At first it must have seemed like a wacky idea: put a beer-oriented pub in the middle of a wine-centered town. It may have been the smartest business decision in recent history. Simmzy’s is easily the busiest restaurant in Manhattan Beach, packed almost from the moment they open each day. There are over 25 different beers on tap here and the selection changes regularly. Patrons have been known to study the chalkboard beer menu intently while waiting in line to get in. The food menu was deliberately crafted to go along with the flavors of beer and ales and the whole package has been so successful that other Simmzy’s have opened using this place as a template. The Simms Brothers of Kettle fame are heroes to the local beer community for championing the brew. Other restaurateurs must wish they’d thought of it first. 229 Manhattan Beach Blvd., Manhattan Beach. (310) 546-1201
