    Bourbon Destinations in the Bay Area?

    We'll be there for the next week. Looking for tips on good bourbon destinations. We loved Alembic last time we were there, so we'll likely make another trip. Any particular stores worth visiting outside of BevMo?
    Also, if anyone wants to point me toward some fertile hunting grounds, send a PM!

    There is no bourbon anywhere north of SF; I know this for a fact. Don't even bother looking. Seriously. Nothing to see here.

    Really.

    Will keep that in mind. Thank you for saving me from useless hunting time!
    And thanks, guys, for the other tips. I'll try to check some out.

    Has anyone been to The Broken Record? I heard they had a pretty amazing whiskey selection.

    Re: Bourbon Destinations in the Bay Area?

    Does anyone know if there is any Woodside Partners Reserve left? Was it the Village Pub or maybe the obvious Woodside Pub that had these special Van Winkle bottlings? I stopped in while making sales calls a few years ago and enjoyed a pour or two. I'm also fortunate enough to have an unopened bottle. I recall that the restaurant was off the beaten bath but quite busy for an early afternoon when we stopped in. If you're in the area and they still have some of their selection left it might be worth a stop. Perhaps one of you locals can refresh my memory on the name of the restaurant and whether they still have any of their selections left.

    Blackwell's in SF just sent me an email. They have some Willett's of various ages in stock if that's something you're interested in.
