This is a little store in Tehachapi near a Mini mall close to a taco bell.I had been in this place before and was not that impressed but my daughter had moved to Tehachapi and I was in the area so I decided to give it another try.It looks like they have a different owner because they had way more stock.Most of there beer is in two big coolers.They had Founders,Stone,Lagunitas,Rogue.Firestone,Modern times and many others.Very well stocked.If your in the area check it out.I will be going back.

Howard's is located at the intersection of the 202 and Tucker Road near downtown Tehachapi. There is a small private lot in front.

The exterior is not much to look at. As a matter of fact I never would have bothered stopping in here since it looks like a gas station convenience store, but a local recommended checking it out. The interior looks like a gas station convenience store as well. The beer coolers are on the left side.

The beer selection is surprisingly good, possibly the best variety in Tehachapi (which admittedly is not saying a lot). Beers from Stone, Lengthwise, Kernville, New Belgium, Alaskan, Kona and Nectar are all represented. There are a few decent imports from the UK and Belgium as well.

Service here was standard - friendly but not really focused on beer.

Overall I would recommend stopping at this spot if for no other reason than to grab a couple regional beers that cannot be found elsewhere.
