This place is true to their motto: Purveyors of fine beer, bourbon and hummus. There was an extensive selection of all three, great beer selection, fairly good prices, and very friendly staff (our guy didnít know anything about beer but a lot about bourbon think it depends on who you get). That being said he called a supplier to find out something about a beer for us and donít think you get better service then that. Between this and City Beer you can get all your beer needs in the SF taken care off.

Excellent beer shop. Large selection, organized in a general way by brewery. Selection changes in and out, so some stuff is unavailable at times. Staff are friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. They are willing and able to make good recommendations based on what you like. All in all, a superb beer shop.

Top of the line bottle shop with just about everything you can imagine. The small store focuses on craft beer and small batch bourbon. And is one of the only places Iíve heard that have commissioned barrel aged beers for themselves (the other is Knightly Spirits in Orlando, FL)> You can even order stuff they have in stock online and they will ship to you. Whoa. When I was there they had the entire Lost Abbey lineup, Firestone Walker special release, 50/50 Eclipse releases. Really top notch albeit a little expensive. Staff there was extremely knowledgeable and friendly.

Nice place, clean bottle shop on the corner. Lots of beer selection. Well worth visiting if you are looking to buy bottles. I think I liked City Beer slightly better, but this place is still good.

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.

Just a quick update: Iíve now ordered from these guys several times, they seem to be my online retailer of choice these days, and I canít understate how easy they are to deal with. Iíve also been able to buy a few things from them I didnít think Iíd get anywhere. Original rating: Based on a couple of online orders. Both experiences were very pleasant. Excellent service; Rami, Dave and Nate are super-friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Their website, or blog, gets the job done once youíve gotten used to it. As far as online selection and quality, Iíd put these guys up against anyone. A great West Coast selection with the Alesmithís, LA, Russian River, etc, and even some breweries I donít generally see elsewhere such as Valley, Midnight Sun, and Marin. Shipping from San Fran to FL and packaging costs will drive up the total price quite a bit but thatís to be expected. Iíll order from them again for sure.

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.
