A world class beer store. We walked there from Monkís kettle on our way to Toronado. It is in reality quite small inside, but donít let that fool you. Selection is very well picked from the likes of Lost Abbey, RR, FW, Cascade.... to name but a few. There was some very interesting limited edition brews such as 50/50 Eclipse on offer. I was also impressed with the extensive vintages of Gales Prize Old ale, which you could never get in the UK. The guy behind the desk was both knowledgeable and helpful. Interesting looking bourbons and snacks also available. An essential visit if you are in SF.

Great place. Went in there twice with my grilfriend to see there selction. Both times the people were amazingly accomodating and friendly. Rami is great (my girlfriend says Dave is too). Both know a lot about beer and are very interested in sharing the beer love. Was allowed in the back to see some of there aged stuff (ask around, they got some good stuff in there). Rami says they might start shipping soon. Tons of lambics available and lots of hard to find Europeans, lots of Russian River and certain hard to find Deschuets bottles, they even have some Due de Ciel. Great place, will return often.

They have a cooler of NoCal singles, one of Belgians and another one of assorted others. There is also another non cooled shelving unit where I spotted a barleywine I havenít had yet and some Cantillon Iris and others. The prices arenít priced the best but they arenít out of line either (I noticed Flying Dog Saison for $13.95 here and I bought one in Santa Cruz for $11.95). The guy behind the counter was very friendly and helpful. He took great care in cleaning the bottles and removing the price tags while talking with me. The friendliness of the place and pretty solid selection will draw me back here the next time Iím in The City.

WOW. The staff knows a ton about beer and whiskey. I spent way too much here and they even shipped my purchase back home for me (they ship to states that are legal to ship to 21+ requirement, etc). I hope they post a website soon so I can order from them. These guys are super awesome.

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.

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.

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.

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.
