Who would thought this dingy gritty liquor store off the beaten path of Ontario Ave. in Corona would carry so much quality craft beers.

This is second time I've been here. Stopped here at almost 10 pm and all sorts of oddball characters came and exited. And guess what, you can still find Stone Vertical 08, Stone 12th and 13th Anniversary, and Ballast Point Imperial Stout here, while they are all long gone in other stores. Also found RR Blind Pig and PtE here, which is rare considered most stores are sold out. Granted the Blind Pig I bought was bottled in 3/1/10, but it still tastes great and fresh. Other notables are Kern River Outstanding IPA, Mikkeller, Port, some random Belgians I don't see elsewhere... all the big So Cal regulars.

Just for entertainment they also has those Cold Spring beers in those huge-ass cans, all kinds of malt liquors, PBR in 32 oz bottles.

Service is impeccable as the cashier took extra time to search beers in the back cooler which is not on shelves. Very friendly and although the fellow is clearly not a beer geek but extremely amiable.

Overall a great experience, and I recommend you to shop here late at night to avoid the chaotic traffics and Inland Empire's scorching heat in the morning.

Been here a few times, not the cleanest place, and I did not get the service I have heard others speak about, but they have a very good selection of beer, liquor, and wine. Often times there are unopened boxes of beer in the beer aisle, bottles are dusty, glassware is dusty. Besides the selection nothing really stands out here, prices are average some of the rarer beers are little higher and most of the beer is refrigerated. It's worth a visit the selection does not disappoint as they have one of the best in the Inland Empire.

This is a place I always stop at on my way down to San Diego. I never miss it. And I always stop on the way back a few days later just to make sure nothing new hit the shelves. Jazz has a good stock of a lot of good stuff. Overall this is just an amazing craft beer store.

Stopped in here on the way into town, I had heard amazing things so I was really looking forward to checking it out. Not the most beautiful looking place from the outside but really nice once you get inside. Tons of wine and liquor in the first few isles, beer in the last one. Atmosphere was laid back with lots of people coming and going. Service was solid all around. I was asked if I needed any help and he was nice enough to point out a few things I may have overlooked. Quality and selection were both quite high. I didn't see any out of date beers and they even offer some proper glassware for some of their beers. Selection was really solid. They had everything from the everyday beers of the west coast to some really rare beers I have never seen on a shelf anywhere else but here. Prices were a touch high on the rarer bottles but all of the others were reasonable so I can't knock it too much. Overall probably the best bottle shop I have come across on this trip. I just wish it was a little closer to where we are staying, I would love to go back.

Best bottle shop in the Inland Empire and possibly Southern California (I haven't found a better one). Great selection, fairly priced, and Jazz is very knowledgeable and always helpful. Posts new beers on Instagram and FB to notify customers. All IPAs are refrigerated and cellar-able beer is on the shelves. They also have a great selection of bourbon and other spirits.
