This is one of the best stores in the city and it's sort of a hidden gem. The neighborhood is East L.A. which is getting more and more re-gentrified daily. It is a very mixed population and no longer the "bad neighborhood" of years past.
This place has one of the best selections of tequila anywhere...period! Bottles go from modest to many hundreds of dollars and there are, literally, hundreds of different bottles.
In speaking with the owner (the son...Alex) who took over from his mother he got into beer by accident. Now, he prides himself on his knowledge and his never ceasing efforts to provide more and more diverse choices. He's doing a great job.
Stop in. No, it doesn't have the biggest selection in town but it's a great selection and you almost always find something that you've been looking to try. Also, every now and then you can find an older bottle for a real treat.
Oct 8, 2011 addition: Alex is really growing the place. More and more selections are coming in of high quality. Today, Cantillon bottles on the shelves!

Visited on 02/25/08.
Dodgy Boyle Heights neighborhood. Ambiance was typical liquor store, with displays of impossibly hot chicks enticing one to buy this or that liquor. Pretty good selection of craft beers, though nothing like the rare (to the west coast) beers found at Walnut Liquorette or Lone Hill Liquor.
One staff member was enthusiastically discussing Stone Beers (I think) with a customer in Spanish. They also have Stone T shirts for sale for $15.00 each. I couldn't find one I liked in a size I could wear, though. Oh, well...
I picked up a couple of bottles: one I had never seen before and one I hadn't seen in at least a year.
Overall, probably not worth the trip unless you're within a few blocks of the place. I'd rather drive 30+ miles to Walnut or Glendora than 8 miles here. Still, you can do a LOT worse on almost any corner in the greater LA area.

This is probably the best beer store east of downtown LA. I remember this was just a regular lotto ticket and beef jerkey store in boyle heights and it has been totally transformed into a high class liquor store with a lot of spirits and top notch beer. You'll find all the big names of California beer including Alesmith, Stone as well as Abt 12 four packs, 750ml Belgians. I'm tough to please on selection but they did have five or six coolers of thoughtfully selected beers. The young guy behind the counter even told me to tell him if I wanted him to order something because he like to please and drink new beers. Hell they had Hopdevil!
