Great shop! I stopped in while in CA on business. They had a lot to choose from. I picked up some Russian River Consecration and Pliny the Elder. There may be cheaper places but this was a great one stop shop. They took great care of me and made sure that my trip from the east coast resulted in some great takeout.

If you support violation of the 3-tier system and your wallet being emptied then shop here, otherwise go to a shop that charges fair prices and abides by state liquor laws. They have a great selection but I refuse to be overcharged on something I can get down the street for (at times significantly) less money, nor will I support such blatant violation of state law and purchase any out of distro beer from them. Such "rarities" and "bargains" lately have been Heady Topper @ $11/can and Bourbon Fred @ $15/bottle. Yeah...no. Much better spots in the Bay Area

I visited Perry's in Livermore and have followed them on instagram and facebook for a while. It is your typcal lquor store, nothing fancy. They focus on craft beer and have a solid selection but you quickly notice most beers are priced at about 20% over market value. It also appears that they buy and sell beers that are not from this market at a high premium. I have no idea on the care or quality of these items and they are cirumnavigating the three tier laws that are in place. I certainly won't be going back or supporting the price gouging of customers. If there is something you absolutely have to get it will probably still be sitting on a shelf here but otherwise there are plent of other shops around the bay that have as good of a selection and don't over charge.

My wife and I recently discovered this shop since we just moved to California. My wife described it as a "treasure trove" before I got to go and she is quite right. Their selection is totally mind-blowing. Diego took his time showing me around and clearly knows and loves his stuff. I took home a bottle of Labyrinth that he recommended and I loved it. The prices were a bit higher than you'd pay at a BevMo, but I think it's a small price to pay for the variety and service. I'd recommend this shop to anybody and plan to go back frequently when we go to visit the Bay Area.

This place is awesome! I was returning from a visit to LA over the weekend and this place topped all of the shops I stopped at while down there. Diego was very informative and helped us find things we might have missed otherwise. This is one of the most outstanding beer stores in the Bay Area. The prices aren't cheap, but they have held onto some limited release bottles you can't always get easily.

Dumpy liquor store that realized they can illegally resell beer purchased in other parts of the state to people in the East Bay for insane markups. Staff think they know everything and will gladly share some stories they made up for their "beer cred". Oh, Russian River is going to brew you a special beer? Oh, you got KBS shipments directly? Come only to look around and see what greed is.

I went here on a whim. I am from Chicago and to find such a large selection of West Coast and PNW stuff was amazing for me. I really loved how much selection there was and they have a few harder to find bottles for a guy from the MW. My only downside is that I am limited by the space available in my suitcase for the flight home. Might have to invest in a bottle shipper! Cheers!

This is a great liquor store with an awesome selection. I was told by a friend to check it out, and I was not disappointed. This place gets all the rare bottles as well as everything from most all of the California breweries as well as some great out of state gems and Belgians galore. I've gotten some amazing rare Bruery bottles here, as well as all the great California standards such as Russian River sours, and AleSmith beers. Whenever I am anywhere near the area, I make it a point to see Diego and Happy and talk to them about what they have, and what they're getting. Make it a point to seek this place out.
