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.

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!
