A little bit hard to give this place a low score...
The beer selection here is hardly better than your average Southern California corner liquor store these days. Most of the beers are from the big boys with a few random options like some gluten free beers and maybe a couple of "special" release beers like the Game of Thrones stuff from Ommegang.
That said, this place is AWESOME for wine and pretty damn solid for spirits as well. I’d highly recommend coming here if you’re interested in that. They also do wine tastings and can special order you bottles you’re interested in.

Conveniently located right in the heart of West Los Angeles - right between Santa Monica and Beverly Hills
Parking is very convenient - roof parking right above the joint.
Great ambiance - love the smell inside the store - smells like a wine cellar! amazing
Good selection of beers - lots of lost abbey stuff, stone, alesmith.
Great service and descent prices. I definitely reccomend it.

Let me start of by saying that this is probably the best wine store is the area. It is also one of the better beer stores in West Los Angeles. My favorite bottle shop because of it is conveniently located off the 405 freeway (alot closer than Vendome. They have most everything you could ask for. Good selection of Scottish and British beers. Some rare Japanese micros, most of the Alesmiths, Stones, Lost Abbey, Ballast Point, Green Flash, Speak Easy, Pizza Port. They have a good selection of imported Lambics, Rodenbach, 4 Mikkellers, some 4 or 5 Nogne. They have some rarish German stuff from Uerige, and a decent cider selection. Good bottle shop on the West side. I was very surprised that this one wasn’t on here. There is a very very nice restaurant and wine bar on the roof as well.
Original Rating was 88
This place’s beer selection has tumbled. The shelves are barren, and shrinking, no new distribution or special releases, about on par now with the Westwood Whole Foods for beer. Wine, Sake and Spirits are a different story, and this place is well worth it in those departments.
