Finally a good liquor store stop in Poway. After the gas station(s), Sprouts, and Stater Brothers I was due. Iíve heard some rumors about this place including accusations that they buy/trade stuff that is not sold here and put it on the shelf. There was a time where I cared about that. Considering how many mediocre choices we have and the fact that beer is getting ridiculously expensive I really donít care at all anymore if this is hurting anyone. I just want a good beer. In the end all I bought was some of the habanero grapefruit Sculpin variations. They have a lot of beers to pick from here. They have a lot of the usual (fun) imports like St Bernardus, Rodenbach, Fantome, Mikkeller, and Chimay. They have a ton of American beers like AleSmith, Cascade, Deschutes, Lost Abbey, Dogfish Head, Logsdon, and Goose Island. I counted 7 different Cascade bottles if youíre into that. They also had at least one of the Hangar 24 Barrel Roll series bottles. Logsdon is usually a good bet.

Prices were high but the selection is solid. Stop in here if youíre heading up/down I-15.

Small store in a stripmall with a sign that just reads LIQUOR. Ok, perfect. A few rows of beer and several coolers. Lots of choice including some rather rare beer. Guys working here were incredibly friendly and truly love beer. I would recommend this store to anyone in the area.

Met a guy at OíBrienís who recommended this place to me. He was right. Marvin or Martin (I donít know, I think theyíre brothers) dropped everything and cruised the store with me. It was after closing time by the time he was done, yet I never felt rushed at all. Great selection.

The kids picking the beers are very enthusiastic, even if they have no idea what theyíre talking about. I love the place because itís on the way home and they get keep a good rotation of seasonals and special beers. On the other hand, Iíve had a seriously skunked St. Peterís English Pale Ale. Clear glass and bright flourescent lights donít mix. Prices are about average. Iíve been overcharged a couple dollars here and there. Letís not forget the outstanding "Adults Only" section in the back corner, it feels kinda ghetto.

A very good selection of beer including the occasional hard to find beer in San Diego. owners are very helpful in showing you what new goodies they recently have gotten.

I agree with Naven, this is the best beer store in the Mira Mesa/Poway/RB/Scripps Ranch area. If they donít have it, they will try to order it for you. Located next door to Michaelís, look for the red marquee of "liquor" and your at the right place. Huge selection of all the local breweries plus many Belgian imports.

Donít let the name fool you, this is just a liquor store. Although, it has tons and tons of beer. This store certainly isnít up to the quality of Southbay or Holiday, but itís easily the best beer store in the Mira Mesa/Poway/Rancho Bernardo/Carmel Mountain area.
