The store has a fairly large selection to choose from. Organization did not really seem clear to me, I pretty much wandering the aisles to find what I was looking for.

The employees are nice but not extremely knowledgeable and
helpful in locating items, which is disappointing. Overall
atmosphere of the place is nice though.

Not really sure if I would choose to go back to this place.
Other stores with smaller selection have staff that are more
in tune with products they are selling, which is a plus to me.

If you know what you want, this would be a good place, but
if you are looking to browse and try something new, choose
a store with a smaller selection but more knowledgeable staff.

Stopped in here yesterday with my good friend (and honorary wise man) Jorge.

How many BevMos have I been to? It's got to be getting close to twenty - no joke. This location is just like all the rest. Bet on finding all of the widely-distributed imported and domestic craft beers, plus a couple of options from smaller, local microbreweries. In this case, those local microbreweries are Hermitage Brewery (San Jose, CA), El Toro Brewing Co. (Morgan Hill, CA), Sudwerk Privatbrauerei (Davis, CA), Hoppy Brewing Co. (Sacramento, CA), Jack Russel Brewing Co. (Camino, CA), and Rabbit's Foot Meadery (Sunnyvale, CA). That's actually a pretty long line-up of locals, especially for a BevMo, though I'm not too fond of any of those breweries. I didn't spot any Deschutes specialties (most BevMos carry Black Butte XXI, Mirror Mirror, etc.), though I did find Old Rasputin XII, the Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary beers, and Alaskan Baltic Porter.

Service was typical: workers were friendly enough, but didn't know anything about beer. So it goes.

All in all, this is a very average BevMo. Don't expect to find anything exciting, but count on finding decent beer for just about any occasion.

The BevMo recently opened up in an old Tower Records store, acorss the street from the Oakridge Wall. Bigger than the Willow Glen BevMo, but a little smaller than the Union and Camden one. Still, the beer selection is about on par with the Union and Camden store. Again, micro brews are heavily weighted on the Pacific Coast, and a pretty diverse selection of imports. A god percentage of their inventory is refrigerated. The store would rate a B- or B on refrigerated inventory alone. As with all BevMos, it is a bit lacking in the service department.
