any good beer stores around the los feliz area??

hello, i'm new to the area and looking for more harder to find beers like aventinus. come to think of it, ive never seen just a store out here solely devoted to beer, what's up w/ that? tia

p.s. beer is food!

  1. Doesn't Silverlake Wine Co. have a selection of better beers? Or there's always Trader Joe's.

    1. yeah i'm at t.j.'s practically on a daily basis, and am looking for something different (although they have a great selection). thanks for the info about the wine store tho

      1. Cap N' Cork on Hillhurst and Prospect has a good beer selection. A little pricey.

        1. Though it's in highland park, galco's is worth a stop since their selection of beer (and soda and candy) is amazing.

          also, i've been told that the sandwiches they serve at the back are "delicious" but i don't totally trust the reporter so can't verify that aspect.

            Galco is also square in the middle of one of the best regional Mexican food corridors in LA (York). You have Huarache Azteca, the EL Pique taco truck, Antojitos Guerrero just blocks away from Galco. I can't go to Galco and not have a huarache at Huarache Azteca or an Al pastor taco at El Pique.

          2. Red Carpet out in Glendale. They have tons of booze, wine AND beer. Knowledgable, too. Also, dare I say it, the BevMo on Arroyo Seco @ the end of the 110 in Pasadena. I hate chains, but they got some good stuff.
