This place is awesome. They have a pretty large selection of beers, proper glassware, t shirts and knowledgable employees. I actually found out about this place on Instagram and I'm glad I did. The last time I was there I picked up some Almanac sours. I will definitely be coming back soon.

Mostly positive experiences (all online through craftbeerkings). Had some confusion with getting a refund when the wrong beer was shipped. Have been able to get some beers I haven't found elsewhere. Would like to see the bottle limit policy changed. Makes sense to limit so others can get some to but 1 bottle limits when dealing with shipping too is a pain. Maybe make it in the 2 to 6 range?

Lots of beer but poorly organized and quite a few duplicates in other sections. It's definitely a great place but it's not for me. I couldn't find anything I really wanted to take back to the east coast with me.

This is a regular stop for me when I'm looking for specific bottles. I am very lucky to be local. All the guys (Mike, Moe, et. al) at Plaza are helpful and knowledgable. They take great care of their customers and can answer nearly any questions about beer. The best in the area, for sure.

This is the place to go for all of your craft beer needs in the San Gabriel Valley! I've been coming here for a while now and have never been dissappointed with the service or the selection. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, but the two that really stand out are Moe and Mike. Awesome dudes! The prices are very reasonable oh and did i mention that they ship to other states?! Check em out at craftbeerkings.com or follow them on instagram @craftbeerkings to stay updated on their stock
Truely a hidden gem burried in the middle of South El Monte!

What a hidden gem buried in the, umm, neighborhoods of LA. I honestly thought I was at the wrong place when I pulled up as it basically looks like a quick-e-mart in the Hispanic community.

So much great west coast stuff to be found here that I almost had to buy a second suitcase. Be sure to ask for Moe - he was super helpful and offered some stuff behind the counter that I never expected to get. About 3 isles of fantastic, quality stuff.

One of the best bottle shops in California! Amazing selection and very friendly knowledgeable staff. Shipping deals are great for folks like me that don't have the opportunity to visit the shop. World class shop! These guys really know what they are doing.

I first visited Plaza Market roughly two years ago while visiting family and friends in SoCal. While I was poking around looking for a few things to shove in my suitcase on the way back to Indy, I got the opportunity to meet with Moe. We made craft beer small talk for quite awhile before he pulled out some limited brew from behind the counter and sent me on the way. I still to this day keep in contact with Moe and swing by Plaza Market whenever I'm in town. I do believe that Moe has curated one of the best craft beer selections in San Gabriel Valley/Los Angeles county. I would suggest anyone to stop by and check out Plaza Market. You won't be disappointed.

The secret to a loyal customer base is no secret at all: Great customer service will bring them back every time. The crew at Plaza Market (craftbeerkings.com) is the best in the business when it comes to great customer service. Thanks to Moe, living in the Midwest (Minnesota) doesn't mean I have to go without all the crazy good brews being produced on the West Coast. His extensive knowledge and willingness to seek out whatever I'm looking for makes this my go to for anything beer related. Did I also mention that @craftbeerkings is also on Instagram? Check these guys out....they never disappoint!

I had the opportunity to visit Plaza Market while I was in town for the MLS Cup. They helped me pick out some Awsome beers to bring back home to Texas. They have a huge selection and great customer service, I recommend any one that goes to L.A. to make that short drive to El Monte and check them out. Can't wait to go back. In the mean while I keep up with them and follow them on Instagram @craftbeerkings.

I had a chance to check this place out when I was in town. I have been following them on Instagram for some time now and wanted to meet the team in person. They were extremely welcoming and made me feel like we had been friends for years. I started looking around and I was floored by the sheer selection they had. If you can't find a beer you like here your not a beer drinker...period. This will be a must stop anytime I'm in town.

Despite living in Chicago, Plaza Market (craftbeerkings.com) has been my go-to place for trying all of the great beers that California has to offer, especially those that are not available in the Midwest due to distribution limitations. Their prices are fair and shipping is available across the country which is very hard to come by, especially given their amazing selection. Plaza Market provides a unique opportunity to obtain very limited/rare releases and they give everyone a fair shake at obtaining a bottle. Their staff are some of the most friendly, well versed craft beer fans in the industry so I always enjoy conversing with the team. I also look forward to their Instagram posts (@craftbeerkings) to see what's new that I should be considering. Whether you are local to the Los Angeles area or from out of town using the web, pay them a visit and you won't be disappointed.
