Every year Iíve visited the West Coast Iíve visited this place. Iíve met the owner and the beer manager. Thought they were professional and very helpful. While I do shop at other stores, I go here to get some of the regionís hard to find beers.
I will make a note to myself to call before visiting so that they are there (see other comments).

Iíve been here many times. Classy feel to it, especially if you go downstairs to check out the wine. The beer selection is top notch. The last time I was there they put almost all the beer in the walk-in cooler. They did keep some cases of recently released beers outside of the cooler, and it seemed like they were still moving things around so next time I stop by I will update. Plenty of glasses too. Service is great. Just a great place to get awesome beer, and if you visit, do go downstairs and check out their setup.

I visited here when they opened this past Sunday. WORST BEER STORE IN THE ENTIRE AREA.
Where do I begin? The majority of the beer is located in a walk in cooler in the back. I donít like freezing my ass off to shop for beer. I had to go in and out of the cooler at least half a dozen times to thaw out. Service sucked ass. When I got there there was a sign just inside the door. It listed beers that were tasted there the night before. I asked if I could buy some of the beers on the sign. I was told no. Those were in the basement and only the owner could sell those. And the owner wasnít in.
So they have a great selection. Only problem is you wonít be able to buy the good stuff. Unless the owner is there. I found no value visiting here and overall it pissed me off more than anything else. Iíll never go back here.

one of the best beer stores i have ever been to. it was hard not to spend alot of money here. however, i contained myself and only bought 125 bucks worth. Alot of out-of state beers that i didnt know were avaialbe (HOTD, jolly pumpkin) and basically anything brewed in CA its here (RR, Stone, PP, Alesmith, Alpine). a great store!

Stopped in here when I was out in SD visiting Stone because of all of the great recommendations Iíd read everywhere. They were not kidding...
Great vibe to the place and friendly helpful staff that went along well with their excellent selection.
I have to give a special shout out to Mark who, after we talked shop for a bit, was nice enough to pull a few special bottles out of the back for me... REALLY made my trip. Highly recommended and a must stop for anyone who makes the drive out from SD to visit Stone...

Found what I was looking for - Hitachino Nest Red Rice Ale and Mikkeller Beer Geek Bacon. Only had two beers from Bruery and none of the Stone collaborations though. Pretty cool retro feel because the place probably hasnít changed in decades. Interesting liquors too for good prices. Staff was helpful the only time I had a couple questions and went looking for another beer I needed. Would be willing to drive the 15 minutes anytime I need something unique.
