I visited Hollingshead's Deli on a Friday evening. The place is like a cross between a liquor store and a deli; it's located in a strip mall and is pretty non-descript from the outside. They have seriously good beers on tap and a truly unbelievable selection of bottled beers for sale. I had Pliny the Elder; not many places you will find that on tap in Orange County. There are a half dozen or so tables set up inside the store and a few outside, plus a little bar that seats about 8. It was a full house with 20 to 30 people. I will have to go back to try the food next time.

Been here many times and the beers on tap never disappoint. I've had everything from a goose island tap takover (which had 3 of the bourbon county beers), to special and limited Lagunitas releases such as the waldo beer. Also they reguraly have pliny and blind pig on tap which is always a nice surprise. I used to go there for the sandwiches also but the sandwiches are fairy expensive, about 7-10 dollars for a single and 14-20 bucks for a double (which is ridiculous) and that accompanied with a 6-12 dollar beer really adds up quick.

Overall its a great spot if you want awesome beer and pretty good sandwiches, just be ready to pay about 20 dollars for one single sandwich and one beer. Service is sub par but for me the beer they have make up for it. Would recommend.

This is a wonderful place. What you can't get on tap, you can certainly find in a bottle. The food is fantastic, though I feel it is overpriced. These guys also carry some pretty special beers, so some of the taps are understandably pricey.

Kenny Hollingshead is a wonderful man and he runs a wonderful delicatessen. I try to go here at least once a week to stop by and have a drink and a cheese/meat platter.

Stopped in here yesterday, my first time visiting this place after hearing about it for years. Atmosphere was good. People eating at most of the tables, including some of the ones right in front of the beers I was trying to look at. Service was great. I was asked if I needed help twice and the woman who checked me out could not have been nicer. Quality was great. Food looked top notch, even though I didn't partake this time, and the beers all were high quality offerings. Selection was great. They have a ton of beer packed into a small place. I was able to find two Almanac's I had been searching for so that was a welcome surprise. No food this time but it looked awesome from what I saw. Prices were more than reasonable on most of the bottles I was interested in. Overall a really nice bottle shop that I would definitely return to in the future.
