Visited October 11, 2014.

This is a pretty cool new spot in Mountain View. One of the better beer stores on the peninsula for sure. Itís surprising that he can stay in business just selling beer and nothing else (minus some glasses and tshirts). There are some shelves in the middle of the store and around edges of the room are some fridges and more shelves. I saw everything from the big California stuff to Logsdon to Mikkeller, to Cascade and Anchorage. Oh, and they have Kriek de Ranke. Awesome. I bought two beers: a Mystic beer and a barleywine from some local brewery. The guy that was working is a metal fan too. Cool spot. Iíll have to make sure to stop back in again.

(Visited 08/2014): Janeís Beer Store is located in Mountain View on Villa between Blossom and Hope. Street parking is available in the surrounding streets.

The inside of the store is small, with shelves around the perimeter and in the middle, and some coolers on the left. Some glassware is for sale in the glass counter.

The store stocks around 500 different beers. Lots of breweries from CA represented like Alesmith, Bruery, Firestone Walker, FiftyFifty and Lagunitas, plus many other domestic craft breweries and imports.

Service on a weekday afternoon was good. The guy behind the counter was helpful and friendly.

All in all this shop was a nice find and I would visit again.

Not very big, but plenty to choose from. Lots of Lost Abbey/Port Brewing, Firestone, Alesmith, and even had some Stillwaters and De Molens Iíve never seen. Itís a little expensive, but itís the best show in town

Bumped into this one by accident, what a luck! Lots of nice brews from both abroad and the US. Lots of high quality beers, and of course some not so great. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Most certainly a store I could visit on a regular basis if I lived in the area.

Chick beer store. A lot to choose from. Kind of pricey. Nice clean hole in the wall. Check it out.

Small store just loaded with great beers. The staff person was attentive and seemed to have a good knowledge of microbrews. I stopped by to check on some beer bytemesis told me about and ended up buying too many things and seeing a bunch more I would have liked but could not afford to go overboard on.

Great dedicated bottle shop. Lots of South Bay and CA locals as well as US craft (jester king, pretty things). Good European selection and glassware. Small but crammed and obviously driven. Prices ok for a specialty bottle shop. Reminds me of City Beer without the bar.

Great little (and I do mean little) Beer Store. Excellent, growing selection. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. They give great recommendations. Very respectable selection of California and West Coast Brews, but no Russian River :-( A good number of Euro brews . . . Belgians, Germans, Austrians, Lotís of Mikkeller.

Itís a very small store in the Castro St. area. Because of this they arenít wasting any time with macros. They are stocking better, more interesting stuff. Price is competitive I think.
