Got off at Carlsbad Village Drive and drove only about a block or two, stopped here for one reason alone yesterday and that was the fact that they had Black Butte XX and 20th Anniversary Wit from Deschutes, could not find this stuff anywhere and was relieved to finally see some when I walked into this place, they had it in fridges and advertised out on the floor, location was literally right down the street from Pizza Port Carlsbad, huge selection but not really compared to the bottle shop or Holiday, still a nice surprise, spent twenty dollars on some change on those two bottles, this place had a lot of beer and mostly everything from down south in that area, even some older Lost Abbey beers, newer Belgians that recently made it into the United States, all the Bruery's bottles, Stone, Green Flash, Alesmith including the past two years of Decadence, Coronado, Lightning, Russian River, Firestone, Alpine, etc., place looked like a pretty standard liquor store with the cash register at the front, it was very clean which is expected more so in this area, lots of beer and I cannot emphasize that enough because i did not expect to see such a gigantic selection, will be stopping here from now on, especially when I go to Pizza Port, guy at the front was pretty cool and did not say much but friendly at the same time, a little expensive but worth it with the variety and rarity of some of the beers they are carrying

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.
