Been visiting since 2007 or so and not much has changed. Same setup, mostly the same selection (which is a bad thing), and same service. It used to be that they were one of the few places that got Russian River (got some batch 2 and 3 Supplication here as well as some Temptation) but now they get none. I think it has more to do with them not staying on top of the beer stuff. Total Wine just down the way gets it so why cant these guys? The beer they do get doesnt move all that fast which is both good and bad. Good if youíre looking for something that sold out everywhere else but bad for freshness. I dont drink much wine or liquor so I cant comment on that.
Service is usually friendly enough but they dont go out of their way to help you nor do they really know anything about the beer.
Large warehouse space in a little shopping center in Upland. Beer is mostly kept out on the shelves, but there are some coolers in the back (most of the beer in them is BMC stuff, though). Pretty large selection, decent prices for the most part. They also have really good liquor, wine, etc. selections.

Yes this is the one not in Botswana. Out in a strip mall that looks semi abandoned in Upland. Why am I over here? Store is massive, lots of hard to find Scotch, Champagne, other liquor. Beer selection is large, though probably 1/2 imports and about 1/4 California locals. Lots of fridged six packs but still many IPAs unfridged. Found Bruery, Alesmith, Lost Coast Guard Left Coast, North Coast, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Firestone Walker, Napa Smith, Big Sky, Heretic, Laughing Dog. Nothing I havenít seen before. Big selection, nothing special, but $5 bombers of Port Old Viscosity! Best beer there was $12 Speedway Stout.
Iíve ordered from Liquorama a few times and havenít been disappointed by the prices or service. Iíd appreciate a more diverse selection and a more user friendly web-site, but these are only minor complaints. I will use their services again.

Iíve only dealt with them online. They have a decent enough selection to my Florida eyes, but I imagine to a west coaster the selection is old hat. Service has always been very good and they have never substituted on me. The website is very clunky though, that could use improvement.
This is the place I first mail ordered from and had a good experience. They normally have AleSmith brews available, which was my initial attraction. Their web page is a bit awkward, the beer page not super easy to locate in their menu. But, with a decent selection and some hard to get beers, this place is a definite stop in your online beer shopping.
Liquorama is a pretty cool place. They have a pretty good selection. More rare stuff than Bevmo sometimes, it really depends on when you go in. I was there the other day and they had some Mirror Mirror that just came in which was cool. The people that work there are pretty nice as well.
A great place to by hard-to-find beer. Although they donít have the greatest of selections, they generally ship next day and it arrives within a week. For reliability and price, you canít top Liquorama. I try to order from them whenever possible, simply because I know the product will arrive lightning fast.
