Visited December 12, 2013.
Stopped in on my way back from the Bruery. Traffic really sucks in LA and Orange counties during rush hour but on this day there were accidents and cops everywhere which made it even worse. When I finally arrived I was more interested in eating at Sr Burritos next door but I figured Iíd come this far so I might as well take a look. Actually, I had slightly higher expectations than Geneís rating below mine as I met the owner recently at a bottle share and he was talking the place up.
The store is very small and itís not even obvious what the name of the place is since the sign is small and itís hidden in a sea of advertisements. Inside youíll find a single aisle of coolers with only the side against the wall having any beer in it. At the back wall there are some more coolers but those are all the macros. In the little alcove in the back are the malt liquors, right next to the porn DVDs. The better beer selection is not bad despite being somewhat limited. I saw some of the newer Bruery releases along with AleSmith, Ironfire, Ballast Point, and some other San Diego brewers. I was pleasantly surprised to see the new batch of Rodenbach Caractere Rouge on the bottom shelf, albeit for $27. I canít say Iíd travel from Riverside to get here but it is one of a few good stores in the area so if/when Iím in West Covina / Puente again Iíll probably stop in.
Prices are a bit high, the service was very hands off, and getting in and out of this parking lot isnít easy if youíre headed north on Glendora. All that said, itís not a bad store.

This is a smallish grocery store wih a single row of coolers containing mainly sixers and bombers. There is a small selection of porn in the back right corner, so that gives it extra points for both selection and ambiance. .
