Easily one of the better places to shop beer in the city of Monterey. Itís close to all the local attractions and everyone behind the counter knows what theyíre talking about. Huge beer selection, and the staff can point you in any direction you wish to help you make the selection for your beer!

Pretty good bottle shop with lots of imported Belgians and small locals.

What stood out at this place was the ample selection of Belgian beers. Girardin Black Label, Malhuer, ext. Prices were on par, or a little less than a Whole Foods. I did not interact with any employees, but the man behind the register seemed friendly as he talked to the other customers in the store.

BMan wants more local offerings, sadly there are no local breweries.
Picked up a collection of Port beers on this visit. This is easily the best place for beer in Monterey County. There are actually beers here that I canít find in Santa Rosa (Fantome?)

Good selection of both domestic, and belgians. Pizza Port, Lost Abbey, are here in a good variety. No Russian River, Alesmith. Owner was very helpful. Most likely the best selection youíll find in the region. Prices seem to be about right.

Large Assortment of quality Beers. Semi high priced. Possibly the largest (if not the only) selection of Belgium Ales in the southern Monterey Bay. Also sells a variety of wines and cigars. Little higher priced than other beer sellers.

A lot of beer is available here. Not much help from staff. The selection is not all about quality and thereís plenty of macro and pseudo macro stuff but plenty of good choices as well. Green Flash was the ticket on our visit. Right up from the aquarium. We parked right in front and were pleasantly surprised by the selection.

Pretty good selection for the area. Really strong selection of Belgians. Local micros seem to be a bit lacking (Stone, Lagunitas and North Coast are well represented though). Lots of wine and liquor as well.
