This is the only spot to get some quality craft beer in the city of Whittier. Make sure you follow them on facebook, because they always post up what goodies have come in, and sometimes if you say you want them to hold you stuff they tend to do it, which is awesome. The owner Mario is pretty chill, always is eager to learn more about craft beer to try and get better selections in the store, I have to give him credit for that. There is a worker there named Jeremy, the dude is a total hop head. Talk beer to that guy, and he is sure give you the scoop if you need help finding a beer. Also prices tend to be a little high, but like another review said, the alternative is driving a lot farther and blowing more money on gas. I hope this place can get a little more popular so they can dedicate more shelf space to more selections of beer. Definitely a spot to check out if in the area.

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.
