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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
