Made my first trip down to Stearns Liquor today and was extremely impressed. I called ahead to see if they had any Abacus left, as I had heard they had gotten quite an allotment, and was told they had sold out. I told them I would come down anyways because I had heard good things. When I got there, Danny, the owner, was waiting for me with an Abacus that he had scared up. The rest of the selection was exceptional as well-Alpine, RR, Drakes, Port, Lost Abbey, Bruery etc. were all well-stocked. Plenty of good sours and stouts. Everything was refrigerated except for a few big stouts which were shelved right next to the beer fridges. Danny was more than happy to stand there and talk beer with me for a few minutes, and made some great recommendations. I look forward to hitting Stearns Liquor again sometime soon.

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!
