Within a short walk of the Blind Lady Alehouse rests another outstanding San Diego bottle shop. Beer & Vine brings a clean, desirable beer shop for the locals and out of towners alike. At the door you are greeted by a small display of bottles beers. Much of the center floor houses non-beer libations. If beer is your beach, check the fridges along the perimeter. With that in mind, much of the beer is refrigerated, reasonably fresh, and kept away from the light (more on that later).

While Beer & Wine doesn't offer the same share of exclusive bottles which Clem's does, there's nothing to snear here. Well, unless you're not impressed by Russian River, Drie Fonteinen, New English, Modern Times, Rogue, Allagash, Ballast Point, Lava, or Maui. I saw listed prices on each bottle/multi-pack, and was greeted with quick service at checkout.

One aspect annoyed me however; it was too dark inside! For some of the bottles I was reading, I actually had to use my smartphone as a source for extra light. Other than that, I would come back again and again.

Pretty good selection of beer and wine. They are very knowledgeable on both sides. The young guy (sorry I am forgetting his name) only puts beer in there that he likes. The older guy ordered some wine that they didn't have for my wife, which arrived in less than a week. Prices aren't bad, definitely better than Clem's down the street. They have single bottles/cans available and have a few deals here and there.

Stopped here on the way back to Mission beach after an Alpine Trip. Had called Geoi (Joey) a couple of weeks ahead to order stuff (and pay for it) and then have him hold the stuff for me and he did. I had wanted some Alpine and wasn't sure at that point if I was going to be able to make it to the Brewery so he said he would make sure to save me 2 Pure Hoppiness's but to call him a week ahead so he could get me fresh ones. I did and he did! Lots of good stuff in the shop Geoi's guy there made some excellent reco's for me and was a good guy. Highly recommended.
