One of the four bottle shops I visited while on vacation in San Diego recently. It is in downtown with some homeless around, but honestly more of hassle for me was the parking. However, I'm a bigger guy and could see how some would be more nervous around some of the downtown crowd. At one point, my wife walked back to the car, to refill the meter, because of how long I was spending in there and she was not happy with the downtown crowd when she got back. So, I would say, if you are squeamish about homeless people in a downtown area, this might not be your spot, but not the bottle shop's fault for society's failures regarding the homeless.
As for the shop itself, great selection, once approached the beer guy in the store was very friendly and helpful. Nothing over the top, he didn't offer anything from the back or from his stash, but friendly and seemed knowledgeable. If you are in San Diego, worth a stop if you are near downtown, but not necessarily a must stop.

I was absolutely blown away by both the service and the selection at this spot. The location is great for out-of-towners staying downtown, and it was a reasonable walk from my hotel on J and 6th (even toting a case full of beers purchased at the shop). Sid is unbelievably knowledgeable, and he made this southerner feel right at home in SoCal. I was only in town for three days, and I stopped in everyday, largely because Sid was such an awesome guy... oh, and the killer selection did not hurt. If you are anywhere near downtown, then do yourself a favor and stop in.

I briefly visited this store during a business trip since it was only about a 10 minute walk from my office. I completely forgot it was inside Krisp, so I kept walking back and forth because I had the general location, and I was looking for a beer shop and not a market. :)
I thought the selection was on par with the better bottle shops I visit in the Los Angeles area.
I'll spend more time at this store during my next visit and update my review. I was initially impressed.
