4.45/5  rDev -2%

Located in a Costa Mesa neighborhood

Beer is located in the pack in a large refrigerated room along with 8 different fridges outside of that

Super cheap and can buy singles out of six packs

Found some nice gems here, Avery Czar, Flying Dog Woodie Creek, Firestone Walker Reserve, Bornem Double, and Flying Dog Horn Dog barleywine

Only spent 28 dollars on 10 different beers, some were 22 ouncers too

Nice selection of glasses

Very helpful workers

Could have spent a lot more money here and I probably will if I make it back there soon

Popped in here while on vacation at the recommendation of some family members and was not let down! Wish I would have checked the reviews prior to visiting though, so I would have known that I could have broken up 4/6 packs... next time. Great selection in the cooler for someone coming from the East Coast, didn't even bother asking to check "the back". Got into a great conversation with Trayce, who was friendly and very knowledgeable. Will visit again when I'm back in town for sure.

This spot is perfect to grab some good brew or some quality food/liquor or even cigars. Their beer selection is high quality and they have an entire walking in chilled room with a great selection of beer. All the times that I've been in the employees are extremely helpful, and one employee really helped me out with my home kegerator issues and answered all my dumb questions with eagerness and genuine concern for me getting the keg flowing correctly.

Definitely recommend if you are in the newport area/costa mesa area and need a quality spot to stock up on beer.

Great place that I would highly recommend to anyone in the surrounding area - very accessible from the 55 fwy.

Service was good, but not overly pushy/hovering. They have a great selection of glassware.

Most importantly, the beer! Big wall of coolers and a crazily-stocked walk-in that is loaded with domestic and imports. Also, being able to break into 4s or 6ers to purchase a single is a fun twist and lets you try new stuff that would only be offered in 6 packs elsewhere.

Great store...I'll be back!
