Ordered rather large order by combination of phone and email. Julian is top notch. Very helpful, friendly, extremly responsive. Offered some recommendations, which i am excited to try. Selection was absolutely outstanding. Inventory was up to date. Shipping was ridiculously fast. Packed nicely. Prices are fair. Finally got ahold of one of my bucket list beers which is impossible to find in the midwest. Will absolutely be doing businessagain. They have earned a loyal customer here.

Not sure why this place is not higher rated. I suspect some competitor bashing in the reviews, because on its merits this is an impressive store. Nothing too shocking in stock, but they have a great selection of California, US, and international craft brews, including several Alpines (which are incredibly hard to find anywhere outside of the brewpub), and strangely enough refrigerated vertical epics from 07-07 to 11-11. I paid $10 for an 08-08, which I thought was pretty damn good. Most of their stuff is in the fridge as well. The one knock I would give it is that I do wonder a bit about freshness; they had a full row of Yulesmith Summer in the cooler in November; that canít be good. Otherwise a great place. And they use RB logos!

Great online service and communication via email and phone. Julian makes the process fluid and painless. Incredible selection including Russian river and alpine. Boom daddy boom!

Contacted Julian and he set some stuff aside on my drive into San Diego. Right off of I-10 and the selection is staggering. Easily one of the best selections I have seen in a single store. Huge California selection to include Alpine, RR, with some rare Lost Abbey and Kern River and an equally impressive import section with plenty of sours. Prices seemed very reasonable and after visiting other SD bottle shops the prices here are average if not a little lower than most. Will stop here again!

Didnt take long to find a reliable source for west coast bombers. Julian found me and offered to ship before I pay. That was a no brainer. Picked up some RR Pliny, Blind Pig, Row 2. Ballast Point Dorado and threw in a local bomber of Green Flash Imperial.
