Free standing building with small parking lot a bit north of downtown. One row of coolers filled with bombers and 4s and 6s, and an aisle of shelved bombers. Only one case of singles - wish they would expand that. Descent selection, although kinda run-of-the-mill, and definitely on the pricey side.

Quality Market is located near the Mission Valley area of San Diego. Since it was not too far from my hotel, I took Uber there. I'm glad I did. From the exterior, it looks like your standard liquor store. However, once you step inside, you can tell they take great care in their selection. They had coolers of bombers and six-packs. Also, an entire shelf down the length of the store with craft beers. The beers were everyday craft beers to hard-to-find ones.

Nice shop! I'm glad I visited today. Will be back when in the area.

Online beer order. Well laid out website. Everything was done in world class fashion...process, selection, fair pricing, packing and speed of execution.

Stumbled on the Quality Liquor Store website in my quest to find some Pliny the Elder that wasn't being sold for $20/bottle. Not only did they have Pliny the Elder, but a lot of other great beers from Russian River, Port, and others we cannot get here in Missouri.

More importantly, the search function was easy to use, and you are able to quickly figure out how much of each product they have in stock. The checkout process using Paypal was smooth, and the items were shipped quickly and packaged well.

I will definitely be back the next time I get a craving for beer not available in the center of the country.

I have been dealing with this web site for about six months, and I cannot say anything but the best about Vince. The site itself has a bunch of great products that I could not get here in Pittsburgh. The emails I receive letting me know of new products are fantastic. It usually results in me making another purchase. As for Vince, I have talked to him a couple times and he has always let me know about something that he is out of and did not update the site, or when his shipment is coming and if I wouldn't mind waiting a day. He is fair, honest, and dependable. I can't wait to get out west and actually get into the store, instead of just buying online.

I stumbled across their website when searching for pricing on Pliny. Since the Yelp reviews were positive, I decided to place a mail order (I'm in Illinois) for 4 22oz bottles and see if this could be a source for Russian River and others I cannot get in Chicago.

Couldn't be happier with the experience. The owner, Vinny, contacted me personally to thank me for the order and went out of his way to make it a great transaction. Very impressed with the service. Not a superstore or even a large store (check out the picture on Google Maps). I thought the pricing was fair considering I can't otherwise purchase these beers locally. Shipping is what it is. Shipping bottles is never really cheap.

To sum up - great personal, customer service, great selection, great mail order experience. I know I will be back for more!

They get in rare brews that come and go or never see the shelves at other places. Sticks around because it's under the radar and it's not the cheapest. Great part is just ask for what you don't find and they'll try to get it. They have for me serveral times and in a timely manner. They don't have 100's of selections but they have and can get what I like. Always in the cooler which I think is a good thing. They aren't open that late and they have amazing deals on the cheap brews. Tues at a certain time I think? Like a happy hour at a liquor store!
