Staff is pretty good. Mostly a wine store, but great selection of beer and various alcohols. The staff is always willing to ask questions if they do not know the answer to, and still willing to learn. The staff really knows their wine and tries to get a great selection of beer. Asking about specific beers can get a special order if you are really nice.
Visited on 7th July 2014. Very helpful staff, they searched their database looking for my list of beers and ’unrated States’ I took in with me. The shelves are arranged in style order rather than breweries and this led to a lot of leg miles as we tried to find the beers I wanted. Huge selection of beers but they did not have many on my two want lists. I still managed to spend over $100 on beer though. I have no idea if the prices are keen or not, but as a visiting Brit it seemed OK. Two new States for me, South Carolina and New Mexico, will be up to 31 once I drink those two. Overall a good experience and the sort of store I hoped to find during my Orange County holiday.
an awesome shop that you would never know was there unless you were looking for it. it looks like an old cvs or something and has more beer than any store i have seen. however there isnt a great sense of organization and you easily are lost. The do have some of the best breweries available dogfish, sierra nevada, cigar city etc. friendly staff as well.
Located in a clean upscale shopping center in Orange County. Lots of beers to pick from including some interesting selections and some popular selections. They’re learning the ropes and are cashing in on beer nerd’s craze and stupidity.
Finding an employee wandering the aisles here can be difficult and while they arent the most knowledgeable about beer they seem to be willing to learn and will have a conversation with you.
My only real complaint is that they put all their IPAs out on the shelf under the lights.
Low prices as always. Will return if I need something and I’m in the area but the one in Brea is closer to me.
Nice looking store with a pretty darn good selection. They must use a chain based distributor, because they have stuff I haven’t seen elsewhere on the west coast - RJ Rockers, etc. Prices are good, not great, and don’t expect to land a whale here, but its a good place to shop.
Looks just like a Total Wine elsewhere with the great selection and singles they all normally have. I was really suprised to see some of the beers that get out here now. Lots of east coast and midwest stuff you dont expect. Prices are decent
I went to Whole Foods so I figured I would stop here as well as it’s just back on the other side of the 5.
Large warehouse type store, tons of liquor and wine to go along with two aisles of beer. Pretty good selection of six-packs on one aisle, but the singles aisle is where this place really shines. I ended up getting way more than I anticipated buying, Black Butte XXI, Consecration, Lips of Faith Biere De Mars, Ten Fidy, Victory Storm King, and another Old Rasputin XII.
Besides having a pretty impressive selection, the prices here are great. The Consecration was $19 and the OR XII was $18.50, for example. They also had Mirror Mirror for $10.
While they do have a great selection and good prices, the service was definitely lacking. I do not really need much when it comes to buying beer, but the only human interaction I had in the store was answering a question of a family that was also in the beer aisle and then when paying for my items.
Best selection that I have found in the area. Pretty good value. Build your own six packs. I like that I can try singles of beers that are sold in 4-6 packs usually. They also do beer tasting classes but I have never gone to one. Staff is helpful and friendly. Set up nicer and with more selection than BevMo.

Pretty nice place. A step up from BevMo with clean, nicely laid out racks, mostly wine, but a good selection of beers. Much more diverse than BevMo. One of my new favorite places.
Updated rating April 15 - falling in love with this place. Better prices and selection than BevMo. Staff is very helpful if you are unsure as to what you want. Outside of Hi Time Wines, this is the place to go in the OC for beer.
