ZaRue  (1) Laguna Laguna Niguel, California | April 4, 2006
BevMo seems to have a fairly decent selection of craft brews and world beers. They also offer beer tastings every Friday afternoon at most stores. Some locations do have larger beer selections than others. (They also have a huge selection of wine, with wine tastings on Saturdays.) The staff is well traind and quite knowlegeable, with some employees that specialize in beer, wine and spirits. You can ask all kinds of bar related questions... they always seem to find the right answers. Pretty good for a mini-warehouse style store. Food is limited to a good selection of bar snacks, cheeses and several types of caviar. Great selection of barware and accessories. [The Laguna Niguel store that has been open for over a year is not listed on RateBeerís list but is listed on the bevmo.com website.]

Very big store, went in on a visit to Cali. Excellent selection of micros. Picked up some Stone, Moylans, and very happily found 2 beermans barleywine. Very good service as well, there was always someone around to answer questions and get a box for us. Very nice store.

Huge selection. Big store with lots of room. I went twice when visiting Disneyland. I didnít even notice a fridge. The staff leaves you alone while you shop. Good website as well. Just canít ship back to Canada.

Definitely a beer heaven, the one and only problem is the fact that BevMo does not sell by the single bottle, you have to buy six packs. They are reasonably priced on some items, while others make your eyes bug out in horror. They have an excellent selection of glassware, belgians and calfornian/locla micros. Their employees are definitely knowledgeable, and they do allow 5% rewards for spending 250$. Definitely worth the trek!

They are a bit pricey, IMO, but they always have a good selection of beers. The downside is that you can't buy by the bottle, only the six pack. They don't let you mix sixers either.

I visted the one in Pasadena on Arroyo Pkwy.Selection was real good.The layout and the staff were good.The only thing that dissapointed me was that they donít ship from the store.They only ship on line.Overall worth the trip.

Santa Monica Blvd store. Good selection of foreign brews and west coast micros. Saw some of Alesmithís big ones in there, as well as Stone, Alaskan, Ballast Point, and more. The atmosphere feels like shopping at Costco, which is kind of novel for a liquor store. One objection: due to the lack of rare and uncommon beers, it is possible that BevMo doesnít exhibit enough of a discriminating eye when buying from distributors. For instance, if you were to go in there looking for a specific handful of brews from Cali brewers in the area, you would be hard pressed to consistently find any of them here.

Van Nuys location. Big store, plenty of macros and non-Knowledgable staff. The guy working up front didnít know what Cassis was when an older gentleman walked in (I had to describe what it was to a detailed point where another employee understood what it was). Selection is pretty basic. No small singles, but plenty of 750s. Some beers that are somewhat hard to get in other LA beer stores: Rodenbach Grand Cru, Alaskan Brewing beers, Tom Hardy, Maui Brewing. I was on a budget, so I only grabbed a 2007 bottle of Alaskan Smoked Porter. Will probably return to pick up some Maui Coconut Porter and Anchor Small Beer (which I havenít had yet, or seen in stores before).

For a chain store they do a pretty good job. They dont sell singles of the 12 oz. brews which sucks. Service is iffy and varies greatly store to store. As for food they do sell a nice selection of cheese but thats about it besides chips,nuts etc.

Much like Total Wine, these are big box stores, packed to the brim with alcohol. Know nothing staff, great selection and prices.
