This Bernal Heights gourmet shop focuses on craft breweries, artisanal cheese and chocolate producers, and small distillers. Though owners Mat Pond and Holly McDell are particularly known for their selection of brown spirits—including the shop’s legion Whiskey Club—the beer section is similarly sprawling, including purveyors like Fort Point Beer Company, Evil Twin Brewing and Moondog Brewing. Pond and McDell stock a particularly impressive assortment of porters, stouts, dark ales and barrel-aged sours. Check the shop’s Facebook page for the schedule of free in-store tasting events.
