La Mesa Location. My main spot for bottles around the time they initially opened. Before BevMo there were a couple mom and pop operations that really weren’t too bad. Once this one opened it pretty much blew them away with the selection. I just re-visited and their selection variety is the same or slightly worse than it was back around the time they opened. A little disappointing. This place does deliver on value compared to bottle shops in my home area (Tampa). I bought 8 bombers and a 0.75L for forty nine bones. At home a comparable purchase would have been seventy or more.
Kind of an uninspiring selection. I’m sure visitors will find new and interesting stuff, but as a local, it seems like every time I stop in they have just the same old stuff. If you’re nearby, I guess it’s worth a stop in, but there are better bottle shops in San Diego Country.
If you know your way around craft beers and imports this is a great place, huge selection. Only down side you can´t buy single must get the whole six pack.

Nice enough place. Big liquor store atmosphere... lots of choices but a sad lack of individual 12 oz bottles. Selection is a little better at other places in town and prices are higher on some things and lower on others. Local/regional selection was exciting for an out-of-towner, but European selection was a little weak (especially compared to PA, OH and MI stores I frequent.) That said, a worthy stop.
Good sized store with a lot of beer to choose from. Some pretty good deals at times. They can occasianally get into a rut with the new beer they bring in. Then there are times whn they get a lot of new stuff. Overall I would say this place will satisfy your need for news beers to try.
A big box liquor store. The staff is friendly and personable. They frequently stop their tasking to ask if they can help you find anything. The beer selection is better than average. I occasionally shop this location, a good selection of brews but nothing to write home about. The prices on their beers are always fairly priced, but not so the food. They offer snack type foods and some cheese, all of which are somewhat overpriced. Overall: A good store.
One of the bigger BevMo’s in San Diego. Huge selection of beer, lots of micros and Euros. Rarely do they have things that you can’t buy at the other stores. Drive a couple more miles and hit Beverages 4 Less if you’re looking for the hard-to-find stuff.

I visited the Bev Mo in LaMesa.....what a great place!! The selection or beer at this location was amazing..........They have great German and Micro sections......the staff was very knowledgeable....especially the beer guy Torry.......
A nice bevmo with a good selection of micro, and belgians. After going a few times it seems they dont get new stuff. Just the same they always get. So you can check back here monthly and you probably wouldn’t see much change in the rotation. I even went to get Elder, and Blind Pig when every other store already had it, and Bevmo doesn’t carry it. Something about not bieng able to promise cooler space is what I was told by a stock clerk. Decent though for common stuff you might be looking for if you are an out of towner. Best prices too.
La Mesa location was great. I like the supermarket openness but there were a number of items missing from the shelves where they were apparently sold out or hadn’t been restocked. Fantastic selection and decent pricing tho
