I heard about this place a few years back but since Orcutt is half way between my usual destinations I’m normally pissed off at my gas drinking, piston clinking, air polluting, smoke belching buggy from Detroit city and just continue to keep on driving. Glad I stopped though since of the five or six rateable liquor stores in the area this one is probably the best, including the new Bevmo.
When you walk in the fridges are all on the left side of the store and half a dozen of them have beer in them. The first couple are full of macros but the last couple have some good stuff. Not an amazing selection, just the usual stuff liike Stone, Ballast Point, Bear Republic, Sierra Nevada, and the common imports. Then I turned around and saw the entire wall of un-refrigerated beers. Bruery, AleStmith, Coronado, Manzanita, Moylans, Clown Shoes, Port, Ninkasi, Marin, Firestone, Strand, Santa Cruz Mountain, each with it’s own little cubbie-hole. The top row is all imports. Good selection over all.
Prices are decent and it’s in a large shopping center so parking is easy as is finding this place. If you don’t see it right away look to the right of the CVS and look for the banner out front from Figueroa Mountain.
