Stopped here when visiting my friend in San Diego
Set up was different than most Trader Joe's stores I have visited in the past
Lots of Full Sail here for 5.99 a six pack, even had their LTD series there for the same price
A few Anderson Valleys (IPA and Amber), 4 Samuel Smith's, a bunch of their own brews, two of the Chimays, some Lindeman's lambics, and their 2006 Vintage Beer made with Unibroe
Small section of beer, noly 1/4 of a section, they had three whole different sections for wine
Decent beer for your money and Hop Ottin' is never a bad choice for 7.49 a sixer
Too bad this one did not carry Murphy's Stout like most others do
Would probably go back here if I was in the area again and did not have time or patience to visit another one of San Diego's fifty different liquor stores

Located a few blocks off of the I-5, this is like most Trader Joe's stores. This one is in one of the more up-scale shopping centre's I've been to. Good quality food & drink (generally organic and/or healthy, yet not obsessively so), with friendly employees. I didn't discuss beer with the employees (seems that I never do) but they seemed helpful and friendly.
Though they have a rather extensive wine selection, the beer selection isn't all that spectacular. It consists mostly of a small select number of American craft beers, some European imports, and a few imports from Asia or elsewhere. I picked up a bottle of their Trader Joe's 2006 Vintage Ale (which appears to have some connection to Unibroue -- I'm looking forward to it). They also had some Samuel Smith's beers; I picked up some of these as well. Sadly, some of the beer shelves seemed nearly empty. Though the selection seemed to be rather small and not so well-stocked (I may have just caught them on a bad day), I thought that it was generally of good quality.
The prices were very good, however. The Samuel Smith's beer were nearly $1 less than what I usually find them for, and everything else was quite reasonable as well. Although I probably wouldn't go out of my way to go to this Trader Joe's (at least not solely for beer), if I were in the area I would most likely stop by.
