Odd place in downtown SD, pretty ghetto with a lot of homeless people out front. However, once inside its a different story as they have a real nice selection at decent prices. I found a vintage Avery Beast from 2009 along with some other rare stuff in my one stop in. Donít let the exterior fool you, if you are nearby stop in and take a look.

Just got back from there and starting to sample some of the bounty provided. Most of the beer is stored to minimize fluorescent light and super easy to find - straight in from the door. Owner was working the aisles restocking and helping customers. Helped us out a lot, polite, sense of humor, and straightforward. Selection was by far mostly bomber/750s and lots of one offs. Spent some solid coin there and they recognized and gave us couple of tshirts as tokens of appreciation. Place was clean and other customers cool. Love to return.

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.

for some reason, I was expecting a boutique bottle shop when I headed for this place. It was definitely not what I expected, but nonetheless, theyíve got an impressive selection.

I am afraid some of you just donít know what Ghetto is. This is 7 blocks from my work and I decided to take a nice lunch time stroll up to see this place. Sure I passed by a few bums a few vacant windows and an occasional wiff of urine, but please tell me where in Downtown San Diego that isnít normal. I felt safer walking to this store then I do in broad daylight in downtown El Cajon. I donít get why people are so quick to call something Ghetto. Go to 12th and imperial if you want to see Ghetto. Ok, on to the review. This place is so discreet; I thought I was at the wrong place until I saw the beer shelves in the back right hand corner. What a selection! Plenty of stuff to keep you busy looking at for 30 minutes at least. I felt rush as I was on my lunch break. They have a service deli that informed me today was half off sandwich day Tue and Thur). So I ordered a nice Salami sammy that the lady cut fresh off the salami roll served on sour dough and ate it back in the office. It was great for $3. I will be back when I can buy some beer. The prices were fair, and the selection was outstanding but typical if you go to any of the hot spots in San Diego County. Bev. 4 Less, South Bay, and Holiday have all the same stuff as this place.

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.

Beer is in the side of a random convenience store. Great selection includes local San diego beers and a nice selection of Belgian and American craft beers.

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. Donít look for the BDBS sign from the outside... youíll 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.
