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.

This place is nice for taco tuesday, surprisingly good tacos. Felt like they didn't appreciate me just drinking when I took a nice spot on the patio on a date. However they do have some good beers and good tacos. Staff can be hit or miss.

Go for the ocean view and beer. The Long Beach crude is a must have. The food is ok.

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.

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.

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.

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).
