As a life long Livermore resident, I have been a regular patron of Perry’s for over 20 years. The original owner- "George", was extremely kind and helpful in getting hard to find beers for me. One time, George actually allowed me to age a keg of Bigfoot for 18 months! He was known to get us cases of hard to get beers from Belgium, The Netherlands, etc. In the 1980’s, I personally took a huge interest and effort in helping George develop his beer selection. When George sold the business in 2001, a couple from India took over, and kept the integrity of the beer selection. They were very helpful if I wanted a special order done. In 2004, they sold to two gentlemen also of Indian descent. Anyhow, they too have been very good in keeping the specialty beer selection that George and I created all those many years ago... There is one gent behind the register who is a bit "off" but he is a nice person- but a bit hard to understand because of his extremely thick Middle-Eastern accent. But whenever I ask them to order something- they usually get it! (One example- when I found Anderson Valley’s Brother David’s Double and Triple at Beverages, and More!, they said "no problem" and they got it for me.) So folks, any of the Belgians you see on the shelves is due to my steady pursuits with this store over these past 20 years. But the effort has been worth it...

Located in a strip mall, easy to find. The store is nice, but not very well organized and there were many beers not priced. Service was excellent, I believe by the owner, he pointed out some great beers and rarities. Selection was amazing, there were lots of hard to find beers although he charges a premium for those beers. Value was great on most things but high on rare beers. Overall a great place to stop for an out-of-towner. I picked up a bunch of good, cheaper local stuff and a few spendy rarer beers. Will return if in the area.

OK, first of all, why is this place not in google maps? I had to navigate by address cause it kept wanting to take me to Pleasanton even when I said Livermore. OK, rant over. I had heard a lot about this place and was dying to check it out. Finally got the chance when I ended up that way for work and had (just) enough time for the detour. Pretty big store, but most of the space is dedicated to non-beer. The craft beer is confined to one long shelf plus a row of coolers. Things are stored pretty haphhazardly with labels not matching products and some individual bottles showing up in about six different places around the area. That being said, the selection is pretty damn impressive. Nothing too hugely whale-like, but they did have a lot of beers I havent seen on the shelves anywhere else in the bay. Picked up RR Sanctification and Damnation B69 for great prices, as well as a bunch of other stuff. Overall prices are a bit on the high side compared to say City Beer or K&L Wine Merchants, but some of their stuff is dirt cheap. I am a bit concerned with shelf aging, however. For example, they still had a couple bottles of YuleSmith SUMMER on the shelves, which can’t be too great six months later. Ditto for Port Hop-15 and its three months of aging. That aside, this is a great place, I just recommend checking best by dates, particularly for IPA’s.

What! I haven’t rated this place yet. Been here a couple of times. This place puts out the rare / hard to find stuff and at a pretty fair premium. Lots of stuff from all over the globe. They have a decent selection of local stuff but since I’m no longer local seeing a bigger local selection would be cool. That said I still find several local brews I need to get each visit. If you are anywhere near here you need to stop by. All in all one of the best selections I’ve seen in CA.

Very helpful staff. Good selection of bombers and high quality beers. Not a place for 12oz singles though. Pricing seemed normal for the beer offered. A good place to visit while in the area.

My biggest issue with this place is the prices. I did a quick price check for beer I bought there to another beer store in SF, I could have saved about $5 per beer if I went into the city. That said they have a great selection of beers that I just cannot find elsewhere in the Bay Area. Further, they sometimes have out of season beers that they have purposely held on to. The staff are friendly and offer help if you want it and not if you don’t. It’s a great place if your in the area and have the cash but otherwise...

Kind of an infamous place. They do have a really nice selection, for the most part, but prices are typically high and they’ve been known to engage in some less than savory business practices. If you know what you’re getting yourself into, not a bad place. But I wouldn’t drive from the Peninsula just to go here.

This place is legit. Saw the reviews and had to make a drive out while in San Ramon on work. Tons of Bruery (4 French and other limiteds), Alesmith (the whole line), Ballast Point (Victory at Sea and Sea Monster), Mikkeller, JW Lees, North Coast...list goes on. Knowledgeable staff (one of them anyway). Picked up a Mikkeller/FFF Boogoop, a Victory at Sea, a High Water Campfire Stout, a local triple IPA, some 21st Amendment The Allies Win the War, and more.

We stopped past here on our way to Yosemite form Santa Rosa. It’s a fairly unassuming liquor store from outside, excluding the small sign saying craft beer. It has a very extensive selection of beers from all over the world - US, Belgium, Denmark, UK etc. It’s a large store and pretty much half of it is dedicated to beer! Lots of exciting stuff from the best CA breweries like Alesmith, Stone, The Bruery etc, but there is also lots of obscure stuff I have never seen or even heard of before. Perhaps prices are a touch more expensive than those in the bay area, but you can’t argue with the selection. Very friendly service. A brilliant beer store.

Wow, probably one of the best selection of rare/special release beers that I’ve seen. Coolers full of limited edition, barrel aged beers. The beer specialist was extremely knowledgeable and helped me with beers I’ve never seen before. There’s also a big selection in the walk in cooler and in the back room. The prices on the rarer stuff is a little pricy, so know your prices and you can come out with a great score.

Overall a great Craft Beer Store. Amazing selection, from local beers to imports they have anything your looking for. Service is good, most of the people know what they are talking about. The downfall of the store is pricing. Every single beer in the store is overpriced. They sell standard beers for at least 15-20% more than most craft beer stores. If they got they pricing down to a more reasonable level then I would be a more frequent customer.
