I visited this place on a Saturday night. It's located on the main strip in Seal Beach. It's a very small room split down the middle by a dividing wall with the bar on one side and the dining room on the other. The bar was packed but it was still fairly easy to get a beer. The bartenders were very friendly and helpful and I think that one was the owner. We waited about 30 minutes to get a table for 4 which wasn't too bad.

The beer list is great. They had 21 beers on-tap, all top-notch stuff. American micros, Belgians beers, German beers, and even a couple of British brews. It's a very well thought out list. The hop cam on their website is awesome. You can see what they have, and it constantly updates. Prices were reasonable.

The food was very good. It's a large menu with lots of options. Everyone was happy with their food. Not the best BBQ in the world but still very good. Very good service for the food as well.

All in all, I'd highly recommend this place. Easily the best beer destination in Orange County. (1,024 characters)

This is your spot if you love IPAs and like some good food to go with them. Much smaller than the Long Beach location with a more concise tap list. Bottle selection however is more extensive than at Long Beach. (212 characters)

Love Beachwood BBQ! The Seal Beach location is small, at times can be crowded – but always has a very mellow vibe. The beer selection is outstanding. While the Seal Beach location doesn’t carry as many in-house offerings at the Long Beach location – it has a greater selection of guest taps. Moreover, Beachwood offers a hop cam, so people can stay up to date on the latest offerings. (394 characters)

Stopped by during Beer Safari in Long Beach/Orange area. Loved Seal Beach and community. Crowded of course but still laid back and a bit of a reminder of early 70's So Cal @ beaches.
BBBQ was small but great. Right on the street of town walk way,
Interesting that it had more taps than LB location, but less of their own beers. Like LB more for BBBQ beer choices (which were excellent); like SB for vibe.
Good news is that both had fantastic guest beers...including great choices from Alpine. (494 characters)

Started coming here when it first opened. Even then Gabe had a grand vision of what craft beer can be. So stoked for the success of Beachwood Brewing (149 characters)

Awesome menu that you'll find some "interesting" stuff (in a good way, I'm just not into alligator stew). The fries, BBQ chicken salad, hush puppies and ham are amazing. Oh ya, their tap list is always solid and the bottle list is pretty killer. Be prepared to wait if you go on a weekend/evening or if there is a special release. Seal Beach is extremely small but a cool vibe. LB has a rad outdoor patio which is good in the summer. (438 characters)

Outstanding food and guest tap list. I loved this place, I just wish they had more than one of there own beers left the day i arrived. That said the many beers they did offer were carefully chosen and dynamite. I had to visit the longbeach location to enjoy their beer, and that place was also worth the trip. Best Gastropub i've been to, I see why the have been ranked #1 in that category for multiple years! (413 characters)

Great food, great tap list, and you can almost find RR on tap. Can get a little cramped at times though. (105 characters)
