Awesome bottle shop in downtown San Diego with an extensive selection. Main girl at the counter doesnít seem to know anything about craft beer, but there is a guy in the back who deals with the beer I guess and is very helpful. Selection of lambics was surprisingly excellent as (3F, Hanssens, etc.), as well as imports (lots of Mikkeller). Prices are standard for San Diego. Definitely seems like the place to go when bottle shopping, though I donít have a point of comparison locally.

Great eclectic selection of beers. Would prefer to see more in the fridge though. Catch them on a Friday for any chance of Pliny The Elder.

Itís a good thing the beer selection here was decent, because the grocery store was pretty crappy. About half the selection was in a cooler and available as singles, the remainder was on shelves and there were definitely some things sitting around getting old. Was rather impressed with the range of lambics.

Iím going to go out on a limb and say this is the best beer shop Iíve ever been to. Great selection including many rare ones and Sid is very, very helpful. He directed me to a few really special ones that I hadnít thought of myself and even suggested if I come back I should ask for a couple of others. Now, if I only lived in San Diego...

Come to Sid the kid. See him at Krisp for the best selection of beer in downtown San Diego. If you are overwhelmed by the craft beer selection do not fear, Sid will steer you clear to what ever your palette desires.

Visited June 22, 2013.

Wow, the selection is pretty impressive here. Lots of stuff that I enjoy as well as a ton of stuff that I have never tried. They had at least two cases of the new Fantome Extra Sour Dark on the floor. The service was pretty good too as we were asked several times if we needed help or were looking for anything in particular, though that may have been because they were closing up for the night.

Kind of a weird set up. Basically inside a grocery and liquor store itself. Enormous beer selection with tons of great local beers and a very impressive selection of imports as well. Lots of Belgian and Scandinavian stuff. Really good liquor selection, too. Pricing is pretty average/typical. Helpful service, too.

Amazing bottle shop located within a grocery store. The owner was friendly and helpful in sifting through the amazing selection. Lots of cooler space and room temp shelves. Definitely a must stop if in downtown SD.

Conveniently located near the airport, this shop carries a large stock of great beers, including Belgian beers and some very rare San Diego area brews. The staff is friendly and helpful.
