Hop to it: Beachwood BBQ & Brewing’s tasty Melrose IPA is back in bottles and is now available at both Beachwood locations: Long Beach and Seal Beach. Per their website, Melrose IPA is: “A full-blown ‘West Coast’ IPA chocked full of sticky hop resins.” It’s brewed with American 2-row malt and a bit of honey, which complements the flavors of the Simcoe and Amarillo hops.

> Beachwood’s super bowl take-out specials are kick-off ready: platters of smoked chicken nachos, smoked buffalo wings, or pulled pork sliders are available for pre-order and pick-up. The Long Beach location is also offering $1 off any Beachwood growler fill. ($2 off with any food purchase.) More information. > Beachwood BBQ & Brewing, 131 1/2 Main St., Seal Beach, 562-493-4500; and 210 E 3rd St., Long Beach, 562-436-4020.

Ready to rumble? Golden Road Brewing is opening the doors of its semi-private event space, Chloe’s, for super bowl Sunday. They’re airing the big game on a very big screen—120 inches, bro—and serving up their full pub menu along with plenty of beer. Contests, prizes, and hijinks will also ensue. No cover; RSVPs to [email protected] are strongly recommended. More information. > Chloe’s at Golden Road Brewing, 5410 W San Fernando Rd., Atwater Village, 213-373-4677.

One pill makes you larger: Did you miss Eagle Rock Brewery’s 4th Anniversary party last weekend? That means you missed a taste of their newest beer, White Rabbit, an Imperial Witbier with “a bold citrus character and subtle hints of chamomile and coriander”… not to mention a bold 11% alcohol by volume. Not to worry… it’s on draft at the brewery starting today, and for a limited time, will also be available for growler fills. > Eagle Rock Brewery, 3056 Roswell St., Eagle Rock, 323-250-2337.

A little O.C. shoutout: Noble Ale Works is releasing its newest Double IPA, dubbed Nelson Showers, today at the brewery. Bottles should also become available at better craft beer bottle shops in the coming weeks. If stopping by the brewery to get a bottle tonight, you can also stick around to watch Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa at 7:30 p.m. (They sure know a way to my heart!)

> They’ve also got their third anniversary celebration coming up on February 8, with unlimited pours of 34 of their beers on tap, live music, and five food trucks in attendance: The Grilled Cheese Truck, Dos Chinos, Seabirds Truck (a personal favorite that’s also vegan!), BACON MANia Truck, and Slater’s 50/50. Tickets start at $40. More information. > Noble Ale Works, 1621 S Sinclair St., Suite B, Anaheim, 714-634-2739.
