Amazingly, this is the first time I've visited this store even though it's only a few miles from my house. Stopped in on a Saturday night to pick up a few brews for the NFL Conference Championships tomorrow.

The selection is pretty standard for any respectable craft beer spot in Southern California. The usual suspects are all represented, though only a small percentage of breweries' portfolios are present and accounted for. There's one aisle of craft beer on shelves in the middle of the store; American to the right and Imports to the left. The cooler has four or five doors worth of craft beer and looks pretty well-maintained.

The clerk who was working at the time of my visit was a pretty cool guy. He definitely isn't a full-blown beer nerd as evidenced by his suggestion that Blue Moon is a great (and authentic) Belgian Wit. Plus, when I asked if the Hop Stoopid was fresh, he told me "Naw dude, don't even worry about that. All our beers are ready to drink, bro!" I then tried to explain to him the phenomenon of hop flavor fading in a relatively short period of time, to which he responded with a look of astonished bewilderment. He did seem real enthusiastic about the craft beer selection, though, and made plenty of suggestions, recommendations, and vouchers for his favorites.

All in all, this is a solid craft beer store that offers a quality selection at reasonable prices, even if the employees manning the sales floor aren't the most knowledgeable. What the hell else can you possibly ask for from a store in Whittier called Liquor Mart!?! This will now be my emergency beer store when everyone else is already closed.
