As other's have stated, it looks like a run of the mill liquor store that would probably carry nothing but domestic piss and machine made cigarettes, but as soon as you take a look at their bottle grave you know you're stepping into a legitimate bottle shop.

Frank is good about splitting up fast selling shipments into two time slots. I think he released BCBS in the morning and after 5PM for those who can't get in due to work, school, etc. He also get's in some beer's that I haven't really seen at other bottle shops in the area.

He's a cool guy and remembers what you're looking for and helps people out to the best of his ability without gouging prices and screwing other people over.

All-in-all, if you're in North OC, (Brea/Fullerton/Anaheim) they're worth checking out. They're located in the same mall as the Guitar Center, across the street from a used car dealership and Pepe's and south of Downtown Brea.

Looks like a convenience store on the outside (and inside from that matter) because it half is.

Beer is lined on the back couple shelves, packed in as much as possible, overflowing on the ground and everywhere they can stick it. Plenty of rarer selections that are sold out faster at other locations, probably because it's located in a less beer dense area.

Service was an old woman at the counter, so neither pro or con, she was friendly enough.

Prices seemed in line with everything else I saw that week in CA so if you strike out in San Diego for a limited release, maybe venture here if you make a trip to Anaheim for The Bruery.

Hacienda Beverage blends into the little strip mall they call home very well... a little too well. For years I had no idea they sold craft beer. That all changed when a sales rep told me to check them out. I work right around the corner, so it's convenient for me.

The place is a little small, but the beer aisles are packed with good stuff. They usually get stuff as soon as the "big box" stores in the neighborhood, and even if it's a little later, I don't mind. The service at Hacienda is top notch. Frank remembers, and takes care of, repeat customers. He is very knowledgeable and always willing to discuss any of the beers they carry, or beer in general.

Sometimes their prices are a dollar higher than the aforementioned "big box" stores, but I don't mind spring this small, family-run business with a little extra to cover their higher costs. (I'm sure they don't buy in as much volume as the big guys.)

My only complaint is something that's out of their control. Russian River doesn't send them any sours or IPAs. I don't know why; they would sell like hot cakes there.

Hacienda has earned my business and my loyalty.
