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. (1,079 characters)

Friendly helpful staff. Plenty of good stuff, and you can get a mix-six. Prices are a little high, and the selection could be better, but all in all, good place, and less than a block away from the Ballast Point Tasting room. (228 characters)

Stopped in after visiting Ballast Point tasting... great place and awesome selection, especially one of my new found favorites The Lost Abbey... they even had some of their Angel Share Ale, which I would recommend getting before they are gone. They were willing to ship anywhere in the states also which is helpful. Staff very nice and helpful too. (350 characters)
