Visited several times around the time they opened as they used to get Russian River bottles and had no limits. Nice place but pretty much like any other Total Wine. I love the fact that they do singles and have better prices than other places. Another plus is that since this isnt as heavily traveled stuff lasts a bit longer.
In the past couple years they’ve started raising prices to be more in line with other stores and they hide the Pliny in the back like other places. Oh well, still a good place.
(Visited 01/2013): This Total Wine location is at Foothill Crossing right off I-15. There is a large parking lot in front.
The interior is spacious, with the beer in the rear of the store. The majority is on shelves segmented by region and style. Singles are available as well.
As far as selection, California is well-represented with offerings from Alesmith, The Bruery, Firestone, Russian River, Hangar 24 and many more. Other domestic craft breweries as well as imports are stocked as well.
Service is pretty standard for this type of store. Someone on the floor asked me if I needed anything, and checkout was friendly.
All in all Total Wine is usually a solid bet for me to grab something from the west coast on my trips out there. Worth a visit.
Your typical Total Wine, huge selection, mostly 6-packs, but loads of singles available. Good thing about Total Wine in this area is distribution: Alesmith, Russian River, Port Brewing, Lost Abbey. You can usually find Pliny the Elder in the fridge section. All the prices are excellent, probably the cheapest Speedway Stout and Old Viscosity in the world. Russian River sours were still pricey in the 375mL bottles. Staff when I was there was well aware of their Russian River stock and when new shipments would be arriving.
Decent bottle shop. Beer a bit haphazardly arranged by style, so finding the offerings from any single brewery is difficult. The "new and seasonal" shelf also presented difficulty in finding what I was looking for, which turned out to be in a floor display in the front of the store away from all the rest of the beer. Spent a lot longer there just trying to find beers than was really necessary. Prices are what you’d expect to pay anywhere else.
Awesome place. WIsh it had been there when I was traveling weekly to ONT. Really well-done interior and layout. Basically - a whole double-sided aisle of Cali and Belgian singles/bombers, with mix-a-6 and another half-aisle of other regions singles. Plus the standard coolers for multi-packs cold and another aisle of same warm. Had all the California standards. Beats the nearby BevMo by a long way. Will be a regular pitstop when I travel to the area.
Typical TWM decor with alies of beers in style guidelines. Local brews with standard imported styles. Great seasonal selection off to its own area.

Been here twice now and it’s always a fun trip. Great selection, singles and great prices in a very nicely setup store. I only come for the beer and I haven’t even looked at anything else, but they have a shit load of wine and spirits that I will need to checkout one day.
This store just opened up a few weeks ago near me. The building used to be an old CompUSA and they turned it into a wine/beer liquor superstore. Its probably at least double the size of BevMo across the street. When I went to the beer section I was totally blown away as to the stuff they had. They had tons of Temptation and Consecration in two separate locations on the shelf. They also had some Black Butte XXI and some Brew Dog stuff. Their prices are incredibly low. I’m talking dollars per bottle cheaper than BevMo. They also have single 12oz. bottles for sale in order to mix and match your six packs. Really cool place and the people were really good to talk to about beer. I will be going back here soon.
