Essentially a one-room destination with upright coolers lining the north and south walls. All the beer is in the coolers. The middle of the room has standing-height tables where you can drink the beer you buy. I haven't done this yet, as the tap list next door keeps my thirst well taken care of, but it is nice to have the option. On the service, side, typically there is just a cashier manning the joint, who I am sure could help, but has a priority of just ringing up the other customers.

The selection is great, but this is not place to come to buy a few six packs. This is where you come when you are looking for some nice bottles. Lots of high end selections, both domestic and from abroad. I have found more Belgian lambic varieties here than anywhere else in SoCal. They had also received a shipment of Baladin Xyauyu one time I was there. Prices can fluctuate a bit, some brews I seem a little overpriced, but then other items seem like a real good value. The only problem is with the selection here it is hard to walk out without spending a good chunk of change.

This would be a great Bottle shop on its own, but combine it with the Pizza Port located next door and it is a match made in heaven. Great selection, and awesome outside area to enjoy a few brews with your food from next door.

I don't know what I would do without this place. My man Chris has never let me down on a good recommendation no matter what I was looking to get into. A great selection in a great spot. First lead into Stillwater, Jolly Pumpkin, Pliny, Logsdon, Mad River, Knee Deep,the selection is enormous!

I decided to walk over here while we were waiting for our pizza next door. Atmosphere was decent, one or two people milling around looking at bottles but other than that it is a typical bottle shop. Quality was pretty good. I didn't see any out of date bottles and they had some nice glasses but the space seemed a little rough around the edges. Service was good, typical "do you need any help," but I was just browsing. Selection was solid, lots of different beers from all over the world with plenty of local options represented as well. I did see a few bottles I would be interested in but the prices were a bit high for my tastes so I passed on them. Overall a nice bottle shop, definitely worth the stop if you are going to Pizza Port but I wouldn't go out of my way to stop in.
