Pretty decent selection in this little liquor store, but be careful, the owners realize the whole rare beer/Ebay connection and will randomly hike the prices way up when they get rare beers in. OK if your in the area, but drive a little and you’ll be rewarded.
EDIT: I have since visited this place several times and have been consistently surprised about how great the selection has become. The owner, Freddie, is sarcastic as all get out, but once you understand that and play along with it, it’s all good.

Two brothers own this and Windy-City liquor. Windy City has better selection, but both places are good place to stop on the way to Alpine. One on the way up, and the other on the way back. They have 2004 Samiclaus, and great selection of locals.

It’s a liquor store w/ some very good humored staff. I asked to buy some bottles of Victory, bottles. All they had were six packs. They just laughed at me. I don’t think anyone in SO-CAL understands the value of have a bottle shop. Anyway, they had a few doors cold full of brews. Not alot but what they did have was outstanding. I did leave with a bottle of Victory 12.

Very cool place close to my home. You can get a lot of Favorites, like Stone, Alpine, Avery, Lost Abbys, and Alesmith. The owner usually the guy on the phone is very helpful and has tried most of the beers he has, and can give you an opinion. Check regullary, he seems to have something new and different every week. Freddy you deserve the 100 % for all the years of loyalty to the Santee Crew! Fordest, Toncatcher and myself appreciate having one of the greatest beer stores in the county in our own backyard.

Best place to get beer in Santee. Maybe the best in East County. Owner is a great guy that will try to get what you want. One of the few places besides the brewery to get Pure Hoppiness. A few Belgians and Lost Abbey, and Port and all the other standard expected craft beer.
