The Good: Featured flights of four bottled beers plus two taps. You can drink on site what you buy. Close to downtown.
The Bad: Small, Selection, while decent, is not terribly large. Corkage fee after 6 ($1.25).

Honestly, other than the featured flights and slightly easier parking, I'm not sure why anyone would go to Bottlecraft. It's not that it's a bad place, but with so many quality establishments in San Diego, you have to be better and/or different than the alternatives. While the atmosphere was comfortable, the staff and clientele gave me the impression that I wasn't hip enough to be there. Service was decent, I would have liked to talk more with my server about what the store had and what was recommended, but I couldn't tell whether I was deemed to different from the regulars to talk to, or they just didn't know. The selection was quality, but limited. Again, considerably better bottle shops in the area. Would I return? Given that Bottlecraft is relatively new, and that maybe I caught them on an off night, I might wait six months and give it a second shot.
