Great selection overall, but a bit disorganized and random. Definite bonus that you can buy singles of anything but the prices are much higher than they should be compared to the normal six pack prices. The guy working there was nice and helpful, though not overly conversational. Iíll be back, but probably only to find stuff that I canít get after hitting other bay area spots with better prices.

Large wel lit older building with a great selection of beers at least for an out of towner. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable. One of the best liquor stores in the East Bay Iíve been to.

This place gets the high ratings, and they do have a lot of interesting bottles here, but its pretty haphazardy layed out. Lots of labels on the cooler doors make it hard to see whats inside. Row of non refrigerated beers is really all over the place. I think I saw pockets of the same beer in four different places. Definitely worth the visit, but donít expect miracles. He does have some pretty unusual stuff that would be hard to find anywhere else.

I had heard so many recommendations for this place I figured I needed to get here. This place has a rather sketchy outside appearance and typical well worn interior look, sort of an organized chaos. The beer is at the back in 3 rows of cut boxes and disorganized shelves, plus a whole wall of well stocked coolers. There is a great selection of rare beers I have not seen elsewhere as well as many belgians. You do pay a premium on the hard to find stuff but thatís kinda what youíd expect. When Iím looking for good beer Iíll be back.

Good selection, not very well organized. Found 7 or 8 untried bottles.

Basically your old corner liquor store, but with a nice selection of Belgian and American craft beers. Makes me imagine that it used to an antique or small furniture store. Ed was a nice guy and helped me try to find a couple that I was looking for. The beer section can be kind of disorganized, but you wonít mind sorting through it all if you have 45 minutes or an hour to burn. If you donít have that kind of time, then it could get a little frustrating, although I suppose that there can be worse instances of frustration than being literally surrounded in a confusing labyrinth of beers. There were like 11 or 12 Lost Abbey beers on the shelves when I was there. If I had the cash I probably wouldíve picked up one of each. There were also a couple of Alesmith and Mikkeller selections.

Have witnessed the paranoia of the staff in regards to "proper identification" and whatnot but it still cannot deter me from their extensive offering of alcohols. A strong international selection, haphazardly arranged for the customer... just awesome. Also, if you like whiskey or wine, you might be in the store for a really long time. GREAT prices.

Good selection of Sake, a decent selection of glassware and the best Mead selection that I have seen to date. The beer selection is pretty good with a strong Belgian and German presence. They have Hair of the Dog, Avery, Ballast Point, Lost Abbey, Russian River, and North Coast, but no Alesmith or Pizza Port. They have Unibroue 15-17, but the 15s looked like they had infected corks. Most prices are increadbly outrageous. Charging 12.99 for a basic 12oz Scottish Imperial stout is ridiculous! The guy working the counter knew little to nothing about beer.
