Growing up in the area and then on my subsequent trips back for holidays and other random returns, Iíve probably walked by this place 100 times. I finally stopped in because someone added it to RateBeer.

The store is probably 95% wine and spirits, but there is some beer here, almost all in the portable cooler. The beer selection here is kind of small, but the quality is pretty solid. A lot of Bruery, Jolly Pumpkin, AleSmith, Firestone, and Goose Island. A handful of special releases in the mix, so thatís kind of neat. Prices are on the higher side, particularly for the special stuff.

There is a little tasting bar in the back as well, though there was nothing going on while I was there.

This is an interesting place. First off, itís right on the strip on Burlingame Ave. The rent has to be pretty high here. Secondly, they have a tasting bar in the back, or so it would seem. I walked in there and there were two people (presumably customers) sitting at one of the tables without drinks and with a box of pizza. Maybe they donít serve drinks before a certain time (I was there around 4pm) but there were no employees to be found in that section of the store. Actually, the only employee that I saw at all (including at the register) was a guy stocking shelves.

The store is mostly dedicated to wine, as the name would imply. The beer is all contained within a couple of fridges near the back, opposite the bar area. I counted four doors with beer in them. Ecclectic assortment in my opinion. Midnight Sun XXX Black IPA, all of the Bear Republic Racers (V, X, Cafe 15, and Black), several Evil Twin beers, some Ruhstaller, and Firestone XVII. This is all in addition to some Belgian greats like Chimay Blue, Orval, Rodenbach Grand Cru, St Bernardus 12, oaked La Trappe, and St Feullien Saison. The prices were actually pretty reasonable on everything. If it wasnít the middle of the holiday season I would have stayed longer and bought some things but as it was I was ready to get the hell out of there. Iíll likely be back at some point, maybe a quick stop while taking Cal Train to/from SF since this is walking distance from the station.

Pretty sure these guys ship as well. The employee stocking shelves was putting orders together at the same time.
