Great selection of beers and conveniently located across from Ballast Point. Also have a great tap selection with a few selections from each and every style. Grab a few beers at either place and you can have a very good night. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the ambiance is basically a renovated garage. Really simple and friendly - great place to drink. No food but they allow pizza deliveries.

smaller selection than expected, and only have draft on special occasions. the once and a while gem can be found, but otherwise BDBS blows this place away.

This place is half bar half bottle shop. Very enjoyable open space with seating inside and out. I snagged an IPA from the tap list and started browsing for my bottles. Small but well curated selection. Plenty of sours, ciders, IPAs, and stouts. I didnt see anything mind blowing but it was just a well put together selection. Prices were on the high side of the scale. Great environment for a glass of beer or browsing for bottles.

This place just moved down the road and now has a dozen or so taps along with their bottle selection. There is no food but you are in Little Italy so food is all around you. The service is good and knowledgeable of the beer, and the selection is pretty good.

Situ en face de Ballast Point dans la petite Italie. Une bottleshop bien garnie jumel un bar ouvert sur la rue qui a toujours des joyaux en ft. Chaque fois que jy suis all, les surprises pleuvaient.

Great Little Italy spot close to Ballast Point. Open feel with taps of beer while u browse the bottle area. Good local selection with an option to chill bought brews. Hoping for some SoCal whales, but still solid beers. I like the open feel of the place. Parking sucks:(

Visited on 12/11/14 just after opening time. Located just a block from Ballast Points Little Italy tasting room. They had one beer on tap whilst we browsed the shop and it was fucken solid - Noble - Nelson Showers straight in at 4.1 on the rate front! Good couple of hundred bottles, CA, US wide and a decent European selection. The server was good vfm and I soon had him hunting for CDAs around the shop. Solid bottle shop, drink while you browse, whats not to like!

Stopped here on my way back from Ballast Point (just a few doors down). Great place. Lots of bottles from all over. They will open and you can drink them there. Also had two flights for tasting - all decent. Great selection. Well worth a visit if you want to purchase bottles.

A nice little shop right next door to ballast point. A good selection of local imports and even some meads. Well setup and easy to find stuff.
