Like the gentleman said earlier on this page George was a pleasure to talk to and the selection is very nice don't let the outside look of this place throw you. Heavy focus on craft beer very little spirits.

Boynton Liquors is a fairly unassuming liquor store in a strip mall, however once inside you can see its obviously much more focused towards craft beer than liquor. Best mix a six pack location I have found in the San Jose area. Also has a good selection of more expensive bombers in addition to the 12oz bottles. The best part about the place was the service, I had a good time talking about beer with George. Beer prices were good, didn't feel like I was being gouged like I do in most stores in the area.

Pros:
This place is a total gem; run by a beer guy who clearly loves offering good beer. He even adds the BA ratings to the glass of the fridge, or the first bottle on the shelf, so that you know what you're getting. Very impressive beer selection and he'll talk beer too if there's no customers behind you. His prices seem competitive. The kicker was that he had some hard-to-find beers for the San Jose, CA area (and I don't mean the Pliny).

Cons:
If I had to find one, it's that it's disguised as a normal liquor store. It's kind of on the smaller side, and not overly organized.

Overall:
Buying beer from this place could be habit forming.
