vibe: 3.75 | quality: 4.25 | service: 4 | selection: 4.25

First stop of the day, heard this was the new south bay drugs so I was looking forward to checking it out. Atmosphere is pretty laid back, maybe a little stale. We were the only people in the place other than the guy behind the register and I am not even sure he noticed we came in. Once we finally walked past him he asked if I needed anything but we were already heading out the door having not found anything I hadn’t already purchased elsewhere. Quality was pretty good. I didn’t notice any out of date bottles and they had lots of different glasses to go along with them. The selection was pretty good. I noticed some decent bottles but there were also a bunch of holes in their stock. Prices were pretty good, a few definitely on the high side but all in all it was reasonable. Overall a pretty solid bottle shop, I was expecting a little more but thats my fault not theirs.

I wanted to keep my favorite bottle shop on the down low a little longer but they deserve mad props for the business they do here.

Bine & Vine is a smaller sized bottle shop right below the Normal Heights sign and please note parking here SUCKS! Expect to park a block or two away at night or take your chances in a handicap stall for 10-15 minutes. These guys feature a nice wine selection in the center of the store with some craft soda and sake on the right wall and excellent selection of glasswares but the beer is what keeps me coming back.

The selection here is rotating but fresh and they have a blog which accurately updates which beers have just arrived, they will even heavily discount beers to clear older stock but their clientele seems fairly knowledgeable so old beer is rare unless it is truly poor. The prices are better than most, given the selection and they sell singles of alot of 12 oz. beers and if you buy 6 it's 10% off.

The man to talk to about beer is Geoi he's always engaging and knowledgeable about the beer scene, I believe he's had every beer he's stocked or at least intends to try them to give his customers an honest review.

I make the trip down the I-805 least once a week and it's always worth the drive.
