I decided to check this place out since it is virtually next door to Beachwood II. Walking in it's certainly smaller than I thought with a bunch of breweriana on the walls along with the Catholic theme. Quite empty when I went there for Happy Hour or Mass as they call it.
Had a Borgo Enkir which was served properly was in good condition. I had the Duck and Bacon sausage that was enjoyable but nothing to go crazy for.
The selection was good on-tap, a nice mix of styles. Their bottle list is impressive with lots of Belgians, all the Trappists except for Westy of course and even a few true lambics. Prices are good, I even saw Yorkshire Stingo for $10 a bottle which is less than in the store.
Service is fine, they got me my food and beer with no problems, but never really engaged me otherwise, but that was fine on this day.
All and all a good location in Long Beach. Its immediate vicinity to Beachwood II makes me wonder if it'll last, but they seem to be doing well from what I've heard and I wish them the best. I'm all for more better beer locations in the Southland.
