Stopped by this place on the black tuesday release.
Selection was pretty good, nothing amazing, but they had lots of random beer gems sitting around, kind of place you can go to and leave with something you didnt plan on finding. This however is because their prices are terrible. Plan on paying 20% more for beer than most other places, and if you drink it on site plan on paying 50% more.
Got conflicting info on cost to consume on site,
Picked out a handfull of bottles with one to drink there, the great grampa who owns it i assume rang me up. blatantly looking right at the prices on the bottles he rings them all up higher than marked on the tags. I was shocked he was doing it, he must have assumed i was retarded, he then told me it would be $5 to drink the beer on site as I requested (his son had just told me $2 about 3 minutes before that), I shrugged and said "fine", my total was a little under $40, I handed him two twenties, he opened the register, took out two quarters, a penny, and a "no cash value" arcade token and handed them to me and put the $40 in his pocket.
Aside form that we had another cryptic woman give the girls in our party attitude, I overheard the son telling someone how thereís no such thing as too much profit, blah blah blah.
Then, whatever you order gets screamed across the store with the price. This tells me that not only is basic math too hard for these people, but they have no faith in their customers.
Just really a scummy place to go, i am fine with high prices, but keep the crypt keeper off the register and treat your customers a little better.

Great neighborhood beer venue, with a very respectable wall of bottled beers to poke through. What was on tap was top shelf as well, with prices that will put a dent in your wallet. I went out of my way on a business trip to Orange County to find this place and hope to return in the future.

Deli with an exceptional beer selection. Can get a little crowded fighting your way around the tables while picking the bottles you want to buy. Overall a neat place.

Stopped in here yesterday, my first time visiting this place after hearing about it for years. Atmosphere was good. People eating at most of the tables, including some of the ones right in front of the beers I was trying to look at. Service was great. I was asked if I needed help twice and the woman who checked me out could not have been nicer. Quality was great. Food looked top notch, even though I didnít partake this time, and the beers all were high quality offerings. Selection was great. They have a ton of beer packed into a small place. I was able to find two Almanacís I had been searching for so that was a welcome surprise. No food this time but it looked awesome from what I saw. Prices were more than reasonable on most of the bottles I was interested in. Overall a really nice bottle shop that I would definitely return to in the future.

Tucked in the back in a double strip mall, interior is an old school local deli that reeks of deli pickle. Big local crowd here eating at tables and at the bar. You have to sort of invade peopleís privacy to peruse the bottle selection. Separated mostly by country with a lot of Belgian, English, and German stuff. Nothing too hard to find. CA local selection was solid, but again, nothing of note. Organization was scattered. Sort of a "meh" bottle shop that was probably the bomb back in the day but now is average. Didnít eat here. Didnít see any staff for beer. They had a big tap list but I didnít stay for a beer.

I went here for my 21st birthday. First off they congratulated me on turning the golden age and also made me feel welcome. Then everyone in the restaurant sang me a happy birthday and the owner met me and gave me a free brownie.
First beers I HAD? Noble Ale Works El Gringo with Habanero peppers and Port Older Viscosity on tap. This place has a lot of beers I donít see in other stores and their staff is pretty cool.
This place is really growing on me.

This is definitely one of the most unique beer stores I have ever set foot in. Upon first entry, place is a small bustling restaurant with a handful of mostly filled tables. There is a small bar with a couple open seats. Draft beer selection was fantastic, granted, most of them were for the hopheads like myself. Food was even better. Perfect place to stop for lunch, and maybe some casual beer shopping. Selection was very haphazard, but some nice finds on the shelf. It was obvious the owners truly appreciated their beer and made an effort to order nothing but the best. There may have been a few poor choices amongst the shelves, but hey, who doesnít have some crappy beer on their shelves?! Workers were all extraordinary friendly, and made for a very welcomed environment. Disappointed I wonít be able to stop by here more often!

Iíve been here a number of times over the last five years. Sandwiches are great, the Bernie especially. The Bernie is wildly overpriced but excellent. The beers on tap are always top notch and some of the best in OC. Again, wildly overpriced. The beers in the cooler are slightly overpriced but not nearly as bad when you consider you often canít find the beers anywhere else in the area. I still love coming back but canít make it a habit based on the prices.

Cool, old school deli near the Bruery Provisions store. They have a giant open cooler on the side of the store with hundreds of beers as well as a good number of taps. There wasnít anything particularly interesting when I was there, but I thought it was freaking cool that you can get some draft beer at a deli. The bottle selection was very good. They seem to specialize in good German imports. I stocked up on some good dopplebocks and dunkels. I didnít get any food here. Nice place.
