    Beachwood Brewing is celebrating a milestone anniversary with several parties on July 13
    • July 9, 2024

    Beachwood Brewing is celebrating 13 years of making beer by throwing a big daylong birthday party.

    “It’s surreal and it’s humbling. It’s been a pretty amazing journey,” said Julian Shrago, founder, co-owner and brewmaster of Beachwood Brewing.

    The award-winning brewery will be holding celebrations at its five locations on July 13. The birthday celebration will include beer releases, food specials, live music, even a magic show.

    “I think it’s going to be a fun and busy day,” Shrago said.

    Gabriel Gordon and wife Lena Perelman opened Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Seal Beach in 2006 as one of Orange County’s first gastropubs. But Beachwood didn’t make its own beer until 2011 when the couple teamed up with Shrago to open Beachwood Brewery in Long Beach.

    Since then the brewery has won several prestigious awards including the 2013 prize for Mid-Sized Brewpub of the Year at the Great American Beer Festival in Colorado, the World Beer Cup Champion Large Brewpub at the World Beer Cup Awards in 2016, and the silver and bronze at the Great American Beer Festival in 2023.

    “We’re fortunate to live in an area where there is a strong beer culture,” Shrago said.

    “We’ve been able to create a continuous passionate culture at Beachwood where people are really enthusiastic about the products and getting behind the products. We’re also always seeking to make things better,” he said.

    While the original Long Beach brewery and restaurant in downtown Long Beach, as well as the Seal Beach spot, have closed, Beachwood has expanded through the years opening other locations in Long Beach, Huntington Beach and Garden Grove.

    Here’s how the parties will roll out on July 13

    Beer release

    Beachwood will Introduce the new Hyperspeed IPA at all its locations. If you love hops, this is the beer for you, and it comes in at a 7.1% ABV too, so yeah, it’s a good party beer.

    Special sour beer releases

    These will only be available at Beachwood Brewing & Blendery at 247 N. Long Beach Blvd. in downtown Long Beach. The five new sours include the Funk Yeah Batch 6, a Gueuze-inspired sour ale, the City of Chaos, which is fermented and aged in bourbon barrels and the Pineapple Dragon OG. It’s fermented and aged in oak barrels with pineapple and dragon fruit.

    The magic of pizza

    The Beachwood Pizzeria and Taproom at  5205 Warner Ave., Huntington Beach will have a new 16-inch sourdough pie on the menu, plus magicians performing tricks from 6 to 8 p.m.

    Cornhole tournament

    Show off your cornhole skills at the Bixby Knolls taproom located at 3630 Atlantic Ave., Long Beach, during a tournament hosted by Long Beach Cornhole. The competition starts at 11:30 a.m. There  will also be live music at 7 p.m.

    Get tatted

    Don’t worry, they’re just temporary Beachwood tattoos offered at the 2nd & PCH taproom at 6430 Pacific Coast Highway and the Garden Grove location at 12900 Euclid St. The Garden Grove taproom will also have a craft market and DJs spinning tunes.
