Stopped here last night on my back to the Inland Empire from Los Angeles, right next to a Stater Bros. in a big shopping center, walked in and was greeted my a guy named Stan who knew a good amount about beer, told me he has been managing the store for well over two years now, talked to him for close to thirty minutes, he ended going into the back and selling me his last bottle of Ommegeddon after telling him how I wanted to try it, that was the only thing I bought at $12.99, he threw in a free Firestone Union Jack which was cool because I have not been able to try that one yet, beware of the one dollar credit card fee per transaction, not a big deal but people should know if that kind of thing upsets them, big selection with several east coast goodies, some of the brews I remember seeing were Mikkeller Big Worse, Pannepot Old Fisherman's Ale for $6.99, Dogfish Head 60 and 90 Minute IPA, Midas Touch for $6.99, and Golden Era, Three Floyds Alpha King, Behemoth for $23.99, Pride & Joy, and Robert the Bruce, tons of Rogue, Marins, Moylans, Ballast Point, Alesmith, Green Flash, Beer Valley, and Stone, also Great Lakes, Goose Island, Lost Abbey, Founders, and Allagash, prices were a little steep but the fact that those beers are available on the west coast is worth every penny, would not be able to taste have of them otherwise, 3 liter bottle of 10th Anniversary Stone Double IPA was one hundred dollars and the Double Bastard was sixty bucks, selection was very close to Walnut Liquorette, maybe slightly bigger but almost identical products, service could not have been any better, will probably grab some vintages of Bigfoot that he had in the back next time I stop in, will definitely go here again soon, high quality brews that cannot be found at many other places in Southern California, very glad I stopped by, only about forty-five minutes from my apartment

I was always meaning to visit Lone Hill Liquors as I heard good things. This is solid bottle shop.

The location is in a strip mall at Lone Hill Avenue and Route 66. Once you go in, you'll find the wine in the middle of the store and craft beers in coolers to your right. I found the usual suspects you would find at better bottle shops and the prices I found to be on par to tad higher than my regular shops.

For me, the drive is a bit much to shop here on a regular basis, but if you're in the neighborhood, it's a good bottle shop to pick up quality craft beer. I didn't see any rarities, but I also didn't ask if there was anything held in the back.

The Worst liquor store customer service ever! I stopped here on my way to The Bruery after finding it listed here as a good bottle shop. I walked in and they did have a large selection. I was really only looking for sours and found nothing I wanted and the few bottles I checked out were over priced. It seemed like everything here was a couple bucks more than most places. I asked the guy if they had anything from Russian River (since most places like to hide it in the back) and he kinda rolled his eyes and said "I can get you a Pliny". I told him I'm actually looking for anything else besides Pliny. He said they didn't have anything else from RR. He went to go grab it from the back and my girlfriend asked if she could have one and he said no, just one. I asked if we each could have one and again he said no and that I am lucky he is being nice enough to give me one! I was surprised he was being such a dick and told him he's not allowed to NOT sell it to people. He's also not supposed to hide it in the back either. He said if I do that then everyone will tell their friends and they will come in here and all buy one. I said, so what? Do you not want to sell them? Do you want them to get old? Are you keeping them for yourself? Since he didn't give a shit what I said I went up to buy my 1 Pliny and he rang it up, $11!!! I assumed he changed his mind and was going to give us each one but he said no, just 1. It's $9.99 plus tax. I told him I pay less than half of that at whole foods and most places charge around $6. He said good for them. You should buy it from them then. I told him forget it and walked out. Could believe the customer service there. Just cause he has an account with Russian River he thinks he's a big shot or something. We'll see how long he has an account with them when they find out he's hiding, hoarding, and over charging for it.
