    When the Gov said that some places could re-open. :grimacing:

    BWLB Reopening Update:

    It has been a wild ride to say the least. The past week has been filled with testing, community support, re-cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing. After all our efforts to go above and beyond the CDC recommendations to ensure the safety of our staff and customers, we are happy to say that our Long Beach location will be reopening tomorrow, Wednesday 7/8.

    We’ll be open for:�-Dine-in service out on our patio�-Call in for Takeout BBQ: 562-436-4020�-Order online beer To Go + Local Delivery

    We are especially proud of our team’s response to this crisis. Thankfully the extensive precautions and safety measures we’ve implemented as a team have proven to be working. All of our employees have now tested negative two consecutive times for COVID-19. We return to work with an even stronger belief that we are all in this together and that our extreme efforts to keep everyone safe are working.

    Thank you agin for all the support, especially over these last few months. We hope to see you again soon - for BBQ and beers on the patio, takeout or delivery.

    -The Beachwood Team

    Dined at BWLB yesterday. It felt nice to be back and get beer on tap and good food. Staff was super on top of cleaning everything and making sure everybody was spaced out.

    Good to hear. My other local RiiP just closed today because one of their employees tested positive for Covid. It’s like a domino effect. I hope he/she is doing fine. Just the stress of knowing is bad enough.

    Canned Melrose! Looks like I’ll be loading up on some Beachwood next week. Melrose, Citraholic and Amalgamator would look nice in my fridge right about now.

    I got the Amalg, CH and Greenshift from last weeks drop. Melrose and fresh CH will be a nice addition.

    Picked up 50 beers today for about $100 including $5 tip. 18 Foam Top, 12 Hayabusa, 12 LBC and 8 Amalgamator. All canned very recently.

    Damn grateful for you Beachwood!

    Ordered a sixer of Foam Top, a four of Mocha Machine and a bottle of the BA Malted Jacket from the HB taproom last week I think.

    I was told when I got there, a minute after I placed my order, someone ordered the EXACT same items.

    So I'm wondering, which one of you was it and when are we meeting up after COVID? :joy:

    Change the location to Long Beach and add a Fizzical and it was me!

    Their BBQ kits are really a pretty good deal, and their package beer prices are pretty good as well.

    New Beachwood beer Disciples of Dankness out today on draft at the Long Beach location. At the HB and GG location in a couple of 2 or so weeks. I’m seeing a lot of west coast greatness being released lately. Keep them coming. West is best.

    I was in Vegas last week at the Tuscany and they had Greenshift cans in their pub. What a nice surprise.
    Also found a beer from Evil Twin called NY is a nice place to visit. NEIPA but drank like a triple with only 7.5% ABV. Real good beer.

    Thanks for the heads up, will hit Tuscany's during my Vegas trip next week. I'm stoked to see a dozen Beachwood offerings currently available at Khoury's in Henderson. Heading there first thing off the plane for provisions, mostly Beachwood IPAs.

    Pub 365. One of the best beer lists near the strip

    I picked up a bottle of Draper's Dram and really enjoyed it. It's a manhattan-inspired old ale, bourbon-barrel aged with spices. Very well balanced and if you drink it in the evening you can imagine it's fall! $10.99 for a 12oz bottle.

    Crowning Star coming out 10/21.

    This was a WCIPA they brewed for the Hopadelic Trip that got disrupted by COVID and never saw mass release. Fresh batch, available in four packs at all taprooms and available for CA shipping.

    lots of new beers on tap and some new Blendery bottles. Might have to swing in for a pint of the Speed Metal on cask

    Let us know how that speed metal is? I’m sure it’s great. I’ll wait till it goes on tap at the HB location. :heavymetal: Long Live Rock. R.I.P. Eddie.

    Missed out on the cask Speed Metal, but regular Speed Metal is fantastic. Grabbed a crowler of it and Denver Jackhammer (one of my favorites)

    Beachwood has been alluding to something coming in 2021...shall we engage in wild speculation? My favorite theory is they're going to offer some sort of membership program

    Really loved Melrose, glad I had an opportunity to pick up in Vegas. Khakis Or Car Keys was OK, as was the LBC, the only WCIPA from Beachwood I merely liked vs. loved. I didn't make it to Tuscany 365, most of the current list consisted of beers I could get at home, but had some good West Coast IPAs at several bars and breweries throughout the valley.

    Glad Beachwood again had a Fall drop again in Chicago last week, including 1 week old Amalgamator cans. We did not receive the larger allotment received last year of Blendery bottles and seasonal kegs like Hops over Brixton, likely due to the fact brewery reps traveled here for FOBAB last year, cancelled except for remote judging / awards this year.

    I didn't pick up Haze 28 in the current drop, bought more Amalgamator instead, though would consider picking it up if recommended in this thread as an excellent haze vs. a typical haze. Not really a big haze guy, though I do enjoy balanced well crafted haze like M-43.

    It's an IPA. That's it. Brewed "with utter contempt for 2020." While I can get behind that and will of course be buying some...I was hoping it would be something bigger

    Surprised its not being released on 11/3 but then again its prob a good idea to avoid that day regardless of outcome.

    Initial thoughts: it's good, but nothing mindblowing. Nice hop flavor. Would like it to be more crisp. I would've preferred another canning run of Simcoast or Double Gator
