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.

Popped in here one afternoon on a visit to town, and had a blast chatting with David about not just the Bay Area scene but his hometown Philly scene too. Nice little boutique feel here, not anything memorable in terms of ambience but pleasant and tucked away in a quasi-residential neighborhood. Stuffed to the gills with bottles (gotta be careful how you move around), but the selection was killer. Picked up some Midnight Sun and other goodies for the family feasts, and would recommend this place very highly.

Great beer selection and lots of rare and special release stuff. Small place and very beer focused, despite what you may think from the name. Definitely one of the top beer stores in the area, but prices and selection both fall a little bit short of City Beer, which definitely handicaps it in my mind. For this reason, I donít really make an effort to go anymore when Iím in the city.

I drove past this little corner store at least 50 times, and didnít ever see a reason to stop until I met Matt at a local beer bar. His description was very accurate - hundreds of beer choices in a small space, including lots of Belgians and high end U.S. micros, many of which are hard to find. There is also a good deli menu.

This place wasnít that big. The guy behind the counter was exceptionally nice and cool. Found an 08-08-08 Vertical Epic here which made me happy. Quite honestly the selection is decent, but I wouldnít say this place is "World Class". It was small, had some great things in the cooler(s), but nothing that just made my eyes pop out of there sockets. Honestly, I would go to City Beer if I was looking for a slam dunk selection. They do well with the space they have. Some non-refrigerated gems were seen here, but again, nothing to write home or wet my pants about. Parking is a hassle here, my brother and I barely found a spot close by. Go here if visiting San Francisco, but after seeing it once, you should be good to go.

Excellent selection for this little hole in the wall, knowledgeable staff, fair prices. Not much more to add than that.

Visited in August 2013.
I liked the selection in this Beer Store, quite a lot of interesting beers from US, also foreign beers, mainly from Belgium.
The service was friendly and knowledgeable. I would like to have a place like this myself.
Located around 10 minutes by foot from Toronado. Well worth a visit.

I stopped in here during San Francisco beer week to pick up a rare High Water release. I was shocked at how small the place is. Itís tucked away in a more residential area and you wouldnít really know itís a great beer store from the outside. Inside they have quite a bit of cold storage with minimal shelf space. The selection was very good, just not huge. The employee there seemed to know his stuff. The only problem is that itís kind of off the beaten path away from the BART line, and I donít know if itís really worth going out of your way for if you live near some of the other great beer stores. They do get some rare releases that other stores wonít, especially during San Francisco beer week.

This is hands down the best beer shop Iíve ever been to. I walked in and immediately had goose bumps and was almost light headed with excitement. The tiny little shop is densely packed with an extra-ordinarily curated selection of hard to find and the best of the best classics from CA and around the world. The staff were such enthusiastic beer nerds (or bourbon nerds). I would be much lighter in my wallet but have an amazing cellar if this wasnít on the other side of the country. Dobít tell everyone though... :) Also, great hummus samples!
