One word, awesome! Sam and Marlene are LAís craft beer spot and original. Sam has been ill for a while so call before you drive there. Food is great, owners are the friendliest people youíll ever meet. Every beer imaginable, I mean everything plus some vintage stuff.

My oh my, this is beer heaven!! The list is mile-long and there is a lot more hidden in the cellar. Besides all the bottles they have plenty of hidden draught-treasures in the cellar that they take out from time to time!!! The food is good too and Sam and his wife are the nicest people!! If you are anywhere near the north american continent you have to go to this place!!! One example is that they have about 20 different years of the Anchor X-mas ales stored! I bet you canít find that anywhere else in the world...!!

No itís not the best deli youíve ever been to, no they donít (always) have hyper-limited stuff or anything you canít get from a good distributor... this year. But Sam and his wife A) are one-of-a-kind cats and B) keep their beer FOREVER. You can easily walk in any day of the week and find ten-year-old beers: Rogue, Gouden Carolus, Stone that Iíve had, and any number of Belgians that I havenít. The only place in LA certainly where you can look at the glass and get a real sense of beer history. Absolutely a top-ten place in the US to sit down and have a craft beer. And every time you go, there WILL be something new. Even if you go twice a month or more. Sam Sam invented retail cellaring in this country and that is a plain old fact. This bottle list is the closest you will get to Kulminator on this side of the Atlantic.

There is no place that Iíd rather have lunch at than at than the Stuffed Sandwich. Sam and Marlene are great people, and if he likes you, he will hook you up. The ambiance, the attitude, and the beer are all phenomenal. If you like hot food, order the Polish Sausage sandwich, itís damn hot and tasty as well. Bring your own glass or youíll be drinking out of a Dixie Cup.

We visited this unbelievable place the first time 1st of May 2014. We were so sorry to hear that the owner Sam passed away this January. He can be very proud of his achievements ! The Stuffed Sandwich was founded almost 40 years ago in 1976 and was one of the first places in LA to focus on good beer. You feel the history when entering the restaurant. The beer selection is amazing, many Belgium beers, but also beers from all over Europe and the US. They even had Granit Bock from Hofstettner and Rieder Pils (both from Austria and of course they had two different Samichlaus)! No mainstream, a very distinctive sortiment. We were very welcome in this place. The sandwiches were so tasty. The interior and the collection of beer souvenirs has grown over the years, you just feel the history and the beer enthusiasm. What else should I say, absolute MUST visit when you are in LA.

The premier vintage beer store on the west coast. The coolers are stocked with all kinds of goodies but the real treasures arent on display. Sam keeps them in the back and the only way you will even know about them is to talk shop with the owner. As mentioned you have to buy food and I suggest the pastrami.The paper cup thing does suck but my understanding is that they encourage you to bring your own. Or you can buy one from the extensive collection and use it. Its also a good idea to go often as you never know what will be for sale. 95 Boon Marriage Parfait that has been perfectly cellared. 15 year old Bigfoots,1988 Samis,87 Foghorns,80's vintage Thomas Hardys and on and on. IN conclusion, this is a must visit for anyone in the greater LA area! Sam and his wonderful wife Marlene are two of the nicest(and knowledgeable) people you will ever meet.

This is the one place I had to make on my West Coast trip. I was not dissapointed. 5 vintages of Anchor X-Mas on tap. Had a 1998 Youngís Winter Ale. I bought a 6 year vintage Big Foot 6 pack, 6 different Anchor vintages in bottles and rare Stone bottles to take home with me They owners were very friendly and talked to me for the entire time I was there. Great recommendations as well. Huge sandwiches. You have to go here if in the area.....

I donít care what anyone says about this place, but it is a pilgrimage for anyone who seeks good ale. While it does has its quarks, I cant think of a better place to share/enjoy a hard to find or vintage beer. This was my second time (went last year) visiting, and while Sam is a character, he is the best type of character there is. The tap selection is top notch for the limited, but always rotating (8-10 taps) but you donít go here for the taps.....its all about the bottles and what more can be said ohhh the bottles. On a good day, there are great gems to be had. I enjoyed a nice 87 Hardyís and a sublime 93 Sami, where else in the world can one get these beers. To top it off me and my buddy enjoyed some great sandwiches (try the pastrami or corn beef). Even my non beer friends are blown away by the SS food and beer. IMHO the best place for beer (or sandwiches) I have ever been in CA, and I try to get around to see the places.
