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.

Love the wall of Beer, staff was very helpful. Had almost every selection I needed and more(No Alpine). Selection was off the charts. Will be back for more. PS a good Homebrew store in back corner.

large number of west coast micros with a solid import selection, most of them in a cooler, and most bottles seemingly fresh, though I was burned on some old bottles Logsdon Seizoen Bretta when I chose to stock up before leaving town the next morning.

It may not have the quantity of selection I’ve seen in some places, but it has some really nice quality, and a lot that I don’t see in AZ. Many of the beers are kept cold, and its still cool in the part of the shop where they aren’t. I could have spent another hour and a lot more money browsing.

Damn,this is really a great beer shop. Beers from all over the world. I think reasonable prices. The staff is helpful and friendly. I wish, I had such a shop on the corner of mine street.

Finhead  (23) OFallon, Illinois | August 11, 2012| Updated October 15, 2012
Very good selection of locals and imports / packages and singles. Most of the beer is sold cold, which didn’t work too well for a long trip home. Staff was friendly and helpful, but the prices seemed a little high.

Really good place to shop in San Diego, and you if you want small bottles you can mix your own 6-pack, which is really nice for ratebeerians. They had an impressive selection of imports, but also equally impressive selection of US brews. You can also buy malt and other stuff for brewing your own beer as well as it being a regular grocery. Prices are very good too.

Very nice selection of beers, though I missed some stuff (mainly american sours). Located close to the tram and quite good prices.

I’ve stopped by here twice in the past two visits to San Diego. Always a very solid bottle selection offering a ton of local and regional stuff. I noticed they no longer carried any alpine stuff which is a shame, but maybe I caught them at a dry moment. Still, lots of lost abbey, midnight sun, Pliny and de molen. Walkable if you’re downtown.

This looks like a cheap liquor store upon entering. This changes when the beer cooler is examined. This was the best selection I had seen in the San Diego area so far. Almost everything is kept cold as well. Prices are decent, especially considering it’s right downtown. Rarities, locals and the all important Pliny the Elder were here. win.

Hiding behind the facade of the Super Jr. Market is this gem of a store. The brothers who own this shop are serious beer nerds who have done an outstanding job fitting a lot of beer in a small space. This is the only store where I’ve gotten Pliny every time I’ve asked, even if it was only a bottle per visit. Other rarities will blow your mind (Lost Abbey, FiftyFifty, so on and so forth). They treat regulars like royalty so if you live nearby, stop here as often as possible!
