This store is the best bottle shop in east county San Diego. I love coming here just to browse and most of the time I can't leave empty handed. The bottles selection is one of the best and the pricing is beautiful. Very very reasonable. the guys in charge have always been super nice and are always willing to help me out if I'm looking for something. I love that I can come here and get bottles sold out in most places. I almost feel like writing this review will kill my little secret. I hope not .

Went here because of a recommendation from a guy at the PtY tapping last night...so glad I did
Its a liquor store jammed full of beer. Mostly everything is in coolers and there is really no rhyme or reason to most placement, so spend time looking around.
Quality was great. Saw some RR sours and some other things and asked if there were more and got my fill.
The person helping me was great, very helpful and went digging and looking for all kinds of things.
Selection is vast. Lots of sours, belgians, locals, and things of all sorts. Its worth the trip 100%.
Its a short walk from the trolley orange line, but bring a large backpack or something.

Lots of bottles, most of them in coolers away from sunlight. Some more bottles up above on the racks. Great selection. Nothing too hard to find, but it is a little hidden gem that carries Alpine, Russian River, Lost Abbey, as well as Deschutes and a great selection of Belgians. Prices are reasonable, nothing noticeably marked up. The guys working are really nice and some of them know a little bit about beer. I can almost always count on them getting the slightly harder to find releases such as Dissident, Lost Abbey, and others. Definitely worthy of my money.

I had driven by this place before and didn't think anything of it -- the bright blue exterior with colorful art made me think it was just another beer store. Husband said he had heard good things, so we went on in. Came in expecting to find the usual local Stone and Green Flash -- was amazed to find a GROWLER of Alpine's Hoppy Birthday hiding in plain sight. The growler was not labled, but we had to know what it was. Then, we heard the magical words -- "It's Hoppy Birthday!" and it was all over. New favorite beer store! Beers as far as the eye can see, and all the staff that we encountered were genuinely friendly and helpful, unlike some big chain beer stores *cough*bevmo*cough*. If you're in the area, DEFINITELY come here. You will NOT be disappointed. Great selection of Russian River and Lost Abbey. We'll be back soon!

Palm Springs Liquor is a great liquor store. Their outside wall is covered with a mural of a sunny beach, definitely a nice touch that adds to the friendly atmosphere.
Inside, you'll find an excellent selection. They've got all the popular microbreweries like Stone, Rogue, Port Brewing and Lost Abbey, the list goes on. They have just about all the trappist brews (save for Westvleteren), American abbey ales from Allagash and Ommegang, some rare offerings from Russian River, Lost Abbey, etc. Also the German section is great, with Weihenstephann, Schnieder (including the Eisbock), Ayinger and more. Lots of great weissbier.
The owners (father + son) and other staff are very helpful, and it's obvious that they value their beer-loving customers. I truly enjoy giving them my business over some large chain like BevMo.
To sum it all up, there are three reasons I go to Palm Springs Liquor: their great selection, their great service, and their close proximity to my house! Now, back to the Pliny the Elder I just picked up (only 10 days old!), so I can move on to La Fin du Monde!

Man if your are looking for beer in the area, you don't need to go anywhere else. This Son and Father spot has a great selection of local SD brew and just about every great micro brewery too. The prices are awesome....most bottle shops have a huge mark up, but not here, they are just spreading the love. Just went in there recently for some supplication (Russian River, Parabola (Firestone), Just outstanding (Kern River), World Wide Stout (Dogfish head), and more. Most places have one fridge of good stuff, but this place has great stuff in every nook and cranny of the joint. Quick to deliver the limited stuff and the classic stuff always in stock. La mesa and east county in general used to have to go to Santee or SD to get anything good, but now we have a great spot in our backyard. Thanks for everything guys. Your new loyal repeat customer...Gabe

This place is a hidden gem. Almost all the beer here is in coolers so you can enjoy right way. I have found some bottles here that everyone else was out of and it was 100% fresh. Daniel helped me out twice so far and was great. The prices are fantastic. I think they use a basic cost plus model instead of simply raising the prices of the rare stuff. The overall selection is great. It is not a big store but they do have a lot of beer. It does not look like much on the outside or the inside for that matter.

As others have mentioned, Palm Springs Liquor is certainly a hidden gem. Neatly tucked away in the far side of La Mesa, Palm Springs has an abundant and surprisingly unique selection of bottles. Unlike most shops in San Diego, I found Palm Springs to have bottles that others just don't have. As I browsed the cooler doors, I found local favorites, Belgians, limited releases and many other great beers. Choosing just a few was difficult, but I managed by telling myself there will be a next time. If you're in East County and are looking for something specific or just want to mix it up, I would definitely recommend Palm Springs Liquor. They just might have what you're looking for and more.
