This store is amazing, the owner really knows his beer and is a beer geek himself. He makes great recommendations. The atmosphere was great, I was practically dancing to the music and the beer geek talk is flowing all the time. The selection is great and you will never leave the store disappointed. I used to go to hi-time, but find the selection here as good or better. If you are within a few hours of the store it is worth a visit. To the previous reviewer, try taking a piss at the in-n-out down the street, it's a bottle shop not a restaurant.

Danny is phenomenal. Very helpful, knowledgable about beer. Solid beers at all times in this spot.

Always a good selection of high end beers here. Plus, I found a bottle of Elijah Crag 21yr on their shelf!

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.
