A nice bottle shop with an impressive selection of beers. A lot of quality beers crammed into a small site managed to find quite many bottles here that were already sold out elsewhere. I spent way too much here and they even shipped my purchase back home for me, ask for Jazz when you stop by. but definitely worth a stop.

Stopped by today. Donít judge a book by the cover. Although the store is small and cramped, there is a decent selection of microbrews. Lots of beers not available on the east coast. Not too many different beers, and prices a bit high, but worth a stop if youíre in the area. A bit overhyped in my opinion.

The selection was huge, the service friendly and prices affordable. What I was expecting to find was single 12 oz bottles. Unfortunately no American singles, only 6-packs. Well I bought some nice 22 oz bottles. Not necessarily as good as I expected but definitely worth stopping.

31 Jan 2015. looks like a hole in the wall kind of place. i didnít look at their wine and spirits selection. Beer selection is not very big but almost all of it is beer that is to some degree rare. prices might be a tad high but given this is all hard to find it is likely worth it.

Where to start with this place. Does it appear sketchy from the outside, yes. Does there appear to be too much going on around this place for the time of day and week, yes. Will you find plenty of new brews to buy, YES. Inside it has these cherry wood colored shelves that remind me of Texas Liquor in Carlsbad and some of the new shelves put it at Bine & Vine down in Normal Heights. I see lots and lots of fairly organized international offerings including a pleasing array from Mikkeller and To OL where there are easily a dozen I would be happy to buy if I had the money and an easy way to get them home as Iím getting on a plane after this. Ended up grabbing two To OLís and some cool looking local offerings. Big selection that will have me coming back whenever Iím within 30 miles of this place.

Overhyped in my opinion. Some interesting beers but those are quite expensive. Run of the mill stuff is fairly priced. Some areas are unorganized, some broken bottles in the fridge. Place is not nice to look at and there was some very interesting clientele. Semi knowledgeable staff but comes off quite arrogant and pretentious. Would I stop here again when passing through? Yes, Friday was the third time Iíve been now. Would I drive out of my way for it? No.

Stopped in here on the way into town, I had heard amazing things so I was really looking forward to checking it out. Not the most beautiful looking place from the outside but really nice once you get inside. Tons of wine and liquor in the first few isles, beer in the last one. Atmosphere was laid back with lots of people coming and going. Service was solid all around. I was asked if I needed any help and he was nice enough to point out a few things I may have overlooked. Quality and selection were both quite high. I didnít see any out of date beers and they even offer some proper glassware for some of their beers. Selection was really solid. They had everything from the everyday beers of the west coast to some really rare beers I have never seen on a shelf anywhere else but here. Prices were a touch high on the rarer bottles but all of the others were reasonable so I canít knock it too much. Overall probably the best bottle shop I have come across on this trip. I just wish it was a little closer to where we are staying, I would love to go back.

This is the closest I have to a local bottle shop to me besides La Bodega. Jazz is the owner and beer dude and is connected with the bigger craft beer community. Make sure you are following the store on Instagram at http://instagram.com/elcerritoliquor . Find Upright, Cascade, Bruery one-offs, Lost Abbey special releases, De Cam, 3F, Cantillon, Alpine, weird Mikkeller and Evil Twin stuff, Tilquin, De Molen. They have a huge glassware selection as well with some rare but pricey glasses you wonít find anywhere else. Jazz has really hooked it up on numerous occasions so be sure to get in touch with him and start a conversation.

This place is a beer loverís dream! The selection has to be the best in the country. They really care about beer and it shows. Canít say enough about this place. If you are in CA and love beer, you have a home here.

This is the best beer shop Iíve been to in Southern California. Jazz, the owner, is extremely knowledgeable and will help recommend things. Must stop!
