I just recently started visiting Liquor Mart in Whittier. Along with Ramirez Liquor I buy bulk of my beers at these two establishments now. They are both fairly close to me, so I can take surface streets if traffic on the freeways are bad.
Liquor Mart has a solid selection of American and European craft beers. The daily selection is on par with other better shops. They do carry, although, they rarely stay on shelves very long, beers from Russian River, Kern River, and Alpine. Those three are my three favorite breweries in California, and probably the three hardest to acquire. In fact, most of the time, you need to specifically ask for them. If you send a friend request on Facebook, you'll know when those beers come in. They are pretty diligent about keeping Facebook updated.
The time I've been shopping with them, they have gotten the sought after West Coast limited editions like Sucaba, Parabola, Arctic Devil, etc. They also get top notch Belgian beers like Drie Fonteinen, Cantillon, etc. On a semi-regular basis they get beers like Pliny, Blind Pig, Supplication, Consecration, Just Outstanding, Nelson, Duet, etc.
The prices are on par with other shops, maybe a tad bit more expensive, but definitely competitive.
Overall, a very solid bottle shop.

The atmosphere of the place is just like any standard liquor store. Reasonably clean, well organized. The selection of craft beer is pretty solid. Nothing spectacular though. Prices tend to be a little more expensive, but it beats the drive to LA plus you save on gas.
Jeremy is pretty much the go to guy to talk about beer and I was fortunate enough to stop by the store when he was working. I talked to him about beer for a few minutes telling him that I needed a bottle of PtE to complete a trade and he told me what day to stop by to get some.
Friend them on facebook.
