I'm from the east coast and was in HB visiting family. Without a car, I was limited in which stores i hit up, but saw the positive reviews for this place so it was an easy decision. This is a solid store with some easy-going guys working there. The selection of craft beer isn't massive, necessarily, BUT it is all quality stuff. They had some RR in the back and release a limited quantity of the bottles they have...and having never had PtE or Supplication before, i massively appreciated this!! (picked up a bottle of each).

Don't have a lot to compare it to in the greater LA area, but this is a sweet store in a sweet neighborhood.

I stopped in while exploring the local LA beer scene. It's a small shop with a limited beer selection but what they have is solid. I picked up a Velvet Merkin and a W00tStout v2 so I left very happy. Seems like this place could vary based on their supply but if it's always as good as I found, it's well worth a visit.

oceanview is a very unassuming liquor store between hermosa and manhattan beach. from the outside it looks like every other liquor store you've probably been to. but when you go inside it's a different story. that's when you discover it's not your average liquor store anymore.

before you even get to the back cooler you will find an aisle to your left with the new craft beers that they have recently got in. last time i went i found pepe nero, abacus, and much more. once you get to the back coolers you'll find a little more. stuff like lost abbey, ballast point, firestone walker, goose island, stone, russian river and others.

if you don't see what you want just ask, they might just surprise you. the employees are easy to talk to and are helpful. everything you'd expect form a store to close to the beach. this store has quickly become one of my regular beer stops in the westside.

This is a nice little beach city liquor store that stocks some pretty impressive stuff, they have two or three fridges in the back for craft brews, not the hugest of selections, but all quality beer.

The man running the store when i stopped by was Kurt, he was both friendly and knowledgeable. We talked shop for a bit, discussing beers we'd had, or always wanted to try, and during the conversation he was taking notes on some of the beers he plans to stock in the future.

If you're ever in the Manhattan Beach area, check them out, i have a feeling their selection will keep improving as time goes on
