“Great casual bar / restaurant”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

You can always count on a good meal with great drinks and super friendly service. The filet mignon chili is the best!!! The tables by the window have a nice view for people watching and beach views. Somewhat loud during prime time Wait can be long on weekend nights or during big games but usually not too bad. Lots of tv's for sports fans and plenty of great beer choices. Try the Greek tacos if you like lamb. Fun place to meet friends Great food for kids too

“Great atmosphere, food, beer and service!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

BrewCo is a must if you're in Manhattan Beach. It's a casual, fun place to get lunch after a day at the beach or at night to watch the game. They have booths for families and bar tops for couples. Highly recommend stopping by the staff is super friendly.

“Non-beer drinkers seeks Framboise!!!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

So, for me not to be a beer drinker, I've had the hardest time finding a beer that I actually like until, a few years ago when I discovered Lindemans Framboise. As much as I travel, I rarely find it in the US. But, BrewCo had it, among the many selections they had on their beer menu!

Next, the food was basic, but it was plentiful and simply awesome. I had shrimp tacos, which were some of the better ones that I'd had in the area.

The service was fine for a bar. Though it was a bit crowded for my taste even though it was a Thursday evening. The atmosphere was loud, but not different for a popular bar.

This place is surely for the beer drinker who loves selecting from a variety of beers. But, us non-beer-drinkers will enjoy the eats and other items from the bar.

“More Hype than Substance”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

A brewing company that does not brew its own beer, hmm.
Advertised breach views, a far stretch.

Friday night, place is not too full, quickly get table, very friendly server. The service is excellent.
Expected a better beer experience, but menu had the same stuff as anywhere else. The pint glasses do "seem" small.

Ordered food, it was good.

I guess the name and location is hyped up, but at the end just a decent bar like any other, good food and excellent service, but just an average experience.

“it was a good experience.”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

went on an official first date last night here. it was busy but our waitress made effort to be prompt, courteous and attentive. We were seated quickly. I ordered the greek tacos on a whim, truly great and nice sizeable portions. the tzaizki sauce was amazing with the tacos. loved the ground lamb and I'm not a fan of lamb.
my date had the halibat tacos with rice and beans. He had no regrets. it truly was a great experience
