Visited on 02/02/15 to fill up with gas after Aptos BBQ. Gas station come grocery store with a solid range of beers at fair prices. Would love a gas station in the UK where I can just rock up and grab some bottles of Alpine ! A really good selection of beer on offer and I picked up half a dozen new ticks ... would probably have got more but for no Wi-Fi to check for rates! Good fast service at the tills. A solid option if in the area.

I found 7 beers new to me - bombers. Some local to the store, some from the NW and my own area. These guys arenít fooliní around. Itís right off Highway 1. No reason not to take the exit!

Unpretentious gas station store with a pretty solid beer selection. Very much self serve, but the choice is there and the prices are decent. Not worth going out of your way, but definitely worthy.

Stopped in here for gas and, naturally, to pick up some beers. The selection is quite solid, with a strong showing of CA breweries, along with other US stuff and some imports. I thought the pricing was fair. Good service - one guy offered to give me any help with the beers, and I asked him if he wouldnít mind breaking a six-pack so I could just buy a single bottle; he obliged and priced the single for me, which I thought was awesome. Overall, not a must-visit destination, but a great option if you want to get gas and beer in one go.

Nice little market attached to a gas station in the Santa Cruz-Aptos-Capitola-Soquel corridor, just off 101. Some nice food aisles and a beer aisle at the end, crowded but full of good stuff. Prices arenít too bad for the area, and there are some good finds to be had. Of course, my group didnít need any bottles because of the hundreds we had back in the hotel room, but that didnít stop the rest of them from loading up. The checkout line gets long but they keep it moving fast. Good place.

Surprisingly little spot attached to a gas station. Selection is not huge, but what they have is impressive with lots of imports and fun stuff. Pricing is OK and being a convenience store help wasnít really an option. A neat spot that gave us some good beers for the evening.

pretty small little convenience store type place but a solid selection. noticed a lot of Mikkeller beers, some local stuff, 3 Fonteinen, and lots of hoppy beers. Didnít seem to be anything to crazy as far as pricing goes, all pretty normal. definitely worth a stop if youíre in the area.

Visited June 8, 2013.

I wasnt expecting much from a gas station convenience store and I was pleasantly surprised. We stopped in for gas and snacks mostly after leaving Sante Adairius. I found some neat beers there including a bunch of Mikkeller and some Anchorage beers in addition to the rest of the usuals. Prices were about "right" for the expensive brands like Mikkeller. I was tempted to pick up a few things that hadnt made it to LA yet but I didnít want these hoppy beers to sit in the car all day.

This place its a real hidden gem. Not a huge selection, but very high impact value, and the prices are amazing - we are talking city beer good; better than anything in the south bay. Golden blend for $21? Awesome.

Itís a gas station convenience store that has one of the better - and arguably the freshest - selection of beers in greater Santa Cruz. Tilted towards the IPA side of the fence, a few belgians and others. Some better food, but itís a convenience store. With nerd beer.
