LONG BEACH - Joe Jost's, one of Long Beach's oldest watering holes, is pouring a new brew online.
The 85-year-old bar, known for its pickled eggs and drafts served at 29 degrees, launched a new Web site Tuesday,www.joejosts.com, that gives viewers a glimpse inside.
But there's more to it. To celebrate the new site, the tavern at 2803 East Anaheim St. plans to host a Saturday fundraiser for the Long Beach City College Athletics Department. All of the sales between 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. will benefit the program.
Computers will be set up in the bar area, allowing customers to explore the new Web site.
"We are very happy with the new site," Ken Buck, grandson of the original owner, said in a press release. "We think it captures the history and laid-back atmosphere of Joe Jost's. I think my grandfather would be proud."
His grandfather, Joe Jost, opened the bar in 1924 inside an old barber shop.
