Have been going here for a little while now. Fred is a really cool guy and has a great selection of beers in stock. If he doesn't have exactly what I'm looking for he always recommends something else to try and has been spot on in every recommendation. Will continue going here for a long time to come.

Just completed my first order with Fred, he's the man!! Selection is second to none and order was processed the same day. When my first choice was sold out, found Fred to be very knowledgeable in offering a highly rated substitution. Strongly recommend giving them a shout!

Very happy with this store and the person I talked with on the phone, Freddy.
He had a few rare beers that I can't get in Colorado, so I ordered 6.
You may pay a little extra but great service and a knowledgeable person to advise you can be very helpful.
I will be a repeat customer!

Freddie is the man. Such a nice dude. You can tell he loves his craft. I've been a repeat customer many times over (online). You're not going to find much better place to buy beers. He'll go out of his way to talk beers and help you find new things that you haven't tried before as well.

I'm from Ohio and I was looking for a beer shipper out of Ohio that could sell me beers I can't get in Ohio. So, I discovered the Beverages 4 Less a couple months back, signed up for the email list and started following the FB page. Since I was planning a trip to San Diego, I decided to stop by and get a sense of the owner directly before I ordered anything. So I met Freddy, told him my story (Ohio, etc) and we hit it off right away. He had a scheduled tasting the Friday evening I was there and I enjoyed the three planned beers. Then Freddy started opening other beers (excellent, difficult to get beers) like Pliny the Elder, GI Bourbon County, and others not ever seen in a retail place in Ohio. He was very generous and eventually I started turning down beers since I was feeling like I was taking advantage of the hospitality.

We continued a great conversation about beers and such. Freddy recommended a couple local bars to enjoy great beers.

Anyway, I did end up buying six bombers and had them shipped back to Ohio. The prices were as expected. The shipping was what is was - Freddy had no control over that. The beers damn near beat me back to Ohio. They arrived in mint condition.

I will buy more beer from Freddy and Beverages 4 Less as time goes on. Next time I'm in San Diego, I will definitely stop by and visit with my friend Freddy.

Thanks Freddy.

I recently made my first purchase from Beverages 4 Less. I get the weekly/daily news letter from Fred and finally gave him a call to order some great hard to find beers. Fred is a very polite and knowledgeable man. Made ordering very easy and I appreciated his polite demeanor. When in doubt give these guys a shout, they know beer and how to get it to you.
