Highly recommended bottle shop. Stopped by on our vacation in Escondido. First time they were closed for inventory, d'oh! The next day they were open, woohoo! Walked in and was immediately greeted, I explained I was from out of state looking for some beer to take home. The lady walked me to the cooler where the beer guy was. Both were extremely helpful. I had never been to a true bottle shop before, pretty cool. I told the guy the same story and he literally went row by row asking if we had such and such beer and his thoughts on them. I ended up leaving with some phenomenal brews. When checking out I found out the clerk grew up a few blocks away from our house in Parker, small world. In any event the prices were reasonable and the service was great. Highly recommended.

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...
