Visited on a trip to Palm Desert, which is about 1.5 hours away and well worth it. One of the best selections I have seen and I've been to the big stores in SF, SD, and where I live in NYC. This is truly a gem. Looks like an ordinary liquor store from the outside but I was greeted very quickly by the owner Jazz who noticed I obviously had not been in the store before. He was super friendly and had extensive knowledge of many styles, and he's obviously a beer geek. He apologized for not having any Pliny in stock but did mention it would be in the next day. Thankfully the shelves are packed full of rarities and vintages you wouldnt expect. Tons of RR, 3F, Port, Bruery, other BA stouts and barleywines and the more usual Cali beers. Good selection of sours. Also check out his personal stash of rarities in the case - I saw some cantillons, older KBS, KtG, Bruery one-offs, etc. After I racked up a big bill and trying to figure out how I would it all home, I was offered two rare Bruery beers. My only regret is only buying one of them!

Awesome store and service, definitely make the trek if you can.
