I couldn't design a large beer bar better than this. Its right next to the long beach harbor and has a wooden deck with heat lamps. The inside is quite modern, with dozens of high-res plasma screen tv's showing various sports being played. Their happy hour is fantastic, half price appetizers and 3.50 pints from 3-6 on weekdays. The nachos are huge, enough for 3 people.
They claim to have 250 beers on tap. I counted 189, yes i did actually count. There's about 40 or so brews that I think are great to find on tap. Maredsous, North coast imperial stout, Bornem Double, Delirium Tremens, Belhaven scottish ale. Many of the local breweries are well-represented such as: Stone, Abita, Pyramid, Rogue. I especially like the selection of Hefeweizens. They had Franziskaner, Paulaner, Hacker-Pschorr, Erdinger, Bayhawk, Grant, Primo Blue Hawaiian, Widmer, and of course Pyramid. The place doesn't get too packed and they have ample space to account for any overflow.

My large work group arrived right before sunset. The views here are amazing. The sun was setting and reflecting off of the harbor right out front of our window seats. Since we were such a large group they gave us the entire harbor room. Food was good, but not great. Service was actually pretty good for the size of our table, but a bit slow. The beer list is lengthy and extensive, but there isn't anything rare or special. I tried some of the house beers that are brewed by Firestone Walker. They also were adequate, but nothing special. Go for the atmosphere and views.

The location of this place is unbeatable - looking right over the harbor to the lighthouse and to downtown Long Beach. A great place to have a brew or 3 and watch the sunset. I did just that, having their House Amber Tripel, Golden Monkey, and a Shipyard XXXX. A lot of their offerings I had seen before but there were some pleasant surprises on the menu. I'm not sure how often they rotate. The place seems popular with the craft beer crowd and non-beer drinkers alike, as there were a lot of people having wine or mixed drinks out there. The server was knowledgeable and offered me some notes on a few beers. The food was pretty good, but admittedly I didn't have all that much - onion rings and the clam chowder, but from what I saw from other people's plates, I might come back here to eat sometime. Overall a place that I'd revisit if I was in town again. Not really a destination, but a solid place overall. My only complaint - they don't put any head on the pours. Not that big a deal, but would have been nice.

Atmosphere: Sat on the deck, nice view of the marina.
Food: Had the Sea Scallops. Good but not great. Rice medley that it came with was good.
Price: I didn't pay.
Beer: Lots of beer to choose from of course. Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable.
Two sampler sets of six to choose from. We ended up getting both and then some. I came away with several new favorites to look for again.
-Moylan's Kilt Lifter Scotch Ale
-Ommegang (Abbey Ale)
-Avery The Reveand
-Tetleys Pub Creram Ale
-Young's Double Chocolate Stout
-Primo Island Lager (See this is rated low on BA so I will have to try again but it was fine on tap)

A: way, way too noisy. Granted, I'm pretty sensitive to noise as a general rule, but this was beyond excessive. My friends and I had to literally yell to hear each other at our own table, at this was at 7pm, not during crazy bar only hours.

Q: Good.

S: Friendly, helpful.

S: Had tremendous selection! 150+ beers on tap. I ordered the Dogfish Head 90 min IPA, which was pretty dang good. Bummed to not see Russian River represented there, but the waitress took interest in my inquiry and I was assured that they are always looking for more quality beers to put on tap!

F: Very tasty. I split the Orange Peel Chicken with my fiance, which wasn't my first choice, but I still enjoyed it.

V: Appetizer, Split meal, tiny dessert, and two beers ran us about $60. To me, this is a bit pricey.
