Visited last night to compare/contrast to the original in Seal Beach.

Top notch across the board. Menu was very much like Seal Beach, with some really unique offerings, although I went for the pulled pork sandwich on a pretzel role - delicious, and perfect with many of the beers.

The service was also quite good. My bartender (Dave?) was really knowledgeable about all things beer, and was giving some lessons to a non-beek sitting next to me.

There were 6 house drafts, and about 25 guest beers - mostly unique stuff from around SoCal, but also had Jolly Pumpkin and St. Bernardus Abt 12 on. I had Port's Feeding Frenzy, Telegraph Reserve Wheat, and Lawsons/Bruery Acer Quercus.

I was surprised to hear that they're "not allowed" to sell an empty growler... it's just a glass vessel, so that seemed fishy. Ponied up $20 for a growler of their Reckless Session Ale (refills are $17). That seemed a tad high for a low ABV house beer.

Overall, this place is larger than the original with more seating at the bar, but still not some impersonal beer hall / warehouse. They had extra staff on hand, and did a great job considering they've only been open for a week. Great experience overall.

Cool spot in Long Beach. Bartenders are all super friendly. Beer brewed on site is fantastic, and the guest taps typically contain imported sours. BBQ is KC style, and pretty solid. Must visit if you are in the LA area.

Great taplist both with their house beers, as well as a great selection of guest brews on tap as well. More than enough to choose from and everything is rotating with more than enough styles to choose from. Plenty of seating both indoors and out. Food is top notch barbeque for a west coast place, everything on the menu fits and is quite good. The service is nearly perfect, but a bit slow on bringing out the drinks. That is the only complaint I can possibly think of.

Had a day for Beer safari when stuck in LA due to flight problems. Hadheard great things about BBBQ and happy to check it out.
Got there for lunch and a beer. Mission accomplished.
Place was an interesting mix of metro city bar/restaurant with al fresco tables around perimeter...but facing alley/off street and buildings. Good idea...just tough location.
Once inside found a large bar and plenty of additional table seating. Sta at bar for food as well as beer. No disappointments. People were friendly and helpful. Fairly knowledgeable, but clearly knew their beers. My bar tender/server, Jamie, was excellent. Definitely enjoyed food. Shrimp with Green Fried Tomatoes/Aioli was flat out delicious...definitely one of best appetizers I've ever had. Had Brisket for main course. Because appetizer was so good...this was a bit of a return to reality, Very well made; decent taste. This wasn't Texas. Didn't have mac and cheese ready yet so had Blue cheese grits. Very good.
Great selection of beers. Great variety of their beers and collaboration brews. Happy to be able to try 4 GABF/World Cup medal beers and 2 great collabs. Beer reputation is well deserved.
If in LA or SD...Not sure I'd drive to Long Beach for BBBQ specifically, but if close I would stop every time. Good people, good food and really good beer.

Awesome and friendly staff, food is very good, I LOVE their IPAs and typically go that route when making my beer selection, although I have had many other beers from them. Plus, it's super close to my office so picking up a growler to go on Friday after work makes for an awesome start to the weekend!
