Behind an unassuming glass façade on Pacific Coast Highway in Redondo Beach exists a beer lover's ultimate shopping destination. At Select Beer Store Bottle Shop and Taproom, more than 500 of the finest domestic and imported bottles of beer suggest your paycheck is burning a hole in your wallet, while 12 draft beer handles insist you grab a stool and ruminate over your purchases. Worthy events like tap takeovers make weekly visits justifiable. “Interaction is entertainment,” says owner Wes Jacobs of the TV-free bar. Don't be surprised if a bartender hands you colored chalk and requests an artful rendering of whatever beer is freshly tapped — a photo of you and your sign will alert Facebook followers to the latest offerings. Jacobs and his knowledgeable staff accommodate all levels of craft beer lover, from the newly converted to the pilgrimaging geek seeking L.A.'s finest wares. 1613 S. Pacific Coast Hwy., Redondo Beach, 90277. (310) 540-1221, selectbeerstore.com. —Erika Bolden
