What kind of beer do you crack open for refreshment when you get home at night? These are the best places in the county to stock your fridge or beer cellar.

Place

Bottlecraft North Park

3007 University Avenue, San Diego

Place

Bottlecraft

2161 India Street, San Diego

Bottlecraft

The many positive qualities of these shops include great selection and knowledgeable staff happy to talk about beer. From a practical standpoint, being able to split four- and six-packs makes it a candy shop for the adventurous beer taster.

Brother's Provisions

16451 Bernardo Center Drive, San Diego

Brother’s Provisions

It’s tough to make it to the bottle-shop portion of this North County shop without getting caught up in the fancy meats and cheese on display by its deli. Best to order a sandwich and a pint on draft, then sip as you browse the comprehensive local, domestic, and international selection.

Place

KNB Wine Cellars

6380 Del Cerro Boulevard, San Diego

KnB Wine Cellars

You might pick up a nice bottle of wine here, if you’re into that sort of thing. You certainly won’t have any trouble locating quality craft brews. Expect a selection of creat beer produced in the Southwest and up the coast, including some lesser-known locals.

Place

South Bay Liquor Store

1355 Broadway #L, Chula Vista

South Bay Liquor Store

Not much to look at on the approach, but this liquor store’s shelves are packed tight with rare, exotic, and bottle-conditioned beers, with plenty of imports.

Place

Texas Wine & Spirits

945 Carlsbad Village Drive, Carlsbad

Texas Wine & Spirits

Possibly the most valuable bottle collection in the county sits a few blocks from the ocean in this slightly dingy Carlsbad Village shop. It’s mighty impressive how obscure some of these beer labels get.
