this place has great display of selection....except selections aren't something that are allowed on the shelves in San Diego let alone at all in any retail setting...think of a certain society from Orange County. Double Retailing is illegal...no matter how good and rare the beers are. I just don't recommend being here when the IRS shows up for double taxation

I went here for the first time to buy some Russian River beers and was amazed at the great selection they had. The last time I was there, they were selling Pliny for $5 but they did not include it in their special (Buy 5 get the 6th for a dime) which I thought was a little cheap and didn't go over well with another customer. The cashier was also rude about it and told him "everybody knows that beer doesn't count."

Prices are also higher here than other places. I paid $15 for a bottle of Supplication and you can get it for $13 at another local store. Overall though, they have a good selection but just expect to pay for it.

This store is right down the street from Pizza port. But not anywhere in their league.

The owner is a bit gruff and not exactly friendly. But there are a few guys who seem to be helpful, almost in spite of him.

This is kind of like a family liquor store/711 hyped up on steroids. Where they score big is their selection of craft brews. The have a surprisingly good selection of Great Divide yeti, Alesmith, Bruery, and even, gasp, Russian River Pliny ( but you do have to buy another beer if you buy one. So serious boo here ).

And though they do have a discount for six of more, ASK for a detailed reciept ( seems they occasionally "forget" unless prompted ).

Not much on atmosphere. But if you work fast, you can find a must-have brew here and there. Not worth hitting up unless it is in conjunction with Pizza Port. But go there second, the Port might already have it, and cheaper, too!
