Stopped here on my to Alesmith yesterday and saw some good stuff that I had not seen anywhere else before

Bought a Full Sail Brewmaster's Reserve Old Boardhead Barleywine, Bear Republic Brown Tribute Ale, and an Avery Kaiser

Saw a bunch of goodies here, but could not spend too much before going to the barrel aged party

Carry a lot of Belgians here, have four fridges of beer (singles, 6 packs, bombers, 750 ml, etc.), but surpirsingly did not have too many local brews

Hoping to find some Alpine and did not see any

Have a nice selection of glassware

People were very helpful

Definitely worth checking out if you happen to be in the area

If you're looking to pick up some bottles of stuff that's hard to find, this is the place to go. Helpful staff, ridiculous collection, prices are fair (not as cheap as some, but those others don't have the breadth).

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...
