[04-16-2011 edit] I have to update this score to reflect how this place keeps getting better. They get tons of stuff from RR (literally everything they bottle), Sculpin now (first in the valley to carry it), they had Eclipse back in December (picked up Elijah Craig 2009, Heaven Hill 2009, and Evan Walker 2010), and just keep getting more and more special stuff as time goes on. I have gotten to know the staff pretty well and they are always just insanely friendly. I am going to miss this store when I move back to Chicago at the end of May. A definite place to stop if you are around area.
Started coming here a couple of months ago. Before this I only really went to one other beer store around the area so it was nice to find another close by. In the few short months I have been going to Green Jug their selection has improved quite a bit. They have some decent hard to find beers, along with the other staples one would expect. As of yesterday they still had plenty of Parabola, Cotton, some RR brews, etc. They just got in a few new JP beers also. Essentially, if there is a good beer the distributer has, Green Jug will get it. Matt, the beer guy, is extremely helpful and will give me updates on when certain beers are in stock. I am yet to go to a tasting (was suppose to go this Friday but it looks like I may miss it) but I look forward to going to them in the future. A good beer store (that also has plenty of other types of alcohol).

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.
