This is among my favorite beer places of all time. Great selection, exceptional service. I invested in a relationship with the manager (Mike) which pays off every time I go to Bradleys. I ask questions, I get answers. I ask for recommendations, Mike is almost as excited as I am to hear what I like and share his thoughts. He posts new arrivals on Facebook every week and it is a mad rush to get there before he is sold out. It is not often I get to patronize a Socal version of a bottle shop with such a committed manager. I don’t need any more competition for limited quantities but this is such an great place that it would be selfish not to share.

Across the street from Tustin Brewing. All the beer is in coolers, which is nice. Some somewhat obscure bottles like Aztec Brewing (didn’t even know they bottled) and a few other San Diego breweries. Mostly southern California stuff, but a few of the standard Belgian imports. Mostly 22s/750s and six packs, I don’t think I saw any single 12 oz bottles. Pretty decent pricing, too.
