Been here a few times when in the area. Great selection of brews and they seem to change it up a bit. Nice sized store and I find the staff very helpful and fairly knowledgable. My favorite part is the selection which makes it like a treasure hunt as you peruse the many shelves loaded with great stuff. Beers from all over the country, (of which they can acquire), and they support many locals too. A whole section of Belgians if you're into that sort of thing. They have some floor displays set up with the most recent releases so there's no problem finding them. Prices are reasonable as well.This is a pretty classy shop but the prices dont reflect it. When I see fellow BAs asking for advice for a place to stop when in town, this would be a spot I'd recommend.

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!
