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.

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 Angelís 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!
