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.

It is worth the drive to Corona for this place. It is My Favorite bottle shop, Hands down. I never leave this place disappointed. The owner Jazz is passionate about his beer and always has really great stuff.

Had to see what the fuss was about, and yes, it is really that good. Staff was knowledgable and friendly, beer selection was impressive including a lot of 99 and 100 pointers. Kind of a dump, but the best places usually are.

I found out about this place through Facebook. Talked to Jazz and placed an order before visiting the West Coast. He is very knowledgeable and did an excellent job getting my beer order and even found some really hard to get/impossible to find beers. Beers were stored in optimum conditions; store was very comfortable. This is the only store I’ve given a 10 in service and the highest total score. Great job and congrats! You deserve it. I’ll be back next year!

What an awesome place. Looks kind of like any liquor store from the outside, but once inside it is very nice and well organized. Service was top notch, Jazz spotted me checking out some beers and we talked for a while, he brought a few nice beers out of the back for me. He also suggested some great local beers. Selection was very good, lots of variety and some really rare offerings. Value was pretty good on most of the regular beers but the some of the higher end beers seemed a bit high compared to other places. Overall a great beer store, go out of your way to check it out.

Unsuspecting place that rolls deep. Jazz has stocked the shelves well and is very helpful. Be sure to check out his bottle collection! Excellent selection of domestics, like Jester King, that I didn’t even think got this far west as well as a solid offering of imports. Well worth the excursion if you’re in the IE.

This is a fantastic place. I went today for the first time, and their selection and pricing are both fantastic. I was very happy to find a wide array of Sours which is difficult to find on the west coast. The owner is a great guy. This place is loaded with rarity, definitely going to stop by at list once a month. also ask the owner if he has any thing in the back like Cantillons.

Don’t judge a book by its cover; this little liquor store has the best beer selections in town. Jazz is as much a beer lover as anyone coming to this site and it shows. Highly recommend swinging by.
