Ok, why this store is listed on Beer Advocate is beyond me. They have your average selections that can be found pretty much anywhere. The did have Double Daddy, Samuel Smith and a couple Rogues, but these are not too difficult to find in Northern California. Go to the new BevMo which is only a mile or 2 away near the mall for selection and price that is the best in the South Bay. Not saying their selection is very rare at the BevMo, but for what the South Bay has to offer, it is the best you're going to get.

The guy working did not seem very personable - it may have been the heat or his mood that day, but conversation did not seem very inviting. Regardless, what would I ask him about the Sierra Nevada selections? (723 characters)

I walked into this place expecting a specialty shop and what I got was little more than a corner liquor store. The six packs were priced very high in my opinion and the beer selection left something to be desired. Sure this is bigger than a neighborhood 7-11 and carries a bit more alcohol but why in gods name would you go here when there are multiple bevmos nearby. I'm not saying bevmo is the best store ever (far from it) but I just absolutely did not like the vibe here. if youre looking to pick up a quick 40 oz go here but if you actually want any variety or reasonable prices avoid them like the plague. (611 characters)

I just realized that someone else edited my review of The Wine Fountaine. Someone must have logged in under my user name; deleted everything I said, replaced it with a bunch of hype; and changed quality, service, and selection to 5.0 ratings. So, what you're reading now is my REAL review of this joint...
This place really is not a liquor store for the members of Beer Advocate. Their beer selection is quite horrible. Unless you enjoy wine, just go ahead and continue to drive past this place each time you're on Pearl Avenue. Just pass it up, take a left on Hillsdale Avenue, drive about one and a half miles, continue on Camden Avenue for another two blocks, and stop at the Beverages & More!
MJ, one of the clerks, is a good dude when you get to know him. I'll give him props. (782 characters)
