This is a fantastic beer store. I have to drive about 30 miles to get there but it is well worth it. I always find something new and exciting and the staff is extremely helpful and knowledgable. My new home away from home.

Holy cow! Iím able to get Pliney sent to me in Georgia. Great service...these folks called me several times to update me on whether or not the Pliney arrived and had some other great suggestions for west coast IPAs. I did some damage but am thrilled with my order!

Iíve been here many times. Classy feel to it, especially if you go downstairs to check out the wine. The beer selection is top notch. The last time I was there they put almost all the beer in the walk-in cooler. They did keep some cases of recently released beers outside of the cooler, and it seemed like they were still moving things around so next time I stop by I will update. Plenty of glasses too. Service is great. Just a great place to get awesome beer, and if you visit, do go downstairs and check out their setup.

Great store. Much better selection that we get out in AZ so itís always a treat to see whatís new. Service is knowledgeable and excellent. Jordan is the man! He knows his stuff and can always point you in the right direction if you are looking for something special. I love this place!

Very large selection of more beers than Iíve seen under one roof. Beer is well stored and there is a walk-in cooler. Service is A+ - if you do not see what you want just ask and the odds are good its just not "out" and down in storage. It would take a lot of time (years?) and money (who knows!?) to try all the beer at this store.

500-800 beer labels. Prices are pretty good. Rare stuff comes in all the time. They age some of the brews. They also work with an importer and get a delivery once or twice a year of stuff that no one else in the country gets. They tag it along with a wine import order. Really good wine selection also. Just improved the beer glassware selection. Iíve seen nothing that comes close to selection in So Cal yet. Maybe 1 or 2 places east coast but thats just because the selection east coast / distribution is so different.

Every year Iíve visited the West Coast Iíve visited this place. Iíve met the owner and the beer manager. Thought they were professional and very helpful. While I do shop at other stores, I go here to get some of the regionís hard to find beers. I will make a note to myself to call before visiting so that they are there (see other comments).
