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.

Fantastic small bottle shop with a great selection, including quite a bit of stuff that I didnít see at City Beer. Very friendly and helpful service, and a calm, well organized interior. Prices are fair. Definitely worth a stop when bottle shopping in San Fran.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Stopped in here yesterday to start my day of SF beer. Atmosphere was laid back and informal, as a bottle shop should be IMO. Lost of bottles and glasses on the left side of the store, tons of liquor and food stuffs on the right. Service was awesome. He made sure I had everything I needed and even checked on some bottles I was looking for to make sure they didnít have any hiding in the back. Quality was high, I didnít see a single out of date beer and the awesome glass selection was a bonus. Selection was great. Tons of beers from all over the country and even more from the rest of the world. I was able to find a long time want from Europe that I never thought I would see in the US. Prices were more than reasonable. Overall an awesome bottle shop in a really cool looking neighborhood. I would love to have this place in my area.
