A decent little bottle shop right next door. Heavy on the SoCal stuff and Belgians. NorCal and the rest of the West Coast conspicously absent.

Quality of the stuff they do have is top notch though. The service as well, very knowledgable. Price is a little more than I liked, but Socal, I guess everything is a little pricey.

Ambiance, no frills, this is just a bottle shop, and that's a good thing. Was kinda surprised how small it is. But you just can't pass up picking up a bottle, I was drinking and eating next door, such an enjoyable experience, and then you get treated right when asking about selections, you can't help but pick some stuff up, even if you might find it a little cheaper or somewhere else.

My only criticism would be that there isn't much variety, but it does seem to change a bit, so its got that going for it.

A good little spot to stop for bottles, especially if you are already headed to Pizza Port for a pint or two. It is fairly small but has a solid bottle list. When I was there, the service was very friendly and knowledgeable as well.

It's always nice to have a bottle shop around. No, it's not the most beautiful place, nor does it feature the largest selection, but they stock an impressively eclectic collection of good beers for so small a place, and enjoying a bottle right there is a plus.

As mentioned in another review, Texas Liquors, just down the street, does have a better selection. Love them too, but check the bottling date if you're buying something that is date-sensitive.

I would agree almost word for word with Bfarr's review three years ago. If you're at the Pizza Port and want to pick up something to take home, it would be the logical and convenient place to go. Otherwise I'd suggest Texas Liquors a few blocks east for a vastly better selection and about the same issues with old bottles.

Wide array of southern California breweries, though not a lot of depth. I did not find much of interest to me, even though they are so close to the Vista and Escondido brewing centers. But it's worth a visit if you're having a taste in the next-door beer garden. Though that suffers by comparison with the expansive outdoor spaces at Bagby just up the coast highway in Oceanside.

This would be a great Bottle shop on its own, but combine it with the Pizza Port located next door and it is a match made in heaven. Great selection, and awesome outside area to enjoy a few brews with your food from next door.
