Since I was in the area for a work trip, I figured I would drop La Bodega, seeing as the reviews here were very favorable. Needless to say, I was extremely impressed. Great selection of locals and imports here (plenty of stuff that, obviously, isn't available back in Georgia). I was greeted when I walked in and took my time to peruse the selection...no pressure. After one of the ladies (probably Kim) saw that I was having difficulty deciding, she offered some help...and as always, I asked about local brews, rare beers, and unusual stuff. I was very impressed with the response and suggestions that I received considering that I am from (way) out of state. I ended up picking up a Heretic Evil Cousin and an AleSmith Decadence (one recommendation and one beer that I have wanted to try). Either way, it was a massive selection.

Anyway, I truly enjoyed my visit to La Bodega and if i ever make it back to Riverside, I will certainly stop in again.

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!
