This place has really picked its game up in the last 2 years. Beer selection has more than tripled. Lots of bombers, belgians and some rare stuff.

Wish there were a few more 6 packs and a mix a 6 option but oh well. Raj keeps prices very competitive and cheaper than Stearns. Abut half of his selection is refridgerated. Occasional discounts so its best to come often and ask if there is anything in the back. Not much parking but its ok for a liquor store.

California Heights Market easily has the best selection of beer and wine in the Bixby Knolls/California Heights area. Granted the prices are slightly more than you would pay at BevMo! or Total Wine, why not pay $1-$2 more per bottle to support a small independent local business.

The building is old but it has its charm.

Both Caesar and Raj are very knowledgeable about their brews and will make excellent recommendations if asked. Also, it pays to make nice with them because they keep the good stuff in the back for their regulars.

Came across CA Heights Market on recommendation of a co-worker. I love this place! I stop in about once a week to browse and look for some new tasty brews. I would stop in more often if it was closer to my house... or work, it is closer to work than home, but I do make that effort to stop in... it's worth it!

They have the best selection, by far, of craft and import beers I have seen in one place. I can not stress enough to go in and talk to the cashier, which is usually the Owner... and he knows his beers. And he is proud of what he carries. I told him about some brews I enjoy and he gave out some excellent recommendations.

My last stop of my day in Long Beach brought me to this small liquor store/market surprisingly near my in-laws. The outside looks a bit dumpy but inside there are neat rows of liquor, wine, and beer. Most of the beer is out on the shelf but there are a good number of coolers stocked full of great beer as well. This place has a really good selection of beers from around the world including some beers I have never seen anywhere else before. They also have a section of the store with singles so you can build your own 6 pack if that's your think. Service was good with the cashier coming over to talk to me for a few minutes. Prices were a bit higher than other places but I gladly paid them for some beers I found that I had been looking for forever. I recommend this place if you are in the area and are on the hunt for harder to find beers.
