For the long beach location:

In the base of a newer loft building, large glass roll up doors connect a large shaded/heated patio with the smaller main dining area. Sat at a comfy round booth, also there were many tables and chair settings. Large glass window behind the main bar that looks into the brewery.

Have been waiting to try Beachwood in general for a long time and the new brewpub specifically. Overall I thought the beer was solid if not particularly exciting - all were well balanced and smooth. Had slightly higher expectations for the house beers based on history of Beachwood.

Attentive service.

Very nice tap and bottle list. I focused on the house brews since I had never visited before, but the guest taps included many beers I had never had, not to mention heard of. 8 house brews on tap running the style gambit, you can get flights of 4 - so amongst our party we tried them all. Then decided to have a pint of Melrose IPA 9my hop centric favorite) Also do half pours of the guest taps - tried a Moylans Hop Craic. Also many bottles on their list that are not common to find in the typical beer centric establlishment, with semi-reasonable prices: examples being FW15, 50/50 eclipse, 3f, etc.

Focused food menu, but again slightly let down from what my expectations were. Tried the BBQ brisket (too dry), chicken (quite good) and pulled pork (too dry). Also the chicken nachos (interesting), hush puppies, cornbread and both a field green and butter lettuce salad (my favorites). We might have made a mistake by not ordering any ribs - but that was beyond my control. Bar B Q sauces were good, appreciated the sweet and spicy choices. Large portions.

All in all a fun place with a great beer selection, that I will definitely go back to. Know that you can park in the building and get 3hrs validation.

Kid friendly, lots of families for lunch on a Sunday (1,881 characters)

This place is a must if you love beer. They have an amazing selection and everything they brew is out of this world. The Irish red is superb and so are all the stouts. I was really pleased with my food the 1st time I went there, ordered the char burger and it was tasty and the plate was descent sized. Second time got some bbq and the brisket was really disappointing. Meat was dry and flavorless, the sides were tiny but good. (429 characters)

This is your spot if you love IPAs and like some good food to go with them. Their IPA selection is top notch. They've recently had upwards of 20+ house-brewed beers on tap which is a good thing. Bottle selection is OK but it's really all about grabbing a fresh pint! (269 characters)

Visited June 2015:

This is a must hit if you are in the area. Great location, really good beer and good BBQ.

They must have had 15 or so tap and a cask (not in operation for my visit, but still worth noting). They were having a tap takeover the next night, which is pretty cool of them. A wide selection of style (I had an EBS, a Stout and a Kolsch). The food was really good, the meat was cooked to perfection and the sauces were just as good.

I will definitely be back the next time that I am even close. (515 characters)

This was a great find - h/t mayor.

BBQ was tasty AF. I had the brisket. The beers were all great. Our server and the bartenders were great. The only knock was the homeless guy outside threatening to fight several passersby. (227 characters)

Love Beachwood! The Long Beach location is a great spot to get a pint and some food. The tap list is pretty extensive, between lots of in-house offerings and guest taps. The food selections are pretty solid and the vibe is super laid-back and chill. The Long Beach location is much larger, than the original Seal Beach spot and can accommodate larger crowds and provides ample parking. (389 characters)

If you're in LA, you should definitely stop here or its much smaller sister outlet in Seal Beach. Great selection of homemade brews and visiting beers with top-notch barbecue. Long Beach location also a nice beer garden (219 characters)

Great casual tasting room with excellent food. They have more craft beer than their own beers, but have a nice selection to cover any mood. Third dimension and ANNihilator are very good. (186 characters)

Came here for lunch with the co-workers and for beers on my own later that day.
Great food, awesome selection of home-brand beers and a damn good selection of guest taps.
And the bottle list, which is good, isn't at all over-priced. Firestone Walker 18 for $28...that's retail!
Would have loved to stay longer but I was hellbent on finding bottles for sale...and I struck out.
Worth a stop in for sure. (404 characters)
