Located right off the freeway, this location has been here for over 30 years. Large warehouse building, a number of checkout lines, and about 1/5 of the store is beer on both shelves and in coolers. Lots of California and Oregon micros.
Quite a decent selection of No. and So. Cal. beers. Little from across the pond. Several Alesmith some Deschutes Etnas others. I found one new one. Six months ago many would have been new. They still had Deschutes 19th Ann. in the cooler.
Grocery store sized liquor store tucked away in a dark parking lot....little leary entering at night. Decent selection of west coast bombers and fairly common imports. Decenlty priced. Service - the clerks had trouble ringing up the order...it was late after all, dude! And we all know what is the number one crop in this area....Anyway - worth a visit if you need to stock up in Redding.
This is a big warehouse type building with beers on the right side of the store. They have lots of room here. The selection is good. Better than BevMo. They have plenty of local and international beers present. I found some Feather River stuff and some unique Mount Shasta stuff. They also have Etna. I also managed to find some Batch #1 Ommegeddon! While this is a score for me, it also should serve as a warning that there may also be old beer here. I saw some Sac Brewing Red Horse Ale on the floor, which has been out of business nearly 6 months. Neverthless, the service was good, as I was asked twice by 2 different employees if I needed any help. Likely the best beer place within a 2 hour driving radius.

I love this place, a booze store the size of a Safeway!!.Tons of beer, a good selection of hard to find collectible decanters. Found the hard to get Green Rooster beer here once.
Nice selection of CA and OR micros, also a few Belgian and German beers. If you are heading north on I-5 it’s the last good beer store till ya hit Oregon.

UPDATED COMMENT: Ok it’s been 6 years since I have rated this place- (Today’s date is July 13, 2012) Wow... Blair has certainly kicked it up several notches when it comes to selection. By far the best in Redding, and in the North State! It’s been nearly 2.5 years since I have visited the store... (Bev Mo is not even 1/2 mile away from my home) but the Liquor Barn’s variety and selcetion blows Bev Mo away! It’s a bit more of a drive but the selection of Belgians is very much worth it.
Good selection in an old building that seems to need a little bit of renovation. Great selection of some of the harder to find brews. I was very surprised to find at least 7 varieties of Alesmith, some Stone and Lagunitas. Definately worth a stop if you’re in the area.
