Visited on way back from Alpine. Met the cheerful Freddy who definitely is a character in itself. Plenty of CA beers, even single bottles, lots of 22oz and some rare limited gems. I even ordered extra bottles, Freddy packed it all with me and he showed me the fedex bill and shipping system. Charges are more than fair. Thanks for the share of Port Brewing3rd anniversary. I would have stayed a lot longer to chat with him. Prices are more than fair, though some prices vary from store to store. Selection had all the CA beer someone from the East coast would love to have + some hidden gems that Freddy is not displaying.

Perfect score. Everytime I order I get an instant response by phone. My beer ships right away. Freddy is the best. The only place to order from.

I make the 15 minute trip every couple of weeks, or when Freddy has told me something special will be there. Like Consecration this week. He enjoys talking with beer drinkers, and itís fun to watch the Santee Budweiser buyers stare at the rarities like theyíre two-headed frogs. Great selection. Lots of 12oz bottles for singles, which is a nice touch. Overall the trip over the hill gets shorter when I know thereís a gem waiting. Itís pretty easy to drop a bill here.

My friend and I decided to visit this store on a whim, trying to look for a harder to find seasonal brew. We were more than pleasantly surprised to find out that not only was this beer in stock, Fred went out of his way to give us a tour around the store, tell us his war stories, give us his angles on beers that we were looking for and we should try, and turned our visit something much more memorable and very educational. Beverages4Less is not a liquor store nor is it BevMo. Liquor stores have a face behind the counter, ring up your six pack of Natty Ice, and cash your lottery ticket. Fred is very passionate about beer and his business and truly does what he loves. Even if I can find the írareí stuff for cheaper, going out of my way into Santee to visit Fred is something I will always look forward to. First impressions are very important and he has most certainly turned me into a life-long customer.

Havesome history now. Had to update the rating. Fred really goes out of his way to make things work. *** Freddy is on top of it. My shipment was ordered early Friday and arrived Wednesday. Actually arrived Tuesday, but no one was home! Hard to beat that. Excellent green packing. Highly recommended.

Ordered on line. Spoke with Freddy, very nice guy and super service. I was able to get ahold of him at all sorts of times when I would not expect to be able to. Wish I would have read here first, he said he was out of Hair of the Dog Fred from the Wood. If he was holding out I would have pleaded some more, maybe next time. Many things available I have no chance of getting out here out east. 3 bottles of Abyss, Old Numbskull, Wee Heavy and an Alaskan Barleywine(In place of FFTW). "Boxing" fee is about my only complaint, but it sounds like a one man operation, so I guess he has to get something for his time. Well packaged.

Guy was pretty cool, had a pretty damn good selection and was quite helpful. Started talking to him about who had a better selection between him and Joey (South Bay Drug and Liquor)......funny stuff.

My new go-to beer store. Selection is unbelievable and only rivaled by Holiday Wine Cellar. Freddy is the man. Knows his beer, and always has the hook-up for hard to find stuff. Teases you with the Angelsí Share up front and other that are not for sale, but what is for sale more than makes up for it. Biggest selection of Alpine in town. A weekly destination.

Freddy is the KING! Iím so happy to have discovered Beverages 4 Less. Definitely one of the best beer stores in San Diego (if not the best!). Freddy puts customer service first and image 2nd. Looking for a hard to find beer? Freddy will do his best to find it for you. I was in the other day looking for the 2008 GG batch of Flying Dog Double Dog. In a second he made a phone call and had it in stock the very next day! He has some hidden gems tucked away so itís worth the trip! For instance I was able to score a Port Brewing Serpents Stout a few months ago. Everyone else was sold out. Not Freddy! Pliny The Elder? Other locations here in San Diego are sold out. Not Freddy!
