Simply Sublime, Dave is incredible, his beer selection borders on ridiculous. I drink motor oil and sours, he has a sick collection, and new arrivals in all the time. His collection of Almanacs, Russians, and specialty imperials is wonderful. Greatfully it is only 2 miles from my house.

Visiting San Diego from Idaho so I thought I'd check out some bottle shops while I'm in town, my friend had mentioned Distillers Outlet in Poway, being that I was staying near by I thought I'd have a look. Wow the selection and service was awesome. I started talking to David who was a big help, he is super friendly and knowledgeable. I enjoy Barrel aged stouts so he pointed me in the direction of a few really nice ones.Overall great experience, if you are in the area or even if you aren't Distillers Outlet is worth seeking out.

This place is by far the best bottle shop around in terms of service. These guys really know their stuff. You can tell how passionate they are about their product and they never gouge, even on extremely rare beers. It's a bit smaller of a place so their selection is not as great as some other places, but they somehow almost always have what I am looking for. Keep in mind that they also keep a lot of stuff in the back, so don't be afraid to ask about any particular brews.

Great beer store with a pretty solid selection. The owner of the store was super nice, friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. He even went out of his way to hook me up with some special beers from the back even though I'm not a regular and I was visiting from out of state. Definitely worth a visit.

So you would never really think to go to Poway, but this place changes that! This spot is one of the best bottle shops in San Diego. These guys are super nice, and very knowledgeable. They aren't just some dudes selling beer, they respect the craft and you can count on them to get you what you're looking for. If you're not sure what you want, just tell them the style you like, and they will make sure you leave happy.

You can find all of the great Cali stuff here, Russian River, Almanac, Hangar, Ballast Point, Alpine, etc. etc. They also have some hard to find items as well. The selection is outstanding. As far as pricing goes, they have some of the fairest prices on the market. That's not to say that you won't leave without spending a ton of money, but that's just because of the crazy selection.

If you're looking for something they don't have (which is rare), just ask them and they will do their best to get it for you.

If you're in San Diego, or here just for vacation, you need to go and check these guys out! I've said it before, they are some of the best dudes out there, and you will be happy you went.

Now excuse me while I go re-up on some delicious craft beer.

Cheers!

Went to distillers outlet for the first time and had amazing service. They had a relatively hard to grab bottle in stock at a good price. Better yet the owner never stops smiling and is really helpful with his advice on things to try. Also the team updates their instagram regularly so its easy to see new bottles in stock. I will definitely be returning!

I've spent most of my life in NYC with access to some great bottle shops, as most know the sheer quantity of beer shipped to Manhattan is quite large. That being said, no bottle shop I've been to on the east coast can rival this place. They have just the right amount of variety and everything they carry is of great quality. You could literally walk in there blindfolded, pick a bomber off the shelf, and would not be disappointed. The real value, however, is the staff and specifically David who is clearly a beer geek through and through. I went in to quickly look around and wound up talking to him for an hour and spent almost $100. Highly recommend stopping in this shop if you are in the area, and absolutely make a point of talking to David, you will not regret it.

Every beer enthusiast within a 20+ mile radius of Distillers Outlet needs to check this place out. Don't be turned off by the weird location in a strip mall in Poway. This place is like Disneyland for beer nerds. Both David and Derek are super knowledgeable about beers and can assist any palate. Don't be surprised if you find rare one-offs here. You can follow them on Instagram (http://instagram.com/distillersoutlet) to hear about new releases. During Christmas time a 12 day of Christmas promo where he releases amazing rarities once a day. AWESOME. TRULY AWESOME PLACE.
