Interesting architectural building with a stone facade, huge dark windows, tiny porthole windows, a marquis (sp?) listing some notables.

It's not a huge place, but the inside is spaced well and not crowded even though they carry a sizeable selection of beer, wine, hard liquor and soda.

Their beer selection was decent if not mind blowing. There was a cooler of Belgiums and German beers, about 2 or 3 coolers for American craft with English ales mixed in. About 2 coolers had six-packs of Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, Firestone, Stone and Rogue. There were also a few coolers of macros in cases and six-packs. The prices were uniformly on the low side. 22s of Chimay for $5-$6, Alesmith and Bear Republic for under $3, for example.

Although I didn't need any help, all of the employees were very welcoming and friendly.

If you're in the west part of the San Fernando Valley this is a decent place to check out.

I live waaaay on the other side of the county, but I do have some family in west hills so this is my go to spot when I venture out this far into the valley. Beer selection is top notch - and it seems to last here since it's soo far away from most beer nerds.
Prices are just like any other place in that they are fair and not over priced at all. They also have reasonably priced glassware section with everything from tulips to nonics to tasting glasses.
Hours are great. They open at 9a and 90% of they're brew is cold so you can drink up without cooling down your stuff when you get home. Open late on weekends and they have beer tastings on Thursday
Staff has always been friendly when I come in. I'm not that talkative and they respect that never lookin over me when I'm the last customer in need of that late night run or their first customer stocking up for a good day off
Over the years of me coming here I've been able to pick up some of the best beers around including Pliny and other russian river brews , Parabola, Eclipse50/50, and Hair of the dog (from the wood) series
I'm giving this place a high rating because the flat out deserve it - you can probably find me raving about this place on hard liquor and wine websites too!

This is a great bottle shop! Nice variety and always fresh beers. The customers that come in know their beer, and thus the bottles get turned-over quickly. I can always trust them to have the newest releases.

They also have a large selection of wine and spirits.

Matt , the beer guy, knows a lot about beer styles you might be looking for or new ones you haven’t tried yet. He will help you and you will go home happy with the beer he helps you pick out. Trust me.
They always have a great selection of Stone, Lagunitas, Firestone, Mikkeller, Anchorage Brewing, Bootleggers, Ventura Surf, Knee Deep, Belgian beers, etc. just to name a few. Plenty of barrel aged stuff, IPAs, stouts, lagers, etc. whatever the style you want they got it. They do beer tastings on Thursday nights which are very cool.
Beer is ALWAYS cold unlike BevMo or Total Wine.

Helpful staff with a very knowledgeable team.

Atmosphere is very simple and clean. The building is large and cannot be missed. I thought it was a bar before I went inside.

They carry very nice beers, selection is the best in the san fernando valley.

They don't have food here. They carry spirits, wine, beer (esp. craft and European) and cigars.

Prices are pretty good. Last I went Pliny the Elder was going for about $5 per bottle. Way better than most places! They always have discounts on certain beers.
