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.
