For California craft beer lovers this is a liquor store with a bonus.

A large space which is very clean and properly attended to. It has all of the items one should expect from a quality liquor store. A healthy selection of fine wines and spirits. A certain amount of food, a variety of glasses and necessary drinking accessories. A great selection of beer. They have plenty of west coast craft beer and a very nice selection of imports from Belgium, England, Germany, Canada and a few others.

What gives Lone Hill a bonus is that they go out of their way to get American craft beer from the mid west and the east coast. They get beers from Great Divide, Three Floyd's, Victory, Great Lakes, Bell's, and Dogfish Head . Maybe even a few other breweries. A variety from each as well. In fact if Lone Hill did not have these beers I don't think they would warrant a five rating. If you do not live in the area, then there would not be any special reason to go here. If you do live in the area. Lucky bugger.

I am sure the shipping for these beers comes at a hefty cost and this cost is then given to the consumer. These beers are priced very high and if you are not willing to loosen up your wallet the trip will not be worth it if you are travelling a long distance. Many consumers of these beers will not mind the expense, but if you are on a tight budget you might want to stay clear, lest you lose your mind and drop the credit card. I give the establishment an 'a bit pricey,' because the beers from the west coast and the imports seem priced in the proper range and not over priced.

I have to commend the service. After my purchase I was given a free bottle of Unibroue. The man and the woman who helped me during my visit were very friendly and if you live in the area this is a quality establishment to visit whether or not they can offer beers from parts of the country most other liquor stores do not.

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.

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.
