A fairly unimpressive beer store, particularly for LA standards, but a pretty good selection for a one mile radius. The beer selection is pretty standard with CA locals, but as I was walking out the cashier stopped me and said he had others in the cooler. I stayed a minute and was greeted with two "rare" beers, not relegated to the shelves, a Deschutes Abyss and Bootleggers Knuckle Sandwich DIPA. He was pretty proud of those two beers and I did not burst his bubble and tell him that Whole Foods had those and many others he did not carry.

Upon first entry, this seems like your typical local liquor store. However, the selection is pretty solid for the area, and the prices are reasonable, given itís location in Hermosa Beach. The workers tend to know their beers, or at least whatís selling off the shelves. They are also more than willing to hook you up with their secrets in the back. MOst surprisingly, I came across a Sam Adams Utopias on two separate occasions when visiting this store. Canít complain about that! Price was a bit steep, but for a beer this rare, not sure an extra $10-20 really makes a difference. Definitely a place worth stopping by if youíre in the are.

Small but fairly good selection. Nothing that really stands out and makes this place a destination. I guess without much else in terms of bottle options in Hermosa, this place will do. Prices seemed okay, I guess. Nothing too egregious, but not cheap, either.

Been here a couple of times. Smaller selection, but some good stuff (750ml) from The Bruery, Firestone, Deschutes, Dogfish Head, Sierra Nevada, Ballast Point and Stone. Both employees Iíve talked to were very friendly.

Nice place with a very nice selection of beer. Lots of cal beers and other stuff from the states and global. Prices are pretty high but I found a couple of jewels. I need to come back here cause I feel like I didnt look aroud to much cause right away I found stuff that I wanted. One complaint besides the prices was that they had sculpin outside the fridge. Theres was like 3 cases sitting at room temperature like thats sad. I wanted to grab a bottle but nope. Its ok to have a stout at room temp but with Ipas, keep em cold...in the fridge specially the good stuff like sculpin.

I was staying right around the corner from this place and just happened to walk in one day. The selection isnít all the big, about 50, but itís all great stuff. I was able to get The Abyss,The Dissident,Jubel 2010,Sofie,Firestone 14 and Pliny. The prices are a little bit high, but itís worth it in my opinion.
