Our President may prefer his own golden honey ale to the deep pleasures of roasted malt and barley, but at least Beachwood BBQ is ready to paint the White House black this week. On Thursday evening, the Long Beach slow-smoker and beer haven is celebrating dark brews during "Stout of the Union," an all-night exploration and appreciation of eighteen special varieties of the lurid ale, including espresso stouts, milk stouts, Armenian stouts named for local rock stars, and barrel-aged and smoked stouts among its wide range of offerings. The party starts at 6:00 P.M., with the brewery's own examples of stout on tap, along with the likes of Dogfish Head and Epic Brewing on draft, and a few rarities from the bottle. See the full list of stouts that will be in the house down below. January 31 at 210 E 3rd St. Long Beach; 562-436-4020.
