A nice place to check out if you’re in the area. The prices are a little step but they have a pretty damn good selection. I need to stop by when they are doing a tasting, heard they’re off the hook.

I always stop in. Always. Because you just never know. Russian RIver BAs? European Oud Brousel? Viking Blod mead? A BFM beer that’s not sour? I’ve seen them all. And more. Was once flat-out lied to about how to get Cable Car, and also feel the whole thing is too small (read: over too quickly), but I always stop in.

(Visited 07/2008): The shop is kind of like an attached garage to the brewpub, which is located off the I-5 in Carlsbad. Street parking seems to be the best option, since there is only a small private lot behind the building.

The interior is small with coolers on either side. They are well stocked with an assortment of 100s of beers from the region and all over the world though. Port/Lost Abbey, Stone, Rogue, Alaskan, Deschutes...the list goes on. As for imports they have a nice selection from different countries. Nils Oscar, brewers from Russia, Germany, Belgium etc.

Service was good on my visit. The people behind the counter were helpful and knowledgeable.

Overall it would be nonsensical to visit the brewpub and not the bottle shop, and vice versa.

Good bottle selection, very rare stuff from time to time. Staff is really nice and helpful. You can pop stuff open in the shop and share it. Right next to the PP Carlsbad location, so you can get good pizza next door.

Great selection with very reasonable prices. The staff is very friendly and you can go in there and open up beers to share. It seems like the staff opens up beers from time to time to share with patrons as well.

Not too much in the way of ambiance, but several fridges full of some pretty good beer. Helpful staff and lots of SoCal and Belgian stuff available.

Absolutely bitchin place. They have an amazing selection and a very cool, laid back vibe. You can purchase bottles to go or to open there. The staff is very knowledgeable and an all around really cool group of guys. They do not serve food there but they have no problem with you bringing food from next door. They are my go to location for beer in san diego.

Went in to find a friendly Ratebeerian great me. Some good stuff, mainly local. Hair of the Dog Fred from the Wood was the highlight. Really based out of the back end of the brewery. Prices were okay. Good stuff!

A no frills little hole in the wall with a great selection of beers. Very laid back. I’d be here daily if I lived in Carlsbad. It’s located adjacent to their pizza brew pub and if I hadn’t parked below it, probably wouldn’t have known it was there. Very glad I did - cool place.

This place looked like what a beer nerd would design if s/he were putting together a store. Three walls of fridges surrounding a tasting area. The selection was excellent although they seemed to be a bit picked over when I was in. Prices were good and the staff knew their shit. I was in a bit of rush to catch the train back to San Diego, so I couldn’t linger nearly as long as I might have liked. Still, the best bottle shop I visited while I was in the San Diego area.
