Updated 05-17-2014. revisited this store for the first time in several years, and I was surprised to find that they have embraced craft beers in a big way. Once they were a small neighborhood convenience store with some decent locals, but shit has changed and they are now a full blow liquor store with a really good selection. Prices looked a touch higher than some competitors like bevmo but that’s not unusual. Knocking down my rating a bit as I just realized that they have many IPA’s sitting on shelves and not in coolers.

For a neighborhood market that is not trying to be a beer store they have a very good selection. You won’t see the hard to find beers but they do have most Stone including seasonals, Ballast Point (including Sculpin when available). Mission, Green Flash, and Lost Abbey/Port are also represented. Very friendly people. Good wine selection as well.
