Stopped in for a beer after visiting North Park Brewing.

Selection was not huge on tap, but of course everything they have on tap is pretty interesting. Selection for shopping at this location was quite good -- several things I couldn't resist. Bar service was friendly and efficient. Definitely a great stop if you're looking to shop or just looking for a good beer.

Small bottle shop with excellent selection of California craft beers. 5 or 6 big cooler on left side of store organized by type e.g. hoppy, stout, wheat, etc. They sell single 12s (thumbs up imoge). Friendly knowledgeable staff... on the pricey side... wine & cheese shop also.

Great selection, small laid back bottle shop that lets you drink there. De Garde on tap and guy running the place was very friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely go back.

This Bottlecraft location is similar to their sister store in Little Italy. The selection of beers here was quite nice. Some beers were on shelves and others in coolers. This location had tables and I believe a cheese/meat counter to enjoy with beers that you drink onsite. Most beers are probably purchased to go.

Overall, a solid bottleshop. I'll visit again next time I'm down in the North Park area of San Diego. Enjoyed my visit.

Despite it's limited size, this is quite possibly my favorite bottle shop in San Diego. Solid selection with plenty of great/often not easy to obtain beers regularly coming in. The staff are all cool and seem to genuinely know/love their beers. Parking in North Park can be a bit of a hassle depending on what time of the day/night you're trying to go, but you can generally find something within a block or two.

I'm partial to the Little Italy location, but this one is nice too.

Can't drink on the premises here, which is a big factor in liking the LI spot more. They do have a few taps for growler fills here but the tap selection is more limited.

Bottle and can selection is great.

There's also a cheese and meat deli here. Nice.

Very nice bottle shop with an excellent selection in a smallish store. Had plenty of fresh Pliny in the cold case and lots of other nice local (and non-local) bottles.

This was the 3rd of 4 bottle shops I visited while in San Diego last week. The other 3 being the other BottleCraft, Bine & Vine, and Krisp Beverages. I think I would rank this 2nd to Krisp Beverages. I found some great rarities on the shelf including Goose Island Halia from 2013, Rodenbach Caractere Rogue, and 3 Fontenien Oude Kriek!

Very nice small store. The staff there was very friendly, asked if I had any questions. I came drove in from Utah with high expectations. I was happy with what they had but expected a bigger selection. They carried many of the different breweries but was only limited to 3-4 different beers per brewery. I found myself getting some beers from other locations instead. Perhaps I should have gone to their other store Little Italy?
