Small, unassuming store next to the Pomona Fairplex (and a half decent Mexican restaurant). The beers are pretty much exclusively stored in coolers, which is nice. Pretty decent selection, mostly of local (Southern) California beers. The usual suspects are here with perhaps a find or two mixed in. Itís not the most amazing selection around, but certainly some good stuff available.

Sketch looking store next to a Mexican restaurant. Has a ídrive thruí type of bizarre parking in front and a few parking spots off to the side. Inside is a normal convenience store but in the circumference of coolers lies quite the nice beer selection: was able to find Hangar 24 Pugachevís Cobra and few older Stone collaboration 12ozís that are long retired. Other than that, some Belgians, Unibroue, Hangar 24, not much local beer. For California, the selection was mediocre, but I did find Bud Light Chelada Extra Lime and Schlitz High Gravity VSL wales. Didnít get any service. The place has like a dozen alarms so must get robbed a lot. Price for the Pugachevís was $25, which isnít cheap. Other prices seemed fine but freshness is suspect.

Solid selection in a pretty large store. Decent mixture of local stuff and some tidbits from the usual international beer countries. Worth a look.

Owned by George, the guy that owns Lonehill Liquor, Walnut Liquorette, Jug and Jigger and a few others. Consequently the selection is similar, just not as good at this location. I do appreciate being able to walk down the street and get an AleSmith IPA or a Beersel Oude Gueuze whenever I want but Iíd like to see a slightly larger selection.
Next door to El Merendero, across the street from Socal Homebrew (formerly Vanguard Homebrew), and around the corner from La Verne Brewing.
