Finally made it DO while on one of my every once in awhile Beer Safaris in San Diego county with my SD based son. Met Dave after many phone calls but no visits. Place was just as great as I had hoped. Not huge but exceptionally good selection. Grabbed more than a few west coasters for the trip back to east coast. Really enjoyed talking beer with Dave. Special guy. Clearly knows his stuff, big passion...and just great guy. What's more to love.

Awesome place, amazing selection, great customer service. Best craft beer shop in san diego. The place is a little run down but they're in process of fixing it up and you wouldn't expect the find this jem in this strip mall but the selection is amazing. I shouldn't say this but if you're anywhere in SD county you need to come here.

Just moved to the area and was trying to find the best place in town. The minute I entered the door, the guys working the counter were very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The selection of beers available were top notch. So glad this place is right down the road.

Simply Sublime, Dave is incredible, his beer selection borders on ridiculous. I drink motor oil and sours, he has a sick collection, and new arrivals in all the time. His collection of Almanacs, Russians, and specialty imperials is wonderful. Greatfully it is only 2 miles from my house.

Visiting San Diego from Idaho so I thought I'd check out some bottle shops while I'm in town, my friend had mentioned Distillers Outlet in Poway, being that I was staying near by I thought I'd have a look. Wow the selection and service was awesome. I started talking to David who was a big help, he is super friendly and knowledgeable. I enjoy Barrel aged stouts so he pointed me in the direction of a few really nice ones.Overall great experience, if you are in the area or even if you aren't Distillers Outlet is worth seeking out.

This place is by far the best bottle shop around in terms of service. These guys really know their stuff. You can tell how passionate they are about their product and they never gouge, even on extremely rare beers. It's a bit smaller of a place so their selection is not as great as some other places, but they somehow almost always have what I am looking for. Keep in mind that they also keep a lot of stuff in the back, so don't be afraid to ask about any particular brews.
