Pretty much across the street from Pizza Port Bressi Ranch. The booze section is located pretty conveniently straight ahead of the entrance. The usual house brands are available here as are a nice selection of local beers from Alesmith, Modern Times, Port, Pizza Port, Stone, etc. The prices are quite good, as usual, as well. Friendly service, clean store, all that jazz. Pizza Port cans (and most other things) are slightly cheaper here than other places.

Very close to Pizza Port Bressi Ranch. Ample parking in the Bressi Village shopping center with many different stores and restaurants. Beautiful garden/park. Trader Joe’s in California must be on a totally different level from what I’m used to in Maryland- just so much good wine and beer. An incredible selection with very low prices for higher end wines as well. They have 4-5 TJ house beers for very cheap as well as special releases like Alesmith Bloody Valentine and Stone Enjoy By. Nothing was in coolers though, but it wasn’t languishing in the heat by the windows either. Prices great, staff friendly. I guess I’m about to get really spoiled with TJ’s over here. Looks like everything was able to be bought as single bottles even if it came in six packs so you can try whatever you like. Some of the beers available I’d never heard of before- mainly German beers.
