Its odd that this place has no reviews after being in business for a year. Its pretty close to Alameda Island Brewing, so hopefully there is some spill over, because this place is indeed legit. I honestly was not expecting much, but I walked out with six bottles, including the new Allagash Cuvee. Most of the bottles are in a row of coolers on the right side as you enter, but there are more scattered about on the walls, and some on display sort of behind the counter. Well curated. The owner was friendly, and amusingly curious about what beers I was selecting. This is not the largest beer store in the world, but it is certainly the best on Alamada, and if the quality stays up, it is one of the better places in the greater Oakland area. Oh, and if you are planning to go to Alameda Island Brewing, stop here first. He has $2 off coupons for beer flights. Prices are quite good. There is street parking readily available. While Santa Clara Ave. is metered, you can park around the corner on Broadway for free.
