I lived in Escondido for WAY to long before finding this place. Located in what seems to be an old family restaurant just adds to this place's charm. Upstairs, half of the store is dedicated to beer and the other to wine. This was the store that really assisted me in becoming obsessed with beer, having purchased many of my first premium bottles from here.
If you have a deep pocketbook and also enjoy the wine variety, take a venture down the spiral stairs to the stores cellar. Bottles easily go into the few hundred dollar range. Basically, I walked and witnessed, my wallet is a little light for those beverages.
Go check them out, support your local business, the beer selection won't leave you disappointed!

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.
