The selection here is top notch. Kind of a dusty old liquor store, but certainly some gems and obscurities to be had. Much of the beer is out on the shelves, but they have quite a few cooler doors as well. Tons of liquor available also. The service was sort of non-existent during my visit, but that was mostly due to a hyperdemanding customer asking a million questions. Really solid prices on the beers, very competitive if not cheaper than many places. If you’re willing to peruse the "warm" shelves, you can very well find some interesting new beers.

Made a quick stop in for first time. Place had a grungy feel. Had a nice selection of Belgium beers and American. Nice mixture of cold and shelved beers. Found some old bottles.

Have witnessed the paranoia of the staff in regards to "proper identification" and whatnot but it still cannot deter me from their extensive offering of alcohols. A strong international selection, haphazardly arranged for the customer... just awesome. Also, if you like whiskey or wine, you might be in the store for a really long time. GREAT prices.

Very glad we made to stop out here. A very nice beer and wine store with a great selection: Russian River, Lost Abbey, Alesmith, Fantome, 3 Fonteinen, Deschutes. Had cases of Abyss and new RR Santification bottles. Very nice selection of old Fantome Saison and Fantome Noel if you are looking for them. Pretty awesome place.

Don’t let the shady environs, initially paranoid Indian guy, and disorganization get to you - this is a great beer store. Good selection of Russian river, along with limited releases from locals like firestone walker. I picked up hoptimum there, and they also have a great selection of Deschutes and Colorado beers. Tougher to find east coast stuff, but you cant have everything I guess. Lots of glassware too. Prices are reasonable, similar to those at Berkeley bowl west. This is your local spot if you go to Berkeley.
UPDATE: My roommate tried buying beer there, as he turned 21 in December. He was told his license had expired and therefore his id must be a fake. Ten minutes of arguing + paperwork for his temporary license until he gets a new license yielded no results. These guys are flat out paranoid, so build a good rapport early if you can.

Fortunately, Ledgers is two blocks from where I live. They are pretty much the only place around to carry Pliny and Blind Pig, and they’re always fresh. They have a great selection. On the down side, it’s poorly organized, not everything is refridgerated (including some stuff that should be) and it sometimes feels like a garage sale. The selection, however, makes it worth it. After having been noticed as a regular, the two guys who work there (really the only two) are very helpful and generally nice dudes.

Great selection. Friendly service. This is a large convenience store, not well organized but with a number of interesting beers at good prices. I was stoked to find a case of Jever on the cheap and they had 3 different types of Polish bison grass vodka as well.

I ended up here because it was on the list of retailers that carried Russian River brews and I was very impressed by the selection of microbrews. If you’re OK with the layers of dust on everything and a somewhat disorganized beer section, this is a great place to hunt for rare brews. This is the first place in the Bay Area where I’ve been able to find AleSmith Beer and some of the less common Stone beers. Great selection of German and Belgian beer as well. Definitely the place to go for craft beer in Berkeley.

My favorite neighborhood beer store. Staff is knowledgeable and very, very helpful. They will go out of their way to get you matched with the right beer/wine/liquor. Selection is always outstanding. Mind you, they don’t have the best selection of beer in the bay, but pretty damn close. They work hard to get the best new releases and keep abreast of the craft brew movement, but with the mixed clientele from the surrounding South Berkeley area I am sure this can’t be an entirely profitable venture. Prices are good. I’ve noticed that bombers, 750 ml bottles and other singles are .25 to .50 cheaper than, say, Whole Foods. Which may not be much, but it shows that they aren’t trying to gouge the consumer.

nice easy to find place with a great bottle selection. things area lil mixed up, but they have plenty of goodies! some inconsistent price tags, some over priced stuff, but also some great deals on some reare finds! it was also really awesome that the guy gave me a free beer randomly ’i’m not gonna charge you for this one’. i won’t argue! lol! solid selection, and good quantities of some rare stuff too. worth a trip by, it’s only 5 minutes off the freeway.
