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 I’m 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 it’s 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 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.

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 I’ve never heard of. Didn’t 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 I’d come back despite being a little light on the 6 packs, more bomber focused.

En plein centre-ville avec une sélection locale et importée assez spectaculaire. Les prix sont un peu plus élevés que la moyenne à SoCal mais c’est possible de récolter des trucs plus difficile ailleurs. Bonne sélection dans les frigo.
