It's a Bev Mo. In general, you know what your getting here. You can find a fairly wide variety of craft beers, as there are 4 large racks of beer, plus 2 more for imports. Yea, their refrigeration section is small, but unlike some other Bev Mo's in the area, they do shade the windows from the afternoon sun. And the craft beers are a few aisles away from the windows. You'll get a much wider selection of quality brews than any grocery store other than Whole Foods. And the prices are right...so, enjoy!

Visited this Bevmo in order to locate beers not at my local Bevmos.

aid out n what I think is a L shape with the beer facing a window..mmmm. Selection was deeper than the Gilroy Bevmo and close to the Camden location.

As with other Bevmos-I am always unsure how long the beer as been sitting on the shelves so I was able to pick up three single hop IPAs from Hermitage Brewing (San Jose) because knew they were new. They had a few Miikellers and an Avery 12.

Service was non existent and if they would have allowed me to ring myself up I would have better service.

As with other Bevmos-go often so you know how fresh the beer is.

I stopped here first on my trip in hopes of loading up on some stuff I couldn't get at home. Prices were affordable, and selection seemed decent, but remember this is California now. For instance, I couldn't find any Russian River beers and I don't think I bought my Hair of the Dog beers here either. It appeared they had tastings here from time to time, but perhaps that is the standard issue with this chain. Might be a place to stop for the less sexy local beers, then to pick up the rest at a better bottle shop later.

Your standard Bevmo. A bit on the small side when compared to some of the other Bay Area Bevmo's. It has a very small cooler with a rather poor selection of beers. I really wish that Bevmo put more beers in their coolers instead of leaving the all out on the shelves. I couldn't detect any difference in selection or stock than any other South Bay Bevmo's. Because of it's smaller side it's likely that it doesn't carry some stuff that might be found at the Camden location. However, if you happen to the live in the South Bay, Bevmo is your only option for a decent beer selection.
