Arrived early Friday afternoon to a not too busy brewpub. Excellent draft selection with all styles represented. Downed a couple flights that included both West Coast & NEIPA, Imperial Stout & Porter as well as a couple of their blendery Belgians. All were well crafted & tasty and the food quite good (Memphis style ribs...yummy)

I really like the setup of this place! Very trendy in a nice part of Downtown Long Beach. Outside areas to sit...nice, comfortable bar to chill at. Customer service was great and felt welcomed and taken care of. Excellent choices of beer and the food was pretty good! This will be a go to spot for me when traveling!

Been here several times. Their beer selection is abundant, most of which is brewed on premise and very good. Lots of very well done IPA’s and many other excellent choices and styles. The food here is just as good. Many choices with several possibilities. If you like an aggressive IPA and some good grub, make a stop here. I will be back.

Beachwood in Long Beach brews some really nice stuff. I've had their beers over the years, but I finally had the opportunity to visit their Long Beach location. It was crowded! I didn't know going in, but it was their 6th anniversary event. I'm glad they are doing well.

Next time I'd like to try their food that I've heard nice things about. The beer selection was excellent today. Will be back when in the area.

Has a bit more industrial feel when compared to the original location, but on the other hand can support a lot of fans as well as tap takeover events with somewhat relative ease.

On the patio there are fire pits and benches for easy people watching on the promenade.

Don't forget the free parking as well, extremely useful in long beach.

This is for there place in Huntington beach. Great taproom. Standard building with a nice seating area with usb and power plugs right there. Also some games. The beer selection the day I was there was killer. Lots of variety. Got a sampler flight of ipa's. They were all great. Definitely stop here.

Nifty place near downtown Long Beach in a modern space yet with fantastic retro branding. The beer selection is astounding with around 24 drafts and a great representation of styles, but holy cow West coast IPAs Batman! Amalgamator in particular was downright gnarly - I could drink that beer like water.

We have never had a more talkative, thorough and knowledgable server at any brewery. He knew which hops were in what ales, he recommended what to drink with what food, what on tap was freshest, the best selling beers, et cetera. Just nuts.

They also make most of their food from scratch, including a ridiculous selection of legit BBQ. Honestly we were both very underwhelmed with the food here, which also isn't the cheapest. I had the ribs and the wife had their sweet potato burger, and neither of us were very impressed.

However, great atmosphere, great people, great beer - can't pass that up!

Beachwood is a must visit for avid beer fans who also like BBQ. It's in the neat section of Long Beach and has a 60's like feel. The place was Hopping on a Tuesday night. The beer and food were quite good. Troy our server was cool and helped to pick a few beers off the length menu. There is plenty to chose from. The food was excellent....had the three meat....pork, ribs and brisket....pork was the best...followed by brisket....for sides I had the blue cheese grits and vanilla yams....both very good.

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).

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

Pretty good food for lunch or a casual dinner. Service was friendly and server brought me several tasters before I decided on a growler choice. Fair prices and I've never waited long for a seat. I just wish they had bottles to go....

This place has awesome hoppy beers and the guest beers aren't bad at all either. Thanks to Julian's great brewing a hophead like myself has been able to try the best IPA's produced in Southern California. The food is also great, can't go wrong with fried pickles and BBQ chicken nachos! Definitely Recommend!
