Pretty good selection of local brews as well as Belgians. I can always find something new and interesting there. I hear they get Russian River Supplication there but hide it in back.......not sure.

Smaller space but solid selection. Somewhat strange layout. Good prices in general. Needs to be reorganized, me thinks.

This place is pretty tight. About 150 bottles with lots of selection from Bruery, Alesmith, Coronado, and a bunch of other Southern California micros. The free cheese sampler across from the beer cooler didn’t hurt either. It’s a pretty decent spot to grab a few bottles.

I knew this place was down here somewhere and I just happen to walk by. I’ve been to a half a dozen Whole Foods and this one is just about the worst for beer selection. If you are stuck downtown and want a six for your hotel room it might be worth a look. You may be better off just hitting some of the watering holes in the area.

Pretty good selection of beers including Belgians. Friendly staff. I’ve bought beer from them a few times and keep going back. Good selection of high quality groceries too.

Similar to the La Jolla store, but a smaller selection. This one tends to have more Belgians. Not many rarities found here, but still a decent place to get a sandwich and a beer.

Lots of selction on imports and micros. Singles will be sold as well. Not as big of a selection as Bevmo, but nice to be able to do some grocery shopping at the same time.

Decent selection in the cooler, a few micros and imports I have not seen around. They have a mostly Belgian section away from the cooler that has a pretty nice selection. Lots of big bottles including Alesmith brews.

Ambiance in a grocery store? Sure. This is in a friendly part of town, so it’s easy to meet people. The beer selection is good and the food is as well. I’d go to Beverages & More for just beer, but this place is okay if you need some gourmet items such as chocolate, cheeses and deli stuff.
