Beverage Warehouse is located in an industrial park, not in your usual retail environment. Thus, the warehouse in the name. At first, I wasn't sure I was in the right place. After you make the turn from Culver Blvd, drive straight to the back of the street and there's an entrance to the parking lot on your right. It's a no frills place; that's one, large, carries a very solid inventory, and with fair prices.

Craft beers was probably only 20% of this establishment. Lots of wines and hard liquor. They carried a wide variety of craft beers in six-packs and bottles (domestic craft beers, Belgians, English, and German).

Very nice place to pick up craft beers in bulk for parties and other occasions.

Nothing is refrigerated but they have just about everything. AND you can look up what they have on their website.

The place is clean, spacious, and the stock is displayed like someone actually cared. All the shelves are out in the open, but "warm" is not exactly the right word. Though there is no refrigeration, it felt like typical wear-your-hoodie southern California coastal temperature.

I think it's a pretty amazingly broad spectrum of beers. Not only that, prices were less than average. For instance, they had all of the Goose Island "girls" but for several dollars less than I've seen elsewhere. I wouldn't say there were any rarities, but they had beers I've never seen from several SoCal breweries. I can't begin to list the huge variety of breweries represented. Also dozens of Belgians and Germans.

If you want six-packs, they have vastly more of those than the boutique beer shops. Plus, where can you get Rainier Ale these days, and for six bucks for six 16 oz cans?

This would be the place for someone flying in to LAX and renting a car. You could harvest a vast array of California brews and fill up your trunk for a two week trip with one stop.

I love this place! Great selection of beers from the US and international. You can always trust that they'll have the new releases and a huge selection of bombers and sixers. They dont really have 12ers but thats not a problem. This place is sort of hidden in an off the beaten path strip mall. When you find it you'll be pleasantly surprised. My one beef would be that I wish they stayed open a little later on weekdays b/c I cant get there before 6pm from work.

Nice selection of wine and spirits too!

Located at the back of a industrial strip shopping center. Not sure what I was getting into, but glad I found it and glad I stopped in.

Cold beer is limited to one small cooler opposite the registers in the front. Warm beer area is large and all the way in the back and quite extensive. I was able to find plenty that I was looking for to fill my checked bags for the trip back east. Lots of Alaskan, AleSmith, Stone (plenty of 15th), and Drake's to make me happy.

Service, though a bit standoffish at first, was actually very pleasant when I checked out.

Hard to find, not easy to get to, but worth a stop.

Visited this place on many occasions, figured I owed 'em a review.

Pretty decent selection of craft/import beers, the usual Samuel Smith/Samuel Adams/Lagunitas/Stone offerings that you can find in most places. The place looks like a large industrial warehouse, but everything is well organized. Prices are fair, on par with a lot of other stores in LA that sell craft beer. Only thing is they only carry stuff that you can find anywhere else, if you are looking for rare, one off beers, this isn't the place for you. You better know what you are looking for though, i'v been to this place maybe a dozen times and not once has anyone ever asked me if I needed help, which was all well and good, since I usually have an idea of what I need before I go there. Overall, decent place to get your craft beer fix.

i've been going to this place for awhile now since it is just 5 mins away from my parents house. hidden away from the main street next to a residential area.

they have a wide selection of beer, wine, and alcohol. they carry stuff that you wouldn't find at regular liquor or grocery stores. all of their products are organized and displayed in an easy to find order.

the beer section is extensive. they carry the usual popular market beers, but also carry craft brews and have a large european selection. i usually get my alesmith, russian river, rogue, rochefort, or great divide beers here. the only downer to this place is that they usually don't get the hard to find craft brews. i also love getting my beer glasses here. you can get steins, duvel tulips, yards, and pilsners.

the staff is knowledgeable. but don't except them to go up to you. you have to hunt them down for help. but once you get them they are helpful.

overall, this is a place where you can fulfill most of your craft beer needs.

took a bus here from the airport on a sunday, had to walk the last mile and a half, sheer torture.
finally got there and two guys said hello, told them i came from orlando for their beer, they took pitty on me and answered my quest for pliny and damnation
it was a tough being in there, i had little time, normally in a place like this i would have spent close to $50-75 but i was on strict budget and time. do you understand what i;m saying, i was so pressed for time i couldn;t look at anything.
the guy got me the beers, double bagged it for me and i was ready to walk again, this time for 6 miles. good god. only did it for the pliny and damnation, never again.
place is on my list for next time if i have a car.

This used to be my go to beer store. I find that it is very hit and miss, some weeks I go in and they have a ton of items that I want, other weeks I got in and they seem to have nothing of interest. They do have a large selection. The staff are generally helpful. They don't tend to get many rare items, and not a lot of the Lost Abbey items. Overall very reliable and with a pretty good selection just nothing that will blow you away or get you all giddy.

They do have a great alcohol selection though so there is definitely some other interesting things that can be found/had while you are there.

It's just as the name implies, it's a warehouse with a lot of beverages. The wall of beer has the lineups from most companies you'd think to see in So. Cal. Rogue, Lagunitas, Stone, etc. A great selection of Belgian, English and German beers.

The row of boxes opposite the beer wall has some finds if you dig through them, I spotted several beers that i had never seen anywhere else. I also found myself a St. Bernardus gift pack that was really nice.

The staff was just there to check people out, I didn't get the impression that they were there to answer many questions. However, I don't mind that as i usually don't find the need to ask clerks questions about beer.

A definite stop in the unfortunate event that I find myself on the 405 in that area again.

Big place with lots of beer that's nicely displayed. But keeping all of it out in the warm CA air seems a recipe for bad beer; especially given the weather they had the week I was there. I did pick up a few IPAs in the past that seemed faded due to those conditions. But I still stop by when I fly in and out of LAX.
