On the south end of Uptown Whittier, but really just a few blocks of walking from the real heart of it (and from where there are a number of other beer places).

It’s a pretty typical looking liquor store. The beer is in the back of the store and they have a number of cooler doors and a couple of shelves with beers as well. The selection is pretty standard. Plenty of San Diego and Orange County breweries, but stuff from up north like Lagunitas, Tahoe Mountain, etc. Nothing really out of the ordinary, same with the prices.

It’s one of the few places in the area that has a decent selection, so it’s not a bad option. But, it’s not as good as The Cellar up the street.

Interesting place just down the street from the "downtown" area of Greenleaf. I found parking right up front though it’s a green curb so you can’t park here and walk all around town. Inside is a beer section in the back left and if you look up front while in the back of the store you’ll see another room, a wine cave of sorts. I didn’t look through the wines too much but I did scan through all the beers.They have half a dozen fridge doors dedicated to beer and a shelf with singles on it. I was surprised by the prices. Some were average but others were pretty good. They have Bigfoot singles for $2.25, which is cheaper than you’d get them by buying a 4-pack. Some of the goodies: Russian River Blind Pig, Ballast Point Sculpin, AleSmith IPA, and Sierra Nevada Bigfoot. Cool place though I’m not from Whittier so I don’t know how often I’ll stop in.
