La Bodega has been a Riverside landmark for years & I make a point of stopping in whenever I go "home." They carry lots of west coast brewers including Ale Smith, Lost Abbey, Stone & Russian River, along with a pretty decent selection of Belgians. The prices aren't bad on the "rarer" brews though you can probably pay less for six packs of many micro-brews at Ralph's or Vons. However, the staff here is very helpful and will special order if possible.
LB also carries a large selection of hard alcohol and wine with tequila being their forte.

Many nice beers, with lots of bottle limits. The prices are on the higher end, but not much competition in Inland Empire distribution area. Pricing has improved from a few years ago. The staff is very helpful, however, the beer lady does not place all the beers on the shelves, she holds limited releases for her 'special customers' and lies about running out of specific beers, to be holding them for friends. Especially annoying when her emails are misleading and state that there will be no holds. It is always worth stopping by when in the area, as they have a nice selection.

Great Spot with many limit 1 selections. Pro on this is you have opportunities to purchase stuff before some dbag buys it all up in 1 shot! Found some goodies, plus you can get on an emailing list and they will let you know when rare stuff is released!

I stopped in at La Bodega recently as I was in the area for business. It's a fairly historic looking spot with an old school vibe inside. The beer area is fairly small compared to the rest of the store, but what the have is absolute quality. They had lots of hard to find bottles and beers I had never even heard of before. They also had a lot of local breweries represented with Hangar 24, Ritual, Packinghouse, Craft, and Black Market bottles for sale. The prices were reasonable for things compared to other SoCal stores. I highly recommend a stop in here if you are in the area, and I know that I will for sure be coming back myself.
