    I know nobody here needs a reason to not drink Golden Road, but anyway

    Anyone know how to see what cans they have at Beachwood Long Beach? Is that the preferred location?

    Beachwood Long Beach is the best location for having the most Beachwood beers available to try. Seal Beach has more guest beers, and some will tell you it’s food is a notch above LB. to see what’s available in cans, go to the website and click on the “hopcam” tab. On the right side of the beer menu you’ll see the “to-go” menu for beers.

    I think I see that for LB. Only care about cans. Is the LB cam accurate? Shows no house beers on draft.

    Can availability at Long Beach and Huntington Beach is almost always the same if HB happens to be closer to you. HB doesn't list cans online though.

    Current lineup is: LBC, Citraholic, Amalgamator, Mocha Machine, Coconudder. System of a Stout comes out next week. Hopcam is live and accurate.

    They used to have more of a mix of guest beers and house beers and displayed them similarly to Seal Beach. With 30+ house beers now, LB just lists them on website/menu.

    Yes, it's a bit irregular.

    Anybody getting in on the Highland Park release? Site keeps saying bad gateway or no option to purchase. What is this, Talkbeer?

    Does anyone know if any local breweries / bottle shops take back PakTech can carriers? Although I would guess there is probably some health rules against reusing these. I saw that PakTech has a recycling partner in Chino but I don't plan on being out that way anytime soon. Would be cool if some of the local breweries acted as collection centers. I have about 50 of these and it would be a shame to send them to the landfill and it sounds like they are not recyclable in the standard Los Angeles single stream system.

    EDIT: HDPE #2 is in fact recyclable in Los Angeles or at least Republic Services claims it sorts for HDPE #2. Whether or not things like can carriers make it through the sorting process is another question.

    From what I gather they go to the landfill.

    Does Highland Park do an oak fermented Pils in cans? Growlers?
