Bumped into this one by accident, what a luck! Lots of nice brews from both abroad and the US. Lots of high quality beers, and of course some not so great. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Most certainly a store I could visit on a regular basis if I lived in the area.

Chick beer store. A lot to choose from. Kind of pricey. Nice clean hole in the wall. Check it out.

Small store just loaded with great beers. The staff person was attentive and seemed to have a good knowledge of microbrews. I stopped by to check on some beer bytemesis told me about and ended up buying too many things and seeing a bunch more I would have liked but could not afford to go overboard on.

Great dedicated bottle shop. Lots of South Bay and CA locals as well as US craft (jester king, pretty things). Good European selection and glassware. Small but crammed and obviously driven. Prices ok for a specialty bottle shop. Reminds me of City Beer without the bar.

Great little (and I do mean little) Beer Store. Excellent, growing selection. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. They give great recommendations. Very respectable selection of California and West Coast Brews, but no Russian River :-( A good number of Euro brews . . . Belgians, Germans, Austrians, Lot’s of Mikkeller.

It’s a very small store in the Castro St. area. Because of this they aren’t wasting any time with macros. They are stocking better, more interesting stuff. Price is competitive I think.

Selection is not huge, but it is interesting, and it is growing daily. Nice location, nice atmosphere, very knowledgable staff. A winner in my book. Edit - selection continues to grow, including some stuff that is hard to find elsewhere. They carry a good selection of local craft beers, and will break sixers to sell you a single, something that came in very handy for a recent trade. Update - they continue to do a good job of getting distro, but prices are getting to be a bit out of hand compared to other stores in the area. They also have a bit of an unusual way to deal with the truly rare releases (like Cantillon) - they lottery off the right to purchase the bottles, limit one. Prevents the hoarders from taking the place over, for sure, but be a bit wary that the price is not revealed until you win, and you will pay for the bottle ($40 for a St. Lam, for example)
