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.

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.
