Very clean store (new inside), parking is adequate, somewhat spacious inside and in between the aisles. There are public restrooms right next to the beer section.

Plenty of the staff walking around and the Cashier was hospitable.

Decent selection of American, British, Belgian, and German micro. Lots of bombers however no Eight Ball Stout. There is a refridgerated section as well. The keg options filled the whole page and had E. J. Phair and Tied House options also some British, Belgian, German, and lots of Amercan micro and some macro selections.

The Fremont BevMo is a BevMo. They have a pretty good selection of foreign beers, including many Trappists, a huge selection of German beers, etc. I'm sure none of it hard to find, but having it all in one location is nice. The domestic selection is pretty solid, including some hard-to-find things like Parabola. For whatever reason people don't think to check BevMo for these things, and their website inventory system sucks, so they'll often have beers well after other places are sold out.

In short it's worth stopping by every now and then, especially near a big release, because other people don't often think of it.

This is a decent BevMo. The selection appears to be similar to that of most other good BevMo stores.

They have an impressive number of beers; probably more brands of beer than any other non-Bevmo store I've been to.

However, in searching for top rated beers I was only able to find the usual handful that I can pick up anywhere else. It'd be nice if they carried more Beer Advocate top rated beer.

Most beers are stored at room temp on the shelves, but a good number are in a decent sized fridge at the side of the store.

Unfortuntately, they won't let you break up a four or six pack, so you can't just buy a single bottle of a beer; I hope BevMo changes this policy soon, because it's annoying for folks like myself who want to try as many different beers as possible.

Still, a very good beer selection.
