Wow, the selection is pretty impressive here. Lots of stuff that I enjoy as well as a ton of stuff that I have never tried. They had at least two cases of the new Fantome Extra Sour Dark on the floor. The service was pretty good too as we were asked several times if we needed help or were looking for anything in particular, though that may have been because they were closing up for the night.

large number of west coast micros with a solid import selection, most of them in a cooler, and most bottles seemingly fresh, though I was burned on some old bottles Logsdon Seizoen Bretta when I chose to stock up before leaving town the next morning.

Kind of a weird set up. Basically inside a grocery and liquor store itself. Enormous beer selection with tons of great local beers and a very impressive selection of imports as well. Lots of Belgian and Scandinavian stuff. Really good liquor selection, too. Pricing is pretty average/typical. Helpful service, too.

Visited on Monday 21/04/14 around 6pm. Solid beer shop for a downtown location. No way is there 1,000+ bottles but the total is comfortably in the hundreds maybe between 4 and 600. Plenty of CA picks, European numbers and tasty out of state breweries like HOTD and Cascade to name a few. A good amount of beers are in fridges if you require immediate refreshment. Service was so so, 2 girls behind tills, zero shop floor presence, they just sat and chatted at the tills even when there were no customers. Overall a solid bottle shop.

Located in downtown San Diego inside of Krisp with inadequate street parking unless you want to pay to be in a lot. Has kind of a health food/whole foods kind of vibe to it. The beer is in the back right corner. They had a lot of bombers and sixers in the refridgerator as well as a couple of aisles as well. The selection was top notch p, especially locals and Belgian, though I wish they had A pick six section. The prices are a bit higher than a BevMo but still better than what Iím used to.

This looks like a cheap liquor store upon entering. This changes when the beer cooler is examined. This was the best selection I had seen in the San Diego area so far. Almost everything is kept cold as well. Prices are decent, especially considering itís right downtown. Rarities, locals and the all important Pliny the Elder were here. win.

Awesome bottle shop in downtown San Diego with an extensive selection. Main girl at the counter doesnít seem to know anything about craft beer, but there is a guy in the back who deals with the beer I guess and is very helpful. Selection of lambics was surprisingly excellent as (3F, Hanssens, etc.), as well as imports (lots of Mikkeller). Prices are standard for San Diego. Definitely seems like the place to go when bottle shopping, though I donít have a point of comparison locally.

The sign outside claims to have a 1000 bottles and you believe it once you see the coolers. Almost all beers are chilled except for most of the stouts. They focus on local stuff, the number of bombers will leave you dizzy. I asked for some assistance and got some great suggestions of stuff Iíve never heard of. Didnít insult me by suggesting common stuff. The prices are fair. They do have rare bourbon and Cantillon but you are going to pay $60 for a 750 or $30 or 375. A little much for me, but what was the last time you say Cantillon on the shelf? If I was downtown Iíd come back despite being a little light on the 6 packs, more bomber focused.

Superb! Tons of beer. Awesome service. Really a fun place. Warning, walking in this neighborhood at night can be iffy!

Alright, oddly opened front space showing off all of the produce and such right at the sidewalk in this semi sketchy part of downtown. So I start winding through the short aisles of beer and along the long beer filled cooler. This is another place with a terrific selection. I could go nuts in here. Oh no. Thereís a short barleywine aisle. Well that makes it easy, I love this. I grabbed five that are new to me (and sweet baby jesus it is hard to find new barleywines to try) and left behind a few that were close to or over $20 to keep the budget under control. They also have other big well aging styles grouped together. I could easily blow through a bunch of cash here and aside from the empty wallet afterward be happy as hell about the selection. If youíre downtown and already riding the trolley you may as well head over here as it will be worth the trip. God thereís a lot of good stuff here.
