This is located in a tight little non-descript sort of run down strip mall that doesnít really stand out and it took a while to locate since I didnít see the yellow sign in the parking lot. The place is pretty darn small with friendly help that pointed me to a beer I wasnít looking for but was happy to buy once I noticed it. There is a line of coolers filled with bombers and such with a room temperature (summer time it is rather warm actually) shelf opposite in the aisle. Another area has the macros and likely a new Malt Liquor tick had I come prepared to find a new one (for me this is worth a future stop alone). It was surprising to see lots of Alesmith 2012 Decadence Smoked Barleywine here. Whenís the last time I say that on the shelf? Pretty cool. Thereís some Stone VE 11 and 12 still here too. Nice.

Pretty much your standard liquor store in the middle of the Ghetto, they happen to have a few good brews. They have some brews from Coney Island like White Python and Sword Swallower that I havenít been able to find elsewhere in S.D. Its worth stopping by if youíre in the area.

Good place for Casa De Oro area. Little liquor store in a strip mall. Decent selection. Not alot of stuff, but some good stuff. Good spot to pick up Stone special releases. I have found a few beers here that I havenít seen elsewhere. Prices are reasonable.
