Meet Moe Salamh of Craft Beer Kings in El Monte

Today we’d like to introduce you to Moe Salamh.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Fun Fact, our very first brick and mortar store was located in the suburb of Baldwin Park right across from the very first In-In-Out location. It was always a sweet treat to crack open a tasty IPA with a double and animal style fires. Our love for beer, more specifically craft beer grew as we got involved in the craft beer community. They are so welcoming, friendly, and generous with sharing their personal collection/cellar. We had only had one shelf dedicated to craft beer, I believe we carried the legendary Arrogant Bastard and Stone IPA. Slowly but surely, we began to expand and add a larger variety to our collection. As the demand increased, we decided it was time to expand. That is when opened our second location in El Monte. Today, our El Monte location is home to thousands of beers from all around the world. It is also absolute heaven to beer enthusiasts! Through our website,, we are able to spread the cheers across the U.S, and a few countries. We are so blessed to do something that we love and share it with the community.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has been a smooth journey thus far. The beer community has been great to us over the years!

Craft Beer Kings – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Based in the Greater Los Angeles area, Craft Beer Kings specializes in craft beer, wine, and cigars. One of the original craft beer stores online, we’ve perfected online beer buying and delivery.

I think what sets us apart from other stores is our ability to acquire really interesting beers from all around the globe. Beer is life for us, literally.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Personally for me success is measured by consistency. The ability to keep doing what you love on a daily basis.
