I love Dome Liquors. Not only is it close to my location so that I don't have to drive the extra 20-40 minutes (depending on traffic) to get to Hi-Time. It is the place where I can pick up my Ommegang essentials, some Stone, Alesmith and some English and Irish beers. Also, they are pretty much all cold. You can get pretty much anything you want already chilled, whereas BevMo in Brea only has a few in the case.

Dome is also nice due to the tastings that they host. Every friday they have a great wine tasting and they are planning on amping up their beer tastings. They used to have a guy that planned them, but he moved on, so they are in transition. I did talk to the guy and he told me they were definitely going to try to work with some local breweries. This is excellent news.

When you go in, be sure to get on their mailing list so you can get the updates. It's worth it. The tastings are fantastic and the people you meet are great! It makes you feel like more of a "family" of beer/wine lovers vs. a sterile liquor store.

I stop by this place once in a while to pick up beers as it's on the way to my friends house and never thought to see it listed on BA. Most of the beers are in coolers against the back right wall as you walk in. If you're facing the register - it's straight back. The selection is great and the prices seem decent. You really won't get help for the most part - just think oversized liquor store with an unusually good beer selection. It's no John's Marketplace in Portland but it's one of the better places local.

08-06-05 Review Update: Vendome still carries one of the best assortments of German beers in the area, IMO. They also carry a good selection of beers by Victory; Golden Monkey, V-12, Storm King, Hop Devil and my favorite, Prima Pils. They also had Stoudt's double IPA six-packs. Prices are pretty decent. Still worth stopping in if you're in the Brea/Yorba Linda/Placentia area.

Located on the north side of Yorba Linda Blvd in Yorba Linda, Vendome Liquor has a nice open layout with the beer section located in the right rear of their rectangular building.
Along the right wall are the refridgerated beers. In front of them are some low shelves stocked with a nice assortment of German, British, and Belgian ales. Notable on the shelves were offerings from Allgäuer, Aktien Brauerei, Ayinger, Paulaner, Schneider & Sohn, Späten, and Weltenburger Kloster from Germany, and a nice range of Fullers, Young's and Samuel Smith's plus St. Peters and Wychewood. From Belgium, I found Abbaye des Rocs Grand Cru, Maredsous 8 and Dobbel, Affligem, Orval, and a number of others. A large assortment of Unibroue beers, including Quelque Chose and La Terrible, are available as well as bombers of Victory's Golden Monkey.
In the reefers, I noted Flying Dog, Stone, Humboldt, Alesmith, Rogue, Lost Coast, Lagunitas, and a host of other U.S. craft brews. The craft brew selection is quite impressive as is the quality. The service was only average: in the nearly thirty minutes I wandered around looking at the selection, no one came up to inquire if I needed any help. The guy at the register was friendly, however.
Vendome Liquor has a wide variety of interesting brews as well as good regular standbys. Worth checking out if you find yourself in northeast Orange County.

Great store that has lots of good beer, virtually all of it in coolers. The selection is awesome and sports not only California brews, but imports and lots of Unibroue from Canada. Plenty of singles to choose from. Strip shopping center with decent off-street parking.

Almost missed this as the street sign is difficult to see and read; hard to tell if it says Vendome or Venidome on the sign. Glad I had the street number from BA Beerflys, almost always a great source of information for real beer hunters. BeerFly Guides in this state are really on top of the beer scene here.

I normally don't go through Yorba Linda too often, but a few months back, I was in the area, so I checked this place out based on a tip from herbjones.

I missed this place the first time I drove by. It's on the north side of the street. Keep your eyes peeled!
They have a very good selection of micros. If you're in the Yorba Linda area, you don't need to go much farther than Dome for your brews
