Friendly helpful staff. Plenty of good stuff, and you can get a mix-six. Prices are a little high, and the selection could be better, but all in all, good place, and less than a block away from the Ballast Point Tasting room.

Stopped in after visiting Ballast Point tasting... great place and awesome selection, especially one of my new found favorites The Lost Abbey... they even had some of their Angel Share Ale, which I would recommend getting before they are gone. They were willing to ship anywhere in the states also which is helpful. Staff very nice and helpful too.

I visited this location since my hotel was near Little Italy and wanted to try another bottle shop in San Diego.

It was good. They have most beers on shelves on the wall, and had 3 coolers. The selection isn't as good as BDBS or my regular bottleshop in Los Angeles, but they carry quality stuff. Also, since Bell's is only distributed in San Diego for now, finding Bell's beers here was a plus for me. I didn't inquire, but you can pay a corkage fee and drink beers on site which is nice if you're meeting friends, and then have dinner afterwards at one of many nice restaurants nearby.

Overall, a solid bottleshop. I'll visit again next week since I'm down in San Diego again.

Update - 2/4/2015: They moved across the street to a brick building (almost directly across the street from Ballast Point). The bar is larger but the beer selection may have gotten smaller.
