I finally made it to this place. Big selection of Belgians and decent mix of German beers. Good selection of micros, including several Rogues that are hard to find. Prices can be average to outrageous. I saw an Allagash 2007 limited release for $20. There are a fair amount of dusty ones on the shelves. I think someone said it before, but the 8-Ball Stout with the old label is still on the shelf. What has it been, 5 years?

I have an interesting spin on this place, because I used to work here, and have shopped for beer here. Iíll 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!

Decent place for bottles. Some of the stuff on the dry shelf do look a bit old. I did recognize a few things that donít even exist anymore. But thanks to warnigs here, I have yet to try one.

This place was once great, but if you go there now, youíll find bottles, under light, that are near 5 years old or more. One of the employees agrees with me, that they should be taken off, but the owner, is a little more fiesty. Luckily, the one employee that knows me, lets me know when the cantillon shipment came in and will give me a credit for a duchess that turned to chummy syrup. They do carry quite a bit.. One of the few places to get cantillon and thomas hardy(though at a ridiculous price)

Strip mall liquor store. Great selection of beers from all over. Iíve found and purchased some good ones from here. But Iíve also purchased some way out of date and totally funkified beers from here as well. Be very careful what you purchase and be sure to check for dust on bottles. They donít take great care of the beer they have, so caveat emptor. The staff typically seem to know or care little about the beers they stock. But if youíre careful and select wisely, you can find some great beers.

Best selection of the 4 or 5 beer stores that I visited while in SD. A bit pricier than BevMo and many bottles looked like they had been there a while. Lotís of West Coast micros and an unusually large number of Belgians. I picked up a Stone Imp Stout that had just been released 2 days prior so I knew it was good. Also picked up a Stone 8 thatís a year ols so no telling about the condition till I open it...

Pretty good selection. Can find a hidden gem or two. They overcharge and Iíve had many bad beers. I donít trust that the beer tastes as good as it should when I buy it from there.

I went here one night after Oíbrens. They had a nice selection of local stuff. The beers I got there were ok, and had no complaints. Itís kind of like a beer store and a 7-11 mixed together. Kinda ghetto.

Marc  (13) Yokosuka, Japan | August 15, 2004| Updated December 11, 2007
Usually over priced and poorly kept beers. The atendants either dont know anything or have tryed to pass off there wares in a very shiesty manner (claiming they had the only double bastard in town and charging 10 bucks for it for example) The biggest redeemer about this place is they sometimes have some hard to find stuff. If you see something rare, pick it up, if you think you can get it elsewere, do so it and probably pay less.

Mesa liqour is located right down the street from my new office, so Iíll probably be visiting it a few times. The selection is actually pretty good, they have a decent amount of Imports, mostly Belgian and English, as well as a pretty good amount of Micros. They didnít really have any vintage or specialty brews but what they had was good for a new guy in town. The only thing that would say to look out for is the dust on some of the bottles. That actually scared me away from buying a couple of things. The cashiers that I saw looked like a couple of colege kids just trying to earn some cash and get some cheep beer to party with. Not much help with any questions you might have.
