Holy mother of god! This place should be the second home of any beer lover living in the vicinity. Located right off of the 5 freeway in "The Marketplace" shopping center.
Total Wine & More has a great atmosphere and vibe to it. As soon as you walk in you notice the clean, attractive, modern decor that really has a cozy feel to it. The place is spotless and I couldn't find a speck of dust on any of the bottles. The employees I talked to (while not beer geeks) were pretty knowledgeable about the products they sell. Unlike some BevMo's I've been to, you don't have chicken-hawking employees stalking you while you're shopping, making sure you're not stealing anything. They were friendly and let you shop on your own, but were more than willing to answer a question should one come up. I like that!
The selection is fantastic! All of the American micros that you can think of are represented, with almost every brewery's complete lineup in stock. The selection of Belgians is second to none, at least of the stores I've been to in SoCal. But what's best, is the fact that they offer mixer sixers. And we're not just talking about some shabby lineup of singles to choose from, either. Everything from Sierra Nevada to Dogfish, Blue Dot to Flying Dog, Drake's to Allagash, just to name a few. Seriously, the selection is incredible!
But, the selection would mean nothing if it was over-priced. And, um....this place is about as far from over-priced as you can possibly get! These are the best prices that I have ever seen. They had a 750 ML Allagash Curieux for $13.99 for god's sake! Speedway Stout for $8.99, Mirror Mirror for $9.99, six packs of Union Jack for $6.99, four packs of Palo Santo Marron for $11.99, Old Raspy XII for $18.99, and Consecration for $18.99, the list goes on. I thought I had died and went to heaven! This place is as much of a "must-visit bottle shop" as any place in SoCal. I spent $37 dollars here and walked out with so many beers that they wouldn't even fit in my fridge. Cheers to that! Now, be on your way...

As always this place is loaded up with an excellent selection of craft brews. For someone wanting to branch out their tastes this is a good place to start. I wish they had membership cards because I'd be a frequent customer. I can't wait for them to add more stores around the states.

While primarily a wine store, it does have some nice selection of beers. The place is well kept and aesthetically sharp.
While they have some things I haven't seen, there are some things I normally see that aren't here.
Service is fine, a greeting at the door, friendly checkout make it a good experience. Though I was told there was some pliny in the fridge, and not only was there not, but no one was around at the moment to help out.
Selection is really good, but not quite as good on the singles as the Brea location. Strangely enough, they have different stuff at the different stores.
Prices are as good or better most other places, still some things are more, but that is in the minority. Don't forget to sign up for the email, as they send a coupon that gives a dollar off, for EACH beer/4 pack/6 pack you buy over $6.99
Overall, I wish I lived closer to the Brea location, but I am still happy to have this store close by.

wow what a find! this by far is the motherload of not only wine but craft beer too! very easy to get too in the oc area. i love how they sell single bottles of every kind of beer, well not every kind but most of the good stuff. well i went in there last week and picked up a build your own six pack. i got ranger ipa, stone ipa, stone ruination ipa, sierra nevada torpedo, racer 5 ipa, and tower 10 ipa from karl strauss. all witch were flipping amazing. cost me around 10$ but for craft beer, thats a steal! expecially for the tower 10 ipa. costs 5 bucks for a pint at the brewhouse, got it for a 1.49$!
overall i highly recomend it if you love craft beer or are a wine fanatic.
