Default Good Beer or Breweries Around Long Beach?

Hi there. The wife and I are heading to Long Beach, CA for a wedding reception. Anyone have recommendations for good beer bars or breweries in or around Long Beach? Thanks!

I work in LB. Sorry to say, not much here. You might have some luck downtown in the Queen Mary area. There are a few little bars along 2nd street in Belmont Shores

If you are willing to head up to LA/Hollywood, I could give you a ton of recommendations.

Rock bottom brewery on pine and ocean is pretty good. Congregation Ale House is a few blocks south of rock bottom and Belmont brewing is maybe a mile south right at the belmont pier.

Belmont is pretty much a beer wasteland.

Go a little firther south to Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach. Great food, awesome beer selection.

Another option is heading south a bit to Manhattan Beach. Beer isn't too bad, food's pretty decent, and there are a lot of hotties walking around the area.

I used to travel to Irvine, CA for work, and would fly home on the Thursday evening redeye. I'd drop my luggage off at LAX around 6PM, drive to Manhattan Beach for beers and dinner, drive back to Hertz, and take shuttle back to airport. Used to do it every other week like clockwork!

We'll be staying about 1/2 mile from Pine Ave area. Not too far from the Queen Mary. We're thinking about doing the touristy LA/Hollywood thing but haven't decided yet. The Congregation Ale House looks like it has a pretty good selection.

It has been a number of years but I'm pretty sure manhattan beach is about 18 miles north of long beach.

In Long beach, I recall enjoying "the yard house". a lot of beers on tap, served out of the yard tall glasses.

I didn't realize there was a Yard House there. The one in Waikiki was awesome! That may have to be the requisite beer stop in Long Beach. And it's about a 15 minute walk from the hotel.

Hollywood is a shvt hole. Go to LACMA or The Getty instead.
