This is a serious "why the fuck is this place on RateBeer" sort of place. The selection is no better than your typical corner liquor store of any other grocery chain.

Ended up just getting some liquid crack (energy drinks) for the rest of my drive home and some gas. The best part about this stop was that the gas station already had pretty cheap gas and using the gas rewards points meant I got gas for in the $1 range, which was a damn miracle.

Seriously, who added this? This is garbage. Stop adding garbage to the system. Yeah yeah, EVERY Safeway carries some beer, and almost all of them carry Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, Gordon Biersch, and now Speakeasy as well. But so does every gas station, liquor store, bar, and restaurant. I actually stopped here more for some pain killers (rotten teeth, really need that root canal, and soon) but figured I’d stop somewhere I could rate as well. Service, pricing, and selection are exactly the same as every Safeway/Vons: good, good, and bad respectively. Probably the most interesting thing there (aside from the Celebration 12-pack for $13.98) was the mixed 12-pack of the four Double Take beers that I may have to buy on the way back south.

Fuck you for adding this. Serious was of time.

If you like Genesee contract beers, this is the place. But so it seems is just about any Safeway. I wouldn’t count on getting anything interesting here.

Great selection of local micros for a grocery store. I love the sushi bar where you can pick up their fresh made sushi rools.
