This is a small grocery store with a top selection of beer. The warm bottles tend to be organized by style and the chilled stuff is sorta thown in there. Many of the tags are wrong, in the wrong spot, or old- so make sure you read the tag carefully so the prices don’t surprise you at the register. Prices did tend to be a touch high on most items, and very high on the rarer stuff, but overall I’d say it was about what I expected. Lots of cold packs of cans and bottles. Local and long distance stuff available. This is a very good beer store. Lots of goodies for all tastes (including BMC lovers). Definitely worth a stop.

En plein centre-ville avec une sélection locale et importée assez spectaculaire. Les prix sont un peu plus élevés que la moyenne à SoCal mais c’est possible de récolter des trucs plus difficile ailleurs. Bonne sélection dans les frigo.

Headed over here on a break from the conference, to score some lunch and a few bottles. Food was perfunctory (but a nice break from the greasy fare) but the bottle selection was terrific. Killer assortment of import and domestic craft, with a very strong sours/wilds section and loads of local/West Coast offerings. Grabbed some Modern Times and Firestone, bummed that I couldn’t do more. Fine place for sure.

Rating on an internet order. Good beers. Fast delivery. One mis-description - got De Molen H&V instead of De Molen BA H&V. Got Pliny instead of a Strand witbier. So, a minor disappointment on the H&V. Cost was probably a wash tho. Got some good beers I’m not seeing around my area!

Alright, oddly opened front space showing off all of the produce and such right at the sidewalk in this semi sketchy part of downtown. So I start winding through the short aisles of beer and along the long beer filled cooler. This is another place with a terrific selection. I could go nuts in here. Oh no. There’s a short barleywine aisle. Well that makes it easy, I love this. I grabbed five that are new to me (and sweet baby jesus it is hard to find new barleywines to try) and left behind a few that were close to or over $20 to keep the budget under control. They also have other big well aging styles grouped together. I could easily blow through a bunch of cash here and aside from the empty wallet afterward be happy as hell about the selection. If you’re downtown and already riding the trolley you may as well head over here as it will be worth the trip. God there’s a lot of good stuff here.

Beer shop in a downtown location. Massive selection of beer, lots of US and european breweries. Saw a lot of rare stuff too. quite a few sours. Also was looking for some RR, which I didn’t see on the shelf, when I ask for it they went and got it from the back! *hint* *hint* Overal a pretty damn good beer shop!

Very nice selection, but only staff available was at register. Beers sorted by style, which is a nice touch. Seemed pricey, but it is a downtown location with high end merchandise. Worth a stop (or two).

Parking is a b, even on Sunday. So-so neighborhood. The grocery store is nice enough, it’s clean and the beer is easy to find. The service isn’t great, though, I mean, it’s a bottle shop in a grocery store. I like that most of it is chilled, and the selection is actually extremely good. Value is pretty good, some cheaper local bombers. Overall a solid bottle shop.
