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.
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
La Mesa location. Fairly enthusiastic staff, perhaps too much so insofar as hoarding local special releases in the back is concerned. Staff not interested in beer is apathetic and efficient if you are lucky. Rather warehouse club ambience, complete with free samples of high margin snack foodstuffs. Excellent selection, nice to see a BevMo not afraid to stock traditional lambics. Prices remind me of buying video games at Toys-R-US as a child, i.e. selection and variety coming at a premium price.
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.

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.......
Real good selection of local San Diego brews and seasonals. Decent import selection with some different belgians coming in from time to time. I go to the La Mesa store about twice a week and there is always something new to try.
I been to 3 of them and id say La Jolla location was the most helpful and nice staff. Second place would be La Mesa location with a good friendly staff, and i found the Mission Valley services horrible. They have the cheapest prices on pints and 6 packs that i seen compared to everywhere else i have gone. Big selection of beer(a good 3 aisles, + a cooler) and glassware cups for the beers. The place i shop at most.
