Good to great selection (Fifty Fifty, FW Special Release, Bruery). Nice service. Good pricing. If you live in the South Bay, this should be on your list of stores. I follow them on Beer Menus.

From the outside, you'd think this was just a neighborhood liquor store with BMC, screw top wines, and low end bourbon. But you'd be wrong! Slowly but surely, Royal has upped its game to where it's a big time player in the South Bay beer scene.

They are constantly bringing in offerings not normally seen in the area. Recently, I've seen Toppling Goliath (Iowa), Melvin (Wyoming), El Segundo (So Cal), Grimm (NY), Paradox (Colorado), and Jackrabbit (Sacramento). They dig deep into brewery lines, with more than just flagship products. And, as others have said, be sure to explore the back room, but wear a sweatshirt.....it's cold!

Stop by, in West SJ, at Winchester and Williams. You won't be sorry.

Very clean, well organized bottleshop. More upscale than your average liquor store.

They get a great selection of beers here. If you're looking for something specific, be sure to ask. They keep some of the more esoteric stuff in the back and they'll let you browse if you just ask.

Located in a quiet San Jose suburb, no major safety concerns. The store is well kept with a clean carpet (!!) and no bad odors. The beer selection is not the best but it's pretty good, and they provide regular updates on the FB page. Their fine wine selection is also much better than average for a liquor store.

Nice and clean store, they let you look around without standing over you asking if you need help every five minutes. make sure you ask if you can see the "back room" fridge there was a lot of nice gems in there.

Great selection in general but be sure to ask about the "back room". Clean shop, friendly staff. Royal Liquor's Facebook page. is updated regularly showing what they've just received from distributors. https://www.facebook.com/royalliquorssj
