Beachwood BBQ & Brewing Restaurant Review

: Gastropubs are rarely considered destination dining, but Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach is the exception to the rule. What sets it apart --- and far above most --- is an on-site microbrewery that produces craft beers, and a “guest beer program” of 24 rotating taps that showcases some of the rarest and most notable suds around. Chef-owner Gabe Gordon has even designed a sophisticated system he calls the “Flux Capacitor” to dispense different beers with varying pressures and temperatures suited for each. This tasting experience is sure to impress even the geekiest beer geek --- and there are plenty hanging out here at the long wooden bar amid the industrial-chic décor of glass and polished concrete, or ensconced on the sprawling patio separated from the Promenade by a meadowy stretch of tall grasses. Seasonal beers, like a Tovarish Russian Imperial Espresso Stout, can be tasted as part of a customized beer flight, which we highly recommend. The food deftly hits the mark --- don’t miss duck confit tater tot casserole, crawfish bread and fried green tomatoes. Southern-style barbecue is dry-rubbed and slow-smoked with apple wood, almond and oak. Baby-back ribs and beef short ribs are just sticky enough and not too sweet, while pulled pork and smoked chicken are moist and tender. There’s also brisket, spicy andouille sausage and a grilled double-cut pork chop with a peach balsamic glaze. If you have room for dessert, pecan pie hits the spot.
