Very surprised at the level of selection beer being a self-professed wine store. Honestly, I can't think of another location with more selection. Lots of US micros, mostly west coast. Quite a bit of belgians and other Intl stuff too. Particularly like the "seasonal" section.

The only area of criticism would be that they don't seem to ever have a good beer geek on staff to answer questions. They tend to focus their expertise on wine. Pretty bad when the patrons are schooling the staff. Great joint though, hang there often.

This store is another solid Total Wine location in the SoCal area. The beer section is large with some in coolers and most on the shelf. The service is average. This particular location had bottles from local breweries that I haven't seen in any other Total Wine which is a plus. I wouldn't think twice about stopping in again if I was in the area.

I gotta start by saying that if you come to total wine make sure you take your time in choosing your beer cause total wine has a big selection of craft beer and their prices are reasonable. My first time i came here i didnt know where to start then i walk in to a aisle and saw that you could get a mix six pack I took like almost an hour to make up my mind.Most of my had's i got from total wine. go craft beer. the staff is very nice and helpful. The best thing about total wine is that you could make your own six pack. CHEERS

Big fan of the total wine chain, I was first introduced to thi place at their northridge store. Love that this one is closer to me. Great selection of beer(separated by style witch makes things easy if you want to teach people new styles), liquor, and wine. Bigger selection and lower prices than other chain stores. They get a good amount of speacial releases witch makes my pallet happy. I do feel the staff is a little less knowledgeable and helpful than other stores I've been to, but that won't stop me from shopping here.
-cheers for good beer

Outstanding selection. They carry just about every Southern California brewery along with a wide selection of others around the country. There is a lot to take in so plan on spending a bit of time just walking the isles. They like to stash new/seasonal/rarities in random places all over the huge store so make sure you ask or look carefully if you are looking for something specific. The one downside about this place is, like all Total Wine stores, they organize the place by style and not by brewery, which makes finding things challenging sometimes. Overall a great store though.

I like this one a bit more than the Brea store.

Atm- A nice large well lit industrial space with a large wood and metal feel inside.

Quality- They arent a specialty shop like some in the area but they do carry an impressive selection at times of some new releases and well known brands and breweries.

Service- Can be hit or miss. Some know their stuff and some don't. Same could be said of any retailer. Most of the time, friendly and quick to answer a question

Selection- Single bottles being the draw here. Being a craft beer drinker with friends who aren't really allows me to buy what I want and not spend a ton doing it buying all the 6 packs. I can buy what I want, drink it and go back for more on a more regular basis. The selection is nice with a lot of local craft, and even a large belgian selection. Stone, Bruery, Bootleggers, Kern, Lost Abbey, Firestone Walker and many many others.

what i truely love about this total wine is the location/ ease of finding it...its right off the i-15. it is because of this alone, i have to stop by and see what they have everytime i head into southern california. the atmosphere in this store seems a little more radiant...maybe more windows or the sun was sleeming in dont know. selection was pretty good. not as many rarer/harder beers available, quite possibly be a higher volume store. not many out of stocks, and the staff was eager to help when asked, not offering though. all in all its a great store and will always be a returning customer.
