One of the best beer stores around. It’s funny that unless someone told you about it you probably wouldn’t know. It looks like a random liquor store from the outside, but once you walk in and see the crazy selection. Jazz the owner is an awesome person. This is absolutely a must for beer enthusiasts. Shelf’s are loaded with rare beers, if you cant fine it here, then you wont find it anywhere.

An unassuming liquor store on the outside, in the back country of Corona (there are some quality dirt roads nearby). Once inside, quite a revelation, as the beer selection is very strong, with an emphasis on "what’s hot" at the moment, i.e. Prairie suddenly appearing when it blew up. Nice Belgians, including sours, and a lot of 22 oz.’ers in the fridge. A nice feature lately has been bottles from some of the new Temecula/Riverside breweries. The only problem in coming here is you usually can’t get out without dropping a lot of cash money.

Visiting my brother in Manhattan Beach from Saint Louis. Found this gem on ratebeer and decided I had to make the drive. Well worth it! Small liquor store out in the middle of nowhere. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover! Immediately greeted by Jazz, the beer man making the orders. He was very helpful, but not overbearing, allowing me to browse for well over an hour. Huge and varied selection of heavy beers on the shelves, many of which I had never seen before. Lighter and hoppier beers were appropriately kept in the refrigerated section across the aisle. Fantastic selection of local CA beers and stuff that was definitely ordered special. Obvious that they know their beers. Jazz was kind enough to hook me up with some smaller batch items from the back and even some from his own personal stash (probably because I had quite the haul.) Definitely will be going back next time I’m out this way.

Amazing selection. Get to know to Jazz, he gets the rarest of rare selections available in SoCal and beyond! This is the best beer store in Riverside County. FYI. Jazz posts all of his incoming beers on instagram/facebook.

The best liquor store in i. e.....they have everything - they have all the hard to find, limited stuff that bevmo or other store that dont get. great selection of west coast beers, imports, belgians , . awsome prices. Plus, they have a wonderful selection of Tequilas, and whiskeys. The staff is friendly and know their beer. The store is clean and easily accessible. Dont forget ask what they have in the back!

Jazz runs the best Craftbeer store in SoCal and maybe the best in California. IMO Great selection, Great prices and the man knows everything about beer. Also, the whiskey section is great with some mighty fine prices.

One of the best beer stores I’ve ever visited. Jazz runs an incredible shop and will make anyone feel like family. Make the drive regardless of your origination. I guarantee it will be worth it. CA goodies and rarities, lambics, Belgians; you name ’em, he’s got ’em. So much goodness I could barely contain myself. Definitely didn’t contain my spending. I suppose the distance from LA proper is part of what allows this store to maintain such an incredible inventory, but whatever the case may be, this is just an outstanding place to buy outstanding beer. Note: don’t make the mistake I did and spend too much time looking in his personal stash. Just like I guaranteed you won’t be disappointed, I guarantee even more strongly that you will leave feeling like your cellar is highly inadequate if you gaze through those glass doors too long.
