Don’t Rule Out LA When It Comes to Great Beer

2 of 12
The Swiss Army knife of breweries, Beachwood serves up world class beers across a wide variety of styles. Like West Coast IPAs? Stock your fridge with cans of Amalgamator and Citraholic. A fan of coffee beers? Tovarish, System of a Stout, and Mocha Machine are all buzzworthy. Brown or red ale? Check. Prefer blondes? Foam Top is a cut above. They even have an offshoot brewery (The Blendery) with an emphasis on Belgian-style sours. It’s no wonder this Long Beach sensation has earned a Michael Phelpsian haul of Great American Beer Fest medals, including the coveted Best Large Brewpub award.
