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.

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
