Large store on the corner. Some parking in the lot but it can be a challenge at busy times. Pretty solid selection of beers, most non-refrigerated but some in coolers along the wall. Organized by country of origin for the most part. I was able to find a beer on my wants, as well as a new country tick. Prices seem a bit high to me. The tasting bar was indeed a nice touch, but it was doing a wine thing when I was there. Glad to hear that there are beer events as well. Recommended.
Wow, by far my favorite bottle shop ever. Think of any great beer other than the Westvelterns, and they have it. They have Milkker (7 different ones), De Dolle, Struise, Hair of the Dog, Cantillon, Rochefort, Full Alesmith, every Lost Abbey, Pizza Oirtm Ballast Point, Green Flash, every J.W. Lees, Ola Dubh, Nogne (8 different ones), Stone, amazing German and Scottish beers that I have never seen, Rodenbach and a great sour collection, Kuhnhenn, Russain River, EKU, Ølfabrikken, 3 Fonteinen, the list goes on. They have tons of Mead as well, and litterally, every style of Sake on ratebeer (trust me I have a bottle of every style). The Sake and Mead is very expensive, but the beers are reasonable. I picked up a 1998 Koshu, Cantillion Iris 2004 (haven’t had an unblended before), De Dolle Stille Nacht, a Kellerbier (which they had 6 different types of), and Struise Pannepøt. Great place, will return, could have easily bought over 200 bottles if I had the budget or the car to get all of those home.
Average size store. Made the drive from Agoura Hills expecting a great store and was a little disapointed. They did have a nice selection of imports and local brews but they were missing a lot of other regional brews I thought were going to be there. No Alesmith Summer Yulesmith or Pliney the Elder but they did have Winter Yulesmith which was wierd. I picked up RR Temptation, Anderson Valley 20th Anniv, Roots Organic Woody IPA, and Alesmith X. They did have GI BCS which I thought was pretty crazy. I thought Wade’s Wines was the better store. Just was not worth the drive for me.
Great store with friendly staff. A big selection of Californian micros, which was good for me, and a good looking range of German, Belgian and UK beers which is probably more exciting for local drinkers?? I bought some Stone, Alesmith, Ballast Point amongst others, and it was well worth the drive out from where I was staying, near Silver Lake.
One of the most diverse beer selections I have ever seen. I spent over hour in here and still am sure I missed some awesome beer. I just wish I had more room in my bags so I could have bought more. Prices were reasonable and staff was very helpful.
When I lived here I worked at Universal Studio and this was right next to there. i would stop here always to get my beer, whiskey, and cigar needs. I miss that kind of one stop shopping here in NY that is 3 stops. Anyways there was a guy there named Scotland who knew a shitload about whiskey and beer my two favorite topics. they had lots of good beer indeed. I remember first beer i bought here was Victory Storm King.

I stumbled in here not during my first two years living here, but on my way through town going to San Fran two weeks ago. HOLY. LORD. Between Lone Hill and this place, you have your domestic and European bases totes covered. This place does work on things like t Smisje, Westmalle, Fantome, but also things like Cascade. First place I saw the 750s of CdT. Fair prices, especially for the location.
location is on a busy corner next to the highway, smallish parking lot. Big cooler of locals and belgians, great selection of bombers for out of towners. Got some anchorage, midnight sun, knee deep, hotd.
