The unpretentious Belmont Brewing Company is laid-back with a congenial vibe. Local beer, local crowd, and the best of the local view makes it my kind of spot to unwind.
Rent a bike at the Bike Station on 1st Street in Downtown Long Beach, and cruise along the beachfront path. BBC is right next to the Veteran’s Memorial Pier and the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool. Snag a seat outdoors and watch the world slip by as you sip on your Head Brewer Blackwell ales.
Go in the late afternoon to watch the sun sink closer toward the horizon. If you're around for the weekend, go here for brunch (from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.)
