This Trader Joe's is right on the way home from work for me and that makes it very convenient when I want to pick up some of my usual stand-by beers. It's located in a small strip mall on the southeast corner of Huntington Drive and Rosemead Blvd next to a pet store.
Home to the (in)famous Two-buck Chuck Charles Shaw wines, Trader Joe's specializes in having an eclectic mix of foods, and the beer and wine selection is no different. Beers range from $4 for a six-pack to $6.99 for a 22oz bottle of Chimay Grand Reserve. Some of the more notable beers to be found are Young's Double Chocolate Stout, the three Chimays, Duvel Rood, the full line of Mendocino Brewing Co. beers, DFH's Shelter Pale Ale and 60 Minute IPA, Franziskaner hefeweizen, Sonora Inebriator stout, Spaten Optimator, Full Sail's Rip Curl, Amber, and Pale Ale, and Lindeman's Framboise and Peche, and some Sam Smith's offerings. They also offer a decent variety of European pilseners and lagers. Recently, they've started carrying Univroue's Maudite and Blanch de Chambly.
The service is usually pretty good. The staff allows breaking up of six-packs which I really like, as I'd rather buy a single to sample to determine if the beer rates my buying a six-pack or more. The staff are also courteous and usually they're appreciative of someone buying good beer.
I make this store a pretty regular stop and like the range of beers they carry. I usually can find something good at TJ's.
