This is an average Bevmo in terms of selection. As expected they have a large San Diego selection. There were cases stacked up of Mission, St Archer, Lost Abbey, Karl Strauss, and some of the Temecula breweries like Aftershock and Black Market. Beyond that they have some of the usual imports, a few glasses, and the usual half assed cheese selection. Nothing wrong with Bevmo but itís really only for the well known beers since you can get them cheaper. Itís also right near the new Green Flash so itís kind of surprising that it doesnít get more traffic from beer nerds.

This store opened semi recently (a couple years ago), and was my goto beer store for more than a year (used to live across the street).
I still stop by from time to time whenever I pass by Mira Mesa to see what I can find here.
The prices are standard BevMo prices which are generally speaking pretty good. They get some of the rare stuff, but since this is a semi-high traffic area, Iíd just call in advance to make sure they set something aside for you if you want it.
They have a pretty good San Diego craft representation. All the usual AleSmith, Stone, Ballast Point, etc etc. My main gripe would be that they donít get Russian River.
Theyíll get all the wider distro rare stuff though. Iíve picked up Lost Abbey Angels share here at reasonable prices. They usually get a case of Utopias every year (6 bottles), so just be on the ball with calling them if you want that.
The service is just whatever. I mean, the staff are really nice, but Iíll be honest, among the 4-5 guys Iíve talked to there, none of them have any deep knowledge of the SD craft beer scene at all.
