I visited here during RBSG09. What a nice place with a great selection, friendly people and fine service Ledger’s is. I would definitely recommend it and will go back when in the area.

This place rocks. The selection is fabulous, the stock rotates a lot so you get something new each time. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The value of what you get is hit or miss sometimes though, sometimes you will overpay here! But it is worth it because sometimes price is right on par to everywhere else. Excellent hard alcohol selection too.

This is the place that I head to, everytime that I am in Berkeley. This is an east bay institution - one of a kind, and the place to get all the beers that you want when you hit the SF area.

This is my favorite beer store period. Service is wonderful, they will get anything that is remotely available if you just ask. Always rare belgians available. Some in back you have to ask about. Wonderful people and selection.

The best liquor store in the bay area, period; staff that actually want to help directing me to obscure bottles shoved into strangely organized boxes describe my visits here. If you’re a music fan like myself, going through their beer selection feels like going through a killer used section at a record store; you have to really look but it pays off, you’ll find some strange rare gems tucked way in there, and you’ll probably try not that hard in avoiding spouting off your knowledge on their selection because you know one of the clerks is dying to do the same. My ONLY qualm with this place is that they close at 8PM every night, except Sunday, when their not even open.

WOW! This is one heck of a liquor store...Visited here with a fellow ratebeerian on a recent trip to SF. Met the owner (ED) WONDERFUL guy. Very kind. This store is like a giant candy store for adults. I could have spent hours here looking at the wine, beer, and liquor...Its everywhere!!! I liked the chaos of it all. Made it more fun to look at things...And for things. I dont think it would be the same at all, if it were organized. I think it is perfect as it is.

This place is great! Hard to find Drake’s, Pizza Port and Allegash, and on occasion they do get AleSmith’s! Russian River, Marin and Moylan’s of course all make appearances here, as well as the usual friends from around the country. The people there are great too! If you meet the Patriarch of Ledger’s Liquors, he can tell you about the history of the place (it was one of the first liquor licenses in CA after prohibition) and why they have a huge propeller on the wall.
