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.

Visited June 22, 2013.
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.

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 I’m used to.

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.

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 it’s right downtown. Rarities, locals and the all important Pliny the Elder were here. win.

It’s a good thing the beer selection here was decent, because the grocery store was pretty crappy. About half the selection was in a cooler and available as singles, the remainder was on shelves and there were definitely some things sitting around getting old. Was rather impressed with the range of lambics.

Went here to fill up the last 3 slots in my shipper before we got on the plane. Unassuming place inside a mini-mart in downtown, you might have to battle past a few bums on the way in. We were left alone while browsing which is fine with me. Great selection of beers to chose from, nothing super rare but still great. Prices seemed pretty good as well. If your downtown stop by this place.

Fantastic beer store that had alot of 22s cold and nice 6 packs. You could get alot of beers from the local area and the prices were right. Im not sure how good of a selection it has compared to other California beer stores as this is my first.

Awesome bottle shop in downtown San Diego with an extensive selection. Main girl at the counter doesn’t 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 don’t have a point of comparison locally.

A cool place downtown. In a super market! Loads of brews and great service. I came late when things were getting put away but they still showed me some stuff. Lots of European stuff.
