Rasselbock Kitchen & Beer Garden - Long Beach, CA
First off, happy birthday to our friend Joe! This place is seriously a hidden gem within the streets of Long Beach. Along with the great community feel for friends and gatherings, they are also kid friendly - So people with children, feel welcomed to let your kids play on the several drawing tables and sandbox outside!
Every beer you order comes in its original glass and kegs of your favorites cost only about $40! They have great beers on draft and that you purchase by the bottle, wines both red and white and non-alcoholic drinks for those who like to play it safe! Their brunch menu is great and is served until 2pm and for fun Happy Hour all Monday long!
Since we came with a group of about 10 or more, we thought about playing the amazing board games they have as a group, but we ended up buying another keg - oops!
As far as food goes, we got some apps to share for the table - mini potato pancakes (topped with applesauce and mascarpone cheese) and deviled eggs (garlic aioli, smoked bacon and dill). For noms, my boyfriend and I tried their vegan options - the vegan Hamburg (vegan sausage with apple, Yukon gold potatoes and sage) and the vegan Berlin (. vegan sausage with eggplant, fennel, garlic, red wine and dried red bell pepper).
Everything was absolutely amazing and we are for sure going back!
