Second stop of the LA area day, right after stopping at Hollingshead's so it had some big shoes to live up to. Upon entering I was left wondering if I was in the right spot. All of the beer is located in the cold fridges on the right side of the store. Spirits are mostly behind the counter and wine is in the middle, they outnumber beer approximately 3:1. Atmosphere was decent. I could feel the guy behind the counters eyes follow me around the store which was a little off putting. Service was much the same, he never once asked if I needed help and my only interaction with him was brief and to the point. Quality was pretty solid. I didn't notice anything our of date so no problems there. Selection was good but nothing amazing. Plenty of national and international brands mixed with the normal regional ones, nothing overly rare or anything like that. Prices were typical for the area. Overall a decent bottle shop but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it again.

Easy to find, packed with a dozen or so shops in a strip mall. Sort of small, with wine taking up the majority of the shelf space. The beers were all in coolers (well done!). I saw most things which were available at Whole Foods or Bevmo, plus a little alpha. Settled on some Still Nacht as I just haven't seen it anywhere else in so long. Prices weren't as high as I expected from previous reviews, actually they were pretty standard for the LA area.
If you're in Glendora then you definitely should stop here and also at the sister establishment (Walnut Liquorette). But if you're in LA proper you might not be well served by the drive, as 99% of what I saw was available elsewhere. Still recommended as a very good beer store though!

This is the best liquor store if found to date. The selection is astounding and Stan is the most helpful liquor store guy I've met. They have more beer coolers than most stores have coolers period. I spent a good twenty minutes just looking at the different beers. I ended up buying my wife's favorite, bootlegger rustic rye, and a bottle of Alaskan smoked porter for myself. When I got to the counter Stan asked if I found what I was looking for. I said yes, I was mainly looking for my wife's beer, and a porter I haven't tried. I also mentioned that I have been looking for Pliny the elder, as I have yet to try it.
To my surprise he said he could help me out with a bottle, and went into the back room. Came back with a bottle and I was on my way. They have an excellent selection of beer, a fair selection of wine and spirits, and a helpful knowledgable beer man.
I would recommend this store to anyone looking for hard to find beers.
They also have a good selection of glassware, and general liquor store snacks and things of that sort
