Visiting my brother in Manhattan Beach from Saint Louis. Found this gem on ratebeer and decided I had to make the drive. Well worth it! Small liquor store out in the middle of nowhere. Donít judge a book by itís cover! Immediately greeted by Jazz, the beer man making the orders. He was very helpful, but not overbearing, allowing me to browse for well over an hour. Huge and varied selection of heavy beers on the shelves, many of which I had never seen before. Lighter and hoppier beers were appropriately kept in the refrigerated section across the aisle. Fantastic selection of local CA beers and stuff that was definitely ordered special. Obvious that they know their beers. Jazz was kind enough to hook me up with some smaller batch items from the back and even some from his own personal stash (probably because I had quite the haul.) Definitely will be going back next time Iím out this way.
this place is amazing! had never heard about it until ZEBEERGUY metioned it to me for hard to find bottles. Found TAPS Remy amazing stout that JAZZ has a huge hand in the BA Process. cant wait til im back in cali again it will be one of my 1st stops.
Amazing selection. Get to know to Jazz, he gets the rarest of rare selections available in SoCal and beyond! This is the best beer store in Riverside County. FYI. Jazz posts all of his incoming beers on instagram/facebook.
The best liquor store in i. e.....they have everything - they have all the hard to find, limited stuff that bevmo or other store that dont get. great selection of west coast beers, imports, belgians , . awsome prices. Plus, they have a wonderful selection of Tequilas, and whiskeys. The staff is friendly and know their beer. The store is clean and easily accessible. Dont forget ask what they have in the back!
Jazz runs the best Craftbeer store in SoCal and maybe the best in California. IMO Great selection, Great prices and the man knows everything about beer. Also, the whiskey section is great with some mighty fine prices.
i canít begin to tell you about how super awesome this place is not to mention jazz is a good friend of mine this is the toyíríus walmart you name it super store i wouldnít be surprised if this place had hard to find pbr and rare Budweiser this would be a rant put you can get Cantillion off the shelf and pappy van winkle 15 20 and family reserve when ever you heart feels like also tell him verble sent you he will laugh and prob tell you to buy something from logsdon
One of the best beer stores Iíve ever visited. Jazz runs an incredible shop and will make anyone feel like family.
Make the drive regardless of your origination. I guarantee it will be worth it.
CA goodies and rarities, lambics, Belgians; you name íem, heís got íem. So much goodness I could barely contain myself. Definitely didnít contain my spending.
I suppose the distance from LA proper is part of what allows this store to maintain such an incredible inventory, but whatever the case may be, this is just an outstanding place to buy outstanding beer.
Note: donít make the mistake I did and spend too much time looking in his personal stash. Just like I guaranteed you wonít be disappointed, I guarantee even more strongly that you will leave feeling like your cellar is highly inadequate if you gaze through those glass doors too long.
It is worth the drive to Corona for this place. It is My Favorite bottle shop, Hands down. I never leave this place disappointed. The owner Jazz is passionate about his beer and always has really great stuff.

Had to see what the fuss was about, and yes, it is really that good. Staff was knowledgable and friendly, beer selection was impressive including a lot of 99 and 100 pointers. Kind of a dump, but the best places usually are.
