After our wonderful and flavorful visit to the Stone Brewery, this was the next logical stop. Its about 5-10 minutes away and then its easy back onto the highway to get back to the beach in SD. (Yeah it was a great week in SD, highly recommended for a beach and brew hunting vacation) This place was easy to find and a treat to check out. Many, many wine selections and a very healthy beer area. On shelves, in coolers, glassware, knowledgable and friendly staff.. Lots of Stone, Alesmith, other micro locals, nationals, Belgians etc etc. Tons of BA worthy choices. It's well worth the time to come here.

I graduated HS and grew up in Escondido, and whenever I come back to visit my family I always make a couple of stops here during my vacation. If you do not feel like stopping by one of the many breweries in the North County, you could always stop by Holiday Wine Cellar to find and pick up some unique beer offerings. For me, this is the best bottle shop in the North County of San Diego. Wen I stopped in last week during my last trip, I was able to buy Lost Abbey Track 8, Older Viscosity, Peche Mortel, Hopparillo, Swami's, and Belching Beaver Old Dirty Barrel. They even had Mogli, which I can never find in Northwest Washington. This place has a great selection of craft beer, plus it also sells wine, liquor, and cigars. The employees were helpful and mostly nice, one guy seemed like he was having a bad day, but he was still helpful. The only change I would recommend is, brighten the place up a little. Well...it is supposed to be a cellar...

What a fantastic store. I came out with almost 2 cases of a variety of delicious brews and the customer service was excellent. I received help and recommendations from two associates. Sadly I had to leave some items behind but it was a gem of a beer/wine/spirits store. Don't forget to check out their walk in cooler behind the beer coolers. They also have a rewards program where you can get some discounts later.
