This is a nice liquor store in Rancho Cucamonga. I didn't spend much time, but I believe all their beers were refrigerated. The selection was on the smaller side, but they carried quality craft beers.
The cashier was friendly and asked about the bottle I picked out, mostly because I had a sour. I love sours, but I could see how the store might get some complaints if the buyer didn't know what to expect.
Its a simple liquor store with solid choices. They dont get Pliny but Mark will share beers he gets in trades, he has given me heady toper, hopslam, Dark Lord etc just for beign a regular customer. The shelf near the back tends to have some gems
It's your usual small liquor store where you grab what you want and get out fast. Unlike some, it is very clean and tidy on the inside.
Most of the beer is refigerated. Black Butte XXI, Hofbrau, Ayinger, Dale Bros, Hangar 24, The Bruery, Unibroue, Tripel Karmeliet, Black Xantus, Stone/Maui/Schmitt collaboration ale are some of the highlights I found in the refrigerator. To the side, there are a few small glass cases which house maybe 25 varieties of expensive beer. Beer like Rodenbach, St. Feuillien, DeProef, some other varieties as well. Nothing too dusty, and no nasty looking bottles in either section.
I was approached by the cashier when I was looking at the glass cases. She told me they open, so I traded out my Black Butte XXI I got from the fridge and picked up a room temp one. When I went to pay, me and her started talking for a little. She recommended the XXI I bought, asked if I knew about Samiclaus, and gave me directions to a sister store called "Red Carpet Wine & Spirits". Her name is Jessica, and I was trated very nicely by her. I would continued to talk, but I had other things to do. Such as visiting the sister store...
