Located right next door to Port Carlsbad. While the restaurant was much bigger than I expected the bottle shop was much smaller, but who cares with the selection they have. The selection isn't huge in raw numbers, but they have the creme de la creme here. Saw Boulevard brews which I've never seen in CA. Picked up an Alaskan Barleywine, a '96 Gale's Old Ale (13 years old!), and a Sinebrychoff Porter (never seen in CA). Service was good and the cashier rung me up quick, I didn't need any help picking out my beers though. I was low on cash and only spent around $20, but I could have spent a whole lot more. (610 characters)

I would agree almost word for word with Bfarr's review three years ago. If you're at the Pizza Port and want to pick up something to take home, it would be the logical and convenient place to go. Otherwise I'd suggest Texas Liquors a few blocks east for a vastly better selection and about the same issues with old bottles.

Wide array of southern California breweries, though not a lot of depth. I did not find much of interest to me, even though they are so close to the Vista and Escondido brewing centers. But it's worth a visit if you're having a taste in the next-door beer garden. Though that suffers by comparison with the expansive outdoor spaces at Bagby just up the coast highway in Oceanside. (704 characters)

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. (229 characters)
