Sid runs this shop in downtown SD. The area is pretty rough, but the shop is amazing. It is inside Super Jr. Mart. SId is very knowledgable and gets all the great releases. The customer service is unparalleled. I refer many people to his shop because he is such a great guy and his selection is insane.

Visited the store on a trip with wife early March. Had to go back a second time the day after! Selection was amazing. Micro brews were well represented (I found all the Alesmith products I was looking for!). Also found lots of rare products. Don’t look for the BDBS sign from the outside... you’ll see it when you get in. Location is not the best... Ghetto is the right word!! A must for beer lovers visiting downtown San Diego.

After hearing about this place on the SD forum, made a special trip while in town. The stories were true! From the outside, it looks like a nondescript corner store. On the inside though, is beer heaven. Not only is there a large selection of brew and floor displays of good stuff (aisle stack of Angel’s Share) they are select, top-notch craft brews. Wow! I was blown away. It was like a kid in a candy store. My eldest son and I were practically salivating and grabbing more brews than we should. Each of us grabbed at least nine bombers to ship home. Prices were reasonable, too. Highly recommend this place.

This place is called Super Jr. Market, the Best Damn Beer Shop is an adjective...and a very appropriate adjective if "in San Diego" was put after it. I cannot believe this place went under my radar for so long...its a 5 minute drive from my house. The selection beats Holiday, South Bay, and Port Bottle Shop...They had pretty much everything to be expected in this area as well as stuff that has long sold out at the other places mentioned above. They had a bunch of Alpine beers, including Duet and Pure Hoppiness which are hard to find, even in San Diego. They had Mikellar Cascade single hop IPA which I havent seen anywhere. They still had Older Viscosity and Black Butte Porter 21st anniversary...The guy put me on the mailing list and was surprisingly knowledgeable about beer. The place itself is as ghetto as ghetto can be and I contracted both Scabbies and Aids just waiting in line to pay...but the beer section was nicely displayed..some in coolers, some on shelves...but seriously, best selection in san diego!

Stopped by here when stuck downtown one night.
Its in a grocery store on the outskirts of east village and the ghetto.
Beer selection is pretty decent, lots of the west coast standards, allagash, and random craft and belgium standards. nothing i was excited to see. Pricing was pretty decent.
Service was good, but the every so common overly excited beer guy was working. seems like every new beer store is ran by one of these guys. I know you like beer, but please let me pick what i want, if i need a recommendation i will ask for one.
This place is a good start for the beer community in downtown, but still nowhere near what we should have downtown.

I didn’t see steview’s disclaimer until just now. It is named Super Jr. Market on the awning, and that’s what it is--a little corner store that happens to have a pretty large liquor and beer section. Nabbed the last Alpine Nelson--they were supposed to get more in the next week. Among others, lots of Alesmith, Lost Abbey, Ballast Point (including Dorado--no Sculpin @ the moment), with 80-90% of it all in coolers. Decent selection of imports, with maybe a dozen lambics, none of which were ungodly rare. Sid hooked me up with a t-shirt and stickers--seemed to know his beer very well. Super friendly guy. Prices seemed pretty reasonable, though I’d seen a number of beers a buck or two cheaper @ South Bay. Small selection of glassware. Left here quite pleased, and will definitely stop by next time I’m in town.
