The Jug Shop
The Jug Shop established in 1965 and has been a San Francisco harbor for a complete variety of wine, beer, and distilled spirits. Family owned and operated, their ideology combines dependable, personal service with educated and friendly staff. Whether you need help planning an event or finding the right gift, they provide individual attention to meet your needs. They know shopping for wine can be an intimidating experience.
That’s why they aim to help their customers learn about their own palates, ensuring they leave with a bottle that will make them happy, rather than what anyone else says they should drink. Unlike some stores, their wine buyers never make buying decisions based on points or reviews. With over 2000 wines in stock, their personal experience allows them to communicate what their customers need to know about wine in order to decide if it’s right for them.
Their wine staff offers a diverse range of experience and expertise. They travel frequently to learn more about their individual wine passions and bring that experience back to their customers. Their personal relationships with wineries and winemakers allow them access to unique items not available to the broader market.

“Cozy wine shop to spend time with friends or a partner. They have a wide selection, and the wines I tried were great. This place is really good when you want to unwind or relax. I like how calm the ambiance of this place. The food that I ordered matches the wine that I had.” – Asma F.
City Beer Store
City Beer Store began in the spring of 2006 as a haven for people who wanted to scout beer and desired to join a community. That’s the straightforward explanation, what it grew into is more refined, it grew into a family complete with laughter, richly woven stories, classic moments, and love. Their original idea of a retail store built around the concept “sip while you shop” grew into a full shopping, sipping, and dining experience in 2018 when they moved into a new space complete with a complete service restaurant.
Their City Beer home was designed with a ‘choose your own adventure’ style in mind. Space burrowed to sit quietly thinking on the day with a fresh draft in hand, a space to gather with friends sharing beers and snacking, a space to perch chatting with a favorite bartender, a space to step inside quickly to grab that must-have 4-pack, and a space to move around enjoying all the elements.

“This store/bar is amazing. If you are anywhere near mission street and have any affection or curiosity for amazing and interesting beer, then visit. Drink a beer off the tap, but a bottle and drink it there or take them home, everything goes. Highly recommended.” – Bruce H.
Cask strives to bring you the best of every spirits category. Their emphasis goes beyond the hard-to-find bottles, they seek quality spirits from small producers near and far and work with artisans who have a passion for their craft. They value transparency, honesty, and sustainability when seeking new products. From classic single malt whiskeys to traditional single village mezcals, they question and pay attention to every detail in order to bring you great spirits, wine, and beer.
They want to share their excitement and knowledge with their customers. Cask Store is their ongoing journey to explore and satisfy the need for different and special products. They don’t offer every brand under the sun for the obvious reasons of product quality standards and marketing gone wrong. Instead, they have a focused beverage program offering superior quality products.

“The good place for some high-quality liquors purple whiskies and scotch. Strongly recommended.” – Chris G.
Ales Unlimited loves beer and takes it seriously. They go out of their way to make sure they offer the biggest and best selection, over 850 beers, and counting. They take great care of the ales they stock. Large chains put every beer on the floor thinking you, the customer, won’t notice how stale it gets. Not them. They run two cooling units with different temperatures to keep the ales as fresh as possible.
At Ales Unlimited, they are dedicated to bringing you your favorite brands from brewers around the world. They are proud of their store and, after you visit, they are sure you will love coming back for all of your favorite ales.
