Solid local beer store with 4 cooler doors of six packs and 22's. Prices are very competitive and usually cheaper than Clarks or Wine Country. This used to be the kind of place where I felt like I was the only beer geek that ever shopped here, but sadly things have changed in the past year. Firestone 12 sat on the shelf here for months, Firestone 13 lasted a couple weeks, and Firestone 14 was gone the day it came in.
They claim to sell the most stone beer in long beach and will give case discounts if you ask nicely. Surprisingly, there is a decent selection of glassware opposite the cooler door that houses the 220z bottles. Also, they have some sort of relationship with the distributor of Asombroso tequila (based in long beach) and it is $10 less than anywhere else.

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.

I visited Stearns Liquor after playing a round at El Dorado since it was fairly close to the course and heard great things about this place.
They had beers both in coolers and shelves. There were some singles that they allowed a mix-and-match 6-pack. Overall, I think the selection here was very nice. I found some European beers that I rarely see. My visit didn't coincide with any special releases from any breweries, so, as expected, I didn't see any rarities. The prices were not the lowest, but I thought they were fair.
I believe they annouce their beer arrivals on social media, so folks can stop by when something fancies their interest comes in. If I lived closer, I'd definitely make Stearns one of my regular stops.
I bought a bottle of Saison-Brett and left satisfied I made the effort to visit this store. Since I golf Long Beach courses periodically, I'm sure I'll be back.
