A Peek into Our History

Whether you are a local or on a vacation in Southern California, soak yourself in the sunny beaches and sample some refreshing cold beer at the pubs in Long Beach. Of course, for the lovers of a good chilled beer it is Joe Jost’s all the way! From the time Joe Jost’s was been established in 1924, it has gained the reputation for serving the coldest beer town among all the pubs in Long Beach.

Joe Jost was born in a small Hungarian town called Istranfold, now in Yugoslavia. He had a dream to journey to America. When he was sixteen years old, he sailed to America and landed at New York Harbor. Eventually, he came up to California and in 1924 started Joe Jost’s that was to become an icon among pubs in Long Beach. To this day it’s  a right of passage to visit Joe Jost’s on your 21st birthday and wear your signature Joe Jost’s shirt with pride.

The food and drink served at our pub is as famous as the name. No other pubs in Long Beach serve beer as chilled as at Joe Jost’s. But the most special delicacy among all the pubs in Long Beach is the legendary in-house pickled eggs. They even have created a pickled egg kick so you can make your own batch at home. The perfect gift for out of towners who long for a Joe’s special and a pickled egg.

Do visit Joe Jost’s, a legend among the pubs in Long Beach and be a part of our history. We look forward to meeting you.
