I was first introduced to this place by a friend of mine who used this site to find a new place to buy beer. Upon my first visit i immediately fell in love with the place. The best part is that they do sell pricey beers, but there is no mark up. I am happy i can find some hard to come by beers and not get stuck paying a few extra bucks. Downer is sometimes they are gone by the time i get the chance to stop by, but thats okay.

I definitely enjoy stopping by grabbing a few bottles and talking shop with the fellas there. If you stop by and get to meet Danny, its worth your time to take a few minutes to either let him help you find a new beer to try or the very least pick his brain about some beers.

I look forward to what lays ahead for stearns with Danny running it. He has some great ideas and has some great beers to be released throughout that future, and it makes me wish i lived close to the store.

Stearns is my go to spot. I've been frequenting it for around 5 years now and have gotten to know the owner (Danny) and the rest of the employees fairly well. Someone is usually calling out my name and pointing out something special as I walk in the door. the place is well stocked, laid out nicely and has a great vibe. All the hoppy beers are in the coolers like others have stated. Stouts and the like on the shelves right near a small glassware section that is always worth a look. The prices are very competitive and if you can manage to slow Danny down for a few minutes he's always good for geeking out on some beer talk. Also as others have stated they post most special arrivals on social media so follow them if you want to land those Whalez!

Great place, friendly service and a gem of a store. The person working this past Saturday when I visited was very attentive and helpful. The store had a great selection of crafts and I found numerous beers that I had been looking for in other stores in L.A. but could not find.. The better part of their beer selection is kept in their cooler, which is something I appreciate. Prices are in line with other stores in the Los Angeles area.

The store is somewhat off the beaten path but not hard to find. I had always heard good things about Stearn's but somehow never made over there. Even though this store is a bit out of the way for me I will find a way to visit there regularly. I don't mind going out of my way for good selection, friendly service and cold beers.
