They call themselves the craft beer kings, which is kind of funny. the last time I went in there they had lots of hoppy beers sitting on warm shelves which was a big turn off for me. The location is kind of ghetto, you kow when you go into a store and the entire register area is covered with bullet proof glass you are in a terrible location. Their selection was nothing worthy of the craftbeerkings name, plus they the 2nd to last time I went in there they publicly displayed Utopias, so I asked to buy it and the owner, mike told me he would rather wait until his online store was up and running and try to sell it for double the price to someone else. So that ended it for me with them. My warning to all is to don't waste your time, go to Liquor Mart in Whittier or House Of Spirits in Monrovia. Better selection and better customer service.

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.

Words can't describe the experience they've provided. A unbelievable selection, reasonable prices, and excellent customer service. Mike was more than helpful and put together an amazing deal for me. Go online and be amazed. I could go on and on, but let Mike prove to you why their the best.
