Visited last night to compare/contrast to the original in Seal Beach.

Top notch across the board. Menu was very much like Seal Beach, with some really unique offerings, although I went for the pulled pork sandwich on a pretzel role - delicious, and perfect with many of the beers.

The service was also quite good. My bartender (Dave?) was really knowledgeable about all things beer, and was giving some lessons to a non-beek sitting next to me.

There were 6 house drafts, and about 25 guest beers - mostly unique stuff from around SoCal, but also had Jolly Pumpkin and St. Bernardus Abt 12 on. I had Port's Feeding Frenzy, Telegraph Reserve Wheat, and Lawsons/Bruery Acer Quercus.

I was surprised to hear that they're "not allowed" to sell an empty growler... it's just a glass vessel, so that seemed fishy. Ponied up $20 for a growler of their Reckless Session Ale (refills are $17). That seemed a tad high for a low ABV house beer.

Overall, this place is larger than the original with more seating at the bar, but still not some impersonal beer hall / warehouse. They had extra staff on hand, and did a great job considering they've only been open for a week. Great experience overall.

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.
