I came here because City Beer was close the day I was in SF. :( I was still quite happy with the selections and the service. The place has everything you need, Beer, Bourbon and Hummus. Definitely worth dropping by when in town.

Oct 2012. Visited by accident. Classic US high-end beers with some of the best Danish and Belgian beers. One of the best bottle selections in SF, but in my opinion not as good as Coit Liquors. Healthy spirits indeed.

Stopped in 4 or 5 times since 2007.

The first time I stopped here was completely by accident. Decided to walk all the way from 16th/Mission BART to Magnolia and took a shortcut up Castro to 15th. Saw the Chimay sign sticking out and decided to stop in. Neat place for sure. I decided to limit myself to one bottle since I had several miles left to walk and got the Urthel Samaranth. Since then I come back every other year or so and pick up something interesting or just some Russian River stuff.

The service is very nice and even though they "only" have a couple of doors of beer itís a good selection. Prices can be a bit higher than average but not by all that much. Will continue to (occasionally) give them some business. Its also not all that far from Toronado if youíre walking around the city.

Visited during SF beer week on my way out of town. Older small store that is very specialized with many bottles I didnít find anywhere else on my travels. Nice array of imported stuff and some well thought out local selections. Quite a nice and also well thought out selection of liquor that is mostly bourbon, with some rye, tequila, mescal, and rum. Small but decent selection of glassware. Store was maned by a single employee, but he was super nice and very knowledgeable when he and I chatted up rye whiskey. Prices were a bit high, but not absurd. Had I not already had pretty much a full bag to check or if I had planned on buying more bottles, there were several things here I would had bought. Cool little shop that really feels like SF.

My favorite bottle shop in San Francisco. Amazing selection of beers and super cool staff. Talked for a while about European beers and they really know their beers. Would recommend this place to anyone.

Small place, most of their beer is in coolers. Pretty interesting and eclectic selection for the size of the place, including a bunch of 2010 Schaerbeekse Kriek. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable; obviously knows his beer and wants to help. Prices pretty high compared to City Beer, but the selection is better, so i guess you get what you pay for.

Amazing beer store. They have everything. As well as great bourbon selection. The guys are also upper helpful and know what they are talking about. Thanks for tolerating me even though I was so drunk when I came in there. World class place.

Well the ambiance here kind of sucks, which can be expected since itís mostly just a corner store but other than that this place fuckiní rocks. The service was great. Two guys talked to me the whole time I was in the store, even though they had other customers coming and going and there was only one more guy working. Theyíve also got the best selection I saw anywhere in SF, hands down. Some stuff with a little age on it and everything. The prices were a notch higher than I saw elsewhere but still not obscene by any means.

"The other" well known bottle shop in the City. A bit more expensive, somehow, but really good selection. Helpful staff, most of the beer is stored in coolers, limited releases, and I think they have a beer club of some sort (for locals).
