i echo the other comments, joey is the man! placed my order on new year’s eve and received it today all the way across the country here in virginia. packing was perfect with the beer shaped egg crates. and of course, great beer...pliny, HOTD, Sculpin, AleSmith, all on my wanted list and ones that we just can’t get on the east coast. absolutely the best mail order beer guy out there.

I have to give Joey a big thanks. I actually live in virginia and have been dealing with him on a nice shipment and from the beginning to the end he has been great and gave me a call to let me know that they were having internet trouble. Just exceptional customer service and the easiest way for me to get some of those california beers that do not make it to my state otherwise. I will be heading out to san diego probably next year so if I am able I will pay them a visit. Thanks guys!!!!

I have nothing but great things to say about this place. I live in North Carolina so getting my hands on some of the California beers is difficult. Joeyís customer service is outstanding. The selection is incredible. I did not feel like I was ripped off for shipping and the order I made was received in 1 week. Not bad at all. I will certainly do business with again.

The only thing I can honestly not give a top rating for is the ambiance. Not that itís bad, or anything, but the parking lot kinda blows, and itís in an older spot. The things I can honestly say can have no deductions are the service and the selection. Joey is amazing, ever since I started going in a year ago, heíll take the time to chat with me, tell me whatís new, and guide me to a beer I havenít tried just knowing my tastes. His off the shelf selection is always prime, and what he has in the cooler is top notch, as well. Iíll go to other stores out of convenience here and there. But if Iím in the area (which is close enough to my job to say that if I can pull myself away from work for a few minutes), this is the place I shop. And me? Iím kinda picky. ;-)

Just a great place to order beer. Joey is on top of things. He does a great job letting us know what is available. This allows me to get in on some of the more rare releases that I otherwise would have missed out on. I would not hesitate to order from here.

I was been lucky to stop by to see Joey when I went to San Diego for vacation last summer. Iíve ordered from him a ton through mail order but it was finally nice to meet the man. Hell of a nice guy. Great service, really good selection of West Coast stuff I would never see without him.

Online order. Joey (KingG) is the man! Great guy, excellent communication, packaging, etc., and especially for someone from Kansas, the selection couldnít be finer! The eco-friendly shipping materials is also a plus in my book, and everything arrived in great shape.

What can you say about SB, great west coast selection, I just wish Joey would quite sending me those emails that cause me to want to order more beer, great follow through and packaging

I heard that they were getting older viscosity (via their helpful and often updated website) http://southbaydrugsandliquor.googlepages.com/ I E-mailed Joey and he got right back to me and told me exactly how to make sure I could get some. A couple days later Iíve got a beer I thought I wouldnít see for a long time on my doorstep. This place is the HOOKUP for Lost Abbey and Port Brewing stuff via mailorder. Iím going to make sure I keep up with their website which is updated almost daily as Joey does an excellent job at nabbing and selling via mailorder some of the more sought after beers. Also, their paper pulp molded wine bottle / beer bottle shipping material for the beer was very professional and should be the de-facto standard for ratebeer trades in my opinion. Thanks Joey, You rock.
