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.

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.
