My new most favorite liquor store in San Diego. Bought a ton of stuff and negotiated a 10% discount. He actually gave me a little more off. These guys are just great. Yeah, so Double Bastard was selling for $6.99, but he said he had to buy it from somewhere else just to service his customers. Nice, large Belgium selection and just about everything local that's available in 22's.
Very interesting place to visit with bottles covering the wall all the way to 20’ ceilings. Can you imagine a bottle falling from up there. Good selection of beers, including some older stuff. Bought a 5yr old Hair of Dog Adam that had gone sour, and some other common stuff.
The selection at Keg and Bottle seems to vary depending on the time of year...I’ve been in there when they have a great selection, including pretty much every Cantillon beer available in california. I’ve also been inthere when they didn’t have anything exciting at all. The one thing I definitely noticed is that they are a little pricey.

This is my favorite beer store when I don’t want to drive all the way up to Escondido. I can get many different imports there plus tons of micros. Great place.

This place has seen some changes over the years, but it still remains fairly solid, with a good selection of West coast micros, English, German, and Belgians. The owner is personable, and seems enthusiastic about improving his selection. However, like Mesa Liquor, some of the beers have been sitting on the shelves for awhile. So, take your chances on the older ones. The prices can be ridiculous on some items, but it's still one of the better stores in the main SD area.
Odd liquor store. Everything is a little overpriced, but there are some solid finds here. A good selection, with a lot of rarer beers. I found a 2003 MacTarnahan’s Bourbon Cask Cream Porter last time I was there. This does mean some stuff is really old, though. Good selection of Rogue products and Belgians.
They have a good selection of singles. Local’s, Belgian’s, etc. But the place is dirty, the staff is unfriendly, and the prices are high. That said they do have some good bottles and conveniently close to SDSU.
Keg and Bottle is convenient because of its proximity to the San Diego State University campus. They have a fairly wide selection of beer, and a really wide selection of liquors. The store is rather small and cramped, with alcohol lining the walls from floor to ceiling. It is a little dirty and the staff didn’t seem very friendly. My major gripe is how expensive everything there is... seems liked they jacked up all their prices at least 25% above retail, most likely because of its proximity to campus. Because I don’t have a car, I would occasionally drop by, but I would much rather go to BevMo.
Good selection of brews. Alot of stuff I haven’t seen anywhere else. Lots of imports from everywhere. Lots of micros as well. Some stuff looks ancient. Be wary on some of the prices. Some good deals and some toatal rips. Overall they have some pretty interesting stuff.
