This place is quite odd. On the outside it looks like a standard mini mart in a seedy area. Pretty much the kind of place you go into and hope that no one robs you while you are there.
However inside they have a selection that rivals some bottle shops and incredibly cheap growler fills.
The selection includes stuff like the Boulevard Smokestack series stuff, pretty much all the Russian River sours, stuff like Kentucky Dark Star by local breweries, reserve series stuff by Deschutes ect.
Overall while its not as good as places like Bottleworks and 99 bottles it is a close second, and well worth seeking out.

So.... Just to clarify, though most growlers they put out are $10, not all. Be sure to ask on the rare kegs what the charge is, but usually its under 25 regardless...

From what I hear this place is under new management. Just hope they keep up the good selection. Just beware and look at release/bottle dates on the beers you don't want aged! I've seen ipas in there over 2 years old- not so great!!

Gas station convenience store without the gas. Only six taps, but every growler they fill is $10, every pint they serve is $3. Very good bottle selection, keep your eye out because they stock some shelves with rare/vintage items. Pretty impressive place.

Minimum of 5 beers on tap and always rotating (never have seen the same beer twice), cheap growler fills, great sandwiches that are quite affordable and filling...much more to say but others chimed in similar sentiments to my own. The owner Minh (sp.) is super knowledgeable concerning beer, especially the rarities and oddballs. I brought him a few beers from out-of-state and he almost gave me the title to his home, point being, he will not forget what I did and I will not forget how happy he was, good for both of us. Friendly customers, no doubt, especially considering that IT IS A CORNER GROCERY STORE .

I purchased a beer that poured totally flat (and it was not supposed to), it must have been mishandled during transport, I called Minh 3 days after purchase and he assured me that he would let me pick out another beer for the same price or another of the same kind. Even though he was not there when I stopped by, the staff called him to confirm what I was telling them, which I not only understand but respect. The boss assured the chap who was calling him that my words were true and the rest is history, no questions. Honest folks who love beer, what else can you ask for? Other things but all answers are positive in regards to SDM.

Also, great beer selection, rare and odd, ciders, barleywine, etc...all at a reasonable price and turnover is big so pick up what you want when you see it or it might be gone. I do not Tweet or FB so I wish they had a email list like Beer Junction but I am still happy to be a customer of this joint. Cheers!

UPDATE 2.13.13...after visiting multiple times before and after this review, I had to lower my ratings after the last visit. I witnessed the owner completely berate an employee while talking about what was important for the business. His attitude will keep me from going back unless something super rare is there...I understand that things get hairy sometimes but Minh's behavior was simply unacceptable.
