Sunset Beer Co is a great place. Has a real family feel to it and a laid back atmosphere. Very nice beer selection. I would like to see more volume in terms of choices. I see beers that are easy to get elsewhere that come and go. They get and have great stuff but I'm surprised that they don't have more.
Good team. Most of them seem to be knowledgable but not snobby - big plus.
Always a good place to hang but the pizza next door is not good. The pizza is not part of this business but it's the place to eat while you're there, so don't come hungry.
Overall, I love having this shop in my hood and I really enjoy my time there. I also think things will only get better.

Fantastic bottle shop in Echo Park, coolers upon coolers filled with fantastic beer. All bottles sold as singles, which makes it convenient to buy & try lots of different brews without spending too much. Their Belgian/European selection is great, and they bring in bottles from a lot of small, out of state breweries as well. The bar side is set up more like a coffee house, very comfortable and inviting. The people working are all very friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. If I had to point out a negative, it would be a phenomenon that is merely a product of how great this place is: while they get most/all of the rare beers distributed to SoCal, they open at 2 and often sell out within a matter of hours, making it difficult for a 9-5er to get them. I certainly don't blame them for this though, and am extremely happy to have a gem like this right down the street.

I've been here a few times. I love this place. They have a tasting room with a bottle shop with around 10 coolers. As expected they carry all the beers distributed in Los Angeles along with some rarities from time to time. Just like them on Facebook to see any special beers they get in like Alpine, Cantillon, limited releases, etc.

The guys that run this place are super cool and very welcoming. For me, the biggest plus is they sell singles of everything. They probably sell half of their inventory in coolers and the other half on two rectangular shelves in the middle of the bottle shop.

It's kinda easy to miss the first time. It's located in a tiny strip mall with limited mall parking and street parking.

The prices are on par with other bottle shops in the area, but given they sell singles, the guys are super chill, and it's relatively close to my house, I'm finding myself visiting this store more often.
