, and you can almost find RR on tap. Can get a little cramped at times though.
