Viisited 8.16.11, located down the road from buddy's house I was staying at.

You know the Bev Mo' deal, I guess the best I can offer is some comparison to other craft beer outlets in the area. Certainly the quality and depth of the beer selection pails next to Total Wines and More in Tustin, and the knowledge/service are a long ways away from the knowledgeable folks a mile or so away at Shea's. But if you are in this area looking for the fixins for a afternoon drinking beer with buddies, this place makes some sense. On a positive note, they have regular tastings of craft beers (though I've yet to attend one) and they do have a killer soda collection, including very hard to find midwest and eastern regional brands. A step up from area grocery stores.

Not sure why I haven't rated this place yet, as I've been going here regularly for the past couple of years.

What all is there to say about Bev Mo? They get practically everything you could want except for Russian River beers. I even scored a Tactical Nuclear Penguin here.

Quality is great. High turn around means that stock is usually fresh, but you have to hit it just right in order to get ultra limited release beers like the aforementioned TNP, and Sculpin IPA usually sells out in about one day.

Beer tastings on Friday evenings, but so far I've yet to see any real great beer offered for tasting, but I don't check often. I'm kinda shy and just like to get in, get my beer, and get out. About half of the crew knows me and they're all friendly.

Lastly, I'm stoked they do CRV here because it's 1-stop shopping for me! Great selection, and generally the best prices around.

So, I'm the first person to review this BevMo!, and it is no surprise as to why. Pretty standard BevMo! in terms of selection and service.

First the beer selection. Definitely adequate with your occasional specials and deals. If you are looking for some limited releases, this spot is very hit-or-miss; I would definitely check out O'Shea's if this is the case.

Now, service. Everyone here is generally nice and tries to be helpful. A large number of folks seem to genuinely enjoy craft beers, but hardly anyone has more than a cursory knowledge on the subject. I have inquired on several occasions about beers soon-to-be released, and everyone always tells me to call in later when the beer guy is at the store. This gets a little annoying since he never seems to be around.

Generally, a decent spot.
