Nice bottle shop that happened to be really close to our hotel in Long Beach. All beers are in fridges, there is even a cooling room for the more expensive bottles. Good selection, but it felt a bit pricy. Good bargain though to be able to get six bottles of your choice for 10 dollars.
Une excellente option dans Long Beach avec quantité et qualité. Le staff/owner est dégourdi et ne snob pas les questions.

Large bottle shop with almost all beer in fridges. Good organization. Staff was friendly and did offer to help me 2-3 times. The problem here is the pricing was just jaw dropping for some stuff. Random +$2 on just about every bottle I saw. Didn’t see anything I had to have to scrolled past.
Tiny store with great personality, first person wasn’t so friendly but second with hat knew his stuff and very helpful. Great selection but no Russian river at the time(7/6). Will be back for other great SoCal finds.
A somewhat smaller shop than I expected. Easy street parking. 90% of the beer is in coolers. Quite an impressive selection with a lot of locals plus a good variety of imports that I have not seen (italian and a few others). Everything about this store is concise from beer to whiskey selection (look behind the cash register). Definitely one of the better beer stores in the area. Prices are average to a bit high.
Fairly unassuming beer shop just south of 405. Much larger selection than expected, particularly a lot of imports, which you don’t necessarily see a lot in Southern California. Prices are pretty much on par with what you would expect. The woman who rang me up was friendly, too. Not super close, but convenient enough. I’ll stop in when I can.

Great to have another spot within 5 miles of the house. Very helpful staff that will answer all your questions. They keep you updated on Facebook with new arrivals.

Fantastic selection and selection, Danny is top notch and will try to get you what you want. Clean and well organized and dominates the area. Wish they had the citra from kern but did get a sample from kern.

Nice looking place and easy to spot with there sign. No walls in the front just glass so you can see everything. This place is kept nice and almost everything is kept in the fridge except for some porters and stouts. Nice glaasware to btw. Good selections of brews the only bad thing some of there stuff like Parabola will be gone in a couple of hours. Possibly cause they also have a facebook where they would post there new big brews. Prices are maybe like a dollar more then bevmo. But there not too bad. The service is excellent, it is easy to tell that the ppl that run the place love craft beer and they know there stuff very well. I will see other customers talking to them like if there buds, maybe thery are? I talk to the guys and there very friendly. One of the workers told me that this place is a working progress. Im not completly sure what that means but if it means more beer, right on! This is an awsome spot but they do need some more beer and Im guessing maybe that will happen. They seem to have some space for it. Update 12-20-11 - Yes since my first visit they have gotten more beer including drie fonteinen I always leave happy except that one time when they told me "nope just sold the last Exponential Hoppiness" I almost cried. lol. awsome store.
So Glad to have another place in Long Beach. Good back wall coolers full of a very good selection of craft and imports.
Owner was on the phone with his beer vendor telling him he’d take all he can get...will have no problem selling it all. They had at least 6 bottles of "Infinium" on the shelf...$19+ very competitive.
Good selection overall, not much to add the others have not mentioned.
Price’s are reasonable. Mix and match area to build your own 6 packs are very well priced. I bit farther from Calif Heights liquor for me. But, some selections here are worth dropping in for from time to time to purchase.
