A veritable "kid in a candy store" kind of place for beer lovers.
They have everything and at very reasonable prices. Beers I read about here on BeerAdvocate that I wanted to try I found at Beverage Warehouse (Arrogant Bastard and Hop Rod bombers fer instance). If you live in West Los Angeles and want to find the best selection of beers, you cannot go wrong at Beverage Warehouse. My only gripe? Most of the beer is room temp. so you have to wait while your tasty purchases chill in the fridge. Unless you're getting a keg, those are always nicely chilled. Probably the best keg prices around the area, got a half barrel of Anchor Steam for $125 there last year.

The Beverage Warehouse, henceforth BW, probably boasts the largest beer selection of any liquor store on the Westside. That said, said variety is not actually that great -- I would estimate it at a 150 or so (a solid portion of it typical macro stuff) -- nor that unique. Most offerings are easily found at nearby venues (e.g. the Wine House, Whole Foods or Bristol Farms) and at fairly comparable rates (but note below). The usual California brews/breweries (Stone, AleSmith, SN, Anchor, Moylan's, Bear Republic, etc.) are well attested and reasonably priced -- and there is an ok to decent smattering of German fare (Ayinger, Paulaner, Allgäuer) -- but "extra-Californian" domestics are few and far between (a few Rogues, some Victory, DFH and Ommegang) and the Belgian selection is a whit inferior to that found in, say, the Wine House or even the more recently constructed Whole Foods stores. (Great draw of Unibroue products, though). Where BW does make a niche for itself is probably with its Baltic porters (only Saku and Okocim), a style not othwerise found on the Westside, as far as I've been able to make out. Pricing, on the whole, is fair, with a good number of bombers coming in anywhere from $.20 to $.30 cheaper than elsewhere, six packs $.50 to $1.00.

i've been going to this place for awhile now since it is just 5 mins away from my parents house. hidden away from the main street next to a residential area.
they have a wide selection of beer, wine, and alcohol. they carry stuff that you wouldn't find at regular liquor or grocery stores. all of their products are organized and displayed in an easy to find order.
the beer section is extensive. they carry the usual popular market beers, but also carry craft brews and have a large european selection. i usually get my alesmith, russian river, rogue, rochefort, or great divide beers here. the only downer to this place is that they usually don't get the hard to find craft brews. i also love getting my beer glasses here. you can get steins, duvel tulips, yards, and pilsners.
the staff is knowledgeable. but don't except them to go up to you. you have to hunt them down for help. but once you get them they are helpful.
overall, this is a place where you can fulfill most of your craft beer needs.

Once I found the place (based upon recommendations on BA), I go back regularly. Overall a great liquor store. Buy all my liquor here, unless CVS/RiteAid have a save. On to beer...
The selection is good. Doesn't change a lot, so you can count on certain beers being there. They always have seasonal selections at good prices. I would love more choices, but don't complain about what they have. Some beers are available as singles, which is nice for a try.
I've never needed or asked for help with the beer itself. The staff is friendly and helpful at the checkout.
Definitely my default store for a real beer run.

took a bus here from the airport on a sunday, had to walk the last mile and a half, sheer torture.
finally got there and two guys said hello, told them i came from orlando for their beer, they took pitty on me and answered my quest for pliny and damnation
it was a tough being in there, i had little time, normally in a place like this i would have spent close to $50-75 but i was on strict budget and time. do you understand what i;m saying, i was so pressed for time i couldn;t look at anything.
the guy got me the beers, double bagged it for me and i was ready to walk again, this time for 6 miles. good god. only did it for the pliny and damnation, never again.
place is on my list for next time if i have a car.

I love this place! Great selection of beers from the US and international. You can always trust that they'll have the new releases and a huge selection of bombers and sixers. They dont really have 12ers but thats not a problem. This place is sort of hidden in an off the beaten path strip mall. When you find it you'll be pleasantly surprised. My one beef would be that I wish they stayed open a little later on weekdays b/c I cant get there before 6pm from work.
Nice selection of wine and spirits too!

Oh man, a review already mentioned this, but this place is the proverbial "kid in a candy store". Just go to the website and take a look at the selection. I mean, they have a lot of beers.
It has the usual california fare: Stone, Sierra Nevada, Bear Repub, and some alesmith, plus a few Rogues (Shakespeare Stout) plus beers from around the world including Chiamays, La Fin Du Monde, Duvel, Paulaner, St. Bernardus. As you can see its got some really great stuff.
The thing I don't like is that it's a Warhouse (they weren't kidding) so nothing is refridgerated. So therefore you can't really be sure of any freshness because quite simply, they have so much stuff. So be wary of some of those bottles. But getting past that, it truly is a wonderful place and one of my favorite places to be. If you live anywhere near the area, check this place out.

I hate to say good things about this place, because it's MY little secret shop. I have found on of my favorite beers there and they always have it. It has gotten a very high rating on this website, but I don't want to say what it is... I don't want it to start disappearing before I get there. Hehehe.... I can't say enough GREAT stuff about this place. I was just there yesterday and it really is Disney Land for Adults... You should really stop by, but stay away from MY beer... For the price, I find it a GREAT deal. You will not be disappointed.
