ISO Beers Beer Bar & Bottle Shop
ISO Beers Beer Bar & Bottle Shop is a popular bottleshop with a unique BYOF or Bring Your Own Food dynamic. They only serve 21 and up as well so minors are not allowed (and no, your fake ID won’t work here boys). The beer bar and bottleshop specialize in producing and selling craft beer that is some of the most popular drinks in town. The shop’s BYOF coupled with its amazing craft beer really packs in the experience that most people couldn’t enjoy in other bottle stores. You can also bring your dogs and lounge on their patio, hanging out and chilling with your burger and beer or whatever you’ve bought. ISO Beers have their signature craft beers on tap and in bottles to go.

Great beer selection of only local craft. Bring your own food and you’re good. – Thomas Watson
Kelly’s Liquor Store
Kelly’s Liquor Store is a family-owned bottleshop that has been in business since the late 1930s. For almost 80 years, Kelly’s Liquors has been a staple in the San Jose area as a go-to booze store. A pioneer in the San Jose liquor scene, they have been providing a quality selection of craft beers, fine wine, and top-shelf quality liquor. Kelly’s Liquors are above and beyond better than most corner liquor stores in your neighborhood. The reason is that they are directly a good source for craft beers and other quality ‘apple juice’ *wink wink* at very reasonable and competitive prices, which is a steal in our opinion, given the quality and wide selection they have.
Craft beer, fine liquor, and wine.

Love coming to the adult candy store. They have everything we possibly need. Obviously, Don Julio is our favorite. But they always have anything we are in the mood for in stock. It also helps to have the App to check stock so you don’t take an unnecessary trip. – Victor Sanchez

Don’t believe Google’s description of this place as a “spartan” liquor store. They have an incredible craft beer selection, and the owner David is a gracious host. Their wine selection looks solid, too, but I’ve never really looked closely. – Evan Thomas
College Market is a popular hub for all things alcohol and has the convenience and prices a 7 Eleven gives you but with way better selections. College Market is not your typical bottleshop, you can also stock up on groceries if you need to alongside your usual pick me up of beer, wine, and liquor that has arguably some of the most affordable prices available in town. Their two stores both have an amazing selection of booze alongside their grocery options. You can also get your itch off since they also offer lotto and scratch card tickets. College Market is very convenient and the staff is always helpful and funny.
Liquor, beer, spirits, wine, groceries, lotto tickets.

The first time I went to this market I think was 1974 can’t believe it’s still here and they’ve got good service and nice owners – Paul Porter
