Decided to do a little driving while in the area for the Beachwood Sour Fest. Hit up this place, just a normal exterior liquor store in not so beautiful Long Beach.

Bright store, cute tall skinny girl behind the counter. Nobody else inside. Stone display. Usual beers, picked up some Stone Cherry Chocolate Stouts, some Telegraph cork & caged stuff. Nothing else really piqued my interest, I had picked up a lot of their good stuff elsewhere already on my trip.

So I bring $30+ worth of beer to the register, pay for it. Really needed to use the bathroom, so I asked to use it before I left. "I'm sorry, restrooms not available for the public." I'm not the 'public' I'm a customer. No dice.

Decent place, shitty service. Use the restroom before you go.

Lots of good beers here. No prices listed, lots of good liquor too. Open late, great stop on way home from work. Lots of cold beer too.

Not a big fan of the constant hyping on Facebook and instagram and twitter, especially when your bottle limit is 1.

Why aren't prices listed on the bottle? The guy at the register didn't want to do a price check, he just told me it was a really good deal-Not

Finally made it to this off the beaten track spot in Long Beach. Decent place that basically looks like your run of the mill liquor store. It seems to have a decent stock but one can easily be fooled in that what appears to be large stock is really multiple rows and/or displays of the same bottle, be it beer or spirits. Still, decent stock.

This is likely a wonderful local shop for Long Beach but has certainly not kept up with the variety selection of the major shops of Southern California such that I suspect most of the very high ratings would be lower in today's world where several stores in Southern California far exceed selection.

Nice staff and worth a trip if in the area. I saw nothing that could not be obtained in dozens of other places around the general Southern California/Los Angeles area. By today's standards with the growing beer craze, this store is very good, at best, it is not world class. Conclusion: not worth a long drive or going out of your way.

Always a good selection of high end beers here. Plus, I found a bottle of Elijah Crag 21yr on their shelf!
