In the age-old debate over dry-vs.-wet rub when barbecuing, Beachwood BBQ and Brewery in Long Beach fiercely makes a strong case for dry – although defiant diners will nonetheless find a variety of sauces on their tables. The younger sister of the original Seal Beach location is hog heaven if you like pigging out on long-marinated and slow-smoked North Carolina-style pulled pork and baby back ribs that go perfect with the brewery’s 36 craft beers, including a few house-made ones. If you don’t swing the way of swine, try the brisket, lamb and beef ribs or smoked chicken. Though the ‘que here is the main attraction, don’t gloss over the appetizers and sides, which feature typical Southern fare, from fried green tomatoes to macaroni and cheese, as well as more modernized comfort food like the tater tot casserole with duck gravy, vanilla-scented pecan yams and lamb corn dogs. There’s even a late-night happy hour menu for stragglers that includes a pulled pork sandwich for a mere five bucks.
