Its time to veer off from the world of food for just a bit and show off a great place to get beer, beer, and more beer. It’s an awesome place on Main St, that has some excellent brews, just watch out for the guy that steals the chairs.
Huntington Beach Beer Company – Main St, Huntington Beach
My bro ,who is staying in HB, took me to a few of the great spots in and around town. I’ll be throwing a few on here. From here on out, the place will be known as HBBC because I don’t feel like typing that whole thing out every time I use the name.
We shared a pitcher of the wheat beer, which was actually pretty damn good. I’m not always a fan of the hef but theirs is done well. It would be great to drink on one of those days when you’re out in the hot sun watching other people work. We didn’t try too many others because it was just the beginning of our alcoholic adventure.
The place itself is upstairs, which can be a problem for most of us alcoholics. Negotiating stairs drunk is a lot like a Pauly Shore movie. Yeah it’s got funny parts, but for the most part it is going to be bad. Another good reason to spread out the drinking.
They do have some great TV action, so it is a great place to watch sports. They also have a patio with an outstanding view. It’s the perfect place to start off a first date when that game you were watching is still on, but you still want to make a good impression. She’ll think you’re awesome for picking a great place to drink and you’ll get the chance to see your boys wrap up the game on TV.
I do have a couple general complaints. First, the help could increase the whole “happy, glad to see ya” thing. They spend a lot of time having fun and laughing with each other, but as far as interacting with the public, they lean more towards “lets just get it over with”. Maybe they were just upset about the current state of the economy.
The other thing that was odd is that this dude came by and took all the bar stools. He didn’t say why, he just said he needed to remove the stools. I figured he received some kind of vision and had to build something so the voices would stop. Still, standing with a pitcher of beer doesn’t work as well as sitting comfortably. I was hoping at that point for some kind of break dancing competition to break out with the new amount of space made. But alas, no cardboard in sight.
We used the chair removal as our cue to hit up the next spot. I would definitely hit up this place again. They have some great beer and feature some nice seasonal brews. They have some awards from the LA County Fair and the CA State Fair. Silver medals abound throughout the taps; it’s definitely a great place to drink. If you eat there, let me know how the food is.
