Awesome little store. Especially for LA. Hard to find but I like that. Has a nice smell to it. No macros just high quality micros and nice selection of europian brews. I picked up 2 Alesmith Decadence, RR Temptation, Ballast Point Black Marlin, Hair of the Dog Fred & RR PtE, HOTD Ruth, and a Leviathan Barley Wine. They also had Consencration and Cuvee De Tomme 750’s which I have not seen anywhere else in LA. Even picked up a 12 bottle styro shipper for $6. Great little store with good service. They even had a beer tasting while I was there. Cheers to small stores like this who bring in twice the good beer the BevMo’s do.

Hard to find in industrial area, no sign. Once you get inside it’s a whole other story. Even though the employee was more of a wine guy, he made every effort to answer questions and assist in any way he could. The selection of beers was very good. Great selection of local Cali beers, micros, and imports. If you are into wine and spirits they have an amazing selection. You may end up paying a bit more for theirs beers than some of the other competitors, but you would be lucky to find their selection anywhere else. This place carries zero mass market beers. We took beers home with us on the plane and for a charge, they gave us a great transportation container. Would definitely visit again if in the area.

Truly a great little bottle shop! Should cover you for all your beer, wine and spirtits needs. Tons of scotch and brandy and tequila. Only thing I didn’t see were sakes. The place has 4 different ice ciders which seems to be pretty rare for anywhere outside of Canada and the NE. Some real gems in the beer department too, stuff that is here before anyone else gets it. I will add them to the availability tab. Shop is huge, everyone their is helpful, and the beer buyer seems to know his stuff. Also a bunch of local beers I haven’t seen bottled before. Easy to miss driving by though.

This place is the real deal. They stock nothing but high quality craft beer, and their staff is very knowledgeable. When I went earlier this week, they had just gotten in Cuvee de Tomme and Rasputin XII, both of which were reasonably priced given the product. The interior feels a bit cramped (probably the low ceilings), but with ample room to browse one can’t complain. Another important note: Wade’s Wines keeps their interior temperature closer to cellar temp (or in the 60s at least), which is a welcome change for both the beer freshness and the beer customer. I also heard they do legit tastings on thursdays. I will be back soon!

Visited March 5, 2009. A haven for purists. Over 500 specialty beers with very few supermarket offerings. Definitely a focus on hoppy and belgian styles, but good representation across the board. A strong selection of limited items like Consecration, Angel’s Share, Pliny the Elder, Ten Fiddy, etc. They also have a homebrewer working there who is very knowledgeable. This area needed a shop like this!
