Stopped in here a couple weeks back after leaving a Padre game early. The decor here is pretty minimal but it works. Better than average selection, although many beers were not kept cold (and seemingly not intended for on site consumption). Still, the two coolers had a nice selection. The guys working there were cool, willing to talk beer or just leave you be if you prefer. It was pretty quiet when I was in there, however very enjoyable. Prices are very reasonable. A seat at the window with a Class V to enjoy, not a bad way to spend an evening.

Bottlecraft is located at the upper end of Little Italy. Just North of Downtown San Diego.
They sell bottles to drink at the bar or to go.
Sort of like the Pizza Port Bottleshop.
There is an actual bar, with stools and they feature nightly flights. Nice to be able to sit down and enjoy rather than stand.
The selection is pretty good and so are the prices.
It is within walking distance of many restaurants, mostly Italian. Great place to go before or after pizza down the street.
Not all the bottles are in coolers. Most are on shelves. They currently have two coolers, one for North America, one for the rest of the world.
Good selection. Lots of locals, and a decent selection from Belgium and elsewhere.
They are really good about actually updating the website and Facebook daily to announce the flights for the night. I like that a lot since here in San Diego, there are a lot of choices.
This week, in honor of Belgian Independence they focused on beers from Belgium.
