Biggest selection that I’ve seen south of Holiday Wine Cellar. Lots of local, Belgian (some I’ve never seen before), standard to substandard German selection. You certainly want to select carefully due to the overpricing and shelf life issues. Do your homework and you may score.
I went here one night after O’brens. They had a nice selection of local stuff. The beers I got there were ok, and had no complaints. It’s kind of like a beer store and a 7-11 mixed together. Kinda ghetto.
Although they have sandwiches, I would suggest eating elsewhere when near this place. The selection is good but I question the quality of the packaged product. The prices are a bit high as well. Better off with Beverages & More and grabbing a pint and burger at O’Briens right down the street.
I have an interesting spin on this place, because I used to work here, and have shopped for beer here. I’ll say, up front, that the manager of this store is a scam artist, who wants nothing more than to take your money. Believe me on this one. So, yes, they have a lot of good beers.....just be prepared to be ripped off. How does $15 for a Vertical Epic sound? If you said "great" than this is your store!
An odd bird. Watch for ancient light struck bottles. The selection is very good. The staff is very confused as to what beer is, but you already know what good beer is so you don’t need any help do you?
Third best selection for beer in San Diego (after Holiday Wine Cellar and South Bay Drugs). It’s conveniently located close to Obriens, and great asian restaurants, if you want to kill several birds with one stone, without spending more gas money. That being said, they seem to be a little overpriced. Staff doesn’t seem to care, and the place is a little ghetto.
Have made some nice finds here, and have been disappointed as well. They sometimes have things hiding in the shadows if you ask. They have some odd old stuff sometimes. I got a bottle that’s too old to be entered into the database from a brewery that closed in the late 90’s, I believe. I stop by to see what they got going on, it’s worth the stop.
Aight...just be wary of old beers and you'll be all good. They have selection, and selection is key IMO. From CA micros to obscure belgians..you'll find them here. No doubt. Watch out for dust, that's all i must say.
