I've heard good things about this place from my friend Tyler awhile back and completely forgot about it until the other day when my buddy wanted me to take him there. When I first walked in, I thought this was going to be the typical Liquor store...but as I explored more I noticed that this place was a freaking gold mine. He had beers like Dreadnaught, Double Bastard (2006), Decadence, Pliny the Elder, Blind Pig, Southern Tier's brews, and much more (serious, I only scratched the surface here--those where actually some of the purchases--lol). THis place probably had about 30 to 40% of BA's best beers ....simply awesome. Stan...I believe thats his name....was also extremely cool. He actually came up to us and talked about beer and brought out some beers from the back that were pretty rare. I almost don't want to mention this, but I purchased a beer there that is very, very, very highly recommended and is no longer brewed. I won't tell you what it is because I don't want the owner to get bombarded by phone calls...but lets just say they made about 900 or less cases of it. The only knock on this place is probably the prices, but they weren't anything crazy...about a buck more then other places. I simply love this place. And if he wanted to...he could probably sell those beers at twice the amount he's offering now and still have about the same amount of sells...but Stan wouldn't do that. You know how they used to call Stan Musial "Stan the Man"....well thats the owner's nickname now.

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!
