Typical BevMo, most of the time if you've been to one you've been to them all. There are a few exceptions but I don't remember anything standing out here. The good thing about BevMo is there sale prices and the only BevMo that I think carries good variety is the one in Temecula.

I used to visit this location when I would hit my buddies house down the street.

Atm- Faily well lit with a smaller store size than some of the other Bevmo's I have been too. More of the older crowd due to the area in Glendora.

Quality- Overall a good mix of beers on the shelf. More Import offerings due to the location and more domestic as well. Some harder to find beers at times.

Service- Very helpful everytime I go in. If I call ahead they will hold bottles for you vs making you buy them online.

Selection- Good selection of beers across the board. Fairly accomodating range of styles at times, can be spotty as well.

Food- N/A

Value- A good place in the far LA county area for some single bottles if you live in the area that are more Import vs craft. Only bad part is not breaking 6packs.

I've been to this BevMo a few times, and it's definitely one of the better ones.

They do a pretty good job of bringing in good beers and limited releases (from Deschutes such as Abyss, FW13, Goose Island BCS). They also have the mainstays you expect from a So Cal BevMo.

The service is good in that everyone there is willing to help you. However, it seems they don't really have a person that knows much about the beer. At least, not when I've been there. But, as I said, that isn't all that big of a deal.

I regularly go to about 5 different BevMo's within 20 minutes of my house because all usually have something slightly different in stock I'm looking for. My main two are the Rancho Cucamonga and Glendora locations. They are all generally the same, but I would give Glendora a much deserved nod over the RC location for a few reasons.

First, Glendora has more space. You can probably wheel a cart through there without having to backup and exit an isle 20 times during your shopping.

Second, Glendora keeps their beer sections stocked better.

Other than that it's pretty much the same as every other BevMo, but the space thing is huge and the smaller ones like Rancho Cucamonga and Chino Hills really ruin my experience when you are running into someone every 3 minutes or can't even go down isles with a cart.

This is probably the best of the bevmos that I've been to. My same complaints apply to this location. The put all the responsibility of purchasing beer on one person and that one person doesn't necesarily know that much about beer to begin with. They have a good portion of the store dedicated to beer and the clerk said that they could order Russian River beers for me.

They keep expanding their inventory to include more breweries. The last time I was in there they had some stuff from Victory as well some stuff from Lost Abbey.

I like this place and I will continue to go there when I'm in the area.

This is one of the latest stores to open in the ever-expanding chain of the liquor warehouse variety. Not that I'm complaining as it's a leisurely five minute walk from my house. This particular BevMo is located in the southeast corner of the new Diamond Ridge shopping center in Glendora, between the Staples and Bed, Bath, & Beyond.

Walk in and head back to the right rear of the store to find the beer. The selection is par for the course for BevMo with a pretty good range of domestic craft brews - Allagash, Alaskan, Stone, Ballast Point, Alesmith, to name a few. The imports are also available with a decent selection of German and British beers. I do wish there was a greater variety of Belgian beers, though.

As mentioned in the previous review, the real downside to this store is the astonishing lack of customer service on the floor. I spent almost ten minutes trying to get a mini-keg of Kapuziner hefeweizen down from the top shelf (how stupid is that to put those things that high up?), wandered around looking for assistance and found no one available. I finally gave up and left.

For everyday brews I'd go here since it's so close to home. But for specialty brews and a greater selection of high-quality imported craft beer and better service, I'll roll to Lone Hill Liquor.
