Visited store while visiting from the Midwest. I was disappointed in selection, even Safeway had better.
I found a couple of Port Brewing IPAS to take home and enjoyed talking to staff.

Quite possibly the best liquor store in San Jose, if you are looking for craft/micro brews. They've got an excellent selection of both domestic and foreign micros including beer from legends like Russian River, North Coast, Ommegang, Lost Abbey, Firestone and Stone. They also usually have at least a couple different "Lips of Faith" brews from New Belgium and several great Belgian beers. The staff are young, knowledgeable and friendly and seem genuinely excited about the great beer they stock. If you want to support a small, local business instead of big chains like Bevmo, this is the place to go!
