Dropped in after dinner at Pizza Port next door. Interesting place, looks like an old auto garage or something. Small place with coolers on all the surrounding walls. The one employee was chatting with a friend who was eating dinner and didnt give me much more than a glance. Excellent selection of all the CA beers I would expect including Lost Abbey, Russian River, AleSmith, Pizza Port, Ballast Point etc. Found a bottle of Consecration tucked back in the back of one of the coolers.

Overall, a very nice selection of beers and a nice selection of glassware. Prices were a touch higher than what I had seen elsewhere. Overall, very good place though.

It's always nice to have a bottle shop around. No, it's not the most beautiful place, nor does it feature the largest selection, but they stock an impressively eclectic collection of good beers for so small a place, and enjoying a bottle right there is a plus.

As mentioned in another review, Texas Liquors, just down the street, does have a better selection. Love them too, but check the bottling date if you're buying something that is date-sensitive.

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.

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.
