This BevMo, on Lincoln Avenue in Willow Glen is one of (if not the) smallest BevMo I've visited. Selection is meager, and rarely has anything that the other three BevMos in town don't. The usual stuff is available, but little of it is cold and the special releases are few and far between. And the service is anything but helpful. Every time I've gone in, I've been treated coldly at best. I'm usually in the way of the employee and I'm forced to move instead of perusing the beers. Register service is rarely friendly. I know their beer selection isn't great, but that's no reason for customer service to follow suit. If you happen to be near by and needing beer, it's not a bad place to stop. But absolutely no reason, if visiting the greater San Jose area, to stop here instead of visiting the Camden BevMo, which is one of the three largest in the company.

This BevMo had "tick me" on it, as it sat conveniently across the street from where me and my bro got coffee at. From the street, one gets the impression that this BevMo is really small, and while there's more to find, it does get the dubious honor of being the smallest BevMo that I remember walking into. Clean and no frills on the inside. The beer shelf goes in a singular line, extending halfway down the store. You got your Belgians, Germans, and American offerings, though in comparison to other BevMo's, some brands have either been diluted in quantity or eliminated altogether. Somehow, I was able to land a bottle of both Stone Smoked Porter with chipotle peppers AND vanilla, and a few other offerings. The beers are kept in fine shape (as the chiptole pepper porter will tell you as I type this), so you could do a lot worse than checking out this smaller BevMo for beer.

This BewMo is for sure the smallest one I've been into yet. Its the closes one to my house, so it works for you average beer or liqour run. The selection is smaller, because of store size but it is decent. They don't have a lot of limited releases but sometimes you find one lingering on the shelf. Good selection of seasonal and basic everday craft beer. Overall a great quick stop, but I wouldn't go here looking for something specific. Service here does seem to vary day to day. Either none at all or really good service, no in between! Lol

This BevMo is in a small store front in downtown Willow Glen. It's a lot smaller than the BevMo's in the Cambrian neighborhood (at the corner of Camden and Union) and in the Blossom Valley (across from the Oakridge Mall, near the corner of Blossom Hill and Santa Teresa). As you might expect, the selection suffers as a result, especially in the import sections which are a little sparse. A very small amount of inventory is kept refridgerated. I still picked up a few good selections here, so if you in the area, a good place to go. But it makes absolutely no sense to pass either the Cambrian or Blossom Valley BevMo stores on the way here, since those stores have everything this one has and more.
