Visited this place before going into the Bruery as they are right around the corner from each other. This store has a very impressive selection of beer, lots of craft, imports and macros. They have both refrigerated and dry beers. Prices were a little higher than what I pay for at my local bottle shops and some of the higher end stuff was not priced but when you operate on a budget price is very important (I operate on a limited beer budget). Don't live in the area but this place would be worthy of weekly visit. Definitely a place to stop by if you love good beer.

Traveled to SoCal from Ohio on business. Went to visit The Bruery. Was told to go here to find a nice selection of excellent hard to find SoCal beers. IMO one of the best craft beer selections I have seen. Wish I had a store like this near where I live in Ohio.

This place is located right at the entrance of the street to the Bruery. From the outside, it seems like a small liquor store, but once inside you'll see lots of solid craft beers in coolers to the side, and some on the shelves in the middle.

I thought the selection per square feet of this smallish bottle shop was really high-end. I saw the typical SoCal distro beers, but also some harder to find stuff.

For those in the area and interested in craft beers, this is a nice shop to visit.

If I lived closer, this would be one of my regulars.

Update - 1/4/2015: I visited Mr. K's again today. For a shop of this size, they had a fantastic selection.

Must visit if you are in Orange County. This store is its only 50 feet away from The Bruery. They carry some of the hard to find beers. Don't let the outside look of the store fool you this is a hidden gem. Owner is a pretty cool dude he would go out of his way to help and will try to get what you want. I frequently shop here since last 3 years and once you stop by this store so will you.

I stopped in here after a visit to The Bruery. From the outside it looks like a sort of seedy liquor store, but inside it is packed with lots of beer among other things. There are about 8 cooler doors dedicated to beer with an island in the middle of warm beer on shelves. They had lots of beers that I haven't seen anywhere else in SoCal which is always awesome. They guy working showed me lots of new beers that just came in and answered all of my questions. Prices are reasonable for SoCal. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.
