In South San Jose, this is one of the best places around. Looks a little dingy from the outside but I never felt unsafe. Good all around selection. I've bought Sucaba and Black Tuesday from there recently. Prices marked up $1-3 or so.

This is a corner liquor store in a run-down strip mall storefront in older San Jose.

Pretty wide selection of craft, from new locals like Santa Clara Valley Brewing to distributed things like Boulevard, Prairie, Dogfish Head. Most beers are refrigerated.

Prices run $1 to $2 higher than everywhere else. They seem to have a Bruery Reserve membership, so they put out things like Melange No. 3 ($35), Sans Pangaie, etc. I was surprised to see Bois for $35 since it's $30 everywhere else.

They have a beermenus listing, but it's not super-accurate: a lot of things they claim to have, have actually been sold out for a while. And prices can be understated on there. The people that run the store don't really seem to know what they're selling, except they'll tell you ____ is rare, in a clear attempt to upsell.

Expensive, a little shady... But it's something; for a long time, San Jose had nothing.
