Not much more I can add to the glowing reviews of this truly amazing beer store. I was lucky enough to visit Beverage 4 Less during a trip to California in July 2009. My compadre from San D. was unfamiliar with this store (I'd read about it on BA, of course)! We were kind of in the neighborhood, so I suggested a "quick" stop. Well, unfortunately, if anybody knows me, it's never a quick stop. Just ask brewslut about me and record stores.

Freddie is an amazing host and extremely proud of his shop. He spent a good hour talking with us, and he even sold me good wine shipping boxes at a very reasonable rate. Not only that, but he let me pick out "any bottle" in the store to crack open and share. He even said, "Don't be cheap!" While I was eyeing up the Rasputin Anniversary and Lost Abbey stuff, I maintained some sort of restraint and went with a bomber of Ballast Point Tongue Buckler. Plus he gave us fresh oranges! What a guy!

Needless to say, the selection here is ridiculous. If you come in here and leave empty handed, something is seriously wrong. They also have a pretty solid porn collection (if that's your kind of thing). Next time I am visiting the San Diego area, you can bet your ass I will be stopping in here to pick up some choice bottles.

This is my go to place for internet beer purchases. No one has a better selection than what Freddie offers. A lot of really good and rare beer that is unavailable on the East Coast and especially Miami. He is also a hell of a guy. Whenever I email him an order he immediately emails me back my tracking number. Always incredibly prompt and ordering is hassle free. The shipments are always expertly packed too. I have recommended him to everyone and will continue to do so without reservation. Call Freddie, you will be glad you did.

Great place, great selection. My family and I have known Freddie for years. Takes great care of his customers. Definitely worth a drive to check out the selection and try new brews. If you haven't been here you need to check it out. Pricing is reasonable for what you're looking for, especially if it is hard to find.

Fred is THE MAN! Outstanding selection, great service, good prices. I can call Fred at 8:00 in the morning and he has product shipping to me that day. Who else gets Heady, KBS, and BCS out on the West Coast?
Keep up the good work Fred! Your loyal customer Frank Costa.
