One of the better craft beer selections that I've seen in a BevMo. Especially when comparing it to the Central Valley's BevMo's. It's a chain store so the atmosphere is average. Nothing special at all. But 2 of them employees know their beer, the other ones don't, but Zach and Tim know beer and are always really helpful. They get some limited release stuff and it's usually sitting at least a few days for people. Got Stone Enjoy By, Firestone XVI Anniversary really easily. Should get the Abyss easily too. For normal pick ups I prefer this to Perry's for the cheaper price.

Atmosphere - Located in a strip mall by the highway in Livermore. As you walk in the place is clean and well lit with the beer section along the wall on the right and in some coolers on the back wall.

Quality/Selection - They don't really have anything that you cant find at other stores in town. They do carry most of the brands that are popular but generally just the year round beers.

Service - The workers at this store have never been able to help me with any of my questions but what do I expect from a college kid whos probably only making minimum wage.

The only thing that keeps me coming in is that the prices are pretty good so I can save a few dollars here over Perry's on stuff they both carry.

Went here a couple weeks ago on my way to San Jose. I thought to myself fuck it, I've never been to this one and I might find something.

I was wrong, I didn't find anything I wanted that day but they did have a better selection than the Stockton Bevmo. I did see Rochefort 10 and several DFH beers that Stockton doesn't carry. Other than that, it's a typical Bevmo. Small and the selection isn't that great.

The employees seem very unknowledgable about beer. I seen a price tag for Parabola but the shelf was empty. I knew that Parabola wouldn't be out for another 2 weeks but I asked anyway. The employee said that they just sold out and they won't be getting anymore in. I highly doubt that the 2010 bottles would have lasted this long on shelves.

3 of my friends went there the day Parabola was released and was able to get 6 bottles because it was a 2 bottle limit...I thought they weren't getting anymore? Hmmm...

I stopped by this BevMo for the first time yesterday afternoon. That'll probably be the last time I stop there as well.

Just like all other BevMos, the beer selection here was large. Actually... it wasn't that large, especially by BevMo standards. Only one aisle was dedicated to beer, and it was about thirty feet long. Weak. On top of that, the selection lacked anything rare or local. It was sad. The entire aisle was filled in with the most popular U.S. and European craft beers, along with a smattering cheap lagers from exotic nations. Possibly the worst beer selection I've come across at a BevMo. Still, it's a BevMo - you're bound to find something that fits your bill.

The workers seemed pretty lazy and unwilling o help. Two of them stood in front of the back wall coolers chit-chatting the entire time I was there. Neither one budged or offered assistance as I stood two feet from them trying to look around them to see what was inside. Whatever, it's BevMo - I'd call that standard.

With so many good beer stores in the area, there's no need to stop here.
