3/5  rDev -5.7%

Raja's has a decent selection of craft beer. They were overcharging for RR beer a couple months ago, but it has now gone back to the same price, so I started shopping there again. I go there to search for beers I haven't tried as well as their prices that are lower than bevmo. They have top tier beers around a dollar cheaper than bigger chain stores. The only con, is that they don't keep a lot of the good stuff refrigerated. I usually look at their shelf of craft brews and then check what they keep cold. My last three purchases were: Cafe 15 Racer-$7.99, Blind Pig-$6.99, Double Jack-$6.99.

Raja Liquors got the BeerFly ball rolling on a recent trip to the Bay Area. It's a somewhat largish establisment, tucked away from the street behind a Round Table Pizza. From the enterance, just head straight to locate the beer.

Some of the beers are refrigerated, and some aren't. I didn't see any dusty bottles, but seeing a collection of Sculpin bottles with the old label makes me second guess the condition/freshness of the beers. I found beers from Unibroue, St. Peter's, Speakeasy, Russian River (including several from the -tion series), Lagunitas, Ballast Point. I picked up a bottle of Ovila for $9.99, one of the less expensive prices I saw for that beer. In general, I would the say the prices were reasonable.

As I purchased my bottle, the checker commented that the Ovila was a good choice. "A Belgian style from Sierra Nevada", he commented. By the sound of that, it sounds like these guy may know a thing or two about beer. It's no Perry's in terms of selection, but at least it's less expensive.
