Online order. Website can be a little dicey at times. Communication can be spotty too. That said, they have a nice selection on a regular basis including some semi-regular cellar sales for some rarer stuff. Prices are pretty good and shipping is fast. Worth keeping an eye on.

Well where should i start... This is one of those places that has no idea what they are doing, just trying to make money in the beer craze, huge selection of locals and then some, Any seasonal or special release bottles you will never see as they are held for favorites or ass kissers .... If the staff would spend a minute learning about what they are trying to push rather than just get your money they might have something there.... Personally i thought with a name like Craft beer Kings you might be something but its just a huge pile of dusty old crap... Nice Refrigerators but just pain Shelf Turd Kings

I wasnít far from El Monte so I decided to make the trip. This place was easy to spot even though it looks like a typical liquor store. When I went inside, the first thing that struck me was how small this place actually is. However, they do well and I got to walk through that infamous fridge aisle. I wasnít able to find all the beers that I wanted, so I asked and they were behind the counter, which seems consist of, there rarer, new, and expensive bottles. Behind the counter they also have a storage cabinet where there hiding all there fucking walez man! Actually Iím not sure what they have in that cabinet but there hiding bottles there. Either way, I got the beers I was looking for (Prairie beers plus some locals) so I left happy. Great store but I wonít make the trip back here, since its 35 minutes from my house but if im driving on the 10 or 60 I will most likely stop by.

Web order. Site works ok. Couple beers went out while placing order, but quick refund. Extra bottle tossed in to make up for that. Super heavy packaging. Good place to get some not widely distributed So Cal beers. Highly recommended.

Weird parking situation during my visit with the Anheuser-Busch truck taking up most of the parking lot. Figured it out anyway, as you can sort of park in the lot with the car wash. The store is really cramped, but they have a really good selection. The prices on all their beers are pretty standard, so they donít seem to mark things up like other stores with extensive selections. Lots of random imports and some stuff from random/obscure SoCal breweries. Really a good selection to choose from. Didnít interact too much with the staff, but they seemed pretty friendly. When I went to pay, it looked like they had some more beers behind the counter, but it was hard to see through the stickers, ads, and bullet proof glass (is that really necessary in El Monte?).

Finally got in here. I mean, itís on the way to Stuffed Sandwich for me and I see that guy Moe at all the bottle shares talking up his liquor store, so it was about time that I got in here to check it out. All thoughts on Moe aside the place is pretty cool. They have a whole aisle of beer fridges (both sides) and some shelves of beer in the next aisle which are encroaching on the food stuff. From everything Iíve heard they keep some of the popular stuff in the back (like the Cantillon or the semi-legitimately sold Bruery specials) but Iím not interested in kissing ass to get a bottle of Cantillon gueuze so I didnít ask. That said, Iím sure they take care of the loyal customers. Personally I couldnít find much rhyme or reason to how things were organized but it made for an entertaining walk down through the beer section. I picked up some hoppy beers for a friend and a St Bernardus 12 for myself. They have tons of CA beers to pick from as well as a good number of imports. I love the fact that I can get all the Rocheforts here and St Bernardus in addition to a bunch of overpriced Mikkeller ticks. On that note, the prices are actually pretty good here. For most things theyíre exactly $1 less than youíd find anywhere else.

The service is pretty good. Itís a family run operation and they all go to the bottle shares and schmooze. Over all the selection was good, and it may be better if I could see what was hidden in the back (or on the shelves behind the bullet proof glass over the counter) but certainly for the area itís the best youíre going to find.
