OK, so at the recommendation of this site and a few others, I made the trip over to Perry’s. Met up with Harpreet who introduced himself to me by asking "So, do you like good beer?" Absolutely, was my reply and he takes me in the back and shows me the crates of Westy that he has for sale, Red Poppy, and others then takes me deeper and more beer that wasn’t even in the refrigerated section. Fantastic selection and this is a MUST visit if in the area. The ONLY thing is the prices of beer are REALLY, REALLY high. But, he stated if we could find a beer cheaper he’d sell it to us for that price or cheaper so I have some homework to do. Great store, albeit very expensive.

Okay, so this is where I’ll be going all the time from now on. The guy you want to talk to, either on the phone or in person, is Harpreet. He’s one of us - a real beer enthusiast who knows a lot about rare, hard to find, world-class beer. He specifically mentioned that he tries to get RB Top 50 beers. His selection was apalling - stuff you won’t find anywhere in NorCal, or even SoCal for that matter. Forget San Francisco, this place has all that stuff and more. My 75-mile drive didn’t seem that long once I got out of there. Just hit him up, mention that you’re an RBian, and he’ll let you know what he’s got. You’ll be glad you did.

Saw this place listed either here on Ratebeer, or some other beer rating place so I stopped by on the way home from a Sharks game. Mind you it was about 12:30am, but the guys working were very happy to help me. The first guy I met called the manager out, who proceeded to walk me through the huge beer section, especially pointing out the rare Belgian and trappist items them just got in. Then he took me in the back to where he had some special one-sy two-sy bottles. We talked beer for over 20 minutes and he didn’t seem bored. More along the lines of a guy who enjoyed talking beer! I could EASILY have walked out spending a couple hundred on rare and unique beers. Will definately be back sometime in the next month to check out his Belgians. Also, he seems to have the largest selection of the SoCal biggies (Alesmith, Lost Abby/Port and Stone) that I’ve seen of any Bay Area brew stores. This guy deserves your business if you’re anywhere near Livermore/Pleaanton!

Beer Geek Paradise!!!! Just stopped by this place, and believe it or not they outdo most Bay Area Craft Beer meccas! I picked up some Alesmiths, some Port, some Lost Abbey and some Elysian. If its available in the Bay Area, its here. If its not availalble, they might just have it anyway. Harpeet, the guy who runs the place is really cool and is a beer geek like us all. Give a shout out to him if you stop by!

Just take a look at the awesome selection of beer at this place and that will tell you everything you need to know. Over the last eight months or so, Harpreet has turned this into one of the best beer stores in the east bay. And if you can’t find what you want, he will do what he can to get it for you. The staff says that people are coming all the way from San Jose just to check it out, and I believe it. My only complaint is that it tends to be a little pricy, but with all the world class imports they have, I guess thats to be expected. Word is, they may be looking into getting a tasting bar with up to four taps for sampling. If that happens this will definitely be a must stop for anybody traveling to the east bay. I’m happy I live in Livermore, so I get to stop in at least weekly. Good job!

NOTE: older reviews might not be reliable now that a new beer guy has taken over this place and he has changed this place for the better. this is a great place to get good beer and their selection just keeps getting better. they have a lot of beers to choose from barrel aged jolly pumpkins, many of the russian rivers, lost abbey and port, firestone 12 to name a few. the service here is second to none, if harpreet is in, he will go out of his way to help you with what you want. this place definitely ranks up there along with ledgers and monuments.

Not the greatest beer store (small, limited selection, and haphazard bottles), but they had a lot of Cali micros that I can’t get in Colorado, so I was satisfied. When I brought $60 worth of beer up to the counter (most of which was IPAs and double IPAs), the clerk told me I had some good stuff picked out. He was rather friendly. He asked about our tasting party and I told him we were from Colorado visiting for T-day, and we were about to throw down. We all laughed, and then I coughed up a lot of dough for just one box of beer.

This is a rerate, as things have drastically changed since I first rated. IMO, anyone who rated Perry’s before Summer of 08 needs to visit again. Harpreet is the new "craft beer" manager, and he is doing an excellent job. I ran into him 8 months ago or so and suggested getting some Lost Abbey/Port Brewing and Russian River. He apparently did some more homework, and has filled his beer section with the best accessible craft and Belgian beers. Jolly Pumpkin, DFH, RR, Fantome, Chuffe, etc. Even had a case of FW 12. If you are in or near Livermore, Perry’s is the place to go for good beer.

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...
