Checked this place out on 7/5/11 for its grand opening. Beachwood II is located on 3rd St. in downtown Long Beach, in a cramped little area of the city. Street parking can be a problem, but they will validate parking from the adjacent lot for up to 3 hours.

Walking in its quite a bit larger than the original location. In the center is a long bar with at least 20 seats. Surrounding that are a bunch of little tables with some booths at the south end.

Selection was great, lots of local stuff for the opening. Had a Lost Abbey Framboise de Amarosa, Craftsman Sour Braggot, and a Port Ocean Beach Bacon and Eggs Imperial Porter. Only tried one of the house beers, Kilgore Stout, and thought it was pretty good, nice job Julian.

Service was solid, took a tad too long to get a beer at one point, but I guess there's a lot more people to serve here. Justin seems to be the head guy here, so you know the service will good.

I didn't have any of the food, but it looks like it's the same for the most part as Beachwood I's menu, and I know how I feel about that.

I really liked the location, unfortuantely it's more than twice as distant as Beachwood I and the traffic up 2nd and Ocean can suck, so it's not a place I'll probably go that often, mostly when something interesting is on-tap and spend most of the time at Beachwood I. Nevertheless, Long Beachers in the area have a great new restaurant, just wish it was in Huntington.

Came here for a Societe tap take over. While the Societe beers were good, the Beachwood beers stole the show. They brew a lot of different beers and have a lot on tap. Tried 6 - 8 and didn't have one I didn't enjoy. The food was pretty good but honestly that's not why I was there. As far as the vibe goes it's nothing special. Was pretty packed with a typical restaurant like feel. Will definitely go back though.

Purposely drove from the I.E. just to try the place out, based on having their beers at festivals, etc. Easy to find location with ample parking ($$) nearby. Large eating area with both in and outdoor options plus a bar for those getting a pint without food. Laid back vibe with large, readable signs for what was on tap.

Service was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable about the beers being served. Beachwood has a lot of their beers on tap plus some guest taps and bottle selections. While there were no special releases available the day we went, there was so much on tap, there was something everyone should like. I started easy with their Breaker Hoppy Pale and the wife went straight for the Udder Love Stout. Spot on great brews!

We ordered appetizers and regular food while we were there. Their BBQ sauces are awesome and food portions are generous/delicious. Lots to choose from and if you can't decide right away, order their chips and dip (excellent) while you sip a beer reading the menu.

Got to try all the IPAs they were offering that day plus all the stouts and porters. Not a bad one in the bunch. Beachwood is cranking out awesome beers and it's worth the drive from wherever you are to give them a try. Their IPAs are good enough that I passed on having a pint of Pliny while I was there (one of several guest taps that day).
