I have stopped here about four times now and I always find something good, it is literally right next to the bar and pizza place, whether it be a hard to find SD local or some other hard to find beer, tons of imports, some of the breweries they carry are Port and Lost Abbey of course, Alesmith, Stone, Green Flash, Mad River, Cantillon, Deschutes, Lightning, Coronado, Ballast Point, Sierra Nevada, New Belgium, Firestone, and many more, they have it all, some of the beers I have gotten in the past were Abyss, Lightning Old Tempest, various Jolly Pumpkins, and more recently Malheur 10, they have given me samples almost every time I am in the year of whatever they happen to be drinking, wish I would not have missed their vintage Stone bottle sale a few months back, they have keep some cool empty rare bottles along the window and I drool every time I look at the Cable Car with no contents collecting dust, place has like six or seven fridges in all, each stocked with great beer, prices are some of the best in the area, you can buy singles as well, they have held some cool tastings and have a cool staff, I even saw Vinnie in there last time, place is clean and small, you can even drink a beer you buy right there in the store and the stand up bar, they provide you with glassware and will sit and talk beer with you for as long as you possibly want to, I truly enjoy going to this place every time I am nearby

This would be a great Bottle shop on its own, but combine it with the Pizza Port located next door and it is a match made in heaven. Great selection, and awesome outside area to enjoy a few brews with your food from next door.

I don't know what I would do without this place. My man Chris has never let me down on a good recommendation no matter what I was looking to get into. A great selection in a great spot. First lead into Stillwater, Jolly Pumpkin, Pliny, Logsdon, Mad River, Knee Deep,the selection is enormous!

I decided to walk over here while we were waiting for our pizza next door. Atmosphere was decent, one or two people milling around looking at bottles but other than that it is a typical bottle shop. Quality was pretty good. I didn't see any out of date bottles and they had some nice glasses but the space seemed a little rough around the edges. Service was good, typical "do you need any help," but I was just browsing. Selection was solid, lots of different beers from all over the world with plenty of local options represented as well. I did see a few bottles I would be interested in but the prices were a bit high for my tastes so I passed on them. Overall a nice bottle shop, definitely worth the stop if you are going to Pizza Port but I wouldn't go out of my way to stop in.
