La Bodega is a great place to stock up on stuff that might be unavailable at other places. Since they don't have the same amount of traffic, they tend to have the Stone releases way past the dates that everyone else is out of it. La Bodega is a favorite of mine if I am in the area. I wouldn't go out of my way to go there though...long drive and it's not that amazing.
They have a decent belgian selection, but La Bodega is much more geared to American Craft Beer (see Hopjack13's list) and the standard English/Irish stuff.
Also, was able to find the 3L Stone Double and Oak-Aged Arrogant there for a little more than other locations. Also, was able to get the Sam Adams Triple Bock and some Rogue Ceramics that were not available at the places closer to LA that have more beer traffic.

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.
