Stopped by here after the Pizza Port Strong Ale festival. Wanted to see if they had any goodies down here that I couldn't find at my local shop.

They have an extensive selection of great beers. Solid representation of California beers plus many out of state beers that are much harder to come by. Even had some Avery Mephistopheles stout just in. The vast majority of their beers are kept in refrigeration. Their glassware is extensive and affordable. The service was very friendly, even though not all of them are beer experts. All and all a great place with a great selection.

It does make me feel that much better about my local shop in Lancaster. Besides a couple Belgian's and the new Alaskan Smoked Porter, my local whole in the wall shop has an even better selection at better prices. Who would have figured.

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.
