A new beer store/bar located in the San Pedro Square Market in downtown San Jose. They have several large coolers full of bottles. The bottles can be consumed on site or anywhere in the market. No corkage fee and they give you a glass of course. You can also take the bottles to go. They recently added 6 taps as well. The selection is very good. Mostly top-notch American craft and Belgians. Service is also very good. The store is ran by very knowledgeable beer geeks and they can help you choose something to suit your tastes.

This is really a great spot, as is the entire market. It's a great fit. Lots of food options, music events, great outdoor seating, and now great beer as well.

Bottle selection is similar to that of a Whole Foods. Taps are pretty limited and usually focus on one brewery. Although the staff seems knowledgeable, it's essentially a high-end food court, and has no ambiance or "beer bar" feel. If you view it as a bottle shop, you're paying bar prices for your bottles, so not great on that front either. Go to ISO, Good Karma, or Original Gravity instead.
