I visited this brewery while attending a conference in Long Beach (it's a ways south of the convention center and a little tough to find, but well worth the drive). Between the Rock Bottom and this place, this was the best choice while in Long Beach. Anyway, I tried both the "Top Sail" pale ale and the "Crude" porter. They were both good (nothing spectacular). But after a long day at a conference, even a Coors Light would taste good (just kidding). My ribeye dinner was very good. Quite a large crowd. Nice place to visit if you happen to be in Long Beach. (560 characters)

Cool spot with a great view. The beer selection is good and at times they put out a brewers selection. A nice spot to take a bike ride and stop in for an appetizerr, warm sour dough bread and a good beer. One of my favorite spots to stop when I am chillin' on the pier. (269 characters)

This place doesn't have great food or great beer, but for some reason, I just really enjoy going here. I don't know if it's just the overall atmosphere, the cheap pitchers or just comfortable seating, but I just like it. The beer is sorta whatever.. Average. However, they do offer something called "Topathon", which is a blend of their Top Sail Blonde and Marathon Amber. Separate, they aren't great, together, magic happens. Order a pitcher of it, and enjoy. (460 characters)

If you feel like dodging a smattering of urban outdoorsmen and their full shopping carts on the way in, you will really enjoy this place. Great food, very sizable portions and terrific beer. I appreciate the fact that they stick with traditional, low ABV English styles and don't try to go all gimmicky with boozy imperial IPAs. The Pale and Top Sail were both excellent. They also have a generous selection of local guest beers. Overall, I give this place a strong recommendation. It's definitely worth the visit if you are within 10 miles or so. (547 characters)

I stopped by Belmont Brewing after seeing it for the past 4 years while courting my now wife. The inside is a bit run down and almost seems like a Denny's or something that happens to brew beer. The brewery equipment is behind the bar and I am not too sure it is the same stuff they use to make their beers. Quality was pretty good and the service was the same. The selection of beer is pretty decent but nothing stood out really. Prices for the beers were reasonable. I wouldn't really recommend this place unless you are a ticker like me and want to try all of their beers ($6 for a 6 beer sampler). (601 characters)

I really really REALLY want to like this place... I don't hate it... but they are extrodinarly BLAND. Their food ... they have great concepts... but... it taste like frozen food. It is not fresh tasting...

Their beer... same thing, it is good... but it is nothing special. The Hop Head Red I really liked... I have gotten a few growler fills of that, for $9 for a fill, can't beat that... But as for the rest, tastes pretty generic... This could be a premier beer spot, if they step up their game a bit. (505 characters)

I made a quick stop at BBC, and here's what I got:

PROS: Overlooks the water, solid house selection of beers (six varieties, including the infamous Long Beach Crude), solid selection of guest brews (Stone, Green Flash, and Franiskaner) good happy hour given at three potential timeslots, reasonable prices on pints. 20 ounce imperial pints are offered as well.

CONS: Interior reminiscent of a family restaurant from the early 90s. While the Long Beach Crude was nice, I was a little short poured on it. The brewing equipment behind the bar looks out of place given the decoration on the interior.

VERDICT: I'll admit I haven't tried the other beers, but the Long Beach Crude is reason enough to make a trip. (712 characters)

My girl lives across the street from BBC so I have been coming in regularly for about a year. I find the the atmoshere fun and the service is not as bad as some of the posts I have read, might have been a busy or off night for them? Just get here earlier than later if there is a good game on because the bar fills up quick.

The Beer usually consists of about five home brews and five guest brews. Their home IPA is what I come for but I do have to say it gets better and the flavors come out more on the second pint..! Little to no head or carbination but the grapefruit really starts to come through. The Long Beach Crude is decent as well but you can definitley taste the alcohol and see it floating on top (hence the name).

The food has always been good, the grilled atrichoke and crab cakes are great (but not on the menu so ask for them!)

Overall I find it to be a fun and relaxing place with a nice view of the water and it's on the pier so you can't go wrong there. (978 characters)

Stopped in on Saturday 5/29/2010, during the Lakers play off game. Cool atmosphere if you want to party and watch the game but if you want to get a seat and eat or drink, big mistake.

This place is right on the water. Real nice area but no where to park. Lots of windows and some nice outside seating on the patio. There are TV's positioned around the bar and plenty of small tables.

Didnt eat the food but the beer selection wasn't real impressive. There were a couple good guest tapes but the 5 house beers ranged from what ever to garbage. $1/sample isnt too bad though.

Not interested in going back to Long Beach just for this place. (642 characters)

Cool place to hangout by the beach if you get the munchies or wanna grab a brew if you didn't already bring some in a cooler. The place is preety cool cause it looks like its on a pier near the water and offers some alright brew. When I was a beer rookie their strawberry blonde was one of my favorite beers of all time. The selection is decent with basic styles and the quality of the brews are average, nothing special but a cool place to grab a bite to eat and have couple of beers if you find yourself your by belmont shores. (529 characters)
