A simply outstanding beer store. This place is close to my in-laws so I checked it out during my last trip south. The reviews on BA led me to believe that it would be top notch and it did not disappoint. A huge selection of imports and American crafts but the best thing about this place is that it is almost all kept in a huge walk-in cooler. I tested their customer service only once by asking whether or not they had any Alesmith Speedway. The guy checked and said that they were out. It would have been nice if he offered to check to see when they got anymore in. The selection is outstanding and is probably why most people come here. The stock looks like it is also rotated very quickly so combined with the cooler you can almost be guaranteed that your beer is fresh. I highly recommed this store, one of the top 3 beer store in which I have visited.

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!
