Popped in during my vacation after a recommendation by Loews hotel concierge and BA research. This place felt special. It's nearly all beer and the exceptions were some ciders and there may have been meads. There's a lot of calculated mood lighting and I like that while there are beers on the shelves on the wall,there are also lots of shelves set within the middle arranged at angles to encourage exploration. They an amazing selection. I did not have time to crack anything open from the cooler and enjoy it. There was one guy behind the counter and he answered questions when I asked. I did take into account he had a few people at the bar on the other side of him so he can't exactly walk over to assist.

I've been to this shop several times and I sort of wish we had something like it in Denver. I know its not feasible given the difference in our liquor laws but a boutique bottle shop is pretty cool. Nice that you can pop a bottle here and drink it for a corkage fee.. Selection is pretty damn good and I even bought a Cantillon taster glass here once. Pretty much a must visit when I'm in San Diego.

This place is great. Tons of selection. We did a local flight and had a great time talking to the bar tender and the people around us. This is a community place that would be great for date night or just having a fun evening with friends. They had a great selection of local beers, a great selection of domestic beers, and a lot of Belgium beers.

Popped in while at Toronado and was actually disappointed in their selection. While they do have a wide selection of beer for a store selling beer, they had nothing special and nothing I hadn't seen anywhere else. In fact, they were the only shop that I visisted all weekend that I didn't buy anything in or have a desire to return on a next trip.

I loved the vibe, very "hip" and great placement. Guy at the counter was very nice and answered a few questions for me. Only thing I didn't like were the other people in there looking for the highest ABV beers to get "faded" on that night. Oh well, not their fault. If they REALLY step up thier selection, I'd be happier. Overall, a place to stop in when in the area but I wouldn't go too far out of the way for it.

I only went here once but my impression is they have a sweet selection but as with anything you gotta pay to play. They were just a bit pricey but the location they maintain allows for this. I will say I was able to get Jester King Weasel here and at that time I really was wanting to try that. Selection overall was impressive and the inside was pretty cool as far as atmosphere.
