Small stereotypical looking liquor store that is anything but typical! Once you walk inside you quickly realize Mr K’s is a serious beer geek’s bottle shop. The selection is super extensive and is a great spot for SoCal beers, as well as other random and hard to find breweries. I don’t say this lightly, but visiting Mr K’s is starting to become more of a highlight than visiting the Bruery’s tasting room nearby.

Great bottleshop. I respect the business sense of setting up with great craft beer in front of The Bruery. They got all kinds of great shelf beers, so more uncommon stuff and some the rare stuff stuff while it lasts.

Been coming here for awhile now and wish I started sooner. Mike really knows how to run a shop and make his customers feel welcomed. If you are going to make a stop at The Bruery make sure you embrace all that is Mr. K's, you won't be disappointed.

Visited this place before going into the Bruery as they are right around the corner from each other. This store has a very impressive selection of beer, lots of craft, imports and macros. They have both refrigerated and dry beers. Prices were a little higher than what I pay for at my local bottle shops and some of the higher end stuff was not priced but when you operate on a budget price is very important (I operate on a limited beer budget). Don't live in the area but this place would be worthy of weekly visit. Definitely a place to stop by if you love good beer.

Traveled to SoCal from Ohio on business. Went to visit The Bruery. Was told to go here to find a nice selection of excellent hard to find SoCal beers. IMO one of the best craft beer selections I have seen. Wish I had a store like this near where I live in Ohio.

This place is located right at the entrance of the street to the Bruery. From the outside, it seems like a small liquor store, but once inside you'll see lots of solid craft beers in coolers to the side, and some on the shelves in the middle.

I thought the selection per square feet of this smallish bottle shop was really high-end. I saw the typical SoCal distro beers, but also some harder to find stuff.

For those in the area and interested in craft beers, this is a nice shop to visit.

If I lived closer, this would be one of my regulars.

Update - 1/4/2015: I visited Mr. K's again today. For a shop of this size, they had a fantastic selection.
