On a Sunday - Monday period in Mid October, I did a tour of San Diego breweries, brewpubs and beer stores. All the bottle shops I visited received A+ ratings with a significant number of reviews. My goal was primarily Russian River brews (Pliny, Blind Pig, Supplication) and then WC IPA's that I can't get in Ohio (Alpine, Kern River).
The places I visited in order of ranking...

1. 3 Way tie - KnB Wine Cellars, Beverages 4 Less, Best Damn Beer Shop
2. Holiday Wine Cellar
3. Olive Tree Marketplace
4. Pizza Port Bottle Shop

KnB would have probably come in at #1 for me if I would have gone later in the day when they were serving beer. I hit it early in the day on Monday as they were opening. Huge, outstanding collection of beers. Had all the beers I was looking for including Kern River (which I didn't see anywhere else) and DFH Bitches Brew.

This was one of four bottle shops I hit while in San Diego last week. Parking is a bit tricky as it is either street parking or pay through the nose at a lot that isn't exactly nearby. Keep in mind I was there at like 1:30 PM on a Friday. An employee did ask if I needed help. I picked up some Green Flash Cellar 3 bombers, Alesmith 2015 Decadence and Evil Dead Red. Really other than these beers, everything else was at either Bottlecraft location and definitely at Krisp Beverages.

One of my favorite places to go, especially on a Wednesday night, where it's $3 and $5 draft beers. They have a great selection on tap and pretty good selection on bottles. Prices for the bottles and cans are fairly average, but not over the top. My only drawback with this place is the service and I'm talking the restaurant service. It's always slow going and poor service in general. And that's every time I go.

Made a stop here to see what I could find that wasn't available back home, did not find to much, although the selection was good it was not amazing. I probably should have been more pro-active and asked for those that I was after (Russian River, etc.). I had an average experience and would probably go again if I am in the area.

One of my favorite places to stop when visiting. I don't have annoying people coming to me telling me what I should try that's new from CA breweries and instead I get an awesome selection with an always awesome tap list! Food has always been great and I just love the vibe I get when I'm in the store. Would recommend stopping here for lunch and something delicious on tap either before of after you shop for some great bottles.

I visited here recently on a trip to San Diego. It is a great bottle shop with a good wine selection, as well as a bar that serves food. It's a nice place to visit, especially if you have someone with you that prefers wine to beer, you can get both at the bar. We had some great guacamole, a pint and a glass of wine.

The selection wasn't the largest of the bottle shops I visited in San Diego, but they did have three bottles of Supplication which I quickly purchased. Of the four bottle shops in San Diego, I visited, this was the only place that had Supplication. Service was friendly, but not overly so.
