(Visited 10/2013): Royal Liquor is located near the ocean on the 101 on the north side of Encinitas, not too far off the I-5. There is a parking lot next to the building.
The interior is laid out like a typical liquor/convenience store. The beer is located in multiple aisles on the right side, and in some coolers around the perimeter.
Regarding the selection there are hundreds of brands, more or less segmented by geography. California and the west coast are well-represented with beers from Lost Abbey/Port, Almanac, Bruery, Speakeasy and Russian River.
Service on our visit was friendly, although the cashier didnít really go out of the way to offer assistance (not that we asked for or needed it). They did let me use the restroom which was appreciated.
All in all this is an unassuming spot from outward appearances, but has an incredible selection and is definitely worth stopping between Encinitas and Carlsbad.

Pretty nice place on the Alameda. Not crowded on a Friday afternoon, plenty of outdoor seating. A dozen interesting taps, iwhen I was there. Fair to middlin bottle list, with prices that range from pretty good to "whoah"

I was utterly surprised by the fantastic selection here. I looked everywhere for certain beers and finally went here on a whin, even though it looks a run of the mill liquor store.

I stumbled onto this place unintentionally as I was driving down the 101 looking for a restroom. boy was I surprised when I walked in.... They have lines and lines of beer, probably close to 700 varieties. I also loved their controlled wine cellar. I wish they aged their beers this way as well. Definitely one of the best in San Diego.

One of the best micro brew and craft beer selection Iíve seen. They have just about every single beer thatís brewed in San Diego county, and they also have a wide variety of beers that I canít find elsewhere.
