Still signed as Del Cerro Liquor though run by K N B Wine Cellar this November day. Up and running with taps, wine tastings and food service, including a patio permit with smoking allowed. Passing through from a rare day in the area and after hearing of the on-sale license revision.
Surely wine-centric in nature given the distribution of space and with an interesting sliding library style ladder to access the upper reaches of the liquor shelves. Surely has potential.
Service is harried but with good intent. It was quite busy during my visit.
Selection is not overly robust but they do offer quality over quantity in that regard. Lots of newer releases and a selection that covers a broad range of countries and styles, though turnover is a bit suspect given the date codes of some brews.
Extensive options in the beer fridge which is kept quite cold, no need to rechill upon arrival home if for this evenings consumption. Standard options at room temperature, most of them offer no pricing information however. Given the prices I did see, I didn't seek out that info., not that there was anyone to seek out anyway.
Price? More expensive on every single beer/6 pack than I've ever seen anywhere! If they'll pop it and serve it to you on the patio that's great, maybe. For your standard takeout, ouch! That new license must have cost some bank. Basically, this place is a screw job. If you need it that bad, come and get it, and good luck to ya...
