One of the more unique beer places I've ever been. It's part deli, part beer bar, and part beer store.

The left side of the store is a deli where they make many different types of sandwiches. I did not try the food. The back of the store is a bar with about 20 taps, all craft and all excellent selections. The right side of the store is an outstanding beer store with just about anything that you could possible be looking for. Definitely one of the better selections in Orange County.

This is a family run place with many generations of the family working side by side. They are all really nice and friendly. There is a TV showing sports and tons of Packers memorabilia.

The prices were very reasonable with a 17 oz pour of most domestic crafts being $6. More expensive stuff, such as St Bernardus Christmas, was $10 for a 12oz and $14 for a 17oz. It seems that their tap selection rotates often. When I was in there, it was a couple days after Christmas and a lot of their selection was holiday themed.

I would definitely recommend this place, it's outstanding. Keep in mind they are only open weekdays.

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.
