Massive store with a huge selection of craft beer. Warehouse feel to the place and not much in the way of service, but if you have time to peruse and look through all the beer, you may stumble upon a gem or three.

Prices are standard, parking lot is big, easy to be in and out.

This place is the bomb ! I would recommend this place to the serious beer drinker. The selection is great and there is a lot of cold beer is the wall to wall coolers. I am ashamed to say that this place has been open for two years and I had to wait till I was in the neighborhood of the nearest BevMo or Total Wines to get this selection. There is much more cold crafts on hand then the other places. If you love your Tequilas, Whiskies or other type of liquors, this place will also be up your alley. Oh, they have a decent selection of good cigars also. Very worthy of a visit if your near the old Sears building in East Los. I understand the other Ramirez locations are very well stocked. I am now a faithful customer since I discovered this place. A big "Orale" to the Ramirez family to bring such a selection to our area.

This is the newest store for Ramirez and it's a huge warehouse of booze. The beer is both in coolers and warm on the shelf. They have an amazing selection that includes beers that I have never seen sold elsewhere. The service is pretty good but you need to go ask for help if you need it.

Size of bevmo but closer to downtown area and East LA as many know not much options. That being said this store outdoes may of the competition and is a great place to shop in. Once you enter you are overwhelmed with all the options to choose from. Not only is it a craft beer palalce it is also a great place to get liquor. With prices being probably the best around it has something for everyone.

Definitely will be dropping by often since i live in the area

Southeast of downtown Los Angeles is among one of the last places in the city where I could expect an establishment that any beer lover needs to stop. Ramirez Beverage Center lives up to its name; it is a beverage center for beer, wine, spirits, and soft drinks. Parking is plentiful, but take a deep breathe before you walk through those doors.....

WOW!!!! Not only large, but very clean, well organized, and easy to get around. With low sitting aisles, you can see across the store and spot with your eyes from the beer glasses or whisky or whatever you are thinking of buying. Among beverages, beer is among the first I think about, and this establishment delivers in spades. A long line of refrigerators rest on one side of the store filled with beer, plus an extra aisle on the floor dedicated to more beer, and near the restroom is a small rack of sour ales.

The beer selection is honestly one of the best I have seen at any store in California. Not only the variety that's available, but special releases and beers you won't find at BevMo or Total Wine. Lots of cold Stone bottles and many of their special release projects, just for starters. Central City, Kronenbourg Blanc, Piraat Triple Hop, Cascade, Hanseens, Caracole, Habanero Sculpin, Belching Beaver, lots of Cismontane bottles, (deep breath) Krusovice, Ayinger, Boulder. Geez, and I haven't even gotten to the extensive range of glassware for sale! More amazing, I could not find a dusty or tired bottle. Prices are listed for a majority of the beers, while others will leave you guessing of a price (which overall are middle of the pack).

Without a doubt, Ramirez Beverage Center is a must stop in Los Angeles.

Have been going to Ramirez Liquor on Soto early on when I was getting into craft beer. This new location is insane. Imagine a store the size of a Bevmo but had a huge focus on local craft beer. They do have some Macro beers but kept close to the entrance where those people can walk in a get out in a hurry.

There is a huge are of craft beer including a long wall of coolers. they do have some beer on the shelves but probably due to how much beer they have.

good selection of Almanac, Cascade, with some special beers hidden.

TIP: if you are looking for Russian River, Beachwood, ask for it or look on the bottom of the coolers. sometimes they hide it
