I visited here recently on a trip to San Diego. It is a great bottle shop with a good wine selection, as well as a bar that serves food. It's a nice place to visit, especially if you have someone with you that prefers wine to beer, you can get both at the bar. We had some great guacamole, a pint and a glass of wine.
The selection wasn't the largest of the bottle shops I visited in San Diego, but they did have three bottles of Supplication which I quickly purchased. Of the four bottle shops in San Diego, I visited, this was the only place that had Supplication. Service was friendly, but not overly so.

Made a stop here to see what I could find that wasn't available back home, did not find to much, although the selection was good it was not amazing. I probably should have been more pro-active and asked for those that I was after (Russian River, etc.). I had an average experience and would probably go again if I am in the area.

One of my favorite places to stop when visiting. I don't have annoying people coming to me telling me what I should try that's new from CA breweries and instead I get an awesome selection with an always awesome tap list! Food has always been great and I just love the vibe I get when I'm in the store. Would recommend stopping here for lunch and something delicious on tap either before of after you shop for some great bottles.

Stopped in here for Russian River and Alpine bottles to bring back to Boston with me. They had neither. I was told that they did have some but it's released during big beer release weekends that weren't happening any time soon. This whole idea irked me but hey, it's theirs to do what they want with it.
Despite not having what I was looking for the place has a massive selection of beer, wine & liquor. Don't get me wrong, the beer selection really is good at this place and I bought a couple of nice bottles but after reading all the reviews mentioning RR I was disappointed.
Also had a cheese plate and a pint out on the patio with the wife. This was a nice touch and it's a very nice option for a liquor store to have. The infused cheeses were ok, the Stone Enjoy By IPA was excellent.
Call ahead if you're hunting for anything specific.

This place is a must stop if you have access to a car in SD. Located a bit up the highway near San Diego State, we stopped in at the beginning of a road trip day during our vacation.
Nice looking place, well laid out, easy to find your way around. The selection was outstanding. We maxed out our beer buying budget with great craft selections. Highlights were the Upright 7 and a whole slot full of Damnation Batch 23 (we bought 6).
Service was very pleasant. Stone was making a delivery while we were there and some of the case boxes were blocking the shelves we were looking to check out. The guy was very quick to move the boxes so we could see everything (and buy more).
Check it out!

After a trip in Palm Springs (the liquor store in nearby La Mesa, not the desert city), I thought I had seen it all. Not so. With an never ending itenarary as I crawled closer back to Orange County, the talk of KnB grabbed my interest.
High ceilings and long, tall aisles make you feel small inside this alcohol heaven. It's clean, reasonably lit without burning your eyes, and rustic. There's a bar in one corner of the store with over 20 different beers on-tap, but I wasn't here to drink. I was here to purchase bottles. Roughly half of the beer in bottles are refrigerated, all tagged with pricetags, and neatly displayed. Friendly employees worked the beer as I looked around.
Brands include but not limited to Dogfish Head, Lost Abbey, Ballast Point, Lightning, Theakston, The Bruery, and surprisingly Jester King. There must be at least 500 lables to choose from.
Quiet location, lots of beer to choose from, draft beer available to drink there, and good looking food served. What's not to like?
