I finally got to stop by here. This place is in an unassuming strip mall at the end and a little of the main street, behind corner of Pierre and Valley. Make sure you don't go to the liquor store next to the Chevron station. Go behind the Chevron about 40 yards and it's on the right side.
As you walk in, keep walking in a straight line, to the back and you'll be greeted by about 5 or 6 coolers of goodness. The very first cooler has all the great East Coast stuff. I'll list some examples.
60 min IPA
90 min IPA
Raison D'extra (note, not D'etre)
Pride and Joy
*Great Lakes Brewing---
Edmund Fitzgerald Porter
Imperial Brown Goose
XXX Imperial IPA
Yeti Oak Aged Imperial Stout
There's more but i'm getting old and just can't remember.
And some hard to get local favorites
*Port Brewing/Lost Abbey---
Santa's Little Helper
Dry Hopped St Regus Red
I talked beer with the kind lady behind the counter. She got me a box and then out of my way :)
Besides the above, you'll basically find what you need. All the usual suspects are present in addition to their seasonals ie deschutes, alesmith, green flash, fantome, cantillon, rogue, stone, port brewing/lost abbey, russian river, flying dog, unibroue, north coast, lost coast, coronado brewing, duchesse, and many more german, english, belgian, czech and other quality brews. Do yourself a favor and stop here!!!

Was in town for a wedding recently, and stopped by here based on some recommendations I got on this site. The store is your standard Liquor store, but they do have a tremendous amount of beer. Good beers too. What caught me by surprise was the fact that one whole fridge was dedicated to beers that are either hard or downright impossible to get in California. Not really sure how they pull this off - but all I can think of is that they have some kind of inside trading business going on. Knowing the little that I do about distribution, im pretty sure that they shouldnt be carrying DFH, 3 Floyds, Goose Island, Great Lakes and a few others. Beware though, you will pay handsomely for these beers. I bought a six pack of Alpha King for $14. Yikes!
Nick was very friendly and seemed somewhat knowledgeable about the beers he sells. He told me he was trying to try everything he sells. Good luck to him on that one.

This place has fast become my favorite beer store in my area. Joe is extremely friendly and welcoming. Last week I mentioned to Joe a beer I was looking for, and this week it shows up on the shelf. Great service, great selection of hard to find Belgians, RR, Founders, DFH, Germans (Uerige, Schlenkerla), and excellent local beer selection like Port Brewing and Lagunitas.
They have 12 refrigerator cases for beer, 1 of which has mostly macros. Still, 11 cases of craft beer is exceptional. All of the beer is kept in refrigerated cases and stored properly.
Service is great, quality is great, selection is great, and for many of us, the location is great. I expect to spend a lot of my beer money at Walnut Liquorette in the future. The expanded beer selection is a great addition to the IE/SGV.

first ... a big thanks for adding walnut liquorette to the beer fly so fast!
very similiar to lone hill in glendora, i am glad to be tipped off by this placed by some fellow ba's! the owner/manager of the establishment is joe and with the help of stan of lone hill, walnut liquorette is fastly putting it's mark as the place to find good brew.
this is the second location in so-cal near me where i've been able to find dogfish head, fff, and great lakes. an excellent selection of victory products with a little twist - joe sells them as individual bottles. so, you are free to grab a variety of bottles such as hop wallop, hop devil, and prima pils. the per bottle price is on par with an average 6pk price of other locations who carry victory.
other goodies include, russian river, lost abbey/pizza port, moylan's, and avery. all bombers. with the current release of avery maharaja, walnut liquorette has been the cheapest i've seen. in addition, there are a few doors stocked with belgians and other imports. this place just has a grand selection that will make any beer advocate's mouth water.
the location of walnut liquorette is not too far away from the 60/57 interchange which it makes it pretty close from the southern inland empire and northern orange county. a pure gem if your are located in the san gabriel valley and/or southeastern la county.
basically, for those who love lone hill, you'll love walnut liquorette just as much. it can come down to just which location is closer to you. but, i will say, this success of location will be due to people like us. the store is located in a bedroom community with not much traffic, meaning, no shopping center or large grocery store that will provide residual traffic. joe, being a fan of good brew, has expanded his selection quite slowly. but, the average person who lives near his place has no clue what all these goodies on the shelves are. so, if this place is near you are just happen to be in this area, stop in and grab a few bottles and even strike up a great beer conversation with joe. you'll be glad you did!
