This is a quality add (and I mean that very sarcastically to whoever added this). I had to check the map to make sure the address really was in Riverside. Itís way down south east near the March air base in a weird corner of Riverside where the borders go all over the place. I drove 15 minutes (and went only three milesÖ) from the new Bevmo up the way for this? I might as well drive another five miles and go to Kat Daddy and get some more bad beer. Meh. Now Iíll admit that this is the best selection of beer in an Albertsons that Iíve seen (save for the one in San Dimas that has Chimay Blue) but this is sad. They have several doors of macros, a single door of some better stuff but just the most common breweries like Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams, New Belgium, and Hangar 24. There is another door that has Shocktop, Widmer, and Red Hook as well as what I presume are the house brands like RJ Wing Walker and Metolius. Then there is a small fridge at the end of the aisle that has singles in it and a sign that advertises that you can build your own six pack. With the exception of Lagunitas IPA (which probably was in the other fridge somewhere) it was all singles from six packs in the other fridges.
Maybe if I lived in the area I might stop in for a sixer of Lagunitas IPA from time to time but more likely I would just drive down I-15 to El Cerrito.
