The Beverage Warehouse is located just off the 405/90 (Marina del Rey Freeway), in West L.A. The place is located in an industrial park type area, just off Culver Blvd. Inside there is a wide selection of beer, wine, spirits. Inside to the right, you find the beer, a large selection of American crafts, Belgians, and European imports. They have a lot that I don't even see at Hi-Times, such as selections from the Penn Brewery. Prices are very good here, bombers are a good $.50 to $1 under what you find at other reatilers and 750s are often more than $2 off. This is a warehouse, so none of the beer is refrigerated, but the great selection more than makes up for it. Found a large selection of Belgians of 330 mL size that I haven't seen elsewhere. A great place to buy beer if you're in the West L.A. area.

The place is clean, spacious, and the stock is displayed like someone actually cared. All the shelves are out in the open, but "warm" is not exactly the right word. Though there is no refrigeration, it felt like typical wear-your-hoodie southern California coastal temperature.
I think it's a pretty amazingly broad spectrum of beers. Not only that, prices were less than average. For instance, they had all of the Goose Island "girls" but for several dollars less than I've seen elsewhere. I wouldn't say there were any rarities, but they had beers I've never seen from several SoCal breweries. I can't begin to list the huge variety of breweries represented. Also dozens of Belgians and Germans.
If you want six-packs, they have vastly more of those than the boutique beer shops. Plus, where can you get Rainier Ale these days, and for six bucks for six 16 oz cans?
This would be the place for someone flying in to LAX and renting a car. You could harvest a vast array of California brews and fill up your trunk for a two week trip with one stop.

I love this place! Great selection of beers from the US and international. You can always trust that they'll have the new releases and a huge selection of bombers and sixers. They dont really have 12ers but thats not a problem. This place is sort of hidden in an off the beaten path strip mall. When you find it you'll be pleasantly surprised. My one beef would be that I wish they stayed open a little later on weekdays b/c I cant get there before 6pm from work.
Nice selection of wine and spirits too!

Located at the back of a industrial strip shopping center. Not sure what I was getting into, but glad I found it and glad I stopped in.
Cold beer is limited to one small cooler opposite the registers in the front. Warm beer area is large and all the way in the back and quite extensive. I was able to find plenty that I was looking for to fill my checked bags for the trip back east. Lots of Alaskan, AleSmith, Stone (plenty of 15th), and Drake's to make me happy.
Service, though a bit standoffish at first, was actually very pleasant when I checked out.
Hard to find, not easy to get to, but worth a stop.

Visited this place on many occasions, figured I owed 'em a review.
Pretty decent selection of craft/import beers, the usual Samuel Smith/Samuel Adams/Lagunitas/Stone offerings that you can find in most places. The place looks like a large industrial warehouse, but everything is well organized. Prices are fair, on par with a lot of other stores in LA that sell craft beer. Only thing is they only carry stuff that you can find anywhere else, if you are looking for rare, one off beers, this isn't the place for you. You better know what you are looking for though, i'v been to this place maybe a dozen times and not once has anyone ever asked me if I needed help, which was all well and good, since I usually have an idea of what I need before I go there. Overall, decent place to get your craft beer fix.
