From the outside, this place looks fairly ghetto, but Iíve been surprised a few times to walk in and find some good Belgian and local beers in the cooler. Most of the time, the Stone and Alesmith goodies are available and on a reliable basis. Plenty of imports (mostly Belgian) to choose from, including more expensive bottles and magnums. Most smaller bottles have to be purchased in 6 or 4 packs, which is why I prefer the individual bottle basis of Holiday Wine Cellars in Escondido. But this place does the job if your just stopping by to do some quick browsing for good SoCal beers and common Belgies.

Nondescript place in a strip mall near the highway. One big beer aisle with lots to choose from local, regional, national and some nice international selection (only place in this area I saw any Cantillon).

Well stocked store with friendly service. Prices a little high, but you do get a volume discount at 6 and 2 bottles. Very nice variety of both SD beer as well as international and domestic brews. Definitely worth a visit.

World class bottle shop. The selection is the best I have found in the San Diego area. Loads of local stuff. Some Pliney on my stop. The guy working there was enthusiastic and helpful without being annoying, which is great. He told me and some other customers about the Goose Island Bourbon County stuff he was keeping behind the counter. The value is good to begin with but they also offer volume discounts: buy six bottles get the seventh for a nickel, buy 12 bottles the eleventh and twelfth for a dime. Not bad. Not bad at all. This place is a five-minute walk from Pizza Port Carlsbad so take them both in on one visit.

Walking distance from Pizza Port Carlsbad and across the street from 83 Degrees. Big parking lot. Huge interior that is stuffed with bottles and center shelf makes for a cramped experience. Almost everything is fridged though and they have a huge selection. Was able to find some Bruery RS only stuff for sale along with the new Almanacs. Hair of the Dog, normal Upright offerings, more bizarre imported stuff. Lots to take in. Prices were reasonable, nothing too shocking. They had Duck Duck Goose for sale in a locked cabinet, but I didnít dare ask the price.

Surprisingly good selection, most of it cooled. Buy 6, get a seventh for a nickle. Somewhat pricey but not too bad.

Huge selection in coolers and on the shelves. They have a buy 6, get the 7th for a nickle. Even at that the prices are on the high side, but the selection is worth it.

I used to visit this place every time Iíd go to Pizza Port but now itís more like once a year.

Plenty of beers available including some lesser hyped locals and of course the popular stuff that everyone wants. The owner knows a fair amount about beer so just ask if youíre looking for something. Over all the store is very small but in the small area theyíve managed to squeeze a lot of stuff in.

My only complaint is that the pricing has gone steadily upwards in the last couple years, not that it was ever "cheap" to begin with.

Just up the street from Pizza Port. Not a huge store, but quite the large selection. Unlike a lot of places, beer really seems to dominate. Huge selection of local San Diego beers as well as stuff from all over the state and world. Prices are on the high side here, though.

This place is a 5/10 minute walk from Pizza Port, so if you are in the area why not? An impressive selection of 500+ bottles awaits! Beer pretty much takes up half of this fairly sizeable liquor store. Most beers are bombers. Comprehensive selection of California and US, with a few gems like Alpine. European selection is also solid with harder to get stuff like LoverBeer sours. Prices were definitely on the high side in comparison to other places I visited in California. Even though the selection was massive I didnít see too many beers that I couldnít have got elsewhere. Still well worth a visit if you are in the area.
